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 Works! I bought a cheaper spray version which did nothing for our brown water stained ceiling. This did the job easily in 2 coats. Easy to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Worked really well Bought this on recommendation from the fitter of our internal doors. Once it's stirred up it goes on really easily. By the time I painted from the top of the door to the bottom I could apply another coat for good coverage. Making sure the knots were well covered. It matches the pre-painted doors as well. So, a little sanding to smooth out the 'hair's in the wood and one final coat - Job done! Excellent product.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stain sealer that actually works As opposed to some of it's better known rivals, this one actually does what it says on the tin. The shellac is its distinguishing feature and this does not dissolve other stains; it simply covers them in one application.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Best primer ever Great product covered my mahogany wood with one coat

Rated 5 out of 5 by from It Really Works I purchased this product after advice from B & Q lady in the paint department. My task was to paint a marble fireplace and this product enabled me to do this. Coverage was great and surface adhesion was beyond my expectations. will always make sure I have some in the garage for difficult to cover surfaces.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to apply This undercoat paint is so far the best I have used in over 30 years of decorating. It is like water so you need to be very careful not to get it everywhere. The coverage of a bathroom ceiling which had damp spots above the shower I've applied 3 coats over the area and the spots have now gone

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing product I used this on the recommendation from a professional decorator, it covered varnished dark wood easily and prevented bleed through . Cheaper at B&Q than other places. A little goes a long way .

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Sorted a problem Trying to paint false walls found where wallpaper was used previously the paste had soaked into the wall, every time I tried to paint the wall it would bubble up. As this is shellac based, it was the only product to solve this problem. Walls now painted like new.
