If it’s your first time painting your walls and ceilings, we recommend looking over our ‘how to’ guides for the best painting tips to save you time and get you the best possible finish.
The prep work before commencing painting is an essential step in any project; with walls and ceilings, you may be faced with cracks and gaps in the plaster and cornices that need to be filled! The Product Finder has recommended our Mini Gap Filler and Caulking Gun to ensure you have a smooth, prepped surface to start painting.
Now you are ready to tape up your walls, pop down a drop sheet to protect your floors and start painting. The Product Finder has recommended our Heavy-Duty Non-Slip Canvas Drop Sheet that offers great protection for polished floors, tiles and other slippery areas.

The painting process for standard walls and ceilings involves a few easy-to-follow steps! Start by cutting in on all corners of the wall and ceiling, including the cornices and skirting boards; then you are ready to roll. When rolling, be sure that you aren’t standing too close or too far away; the span of your roller should meet your cutting in, which will help prevent you from getting paint everywhere.
Tip - never forget to do a second coat; depending on your chosen colour, you may even need a third or fourth coat! Remember to wrap your brush and roller in cling wrap or foil in-between coats to prevent them from drying out.
Finish up your walls and ceilings paint project by giving the roller and brush an excellent clean and store them back in their packaging, ready to go for your next project.
