Any given painting project you take on in your home is likely to be a bit on the messy side – it’s part of interior painting and this is somewhat well understood.
However, you should know that there are things that you can do to reduce the mess that is involved in painting — and this is even the case when you are looking to paint your bedroom ceiling.
When you make the time to learn about these things, you will find that although you still do make a bit of a mess while painting (in painting this can really not be avoided) it will be a bit reduced — and that’s a good thing, certainly.
Let’s have a look at some tips for bedroom ceiling painting with less mess.
Though it seems like it would be pretty intuitive that you shouldn’t start a painting project without cleaning, it nevertheless is something that people will sometimes do and it is a bit of a mistake.
By cleaning your ceiling you will find that you will be removing the dust and grime that would make for a rather unpleasant painting project — and you will ensure that these do not find their way into the paint or primer that you apply to the ceiling.
It’s really just a matter of making sure that you thoroughly clean the ceiling and then allow time for your cleaned ceiling to properly dry.
An important part of the painting process that is going to reduce the mess that you have while you are painting is to make sure that the project is well planned..
The reason that this is going to help you get your project done with less mess is that when you are planning the project, you are going to know exactly the kind of equipment of paint and primer you are going to be using, so there is no surprise there.
You’re also going to know how long you should in theory be waiting for your paint and primer and surfaces to dry (more on this in a bit) so you won’t accidentally try to paint over a moist surface.
Moreover, you will know exactly how much area needs to be painted, and that means that you are going to be better prepared for protecting the floor and other things that need protection.
There are few things that are going to be as hurtful toward your painting project in terms of getting things messy as things getting in the way — furniture, to be specific.
You can just imagine how difficult it would be for you to be painting your ceiling, only for you to perhaps stumble into a bit of furniture that is sitting there in the way.
If you can remove the furniture, you will have an easier time getting around the room with your ladder — certainly the best way to reach your ceiling.
If on the other hand there is furniture that just can’t leave the room, you should move that furniture so that it’s all together and then perhaps periodically move it as necessary to reach other parts of the ceiling — and of course, you will have to cover it with a tarp or drop cloth so the paint doesn’t get on it.
Lastly, as mentioned above, it’s key that you are going to allow surfaces in your bedroom that you have painted (your ceiling, that is) to fully dry before you move on with the painting project.
When you have applied the primer coat to the ceiling, for example, you may be tempted to want to apply the first coat of paint but you should not — the primer would largely come off and a big mess would be made.
By making time for surfaces to dry, you’re going to find that your ceiling is going to look a lot better.
