Before we begin to guide you on how to prepare a room for painting, you must first know what tools you will need.

The tools that are required to properly prepare a room are:

  • Duct Tape
  • Cloth
  • Rags
  • Sanding Sponge
  • Washing Sponge
  • A bucket of water with soap

Okay now, let’s begin!

The first thing that needs to be done is for you to cover all of your furniture with cloth so that in that form nothing can get over your fine upholstery. If you feel more comfortable with removing the furniture from the room you are painting that works too.

Once the covering of furniture has been done, you can proceed to washing the walls. Remember to rub gently as you don’t want to scratch the surface. Dry off the walls with the rags you purchased.

After that has been said and done, sand the walls to achieve a smooth and even surface for painting. Lastly, you can’t forget to prime for maximum adhesion.

Finally, proceed to painting the room in the color desired- use duct tapes to cover any borders or baseboards that you want to protect.
