    We spend a significant portion of our lives in the bedroom, and that's usually quite relaxing! For some people, the bedroom is a haven that they can escape to, forgetting about the stresses of the outside world.

    For others, though, the bedroom is just another room in the house that needs to be redone to their high standards. Kennards Hire can make that dream inside your head a reality.


    Out with the old

    Drab paint peeling off the walls? How about an old-fashioned style of wallpaper sticking out the wrong way? That's all fairly common, and you don't really want to be spending such an enormous amount of time surrounded by bad decorating.

    The Sleep Health Foundation of Australia suggests that adults need between seven and nine hours of sleep each night, and also that reducing the worries you think about during the day can help with a peaceful slumber. If you or your family members lie awake at night thinking about the project hanging over your heads - quite literally the peeling and old wallpaper or paint - then you could be improving everyone's health by getting into a bit of DIY.

    Old and worn wallpaper needs to go, so hire a steam wallpaper remover and get the job done quickly. You'll have no trouble with sticky parts either, as the steam helps to disintegrate adhesives that hold the old paper in place. If you don't have wallpaper, get onto sanding everything!

    Once you've removed that, you'll probably need to sand out a few leftover rough patches, and getting into those tough spots high up could be a challenge without an extension ladder.


    In with the new

    Finally, the painting itself can be an arduous task for anyone who doesn't enjoy meticulously going over every square centimetre and making sure an even coat is applied. What can you do to combat this? Use one of Kennards Hire's airless paint sprayers.

    These will make the entire job much faster and less taxing on your arms, along with keeping an even spread and that will result in a more professional-looking job. The choice of colour can also help, and the hot Australian weather has continued into Autumn according to the Bureau of Meteorology. Choosing Resene CoolColour paints, for example, can help to stop heat getting trapped in your rooms because of a protective barrier in the paint itself.


    A cooler, more comfortable sleep can be achieved simply by getting into your bedroom and removing that old paintwork. Help your loved ones and talk to Kennards Hire today.
