Have you always wanted your guests’ jaws to drop when they walk into your home? If so, you may want to consider an interior painting trick that will impress: ceiling painting.
At Benchmark Painting & Carpentry, our professional painters and team pride themselves in offering a unique painting service that can transform your ceilings into something spectacular. Whether you want to brighten your dingy ceiling to a pristine and clean white or add a bright yellow pop of color, a painted ceiling can add the ‘wow’ factor you’ve been waiting for. Here are a few great steps if you’re beginning ceiling home painting projects.
Prep the Room
Remove all furniture, put down a drop cloth to protect the floor, and use blue painter’s tape in the areas where the walls and ceiling meet. You won’t regret this prep work, as painting your ceiling can be a messy job.
Adding a fresh coat of primer to the ceiling will help to provide a stain barrier, and will also ensure that you won’t be painting for hours; one or two coats will suffice with a primer.
Paint the Edge
While standing on a ladder, use a paintbrush to paint a line along the edge of the ceiling, between two to three inches in thickness.
Paint the Ceiling
When the line is still wet, paint the ceiling with a roller, being sure to coat the ceiling evenly. This may get a bit messy, since you will be painting above your head. Once the paint has dried, you will be able to see if you need to add one more coat of edging and painting.
