Basement Painting Tips-Don of all Trades

Basement Painting Tips-Don of all Trades

Painting your basement  can have a major effect on how the space looks and feels. It’s astonishing what a fresh coat of  paint can do when attempting to spruce up a room, and your basement no different.  Unfortunately,  bringing a basement to life  can be somewhat more difficult than other rooms in your home.

Numerous basements are just utilized as storage areas, but wouldn’t it be wonderful  to use your space as a home office, a basement gym, or a room your whole family can enjoy?

Below are some photos of a recent basement project our team at Don of all Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services  completed along with our 6 painting tips that we hope will inspire  and help to make your basement a friendly and happy place.

Tip 1-  Use Lighter Paint Hues

This isn’t as complicated  as it sounds.  Locate the places that get a lot of natural or artificial light and paint these areas with lighter colours. The whole point  here is to focus on the areas that are already accepting light and keeping the lighter paint colours  out of the darker regions of your basement.

Tip 2- Use Rich Colours

Applying rich colours will help give your basement an “open” feel. Numerous homeowners aim to achieve this with light colours, for example, white or yellow, however using a richly saturated paint choice like a Benjamin Moore Interior Latex Pearl Base Paint in Whale Gray Colour code#  2134-40   can be more effective than choosing an poorly saturated yellow paint as an option.

Tip 3- Reduce the Number of Colours

Using  a large number of colours can overwhelm your room. Interior  designers suggest utilizing the 60-30-10 standard to shield your room from having an excessive number of colours.

  • 60% of the room should be the dominant color.
  • 30% should be the secondary color.
  • 10% should be used for accents.​

For this project we made it simple. 2 colours were chosen to paint this basement space. A Pearl base Whale Grey hue  for the walls and Semi Gloss White Interior paint for the ceilings and trim. White window treatments were used as accents to finish off this now organized, fresh and clean space.

Tip 4- Add Extra Lighting

Light helps give the illusion that a room is bigger (and much cleaner) than the actual space. You can easily create this effect  by incorporating a table or floor lamp.  Track lighting or lights suspended from your ceilings can also be a simple and affordable  approach to include extra lighting.

Installing recessed lighting can involve more work and more expensive as an option however,  it adds a updated modern look and feel to a room.

A basic and affordable solution to expand the light in your basement space is through the use of mirrors.  Mirrors help “ricochet” the light around the room and give the illusion the space is larger.

For this basement painting project, the home owner decided to keep all  original light fixtures and pot lights but decided to replace existing light bulbs  with Ecosmart 60W  Soft White  LED Light BulbsThe EcoSmart A19 8.5-Watt LED Light Bulb can be used to replace a traditional 60W incandescent A19 light bulb. This LED light bulb has an output of 800 Lumens and can last up to 10,000 hours, saving you up to $56.65 per bulb over the bulb’s life. The bulb is designed for indoor use and features an A-line shape and medium base. EcoSmart A19 bulbs are perfect for your living room, bedroom, kitchen or any place in your home where you would use a standard incandescent light bulb. These bulbs give off a lot of light and were the perfect solution to  brighten up this basement.

Tip 5- Select A Glossy Finish

Because basements have a tendency to be damp, glossy finishes are an excellent paint choice and more suited to resist stains and moisture.  Remember to make sure your walls are smooth and clean before you apply the paint as glossier finishes tend to show imperfects more than other paint finishes.

Tip 6- Use Concrete Paint on Concrete Walls

Using concrete paint is a little different than regular wall paint because it generally requires more paint to cover the surface. When painting concrete surfaces keep in mind that it can take over a week to finish the job however, your concrete walls will be protected with the proper finish.

Cleaning Porcelain Tile & Grout Lines With Steam-Don of all Trades

After years of neglect, getting this basement decluttered and organized was a top priority. We’ve talked about this many times before, but organizing always starts with a ruthless decluttering. Get rid of everything that you do not need, use,  or want, or relocate those items that belong elsewhere. This helps clear the way for a good deep cleaning. A messy space is always harder to clean than an organized space but once this space was finally emptied out it gave room to move forward by giving the porcelain tile flooring good cleaning.

Cleaning  Choice For These Floors?

Steam Cleaning and Here’s Why

Apart from the fact that a steam sanitizer can kill bacteria and dust mites, it also ensures a chemical free clean, removing any concerns about potential health problems which could be caused by chemical gases and residues in traditional cleaning products. Steam cleaning requires no detergents or chemicals for the ultimate in safety for all the family including your pets. Steam cleaners are fantastic to clean porous tiles, smooth tiles and the are the best way to clean grout lines. These surfaces are usually hard to clean because of their crevices and pores, but hot steam flows deep into every nook and cranny to effectively loosen dirt, grime and grease.

After doing some research on line, we found the US Steam Falcon Commercial Steam Cleaner at  our local Home Depot Store and rented it out for the day to complete this project.

