Walls first then woodwork lastly
Ceiling walls then skirting and doors
you paint the walls first.
I would always suggest working your way down when painting as paint tend to splash and for that very reason i would always paint the ceiling, then the walls and finally the skirting boards.
There is no specific order to paint the room. Assuming you need two coats on walls and wood you can apply one to wall & one to wood and then do it again in 24hours.
You need to paint skirting board first,,
Hi ceiling and then walls first
I would always paint the walls first after preparing both for painting.
This way you don't run the risk of painting the walls and getting drips and splatter onto your skirting boards.
Work from highest point downward.
First coat on wall
Undercoat on timber surfaces
Second coat on wall
Top coat of satin on timber surfaces to regain sharp lines and finish
I would paint the wall first and do the skirting after
Hi, when your starting to paint a room preparation is the first step.
fill any uneven surfaces using a easy sanding filler like - tetron or easy fill. (Two part wood filler for any timber work)!!
there the best in my opinion.
The next step is to use decorating caulk for any corners, gaps around door frames, gape on skirting boards etc.
Once this is dry you can then sand down the filler and the rest of the walls.
Now you can start to apply your first coat of paint to the ceiling and walls, once the first coat is dry (usually 3/4 hours depending on room temperature)
You can then double check for any more filling that may need another fill!
Once this is complete you can then undercoat your woodwork.
Sand down the walls (spotting off any filler marks with a dab of colour) and woodwork again then apply your top coat to the walls once there dry finish off the woodwork.
Prepare ceiling and walls ie take out cracks and repair and rub down.
Emulsion ceiling then walls
Bare plaster, emulsion with thinned down emulsion for 1st coat and then apply filler if needed and rub down
painting walls first and later skirting
Always the walls 1st in my experience
First ceiling, then walls, then skirting. In this way, you will not mess the work down if its done, when doing for ex.last the ceiling.
I would paint skirting boards last
Personally I would paint the walls first but leave the finish coat and then undercoat the skirting and give it one coat of gloss or satin,then finish the wall and then final coat on skirting
All walls to be painted first, wood work last
Walls should be painted first to avoid drops of paint on the skirting boards. Also emulsion paint dry quicker so skirting boards can be painted few hours after the walls are done.
Ideally you would want to sand down then paint all the skirting boards , architraves etc first as u can wipe the wall paint from them as it is usually water based . It would be harder to wipe skirting paint I:e gloss from the walls as it is usually non water based paint , which means u can't just wipe it of the walls with a bit of water on a cloth . Hope this helps
Ceiling, walls, woodwork.
I do paint the walls first and then gloss on the skirting boards as it's more quicker!
i paint walls first then skirting
First coat to walls, undercoat woodwork, second coat to walls, top coat to woodwork.
If painting the whole room, start with the ceiling first, then the walls and then doors, windows and skirting. If a wall has minor surface imperfections such as lines between remaining emulsion paint and bare plaster that cannot be sanded down to a smooth edge, hang lining paper before repainting.
Fill walls and paintwork. Rub down. Paint ceiling then walls then paintwork.
Hi there, the ceiling would actually be the first to be painted. But if ceiling doesn't need done then there's not really a right or rong. I have been in the trade for many years and have seen skirting done first and walls done first. I would advise a home owner with no Experience to do the skirting first, so there is no worries about getting paint on The walls. It's much easier for a non painter to cut the wall into the skirting instead of cutting skirting into the wall. As the skirting is of smaller surface and requires a steadier hand.
