Prepare your surface

The beginning stages of any paint job will require a clean surface. The first stage of painting a room will require a sponge and a bucket of soap water. Detergent used for your dishes will be enough. Clean the entire wall and remove any stains, dust and grease.

Mark Your Territory

If you want your first attempt at painting your room to turn out perfect, then make sure you use a standard brush and a roller. This stage of the job will need a basic brush for you to apply your paint to any area where you are pretty certain the roller won’t be able to access. Those sections will probably be the areas where your blue tape was used.

Think Efficient

If you hire an interior painting company to handle the job the first thing you will notice is that they are all about efficiency. Using your roller brush begin the process at one end of your wall. A professional painting service will advise you to use the W technique which is intended to cut your time in half. You may use other patterns; however, the W will ensure that maximum coverage is achieved.

Using your painters tape go ahead and apply a straight line across the base boards or bottom molding. Apply your paint below the tape and wait for it to be completely dry before removing the tape. The only thing left to do at this point is to clean things up and take out the trash.
