Top Techniques for Interior Painting Like a Pro

Step 1: Make Sure to Prep

Before you start painting, take some time to prepare your space:

  • Clear the room of furniture and cover the floor with a drop cloth.

  • Fill any holes or cracks in the walls with spackle and sand them smooth.

  • Wipe down the walls with a damp cloth to remove dust and dirt.

Step 2: Gather Your Tools and Materials

You'll need a few basic supplies to get started:

  • High-quality paintbrushes and rollers

  • Painter's tape

  • Paint trays

  • Primer (if needed)

  • Paint in your chosen color

Investing in good tools will make your job much easier and give you better results.

Step 3: Start Interior Painting

Follow these simple steps to paint your walls like a pro:

  1. Cutting-In: Use a small brush to paint along the edges of the walls, where they meet the ceiling, trim, and corners. This will give you clean, straight lines.

  2. Rolling: Pour some paint into a tray and use a roller to apply it to the walls. Start in one corner and work your way across in a "W" or "M" shape, then fill in the rest with vertical strokes.

  3. Work in Sections: Paint one section of the wall at a time, keeping a wet edge to avoid visible lines between sections. Take your time and work carefully.

  4. Apply a Second Coat: Once the first coat is dry, apply a second coat of paint to ensure even coverage and a vibrant color.

Step 4: Finishing Touches

Once you've finished painting, remove the painter's tape and touch up any areas that need it. Let the paint dry completely before moving furniture back into the room.
