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! Just about the best product I've ever found for giving ceilings a makeover. Very thick, doesn't trip and covers a multitude of sins. Did a brilliant job of minimising the appearance of cracks and also whitening a ceiling that had been browned by years of cigarette smoking. Ordinary white ceiling paint is like painting with water by comparison! So relieved we found this product. Worth every penny. We've also used it on walls.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Like a facelift My bedroom ceiling has experienced some WWII bombing a few blocks away in Balham. Only a complete re-plaster would eliminate the appearance of spidery cracking...which wasn't an option. I also wasn't inspired to spend days and days with polyfilla, which wouldn't have done much anyway - so this seemed like a good idea. It goes on in 1 coat which is fantastic, and it really makes a difference - it doesn't make it a pristine surface, but it is a tangible improvement.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Solved Problem Of My Damaged Ceiling I found this paint to be very easy to apply and went surprising far. Cracks all but disappeared. I used the silk version, which is more reflective and in my opinion, much better a camouflaging a damaged ceiling like mine. Avoided an expensive replacement ceiling as results are perfectly acceptable.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Hmmmmmmm Hi all. i bought this paint to cover various plasterboard movement cracks that have appeared on my downstairs ceilings. and unfortunatly did not fully live up to my expectations The Good Points Very Thick Paint, Doesnt Drip Much Low Odor. Seems To Dry Quickly Doesnt Need Stirring (However I Still Did) The Bad Points. You use quite a lot of this with a roller, not sure if i actually met the coverage on the tin. Whilst it covered up many hairline cracks, some of the larger cracks (i dont class them as much worse than hairline) are still there, however with reduced noticability. The Price... Nuff Said *** may not be the paint, however the ceiling has dried a different colour to the coving (they were both white)*** Overall has made an improvement to all cracks however they arnt hidden as stated. But how much difference compared to normal matt emulsion i cannot say

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish Doesn't do anything that a standard white paint does. Does not cover cracks, and Does not prevent them. Total waste of money

Rated 1 out of 5 by from rubbish polycell. dulex everytime Doesnt cover imperfections or stains and wont hide anything. Worst product ever and expensive. Not ever worth a star. One good thing it doesnt drip.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Rubbish It may cover cracks, but it does not hide them, unless of course they are hairline and you can hardly see them anyway. The cracks on my ceiling could be described as hairline, but can still be seen after two coats, especially with the light on. The paint did go surprisingly far, but does not take away the fact that it does not do what it says it should. Plus it is expensive. Waste of money...

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Doesn't do what it says on the tin! I must admit that I am starting to go off the brand name products. B&Q base coat for cracks and surfice inperfections did a better job than this Polycel Crack Free product. Are ceilings had hardly any cracks, and the ones we did have were less then a hair line. This product seems to highlight all your problem areas instead of covering them. Oh and the silk version is no better than the Matt. I advise to buy a cheap base coat of B&Q's allow to dry, apply another coat if needed and then pain with your desired colour. That's what we did on the ceiling in the next room which was a worse than the other and B&Q's products done miles bettter at a lot less cost.
