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 Excellent Coverage I bought this paint to cover my existing doors which were a gloss finish. It covered all the gloss and within two hours was totally dry. Left the doors looking perfect ready for the top coat, and the brushes were very easy to wash out afterwards. a very good price and just as good as any named product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great purchase at an excellent price! I was looking for a white undercoat to cover my wooden window sills indoors after sanding them down to a smooth finish. Most of the original paint was left on, so I wondered if this low cost product would do the job. I was pleasantly surprised that it gave a very good finish after one application. I was so impressed I added a further coat and was so happy with the finish, I decided to leave it without giving it a top coat of gloss. I like the matt finish. It is a very good product, much thicker than anticipated, low odour and easy to clean off your paint brush. Well done B&Q!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GOOD RESULTS I bought this over 1 month ago to use at various times on different surfaces. Application dries well and quickly but sometimes needs another coat. Sands down well. Overall a good product, good price

Rated 5 out of 5 by from No Problem with Use. I have been using this product as an undercoat for years now without any problems. On rubbed down white paintwork like doors the cover is excellent with no brush marks showing. New primed wood.....2 coats minimum need to be applied. As for Lady who complains about a smell ??? never in 10 years of using this paint have I ever smelt anything...... and the Lady about "bleeding" knots in the wood......yes, it will, it is water based paint product and wood knots should be treated to seal them before any undercoat or top coat is applied. Anyway, I am off to buy another tin today and I would not be doing that if I thought for one moment that this undercoat paint was not going to be any good.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from excellent value paint with good adhesion and cover iv been up cycling my furniture for months and this stuff is great. I always use 2 coats as a matter of course and its not pure white before applying top coat but the results are still great.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value. Have used this to undercoat several B&Q interior white 6 panel Georgian doors. Does the job well. You get what you pay for......possibly .....but I have no complaints. Went on smoothly. Good drying time and no brush or roller marlks.
