How to prepare a wall for painting

How to prepare a wall for painting

While it can be tempting to get painting as soon as possible when you want to decorate a room, it’s worth taking the time to make sure your room and surfaces are best prepared before you begin. Getting the preparation right is crucial to achieving the perfect finish. It’ll also help to keep things neater and cleaner, and reduce the need for additional coats of paint. No paint can completely cover dirty or uneven surfaces, so tackling this at the start of the project avoids the need for extra work later on.

In this guide we’ll walk you through the most important steps to take, and show you how to;

  • Empty your room ready for decorating, and protect fixtures and fittings you aren't painting
  • Clean your walls to help paint adhere
  • Fill holes and cracks and smooth your walls for the best possible finish
  • Prime stained surfaces or those which have not been painted before

Once you've completed these tasks you should have a smooth, even surface ready to be painted.

Primer buying guide

If you're painting on bare wood, plaster or metal surfaces, you'll get a better result if you use a primer first. It provides a surface which the paint can bond to and stops the paint being absorbed. Find out more what you need and for what surface.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Coverage Scraped polystyrene tiles off the ceiling, sanded down and covered with this product, it took 3 coats but saved us having to renew the ceiling. Big thumbs up

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Super coverage Used this to cover a very dark emulsion and it did the job very well. Its a thick mixture and applied better with a roller than a brush, I put a light dulux colour over it afterwards and the result is great.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Polycell 3in 1 Basecoat I have used this product before and was delighted with it. It does just what it does on the can. It covers cracks, blocks stains and obliterates strong colours. I needed to cover up previous damp stains, small cracks in an Artex ceiling and cover quite a strong colour without the expense of several coats of paint and the labour involved. One coat of this product and one coat of Matt Emulsion on walls and ceilings...perfect finish. I have since moved and am about to start decorating again, so going by my previous experience. Polycell 3in 1 Basecoat was my must have purchase

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covers knackered walls easily I've used this paint over and over again. It does need to be slopped on thickly and will, therefore, be slightly rippled, but combined with a decent matt emulsion over the top gives a lovely finish. I tend to use two coats (usually loading a small emulsion roller straight from the pot!) as this is generally enough to flatten out divers and cracks after sanding. As other reviews have noted, it goes on a bit like PVA glue so is not great for fiddly jobs where you're worried about losing detail on architrave and the like. I would never use another base coat, unless it was a perfectly flat, replastered wall. It also does wonders for covering up any slightly rough joins after caulking and, if rolled on with a gloss roller, gives a nice base coat for woodwork (and is much, much better value than the expensive primers sold for using with chalk paint)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent service I have used this product before and it is excellent at creating a good base for a top coat, covers well and hides many imperfections.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Magic paint, worth every penny. Bought this to use as a base coat on walls that were deep purple and in bad condition. After a bit of polyfilla and sanding, we used 2 coats of this basecoat and it covered every spec of the purple very well. Like other users, you have to be aware where you've used it as if you re-use it over a patch you've just done, you pull it off with the roller/brush. Tip - use a roller and literally go from top to bottom and DON'T roll back up again like you would with normal paint. Let dry for a couple of hrs and put on 2nd coat. Also used this with a brush for brown mahogany doors as a basecoat prior to glossing and it was EXCELLENT - 2 coats and the brown was completely gone. Highly recommend. 5L pot did the 2 coats in spare room and 2 coats on the double doors.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worth the price I removed all wallpaper in a house built in 1979, spent time sanding and filling. Then used this stuff and it gave a really good clean base for the paint. It tacks quickly so don't stand back and look every 5 minutes, get the room ready and get on with it, don't stop until you are done.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I love this paint! I know it's a bit expensive, but this paint really does work. It covers cracks and gaps. It goes on really smoothly with both brush and roller. I'm a messy painter and this being a little thicker than normal paint means I haven't got paint running up to my elbows! It gives a great matt white covering - though I did need to use 3 coats to give a good even coverage over my biscuit coloured walls. I don't bother painting over it. Looks great as it is.
