Interior painting is a wonderful way to add color to any room. Depending on the
shade you select, you can brighten, clean up or cozy up your space. You can
make small rooms appear larger or large rooms seem more inviting. Paint is
inexpensive, easy to apply and can serve as a beautiful backdrop to your space
– provided that it is done right. Fortunately, there are some easy steps to follow
that will ensure that your interior painted space will look great and last for many
Selecting the Right Paint for Your Interior Painting Job

The first step is to find the best paint for the room you want to work with. If you
are painting an office or dining room, your choices will be very different than if
you are looking at dressing up a kitchen, bathroom or kids’ area. For rooms that
do not suffer from as much wear or tear, you can have your pick of a plethora of
variety and shades.

If you are working with a room that sees frequent use, you will be better off if you
choose a paint that is washable. In areas that see plenty of moisture, like your
bathroom, a paint that will resist mildew is a good idea. If you have any
questions about the best interior painting for your project, you can check the
label on the paint can or ask a professional at the home improvement store that
you are shopping at.

Preparing Your Walls for Interior Painting

A clean surface will take paint much better, so give yours walls a good scrub
before beginning to paint. There are commercial cleaners available for walls and
ceilings that do not require rinsing. If you don’t want to use one of the specialty
products, you can give your walls a cleaning with good old-fashioned soap and

Just make sure that you rinse well and allow the surface to dry completely before
applying paint. If you have stains on your walls or ceiling that you cannot get out,
use a primer that is compatible with the paint that you will be using. Fill holes and
nicks in the wall using a spackling compound. Large holes may require patching,
and you can buy kits for this at your home improvement store.
Splash on the Color

Once preparation is complete, you are finally ready to begin adding your hue of
choice to your room. Interior painting is generally done with roller brushes to the
larger surfaces, and bristle brushes for the edges and trim. The order in which you do
these two tasks is mostly a matter of personal preference. Depending on the color
you are covering up, you may need a coat or three before your interior painting
project is complete. The best method to cover a room is to start with the ceiling, work
down to the walls, and finish off with the trim. After your interior painting project is
complete, take time to enjoy the fruit of your labor. Congratulations! You have just
transformed a room with minimum cost and maximum effect.
