When you get a new house, you are probably tempted to do a little redecorating. If you want to paint and redo the floors, it can be difficult to know which to do first.

As Verona residential movers, we know the struggles of planning your renovation for your new home. Many people take advantage of the time before the moving truck arrives to do some DIYs, but here are some pros and cons to help you plan your DIY projects.

Pros and Cons of Painting First- When you think about laying your beautiful hardwood floors, your initial instinct may be paint first. This is a great plan if you have plenty of time.  You can paint without fear of drips and spills, but you do have to wait for the paint to set before you start laying the floor.  Not letting it set can cause it to absorb the dust and debris from laying the floor.

Pros and Cons of Flooring First- Tiling and laying hardwood floors is messy. The dust and scraps get on the walls and in the air. Laying the floor first enables you to clean up the walls and other surfaces so you have no dust or debris messing up your paint job. You will have to make sure you use tarps and cover the new beautiful floors before you start painting.

Either method will require prep and clean up, so pick the method that works best for you! Just like your move, the right preparation makes your DIY project a lot easier with better results.
