How to paint a ceiling is not as difficult as it seems. Although you have to paint with your head facing up in a long time, but it is not a tiring activity if you know the techniques well. Ceilings are more difficult to paint than walls, but prudent care and a discerning touch will make this project well worth your while. Here are some tips to help you.
Firstly, you need to know the condition of your ceiling surface. If it is textured or a drywall ceiling, consider calling a contractor for best result.
A professional contractor will help you with those kinds of surface. It’s better than doing it yourself. But if the surface is not that bad, then you can do it yourself.
If you’re sure enough to do it yourself, now you start prepping your ceiling. You need to have stocks of supplies. You will need the paint, a roller and extension pole, a paint tray, a brush, a ladder, and so on. Remember to decide the color first before you buy the paint.
Choose the high quality paint for best result. It is important to move all the furniture to avoid them from dripping paint. But if it is impossible to move all of them, you can use plastic to drape all of the furniture.
If you have prepared your room, how to paint a ceiling is by priming it. Priming ensures that you'll only have to give the ceiling one coat of paint. A primer will help stick to the ceiling and absorb the coat of paint, like a sponge absorbing water.
For the corner, it better for you to use a paint tape or you can use brush to cut in along the edges of the ceiling, where trim meet the wall.
If you have a vaulted ceiling, then you are lucky because you can treat it like a wall.
Start in a corner of the ceiling and work your way down to the wall in straight-lines, with each consecutive line slightly overlapping the one before. Be smooth and consistent with all of your strokes. Do your best on how to paint a ceiling.
