  1. Think before you discard

Wall paints are not bio-degradable so, if you are discarding it, make sure you do not do it as like normal garbage. Especially with cheap paints color, there is a chance it might contain toxic substances. It adds more problems along with drainage problems as well as poison the soil and water sources in Nepal, where there is enough problem already.

  1. Store for future

Latex paint is usable for up to 10 years if stored properly, and even more if it is oil-based. You need to seal it properly and store it in not too hot or cold temperature, in dry place. You can pick it up any time to freshen up your walls with a fresh coat, especially when the surface is stained and cannot be cleaned up.

Make sure to label the container properly with the date of purchase, approximate remaining quantity, and its color code.

  1. Donate

If there is no place to store, consider donating it to someone who would make good use of it. Donating does not always mean for “good cause type”. Though, it is always a good thing to do. You can give it away to anyone like your friend, family, or neighbors who might be wanting to paint their walls but not doing so due to budget constraint. You can also reach out to local school or people in need.

Why to inspect the house properly before buying?

Buying a house is a big decision and an investment of a lifetime. So, before you seal the deal looking at those wall colors, it is must to make sure you’re investing in the right place. It is, however, hard to see problems for a normal buyer and tell setbacks beneath those walls. We cannot tell how the house has been readied. Maybe it was made to live, maybe to sell making a decent impression, or maybe the casual issues are concealed with a temporary fixture. So, before you give away your hard-earned money, you need to consider these in Nepal.

There are two types of issues: One that can be fixed and another that cannot be.

Therefore, inspect it properly. Do not be swayed by attractive wall paints and vibrant shades. There can be bug infestations and mold infections lying in the corner, ready to bring in trouble. If unchecked, it can cost you so much later to get rid of it, not including the tension it brings along. Identify the use of cheap wall paints from stained, peeled and faded surfaces. If figured beforehand, you can ask the seller to fix it before you buy in Nepal.

Also, if the house is older than a couple of decades, there is a risk of exposure to lead and other volatile organic compounds (VOCs) through old paints. It is not used anymore due to the threat it posed but if we get exposed to it again, it can have negative effects on brain development in children and serious ailments in pregnant women and many more. To protect yourself from that, you can inquire about it from the previous owner and if yes, you can ask them to repaint it.

Above issues can be fixed with little expenses and are considerable. But some issues can affect the lifespan of the house. There can be faulty plumbing and wiring that can turn out to be a major issue later. Or, the cracks and defect being effectively concealed, especially one caused by a major earthquake. Some house may even have a weak base made for selling purpose. These cannot be fixed and puts you under the risk during the major earthquakes and other possible natural calamities.

It is essential to figure it out and dodge buying such houses. If you are not sure of doing it right yourself, you can bring in a structural engineer to check for structural setbacks.

Facing these paint problems? Where did you go wrong?

When you plan a painting project, everything may seem easier, which in fact is, if you do it right. However, if you don’t, everything can turn into a waste. Small errors can end your walls up into a mess. If you can see this wall paints problems in Nepal mentioned below on your exteriors already, know you have gone wrong somewhere while painting or afterward.

  1. Discoloration

Mildew, a fungus that flourishes in humid, moist, and warm weather, mostly causes discoloration. On top of that, if there are thick bushes, it can accelerate the growth by blocking airflow and sunlight.

  1. Bleedthrough

When you use staining wood like cedar and redwood and forget or skip to apply primer over it, stains can bleed through the paint. It ends up damaging the appearance of the wall.

  1. Blistering

The heat and moisture can cause bubbles leading paint to blister and peel. Another reason can be painting in the direct sunlight. If you paint at that time, it dries up quickly creating a layer over the fresh paint which leads walls to develop blisters. Improper surface preparation, as well as excess moisture inside home, heavy dew or rain, can be another reason.

  1. Peeling

If you notice your paint peeling, the reason is the same as blistering. Also, if there is moisture underneath the paint (usually in wet woods), it starts with cracking and ends peeling up eventually. The main source to the moisture and water is the leaking roof and cracked walls, but are not limited to it. You should check for leaking pipe, shower, or even the humidity in the room from the dryer.

  1. Chalking

If you are starting to see powder on your walls, know that it is chalking. Eroding the protective paint layer quickly, it ends up fading your wall. It, normally, is caused by the use of low-quality paint. Also, applying paint for interiors on the exteriors can lead to it.

These are the problems you mostly face on your walls if you skip using the best paints available. Also, proper surface preparation along with the use of primers is essential. If the problems have already started appearing, take an immediate action to fix it as its issues can be long term. However, if you are just beginning to paint, go with high quality paints to dodge the problems from appearing in the future. Choose the products wisely in Nepal.

Why dark color can be the one for your room?

People often do not like to opt for darker shades. Some do not due to their old beliefs of it bringing in bad omen to house, especially black color. Others are too afraid to experiment. Lighter wall colors are our top preferences as we are too used to it and know how it looks.  But, in this era of experimentation, should we really keep ourselves away from potential transformation dark wall paints can bring? Why should dark be your new favorite choice in Nepal? For drama it creates.

Dark hue circulates drama, excitement, and energy in the space. As lighter shades have become old-fashioned and dull, it can never spread vibe darker ones do. However, if you are impressed by the idea of it, do not jump into the strongest shade. Choose the right one for you with a calm head.

But, how to choose one?

Simple. Just pick the ones that can mix in with your current décor. You can also choose to redesign the whole room or change the stuff in the room such as curtains, tablecloth, etc. as per the color of your choice. Changing the whole room is capable of creating even more drama. If you think you are ready for this, let’s get started with how to break free from old plain monochromatic shades and add contrast to your environment as well as your life.

  • If you are up for extreme, go all black with dark colored curtains. You can add deep hued artifacts to put up a show on the walls.
  • If you are not, combine black with lighter shades. It can surprise you how black can go with any color.

However, these are not the only options for your walls. You can also go with other deeper shades of blue, red, green, and other hues of your choice to make it feel even more luxurious and comfortable in Nepal.

12 Paint tips to make your painting process easier

When we plan to paint for the first time, we fear about doing it wrong. If you are a first timer with a similar fear for your walls, fear not. We have got some tips to help you get through your painting project and make your time with wall paints more fun for you in Nepal.

  1. Buy just a single brush (two-and-a-half-inch angle brush with nylon or polyester bristles) of a good quality instead of many. Save money here and invest in some high quality paints.
  2. As soon as you finish painting, wash it up with soap and water to keep it in a good shape. If it hardens up, you are going to have hard time cleaning it up.
  3. Flip a five-gallon bucket, sit, and paint. You’ll save your legs from getting tired.
  4. If you prefer kneeling, strap on some gardening kneepads and get comfortable
  5. Punch holes over inner rim using a nail and a hammer to prevent paint from dripping down the side or pooling in the rim.
  6. Use the daylight to paint and keep the lights on to see the mistakes clearly.
  7. If it is a humid day, turn the AC cooler than usual to help paint dry faster.
  8. Open all the ventilation and save yourself from suffocation and headache paint smell causes.
  9. While painting higher surfaces, attach an extension pole to a roller to avoid doing up and down on ladder.
  10. You either prime properly, or you don’t. Prime it if it is an untouched drywall or plaster, if you are painting latex over oil-based, or if you are painting dark shades over lighter one.
  11. While working on the higher spaces, pour paint into an easy-to-hold container. Balancing paint tray up there usually means waiting for it to fall flat down. You definitely do not want a messy floor.
  12. If you spot some hardened paint clumps after everything has dried, get them off with razor blade or knife. Then, give it a quick dab of paint.

These tips can help you get though the hardships of juggling with paints.
