It is important to ensure that you have all the right equipment available:

  • Paint in the colour you have chosen
  • Roller and tray
  • Paint brushes in a variety of sizes
  • Masking tape
  • Plastic cloth or old sheet
  • Step ladder
  • Comfortable old clothing

You want to prepare your area carefully by putting masking tape around the light switches, sockets and door frames in your room before you cover any of your furniture that will remain in place with your plastic cloth or old sheet. You may also want to lay a sheet or cloth across the floor of the area that you are painting.

Dusting down your walls with a cloth will help prevent any dirt and dust from sticking your roller or brushes as you apply the new colour. Now is also the time to remove any picture hangings and fill in any holes that you have in your plaster.

Now you can get on with the task of painting. Make sure that you give the walls at least two coats of paint to make the most of the colour that you have chosen
