    I hired Yogesh for the renovation of all the four floors of my house, all interiors as well. I had a satisfactory experience with him. He suggested fantastic ideas for all our requirements texture painting on walls. Earlier all the floors were of the same pattern, and now with his help, we have managed to inculcate different ideas to all the floors. He has really good knowledge of the colour and pattern combinations. Labourers hired by him were also very nice, very respectful towards all the family members.

    What person Mr Zaidi is ? both as a professional and human being.. Due to our personal problems, we had to change the color of the rooms, we just discussed it and mr Zaidi did it with a smile. This has been the response through out the work done by him . He has excellent team who are also as polite and professional as he is . Very meticluous and committed . The did all the work himself removing the material from one room to another even before we said it. Our involvement in the entire white washing was very minimal. After sometime he became like family member I will very strongly recommend him for all type of work which he does... We did not know him previously and hence want to see the work done by him in the previous house and I got the similar comments from that houselady about Mr Zaidi and she strongly recommended him for the work. read more

House Painters in Delhi



Have you ever wondered what really makes a house ready to move in? Most people would answer it is after it has been painted. For a home that you have lived in for several years, a fresh paint can breathe new life making it feel brand-new again. Good paint makes a home stand out. It dictates what the home feels like for the inhabitants as well as guests and visitors. The same is true for commercial buildings and offices too.


House painting is one of the few aspects of constructing a home that people can do on their own. However, it is unlikely that a normal person with little or no experience will be able to do a passable job, leave alone a good one. An important part of the identity of a home is best taken care of by experts.



Why You Should Hire a Professional House Painter



Professional painters can help you achieve the result you want from painting your house. They bring a lot to the table. Professional painters understand that painting a house or building is about more than just home paint colours and shades. Here are just some of the aspects that they will take care of.





    • Preparation: The walls need to be prepared as do any metal and wooden surfaces. This may involve sanding, putty filling, primers, etc. The total paint cost may vary depending on the preparation required, the size of the area to be painted, etc.





    • The Right Choices: The finish of the paint is equally important. A colour that looked great on the rendered image on a computer may seem entirely out of place with the wrong finish. Professional painters will be able to guide you in the right direction with your home painting ideas.





    • Efficiency: Professionals providing painting services know how much paint to use and how to use it. There will be no drip lines and no unnecessary coats that waste the paint.






    • Equipment: Modern professional painters will not simply ask you to buy paintbrushes. They bring their own modern gear. Their tools include brushes, patching tools, mechanical sprayers, rollers, paint trays, ladders, etc. More importantly, they will also bring their own safety gear and other protective gear.






    • No Spills and Marks: Professional painters will ensure that your floors and furniture are adequately protected from any spills. This is especially important for inside house paint jobs.





    • Time-Saving: A team of professional painters will give you a time schedule and stick to it. You do not have to keep guessing how long it will take before you can move into your home or start using a room again. You will also avoid mistakes and potential injuries.






    • Quality: Professional painters will ensure high-quality results. They will ensure clean lines, using tapes where needed for the perfect end result.




Types of Paints for Walls



Before you think about hiring professional painters for home wall painting or commercial painting, it is important to decide the colours and shades you want. And before you choose the best exterior house paint or interior paint, you will need to understand what the different types of paints are.


Paints can be classified based on several factors but the two that matter are their composition and the type of finish. To understand what kind of paint to pick, it is important to understand the differences.


Composition

Paints are usually classified as water based or oil based. However, on rare occasions, you may come across terms that combine the two. Here is a brief overview of the terms used to describe paints based on their composition.





    • Latex Paints: Latex means that the paint is water based even though the paint does not actually contain any latex. This is one of the most common types you are likely to see when you go shopping for interior or exterior wall paint.






    • Emulsions: Emulsions are water-based paints. They are often referred to as plastic paints too. Most Indian brands offer emulsions as mid or high-end products. However, they are also available at lower price points. This range of choice is important since emulsions are the best exterior paint choice. Exterior paint needs to protect walls from rain, dust, pollutants, and even birds and animals. Special emulsions designed specifically to use for exterior home painting will ensure your home or commercial property looks like new for years to come.





