Do you know what one of the simplest ways for you to improve the appearance and value of your home is? It is to paint it. It is amazing how a simple paint job can change the way a home looks. And if you have a steady hand and a good eye, it is definitely a job you can do yourself.
There are basically two different types of paint that you can use, either oil-based or water-based. Both types of paint come with their own pros and cons.
Oil-based paint is good for areas that will see a lot of wear and tear since it can hold up better. It should be applied with a natural bristle brush for the best effect.
Water-based paint is a lot easier to deal with and clean up. For that type of paint, you should use a synthetic brush, or the paint tends to clump and streak a lot.
