Common Painting Methods

You should follow several standard techniques to achieve a beautiful and long-lasting finish when painting.

  • Firstly, planning your painting strategy based on your client’s desired finished product and color preferences is crucial. Many paint manufacturers offer online tools to help visualize the area in real time.
  • Before painting, remove all fixtures and furniture from the commercial area, or cover them with a canvas tarp or plastic sheeting. Use painter’s tape to protect corners, bases, crown moldings, and window and door casings.
  • Mix the paint thoroughly to ensure a uniform hue.
  • When applying a paint coat, it’s best to work from the ceiling down and apply at least three coats on dark walls with a brighter tone, including a coat of primer.
  • Working on one side at a time is also recommended, starting with molding and borders.

Following these techniques can help ensure a flawless finish.
