How to prepare walls for painting

How to prepare walls 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.

Buyer's guide to primers

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 Excellent if you follow the instructions! I've no idea why there are bad reviews. I had a very cracked, uneven ceiling with paint peeled off which made for a very uneven surface. I used this product, with a TEXTURED FOAM roller, not spread too thinly and the end result is perfect. Super product!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful product!! I wish I hadn't bought it! I wanted a typical artexy kind of finish - this didn't do it! You can't use a foam roller, so I used the fluffy roller - went on better with that, but it looks awfully patchy. Going to need a second coat for definite, and I'm only a quarter of the way around the ceiling (room is 12foot by 7 foot) ..... and I've already lost the will to live!!!!!!!!!! Very disappointed. Don't know how I'm going to get it off now it's on - but guess I will just have to plod on and finish it! Makes a terrible mess - more on the floor than the ceiling and for £32 ..... total waste of money! Gutted :( . I'm going to scour the tinternet to see if there is a knack to doing this - not hoping for much luck tho lol :/

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful for covering ceilings We bought this to cover a slightly bumpy ceiling in our bathroom. We had wanted a typical Artex finish, which we have elsewhere in the house. This is essentially thick paint however. We tried stippling it when brushed onto the ceiling and it just dripped off. When we applied it in a thinner coat it did not cover any of the bumps in the ceiling. Very very disappointing. We are going to try mixing polyfilla into it to see if it helps...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not easy to use, incorrect coverage guidlines This is not an easy product to use. The instructions say to use a foam roller for best results, but rollering this on really not easy, certainly not using foam roller as suggested. You need to get this on thick otherwise it goes patchy and the grit compound in it doesn't get evenly spread and it looks terrible. I'm sure there is a knack to doing it, but don't expect to get this good first time around. My second major complaint is the coverage - the tin says 24 to 34 square meters. This is a joke / just plain wrong. I see on the web site here it say 2.2 sm / litre, which is nearer the mark. Unfortunately, I bought it on the strength of what it said on the tin, so I've not got enough. I wouldn't have bought at £32 if I'd needed two. I think it's probable you can get good finish if you really lather this on...but rollering isn't going to get you this, and it's going to get very expensive. Look for another product...
