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 Valspar undercoat Will not use any other brand but Valspar now, as they really do the job well. Have tried the other paints and emulsions in the range, and all give excellent coverage, go on smoothly and clean up is really easy.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Water soluble undercoat I chose this undercoat as I really wanted one that was water soluble , and it seems that so many aren't these days! I have been using it to prime some wooden furniture and this is great as it goes on smoothly with low odour, dries quickly and cleans up easily, without the need for any solvent cleaning products - all a must when working in a small, inside space! I find a little goes a long way and prefer to do 2 thin coats, worked in well, rather than a think coat.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Works well, just like it says on the tin...... I had some doubts at first, as the last B&Q paint wasn't very good. However, I'm glad I decided to try it. It went on very well & the colour match was excellent.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Valspar white primer and undercoat Good paint but very difficult to get lid off as metal bends too easily.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Valspar water based paint Not as tough as a solvent based paint, easily chips and lifts with low tack masking tape. It is very white, but overall would not use again.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Wish I hadn't used this product I've just finished using this product, and had a complete nightmare cleaning up after. The packaging is not helpful, advising 'brush cleaner' (?!) Also, I found this product stinks discusting, there is no need for this level of VOC's.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Water Based Paints for wood I was advised to use a water-based undercoat and gloss [ white] to avoid the yellowing that is common with oil-based paints. I followed the specialist advice to use acrylic brushes, not bristle brushes. New, quality brushes were purchased. The paints were applied to 8 ready-primed doors having a very smooth finish. The undercoat was ok to apply but when I applied the gloss it was impossible to eradicate brush marks.no matter what technique I tried. I reverted to a non-drip gloss. Had to prepare all surfaces AGAIN
