Interior Wall Painting

Prepare the Room
The carpet and the furniture need to be protected from paint splatters. Place all the movable furniture in the middle of the room, and remember to cover everything, including the floor with plastic sheets. By shifting the furniture, you will get enough room to move around freely while painting. Fix the sheets tightly using masking tape.

Prepare the Walls
All curtains, wall hangings, electrical outlets, light fixtures, etc., should be removed from the wall surface. Those which cannot be removed should be covered up with plastic bags. Any holes or cracks should be repaired. Clean the wall to get rid of dirt and debris as they can prevent the paint from bonding well with the surface.
