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 Bought this to undercoat the walls in my daughters bedroom, and it worked exactly as promised, meaning that I needed to only do one coat of most of the colours. Would definitely use again and recommend to everyone

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Waterrrr This paint was really watery even after it was shaken well with the lid on and the stired for several minutes

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Poor quality Low opacity and quite thin. Drags across the surface rather than brushing out. Never in my life have I had to sand down a primer before this. I would not buy again.
