Interior painting advice


DIY can be an extremely rewarding, yet equally frustrating task if you don't have the correct equipment or if you have picked up bad habits along the way. When it comes to painting and decorating, at Homebase, we know a thing or two about how to get the job done effectively and efficiently. To get you started, check out our decorating equipment buying guide so that you are fully equipped to tackle any task at hand.

We also have several 'how to' guides that will walk you through step by step jobs such as painting interior walls and ceilings, repairing walls and everybody's favourite putting up a shelf. By following our simple DIY guides, you will get immense job satisfaction and pride whilst on the job.

An area that can even catch the experts out is 'how much paint do I need to complete that room or wall?'. To help you answer this question accurately, we've created a useful paint calculator that will work out, given the dimensions you input, exactly how much paint you need to purchase so that you are no longer caught out having too much or too little.
