Proper Sequence for A Painting Project

  • Planning the proper order for painting the entire room.
  • Starting with the ceiling first and going down to the walls and woodwork is always the best plan. The floor should be left for last.
  • Cutting in around the edges starting from the corner of the room where the wall meets the ceiling using a 2-inch or 2.5-inch brush.
  • Rolling the roller slowly onto the paint in a tray and applying it evenly onto the ceiling.
  • Using 3- to 4-inch brushes for painting large surfaces on the walls and doors.
  • Using 1- to 2-inch brushes for painting around the more detailed areas such as the windows and molding.
  • Making sure that the walls are completely dry before applying painter’s tape around trim and moldings so it can be painted.
  • Painting the inside sash on double-hung windows first before moving on to the frame and then on to the outside sash and the external frame.
  • Making sure that all the hardware on paneled doors are properly covered with masking tape.
  • Starting from a corner of the floor that diagonally lies opposite to the room’s exit.

Following a proper sequence is necessary for getting any work done correctly and professionally. It is the key to a fresh and clean-looking home.