    • Enamel: Enamel paints are oil-based. These paints are generally not recommended for wall painting and instead used for metal and wooden surfaces. However, as we will discuss in another section, some enamel paints are sometimes useful as room paints.






    • Acrylic Paints: These paints use acrylic as a binder, making them much more durable than non-acrylic paints. Technically, acrylic paints may be both water or oil-based. However, you are only likely to find water-based acrylic wall paints in the market. Acrylic paints can usually be washed with water and mild soap or detergent.





    • Alkyd Paints: This is a type of oil-based paint that allows manufacturers to achieve a flat or matte finish with enamel paint variants. These paints can be easily cleaned with mineral spirits, something you cannot do with most emulsions.






    • Distempers: Distempers are essentially lime (or chalk) based paints that may or may not have a binding agent like acrylic. This is the closest you will get to “chuna” or whitewashing in modern urban homes. Distempers are slowly losing popularity due to their low life-span and common problems like flaking, chalking, etc. Distempers are often cheaper than emulsions but you will need more frequent repainting.





  • Limewash: This is the traditional “chuna” paint that was once common all over the world for interior room painting. Unless you are trying to achieve a certain look, this is best avoided in modern homes. These paints rarely last long, come off on touching, get flaky, prone to chalking, and are not environment-friendly



Finish



People are often more interested in choosing the best house paint colours rather than what it is made of. The finish of the paint usually also determines what it is best suited for. Besides the obvious requirements of shades that do not fade or become flaky after some time, the texture and finish of paints you use will influence the final look too. So without any further ado, here is a look at the various types of paint finishes that are available in the Indian market. The list is arranged in the order of increasing gloss or shine.





    • Flat: This is the least reflective finish available, even less than the popular matte paints. These paints are relatively rare in India whereas matte paints are much more readily available. However, they are a good choice if you are trying to achieve non-reflective surfaces. Flat paint absorbs rather than reflecting light. This also means that shades of adjoining walls and furniture will appear muted and subdued. This is the best house paint for areas that have too much ambient light.






    • Matte: Matte paints have a lot in common with flat finish paints. In fact, matte paints have been around far longer than flat finish paints. Thus, matte paints are what people think of when they are looking for a non-shiny look. However, unlike flat paints that have a smooth texture, matte finishes usually have a slight velvet-like texture. Matte house paints can also hide imperfections quite well making it a good choice as a ceiling paint. They may require several coats to achieve the desired look which makes them slightly less desirable for house wall painting.





    • Matte Enamel: This is a variant of regular matte paints. Regular matte paints are water-based, but matte enamel, as the name suggests are oil-based. However, they have a non-glossy finish unlike other enamel paints. These paints are not meant specifically as wall paints but are useful for wood and metal sections too. Matte enamel paints are durable and washable. These two factors make them a good choice as interior paint for kitchen and bathroom walls.






    • Eggshell: This is the first type of paint where you will notice a slight sheen. Moreover, these paints have a slightly rough texture, quite similar to actual eggshells. Not as shiny as gloss paints but more reflective than matte, eggshell finish paints have several characteristics common to both. The subtle shine makes eggshell finishes unique. This is not a look you can achieve with any other type of paint and the slightly rough texture hides imperfections decently enough that it can be used on such surfaces. Eggshell paints take fewer coats than matte paints.





    • Satin: Satin paints are like eggshell paints but have a smooth finish. For the longest time, semi-gloss and even gloss paints were often marketed as satin by some manufacturers. So, if you buy satin paints, make sure you are getting exactly you are looking for. Satin finishes have a slight sheen. With a spotlight, they can brighten a wall or even the entire room really well. However, being smooth and reflective, they tend to highlight imperfections. The wall must be perfectly smooth for best results.




