Many people know that the less furniture in the room – the easier to paint the room. The best variant is that your bedroom or living room is empty. If your room is not empty, you need to put your furniture to the middle of the living room or bedroom and put old sheets or clothing on the top. After your moved furniture you need to check your walls. Usually walls have dust, oils or dirt. If you do not see these spots it does not mean that walls have not them.

To determine the exact quantity of paint the easiest way is to use paint calculator on different websites. To use calculator you should know size (walls’ width and height) of your bedroom or living room. Also you should decide how many coats of paint you prefer. FYI we also recommend to prime walls before painting. The primer will protect walls from flashing or a glossy spots, which take place when paint is put right on spackling. So don’t forget to buy primer too.
3. Painting process
Before painting you need use tape for outlets, tumbler switch, door and window trims, baseboards and adjoining walls. Put old clothes, newspapers, or a roll of paper on the floor. When you are done with covering, you need at first to brush before rolling. Attentively use a well brush to paint near an inch and half out from the ceiling, different corners, and the baseboards. The roller could not reach these areas, that’s why you need use brush. Then use roller and use W pattern way. It means that your roller should repeat letter “W” and after that paint space that remained unpainted.
