Have you ever painted a room in your home? It might have been a little daunting when you initially started, but you probably soon found out that it wasn’t as complicated as you first thought. In fact, with the right tools and a little bit of information, you should be able to make your home look like new.

One of the most important factors that contribute to a paint job well done is the choice of paint. If you go ahead and buy the cheapest paint you can find, you can not expect a good looking paint job. Instead, spend the money to get paint that will hold up, look good and cover well.

One choice that you will need to make is whether you want to use oil based paint or water based paint. If you are putting paint down on a surface that will see a lot of wear and tear, you should definitely use oil based paint. You need to pair this paint up with a brush with natural bristles to get the best result possible. On the other hand, for a water based paint, you should use synthetic brushes, since natural bristles will absorb the water and make the paint dry too quickly, causing it to clump up and streak.
