Frequently Asked Questions

How do I prepare my walls before painting them?

Prepping your walls for painting can depend on their current condition. If you have holes or scratches in your walls, these will need to be filled before you start painting. Watch this short video to learn how to prepare walls for painting.

If the walls you're preparing to paint are already smooth, they'll just need to be cleaned before painting. To do this, wipe your walls with a dry cloth to remove the dust and then wash with warm water and gentle detergent. Your walls should be completely dry before you begin painting.

How to paint walls and ceilings?

We have a blog where you can learn how to paint walls and ceilings. Don't forget to pick up emulsion paint and any painting and decorating tools before you begin.

What is emulsion paint?

Emulsion paint is a water-based paint often used to decorate walls and ceilings. It is suitable for a range of rooms and is available in a variety of colours and finishes. Emulsion paint is easy to apply and usually dries within three hours.

Can I paint a plasterboard ceiling?

Yes, you can paint a plasterboard ceiling. Just like any other surface you should ensure that the ceiling is smooth and clean before you begin to paint. Bear in mind that, due to the absorbent nature of plasterboard, you may need to add more coats of ceiling paint to get a smooth finish.

Should I paint the ceiling or the walls first?

Once you have prepared your ceiling and walls for painting, including cleaning, repairing and smoothing, you should paint the ceiling first.

Painting the ceiling first should help to prevent paint drips on walls and reduce the need for any touch-ups.
