Don’t postpone drywall repairs
Why? Cracks will spread and small holes will become bigger and bigger with every passing day. The larger the damage, the harder (and more expensive) the repair. Pay special attention to your water damaged ceiling: it doesn’t take too much water to cause the ceiling to collapse. The falling ceiling can not only cause further property damage, but is also a safety hazard!
Look after your new cabinets
There are plenty of ways in which you can preserve the shine and beauty of your cabinets. Make sure not to expose them to excessive sunlight, high temperature, or humidity. Moreover, try not to have your cabinets close to a heating or cooling vent as this may damage the material. Finally, regularly clean and remove cooking residue, fingerprints, dust, and debris from the surface to prevent build up.
Always consider the required maintenance before choosing wall or ceiling paint
Some types of paint and finishes are easier to clean compared to other ones. Obviously, you want to keep your walls and ceilings looking great for as long as possible, without you having to put in a lot of effort to maintain them. That's why you need to carefully consider the type of wall you're dealing with (bathroom, kitchen or living room, for example) and how much cleaning will need to be done afterward.
Remember to cover electrical outlets before painting
You wouldn't want any paint drops to get inside one of the power sockets and potentially damage it or create a high fire risk. The simplest way to cover an electrical outlet is to use a sheet of plastic and apply electrical tape on its sides. Just make sure that the cover is sealed tightly before you start painting.
