How to paint a wall & ceiling

How to paint a wall & ceiling

Adding a fresh coat of paint to your room is an easy way to refresh your space or change your style.

brightly painted wall

To get the best finish, it's worth doing some thorough preparation before beginning and then working systematically around the room. With the right tools even the more difficult tasks, like painting the ceiling, can be made easier and more efficient.

In this guide, we'll be:

  • Painting the ceiling, coving and walls in a room using a water-based interior emulsion paint
  • Completing these tasks with either a brush and roller, or paint pads

Before you begin

  • Are the walls and ceiling prepared and ready for painting? Our guide to How to prepare your walls for decorating will walk you through this essential process.

HOW TO PREPARE WALLS FOR PAINTING

  • Have you got enough paint? Check the details on the back of the can to make sure you've got enough for the surfaces you need to cover. Our paint calculator can also help.

CALCULATE HOW MUCH PAINT YOU NEED

  • Have you allowed yourself enough time? Take into consideration the drying time and number of coats of paint needed. Remember also that you'll want to complete all coats of paint on the ceiling before you move on to the walls.

Top Tip

Begin your painting nearest the largest window in the room, or a light source, and then in bands away from, and in parallel to, this. The light will reflect off the wet paint making it easier to see where you've been and identify any missed areas. If you want to take a break, try to do this when you reach the corner of a room rather in the middle of a wall, as this helps to prevent tide lines as the paint dries.

Safety first

Step Ladder

Think about how you're going to reach all surfaces safely. You'll need a sturdy step ladder or work platform. Consider using a roller on a pole where possible so that you can work at ground level rather than on steps.

If you have children or pets at home, keep them away from wet paint and whilst paint is drying.

Painting your ceiling with a brush and roller

Open paint pots

Step 1

Using a paint can opener, or a flat-head screwdriver, carefully open the paint can. Take a paint stirrer, and following the instructions on the can, stir the paint until an even, flowing consistency without any lumps is reached.

Step 2

Before you paint the bulk of your ceiling, paint into the edges of the ceiling and around any ceiling lights or alarms with a small brush. This technique is called cutting in.

  • If you're going to paint the walls after the ceiling. Use a 50 mm paint brush to brush a strip of paint onto the walls, which you can paint over later.

  • If you aren't going to paint the walls. Paint along the edge of the ceiling using a 50mm or 75mm brush. An angled paint brush will help you to paint a neat, straight line but if in doubt of how steady your hand is, use either masking tape to mask the edges or a paint shield to protect the wall.

Paint the edges where the ceiling meets the wall in one go to give the best finish. If you don't complete it all at once you could end up with a visible band around the edges from the paint drying at different times.

Top Tip

Whenever you are working with paint, keep a decorator’s cloth or clean rag to hand. This can be used to wipe and mop up any small drips or dabs of paint where you don't want it. Most modern interior emulsion paints are water-based, so a damp cloth is usually all it takes to neaten up a smudge in the wrong place.

Open paint pots

Step 3

With the perimeter of the ceiling painted, it’s now time to paint the rest. Fill the reservoir of the roller tray one-third full of paint. Using a roller with an extension pole attached, dip the roller sleeve into the paint and roll it firmly up and down the ribbed incline of the tray to spread the paint evenly. Avoid overloading the sleeve to prevent paint splattering.

Apply the paint to the ceiling using the roller. Move the roller over the surface, using random strokes and a light, even pressure. Each time you dip the roller in the paint, move it to an adjacent unpainted area and work back to the painted area in overlapping strokes to blend in the wet edges.

Open paint pots

Step 4

Once complete, allow the ceiling to dry following the advice on the paint tin. If more than one coat of paint is required, allow the recommended drying time and then repeat steps 2 and 3.

Top Tip

Sometimes you'll need to apply multiple coats of paint to a ceiling or a wall within the same day. You won't need to clean your tools between coats of paint if you wrap them securely. Wrap brushes, rollers and paint trays tightly with cling film and put aside until you're ready to recoat. This prevents the paint from drying out until you're ready to get back to work.

Painting your coving with a brush

Open paint pots

If your room has coving between the ceiling and wall, paint this before starting on your walls. Use a work platform or step ladder to reach the coving, and a paint kettle with hook to keep your paint securely in place.

Traditionally coving is painted white, but you can experiment with different colours if you’re going for a more contemporary look.

Step 1

Using a narrow brush, apply paint from the kettle to the coving in long, sweeping strokes. A 38mm or 50mm precision tip or angled brush will help to make light work of this. Try to avoid overlapping onto the ceiling either by keeping a steady hand or using a paint guard. On the lower edge of the coving, allow the paint to overlap slightly onto the wall below.

