Painting is a job that requires a certain level of disruption to your home routine. However, when it comes to moving furniture, most house painters don't include this in their estimates. It's important to indicate where your belongings should be moved before the painting begins, and to remove furniture from the room as soon as possible. If you need help moving furniture, you can ask the painters for assistance for an additional cost.
But it's best to handle most of your belongings and personal items yourself. Moving furniture to the center of the room can save hours of time, but it's important to be careful when moving furniture as it can be easily damaged. When painting the ceiling, it's best to remove furniture from the room as soon as possible. If you can't move your electronics or furniture to another area, keep them away from the walls you plan to paint. Preparing your house before the painters arrive will only require a little planning on your part.
Whether you or a professional painting team are painting, there should be at least 2 or 3 feet of space between all the walls and any furniture or obstacles.