• 1-3 Inch Adjustable Triangle Brush
• Large Floor Brush W/Clips
• 3 – 1 Inch Nylon Brushes
• 3 – 1 Inch Brass Brushes
• 3 Towels
• Accessory Bag

Results

Before we started with the cleaning process, we gave basement floor a good vacuuming.

Following the user manual provided, we connected the hose to the steam cleaner. Opened the safety cap and filled the talk with water using the bottle and funnel provided then replaced the fill cap. We then plugged in the steam cleaner and pressed both the Power and Steam Release Buttons on the “On” position. The  Green Steam Ready  Light started flashing while the unit was warming up. After about 15 minutes the green light went solid letting us know the steamer was ready for use.

We bled the hose of water by squeezing the RED trigger to
shoot excess water from the hose into a towel for about 10-15 seconds. Waited  until green light came on again before starting to clean.  This unit was great because it had a STEAM CONTROL DIAL  to control the amount of steam released. By turning the dial counterclockwise, the steam would increase. To reduce amount of steam used we just had to turn dial clockwise.

We selected and attached the 1 Inch Brass Brush to clean the grout lines and the  3-Inch Round Nylon Brush clean the top of the tile.

GOOD TO KNOW: Keep away from steam cleaning too close to baseboards as they can get damaged in the process. 

It was surprising to see how much dirt and grime (the kind you don’t see) that was coming off the tiles and out of the grout as shown in the “before and after” photos provided. We filled many buckets over the cleaning process with clean warm water and mopped up the dirty and grimy residue left behind from the steaming process. We also  used it in cleaning around the toilet.

The US Steam Falcon Commercial Steam Cleaner is a great machine and uses no chemicals with it. It kills bacteria, eliminates odors and is Eco-friendly and  did a great  job on for this porcelain tile floor cleaning application.  We will definitely be using it again in the future and recommend this product as a “chemical free” alternative to our friends, family and clients.

Sheet Vinyl Flooring-Don Of All Trades

Vinyl is a great flooring preference  that fits every décor and budget. Vinyl floors are an affordable option that offers style, durability, and long-lasting performance. When installed correctly over the proper sub-flooring, vinyl is extremely resistant to dents, scratches, and stains.
Vinyl Flooring-Don Of All Trades photo 2[2] photo 3[2] photo 4[1]

Four more great reasons for choosing Vinyl Flooring  listed below.

Upkeep

 Vinyl flooring is relatively easy to care for. You have to make sure that grit and dirt are kept swept free to maintain the surface of the floor. Then you can use a damp mop and an approved vinyl floor cleaner to remove stains.

Comfort

Vinyl flooring does not get cold in the winter, and is generally soft beneath your feet. Some vinyl sheets and tiles have a padded layer that can make walking on these floors even more pleasurable.

  Economical

At the low range, vinyl can cost as little as fifty cents per square foot. However higher end premium vinyl materials can cost as much as ten dollars a square foot. The difference in price is determined by the quality of the tile, and the design options found in the surface.

 Water Resistant

 A well installed vinyl floor is almost impervious to water penetration, making this the perfect material for use in a bathroom, kitchen, laundry room, or other high moisture space in the home.
Sheet Vinyl Flooring-Don of All Trades

sheet vinyl flooring 5
sheet vinyl flooring 6

At Don Of All Trades Professional Home Maintenance Services, our Home Improvement Specialists,  recommended  this type of sheet vinyl to install in the bathroom for two reasons.

Reason Number 1:

The first reason was the concern of a potential “tripping hazard.” Our client has difficulty lifting  his feet high off the ground. The original  bathroom floor tiles were popping off and the  risk of potentially  falling was extremely high. With sheet vinyl you greatly reduce of trips and falls.

Reason Number 2:

And the second reason being that because he is an older gentleman, this  sheet vinyl flooring  would be a warmer flooring alternative in the winter,  giving him more comfort when he utilizes the bathroom facilities.

Exterior Painting-Getting Ready To List Your Home

If you are considering selling your home there are few  home improvement projects that have as great an impact as a new coat of exterior paint on your home.  Modifying or at the very  least,  refreshing the exterior paint on your home completely revitalize the look of your home and makes it more attractive to potential buyers.

It’s the first thing buyers notice when viewing a home and exterior paint also…

  • adds value
  • is attractive to a buyer
  • painting is a relatively inexpensive repair that goes a long way
  • fresh coat of paint goes a long way with buyers
  • paint and flooring are 2 areas that buyers highly evaluate when home shopping

Getting this house ready to list.

 

Fresh paint adds curb-appeal. Even if your home is well-taken care of,  chipped paint and a not so well-taken care of exterior could give potential buyers the illusion that the interior / structure is not well taken care of and scare people away.

That being said, if you’re planning to put your house on the market in the near future, you’ll also want to consider which shades will attract the broadest range of buyers.