  • Semi-Gloss: Semi-gloss paints have a noticeable shine. They are the preferred paint of choice for busy areas and surfaces that might see a lot of wear. They can be used for reflecting natural or artificial light off a wall and direct it towards areas with less ambient lighting. The shiny finish highlights imperfections. Care should be taken to prepare the surface carefully before painting. Semi-gloss paints are not ideal for rougher surfaces like ceilings.








    • Gloss: Gloss paints have the most reflective finish. They exude an aura of opulence and extravagance. However, poorly painted glossy surfaces can ruin the look of a room. When painted by experienced professionals, these paints can do wonders for your home. In addition to being durable and long-lasting, these paints are also stain-resistant. Gloss finish paints can be easily washed and cleaned with water and soap.

Wall Paints Classified by Room Type



Now that you know about the different kinds of paints, you are probably asking yourself “which one should I use for home painting?” You need to choose different indoor and outdoor house paint and also put the needs of the walls in different rooms into consideration. Here are our recommendations for the type of paint to use for each kind of room. The colours and shades are, of course, your choice.





  • Living Room/Drawing Room/Hall: The H of the BHK is usually the largest room in an urban home. It is also where you will be entertaining guests and hosting functions. This room establishes the identity of your home and how visitors perceive your entire house. You would always want to choose a paint that is

    • 100% Acrylic, preferably Latex Acrylic.

    • Any finish could work but most people stop at eggshell. Matte works well for most urban homes, though satin can bring out the best from any décor style. Avoid gloss unless you are trying to achieve a certain look.





  • Kitchens: Indian cooking generates a lot of oily vapours that no exhaust fan can truly eliminate. There are also bound to be spills. You may have already chosen to use tiles in the area surrounding your stove and sink but other walls can feel the brunt after some time. Most of all, kitchen walls need to be easy-to-clean. To that end, pick

    • Latex enamel works well. However, latex acrylic paints designed to be washed could provide more options.

    • Semi-gloss or gloss paint is the best choice since they are easily washable.





  • Bathrooms: Most people choose to use tiles but some do love a good paint in the bathroom. In any case, your walls need to be water resistant and durable. So, the paint should be

    • Latex enamel or washable acrylics.

    • Semi-gloss or gloss paintwork well. You could also try satin though it may be more expensive.






  • Bedrooms: Bedrooms generally see less traffic than the rest of the home. Moreover, you want walls without any glare (especially if you like an ambience with a night lamp) whether to you like to read, watch television, or work on your laptop while in bed. These are the same characteristics you want in a guestroom too. Pick a paint that is

    • 100% Acrylic latex with matte emulsions for trims.

    • Flat, matte, eggshell or satin are the best choices.





  • Children’s Rooms: For older children, you could use the same paint as your bedroom or guest room. However, young children will draw on their walls, spill food, stick up posters, and generally treat their walls like a blackboard or notice board. As a parent, you can try to teach them not to do that but when it does dirty, you also need to be able to clean it easily. Also, try and look for low emission paints. The term to look for is Low-VOC, where VOC stands for Volatile Organic Compounds. These are emissions from paint that give it the fresh paint smell and dissipate over time. But children can be particularly susceptible. With all that in mind, pick a paint that is

    • 100% washable acrylic latex or even latex enamel and low-VOC.

    • Satin or higher sheen paints ensure that it is easily washable.





  • Hallways and corridors: The right choice varies based on the amount of traffic in these places.

    • For high traffic, pick semi-gloss or gloss paints.

    • Low traffic areas can work well with flat and matte. However, in the absence of natural light, satin or eggshell may be better.





  • Ceilings: Ceilings generally have several imperfections since they are the hardest to smooth out. You can hide these imperfections with paint. Ceilings also do not need to be washed. So the ideal ceiling paint is

    • 100% Acrylic or water-based distemper.

    • Flat or matte is best. If you really want the ceiling to reflect light, you can try eggshell, but it will highlight imperfections.
