How to Paint a Room

  • The first thing you’re going to need to do is get the room ready for a mess! You will want to remove as much from the room as possible. You will want to remove any loose decorations, pictures, candles, pillows, etc. If possible, remove furniture too! This will help every step of the painting process move along quickly.
  • Now that you have your room cleared, you want to protect everything not being painted. If you’re painting your ceiling, you should absolutely have .31 mm painters plastic. You will want to cover couches, chairs, tables, beds, and so forth. Next you will need to cover all of the floors with painters tarps. This is important for a successful job.
  • So, everything is covered and you are ready to start painting. Not quite! You still have some repairsInterior Room Painting Cherry Hill NJ to perform. To achieve a professional painters finish you will want to pay special attention to this. Get your putty knife ready and start your spackling. Fill all nail holes, crack, and damages to your walls and ceilings. You can use 20-90 minute quick dry joint compound for faster drying. This product will not be pre-mixed but sold in a bag. While you’re out looking for a bag of spackle, pick up some caulk. Next you will want to caulk all baseboards, trim, and casings. This will give a clean painting line when you start brushing.By the time you are done caulking you should be able to check the spackled areas. Sand the spackle and get the primer! Be sure to prime all spackled areas to reduce “flashing”.When you don’t prime spackled areas, the paint soaks in the top coat. This doesn’t always happen right away. After you’re done painting, you could return to find that your spackle ruined your paint job!
  • I think that we might finally be ready to paint. You want to start first with your ceiling. First brush in around your room. Don’t be shy with the ceiling paint. You can get paint on the walls too. Sometimes it’s better to get ceiling paint on the walls. This will help you get the perfect line when you start to paint your walls. Coat your ceiling two times. Remember, you’re not getting a house painters hourly rate, you’re doing things yourself. So make sure that you coat everything twice!
  • Our painting technique differs somewhat from what you would assume. Our team of house painters don’t just go right to the walls. The next step we take is to paint doors, enamel, trim, and baseboards. This is the proper second step for painting a room. Paint your baseboards and trim the same way you painted your ceiling. Don’t worry about getting paint on the walls. You want to get paint on the walls. You caulked all of your trim. Your baseboards are perfectly sealed. This will all make for the perfect canvas to place your top coat. It will be that much easier to get yourself a straight line. Start with only one coat of paint on the trim and doors.
  • Now that you have two coats of paint on the ceiling, and one coat of paint on all the trim, do you think you’re ready to paint the walls? I think you are. Get your six foot ladder out and let’s start at the top! Professional home painters do not use tape. We use brushes. We use very good brushes. Sherwin Williams paint store will supply you with top of the line Purdy paint brushes. The Benjamin Moore paint store will provide more Wooster bushes. Both of these paint brushes are great for professional painting. We recommend using a 2 1/2 inch brush for interior painting projects. Use a medium stiff to firm brush. I cannot stress to you how paramount a good brush can be when painting a room well. Let your brush do the work for you. They say “you’re only as good as your tools”, and this is correct. If you have cheap painting tools you will not have success.
  • Start painting your room from the top down. Paint only where you can reach to on your ladder. This means, if you are painting the top of the wall and around a door, do not paint the entire doorway. Paint only where you can reach to. Be sure to “feather the edges” with your brush. Don’t let a lot of paint sit in one spot. Feather and thin out paint where you start and stop. Try a few styles of painting when you start. You want to dip your brush in the paint and wipe off one side. Brush the paint onto the wall where you are going to paint. Don’t leave the paint on the brush. Dip from this as if you were painting a work of art. With your brush on it’s side, you want to wiggle until the edge of your brush finds the corner of the ceiling. Drag the brush quickly ahead. Moving the brush slowly will give you a shaky line. You can try giving the brush a lot of pressure to fan it out. You can try leaving the brush loose from presuure as well. Whichever style of painting you choose, be sure to move the brush quick and smooth. Be sure to feather all of your edges. After the top of the room is finished being painted. You will want to do the same with the lower areas. Put the brush on it’s side and find the corner. Make sure you coat both the high areas of the room, and the lower areas of the room twice before you are finished.
  • We are on to rolling. We recommend using a 1/2 inch roller nap for most surfaces. For smoother surfaces and new drywall, use 3/8 inch roller naps. Starting from left to right let’s get you ready to roll! Make sure that your roller is filled with paint. I don’t mean your roller pan. Although it is important to have that filled as well. I mean your rolling nap. When you want to paint a room like us professional painters do, this is important. Never try to “stretch the paint. When our master painters are hired for your home painting, what do you think we do? We try to get as much paint on the wall as possible. We will dip the roller, and put paint on the wall. Dip the roller and put paint on the wall again. Guess what, we haven’t even started rolling the walls yet. Get as much paint as you can on the wall. Now you can start rolling that area. Do not push hard on the roller. This is a common mistake. You do not want to shove the paint into the wall. You want to give your walls a beautiful top coat of paint. Move your roller from top to bottom feathering out the paint at the edges. Pushing lightly you will be able to give an even coating to your surfaces. Make sure to roll the walls twice! Let the first coat dry thoroughly before you begin the next. As soon as you are done rolling the second coat of paint, go behind your own work with rolling pole in hand. It is best, at this point, to have your rolling nap more dry than wet. Find any areas that aren’t smoothed to your liking. Find paint drips and “flashing” areas that need a little extra attention. NOW , you are done rolling.
  • So you may have been wondering something earlier. You may have been asking yourself if when you are painting the ceiling, and you are painting the walls, two coats of paint are important, why weren’t two coats needed on the baseboards and trim? It wasn’t needed then, because you are going to do it now! If you weren’t able to get that perfect painting line earlier with your ceiling. If you let the ceiling dry all the way, copped out, and used tape instead, you can get that perfect line now. I’m sure you had gotten some paint on your baseboards and trim. Spattering from the roller always occurs with baseboards. Painting the baseboards first at least once helps the final coat go on easily. The first coat gets into all of the hard to reach places that you just can’t get when you’re trying your hardest to get a straight line. Follow the same painting style that worked so well for you earlier. Paint all of your trim with a gloss enamel for the best results.

 Guess what everyone!

You just finished painting the house like a pro!
