I want to paint and add new flooring in a room. Does it make a difference in what order I do these tasks?
Paint first. That way you don't take the chance of ruining your new floors with paint. If you have carpet that will be removed, take it up before painting so that you can paint the baseboards before you install new flooring. If you need to put a drop cloth on the floor for any reason, skip the cheap plastic ones and invest in a thick canvas drop cloth. Professional painters use these for a reason! You will use it for years to come and it can be washed.
Paint first, you don't want to ruin new flooring. Easier to touch up paint if needed.
So welcome Judy! Have fun with your project! 🌞