Step 2

Work your way systematically around the room, using long, even strokes to ensure good coverage and to blend edges.

Step 3

When complete, allow the paint to dry for the length of time specified on the tin. If you need to recoat, repeat steps 1 to 2 once the first coat has dried.

How to paint your wall with a brush and roller

Open paint pots

Once your ceiling and any coving has dried, it's time to begin work on the walls.

The steps you'll take are similar to painting a ceiling, only we'll tackle some of the particular challenges unique to walls - such as painting around radiators, windows and door frames.

Step 1

As with painting a ceiling, begin by cutting in around the edges of the room. This will include where the ceiling or coving meets the top of the wall, where the bottom of the wall meets the skirting board and around any windows and door frames. You may also have light switches, sockets, heaters and radiators you'll need to cut in around.

Use a good quality 38mm or 50mm precision tip or angled brush for this. These brushes should help you to paint a neat, straight line.

Open paint pots

Step 2

Pour emulsion paint into the reservoir of the paint tray until it is approximately one-third full. Dip the roller sleeve into the paint and spread evenly by rolling it firmly on the ribbed incline of the tray.

You can use a roller with or without a roller pole to paint walls - whichever you find most comfortable.

Step 3

Work out from the edges by rolling paint in 1m wide ‘W’ patterns and go back over the W to fill in the open areas. The aim is to apply the paint evenly and always work from a 'wet' edge. The edges need to be blended in to stop a ridge of paint from forming. Use a light, even pressure when working with the roller.

Top Tip

Try not to work too fast or you will create a fine mist of paint spray. Each time the roller is dipped in the paint, move it to an adjacent unpainted area and work your way back to the painted area in overlapping strokes to blend in the wet edges.

Step 4

Whilst the paint is still drying, use a radiator roller to coat the wall behind each radiator in the room.

Step 5

Once the first coat of paint has been applied, leave to dry following the instructions on the paint tin. If you're applying more than one coat of paint, it’s a good idea to remove and reapply any masking tape that has been used to protect other surfaces between coats Remove the masking tape slowly at a 90 degree angle before the paint fully cures. If the new paint does begin to tear, gently score the edges using a retractable knife and straight edge. Reapply tape to the surfaces that need to be protected before you apply the next coat of paint.

Cleaning your equipment

Open paint pots

Brushes

Brush all remaining paint residue to scrap paper or card to reduce the volume of paint on the brush. The bristles can then be washed clean using water, and a splash of washing up liquid if needed. Rinse the bristles through with clean water until all traces of paint have been removed. Use a clean rag or paper towels to dry the brush, and then leave to dry flat.

Open paint pots

Rollers

Begin by rolling as much remaining paint onto paper or card. Next, place the sleeve under warm running water until the water almost runs clear. Running a roller cleaner over the sleeve with a twisting motion can help to make this easier. Add a dab of washing up liquid to the roller and thoroughly wash in warm water. Pat dry with a clean rag or paper towels and leave to dry standing vertically on one end.

How to paint walls and ceilings using paint pads

Open paint pots

Paint pads are an easy-to-use alternative to brushes and rollers. The rectangular shape makes them great for painting right up against the edges of walls and into corners, and larger pads make them suitable for decorating bigger areas like ceilings. They cause less spray than rollers, but they do need reloading more often, so the job may take longer.

Step 1

Begin by brushing the surface of the pad with the flat of your hand to dispel any loose fibres from the paint pad.

Step 2

Pour the paint into the paint pad tray, then draw the pad over the built-in roller or over the ribbed part of the tray to distribute the paint evenly and remove any excess that could cause drips.

Step 3

Start painting near a corner and work in strips about four times the width of your pad. Keeping the pad flat on the surface, move it up and down the surface with a gentle scrubbing action.

Step 4

Similarly, to working with a brush and roller, work methodically around the room starting with the ceiling and then each wall in turn. Allow each coat of paint sufficient drying time before re-coating.

Questions to ask before you begin

Which room in the house are you painting?

What goes on in the room you are planning to paint? Maybe you are painting a kitchen or bathroom that would benefit from a moisture-resistant paint. Some rooms might need an extra hard-wearing paint which can be wiped down and cleaned such as hallways, landings or kid’s bedrooms. Finding the right paint isn’t just about which colour you pick. We have different types of paint designed for use in different rooms. By choosing the paint that is specially designed for the type of room you are painting, you will get the best end result.

What type of surface are you painting?

There are different types of paint for different surface materials. As well as a comprehensive selection of emulsion paints for walls and ceilings, we have a wide range of specialist paint including ones that are designed for wood furniture, brick walls, and tiles. Choosing the right paint for the right material will ensure a longer-lasting result and the best coverage.

What kind of look are you going for?

