Prep the Room

Before you start painting, you need to do some prep work. Clear the room of all furniture (or cover with a drop cloth) and remove decorations from the walls. Cover the floors with a drop cloth. Then, remove any switch plates, outlet covers, and window treatments. Next, use a damp cloth to wipe down the walls and ceiling to remove any dirt and grime. Finally, fill any holes or imperfections with putty and sand them down.

Prime the Walls

After you have prepped the room, it’s time to prime the walls. Priming is important to do before you begin any interior or exterior painting job because it helps the paint adhere to the walls and will make your job easier. Use a roller or brush to apply the primer, making sure to cover all the walls and corners.

Begin Painting

Once the primer is dry, you can start painting. Start in the corners and then use a roller to paint the walls. As you paint, make sure to cover the entire wall and go over any drips or missed spots. After the walls are finished, you’ll want to paint the ceiling, probably a different color than you painted the walls. For most people, white is a popular choice. Finally, you should paint the trim. This can be white or another complementary color to your wall color.
