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 Saved a lot of time and money I bought this product instead of Polycell Smooth Over to use on walls and this product seemed to be much easier to use. You have to work in small areas very quickly as it dries out fast but creates a good finish and was ready to paint after one coat. I would definitely use again and recommend on walls with small imperfections to cover. The tool also has rounded ends so you don't get lines too.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love it! We estimated we were facing at least £600+ Plasterer bill to skim our hall, stairwell and landing walls. Walls had an old fashioned "artex" type , swirly , raised paint effect and was ugly!! Saw this product and bought the 2.5l tub just to try it out. Worked like a dream and so went back and bought 2x of the larger tubs to complete the job. Totally thrilled with the results. Tips: Used a short pile roller on a mini roller. Load the roller really well and work in small patches at a time 1m sq. Take your time until you get the hang of holding the blade at the right angle and being in the right position to sweep in one single move. Keep an eye on the consistency, stir as often as necessary so that it stays creamy, much easier to apply. Overall, one of the best DIY products I've used for years. We've got great smooth walls, ready to paint and saved ourselves loads of money :-)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Roneal smooth and repair I was very impressed with this product, some of the aertex on the ceiling had come loose and had to be removed, leaving the ceiling looking a right mess,it was easy to put on with a trowel and stayed put being it had to put on quite thick in places,the finish was very good, not smooth ,had to match the remaining aertex, but could have left a smooth finish if required.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Once coming to the conclusion that using a roller with this product is just a silly idea (which took less than thirty seconds) & instead opted for a wallpaper stripping knife & the provided applicator, it was a joy to use & went on beatifully. As long as you've a drop of common sense & or practical ability you should have no issuse with this product.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Does exactly what it says on the tin I just used this product as a last ditch attempt before calling in a plaster/ papering with inch thick paper over the offending area. I'm a complete DIY numpty. I followed the insructions, used the tool supplied, I did need a second application to fill out some dodgy areas but am now left with a flat paintable surface. Exactly what I wanted to acheive and exactly what is says on the tin. It does take a bit of time and patience such as repeated attempts to load the roller to apply the mixture and I used a wallpaper scraper to apply it to areas too tight for the roller but the smoothing tool did the job fine. I had a few drag marks from bits of stuff I hadn't cleaned away and a few holes/ rough areas on the first coat. I left what I had done, the majoirty of which was smooth, to dry. Then the second coat filled in the remaining areas with no problems. I did also wet the smoothing tool which I think helped get a nice finish. I'd happily use this again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from doesn't do what it says on the tin Bought this to cover rough walls and ceiling expecting a paintable, smooth finish after only 1 coat. Found the product nearly impossible to apply with a roller (not supplied). Wouldn't go on thick enough to allow smoothing tool to glide over easily. I decided to apply one thin coat and go over again, hoping the second coat would go on easier but I ran out of product. Now have to decide whether to buy another (bigger) tub and pray or rethink completely. Read a review where someone used a trowel with this but to be honest if I knew how to do that I'd just use normal plaster.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Is this value for money? Not a value for money product for the average DIYer. It consists of a small bucket of plaster; a wiper blade of the type used for cleaning household windows and a couple of irrelevant gadgets, the last 3 housed in an elaborate and non-cost effective additional lid. According to the instructions one cleans the wall (did it) applies the product with a roller (not supplied) and wipes it flat with the blade, not unlike the practice of a trained plasterer. Why then are my walls, even the flat parts, patchy and bumpy and corrugated? For anyone who has any skill in plastering doing it the old-fashioned way is better and for anyone without these skills I would recommend avoiding this product. I wasted £32