Maybe your home has quite a traditional look and would suit a subtle, matt effect paint. Or perhaps you have a more contemporary style that would look great with a satin or metallic finish paint. When selecting paint, think about what you want the final look to be, so that you can choose the correct finish as well as the right colour.

Office space with different paints on the wall

How much time do you have to complete your decorating project?

If you need to get your painting job done quickly, we have a wide range of quick-drying options that will help you get a whole room decorated in a few hours. We have quick dry wall paint, primers, and wood and metal paint to help you make the most of your time whatever you are painting.

What state is the surface in?

Some of our interior paints can be applied directly to the surface. Others may require a bit of preparation before you can begin painting. Perhaps you are painting a freshly plastered surface or previously untreated wood, or maybe you need to fill in some holes or sand down an uneven surface. We have paints and primers for all sorts of surfaces that will help you achieve a nice, even finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Works perfect if you stick to the instructions I’m writing a review on this as I sat and read the reviews a few times as was worried it wouldnt turn out as expected but it’s BRILLIANT! I used this for a feature wall in My living room and turned out great. I 1st put a quick layer of white on the wall as my wall before was dark brown. Then stirred the paint for around 15 minutes you really need to stir stir stir as the metallic sinks to the bottom. Then applied a thick layer for my 1st coat. Let it dry for around 3-4 hours them applied another thick coat in a cross cross fashion to add affect I used 1 and a half tubs and that’s it. It looks coppery and I love it. Defiantly recommend

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing effect!! I was nervous about getting this paint after reading some of the bad reviews on here but it worked out amazing! Used it to paint uplighters in my living room on a feature wall and it looks amazing. Make sure you stir the paint for a while (paitience is a virtue!) Painted two coats on top of what was originally there (Matt white emulsion). Used a mini roller to get a super smooth effect. Allowed overnight drying between coats. I am so happy and having big windows in my flat means the daylight really bounces off th uplighters and picks up the metallic effect!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous copper effect I had intended to try the gold effect paint on my feature wall, but it had sold out so I made the daring decision to go bold - copper. I am so glad I did my wall looks fabulous and glows with a copper light. OK - it ONLY works if you follow the instructions to the letter. You HAVE to stir it well. I mean at least ten full minutes or more of thorough stirring until the are no more brown streaks in the paint. This is a very thick paint so it is hard work and just as you think you've done it you'll see more streaks. The copper effect settles to the bottom of the tub and has to be carefully folded into the pain. I used a tablespoon and every now and then I would turn the tub around to give it a more even stir, make sure you scrape the inside of the tub to pull the brown paint in and fold again. If you do this properly the copper effect will be true. I actually painted over an old textured wall paper using a 4" soft synthetic brush. This cleaned up beautifully in water afterwards. Load the brush well, don't try to use every scrape of paint on the brush (as you might with an emulsion), its more like slathering than painting and don't worry too much about the excess dripping down the wall - if you try to brush away the drips at this stage you'll end up wiping off the copper surface. Once the first coat was almost dry (a couple of hours) I then stirred the paint carefully again and, using less paint on the brush, I smoothed away the previous drips. It worked beautifully and once dry the copper over the textured wall paper gave me a lovely beaten copper effect. You will easily go through a whole tub for just once feature wall - but its well worth it. I will be looking out for the gold to use in a different room now :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Really Impressed Was very sceptical as it had poor reviews - However, looks awesome. My advice is follow the directions to the letter and ensure that you stir the tub until there is no streaks

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Metallic Effect This product is very good at giving a metallic effect that is durable. I have used in a bar I have converted my garage into and it looks great against the Oak panels. To get the best out of this I would recommend the following: - Any surface is prepared with a primer (not emulsion) with a roller for even finish. - Then apply with a brush using about 2 to 3 coats depending on preference, this will allow the metallic effect of the copper to show through without going a solid brown colour. - When the surface is still wet you can then use a roller lightly on the surface to give an even finish and remove brush lines, or you can do what Andrew 2265 did with a wide brush. In fact you can try anything that you wish but the surface will have to still be wet. Using the method above will ensure the best out of the product as a roller puts too much on the surface and this gives a horrible dull brown colour. Light thin coats 2-3 times and watch as the copper comes to life.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic effect. Used it watered down on fresh plaster which I'd had rippled. Completed the job with another 2 coats using a brush because of the "wavy wall" and it looks amazing. The adjacent wall is mint green and I feel like I've had a designer in! Definitely recommended for a stunning effect. Great cover, I bought two tubs but still have one and a half left.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Love this paint. Great effect. We used this on a wall in our dining area. You must stir it well to get the best result. I used 2 tubs for the best cover and yes, you can see roller/ brush marks but I used this to my advantage to give a textured, interesting look which makes the shimmer stand out more.
