What order do you paint the interior of a house in Adelaide?

The order which you paint your house in is up to you at the end of the day; but here is the most popular and most used order to paint the inter of a house in:

Interior painting ceiling

The ceiling should be first painted first off, since it is the area we have the least control over; especially when dealing with a high ceiling. Paint will undoubtedly fall to the floor and some may even leak onto the walls after the ceiling is completed; however, this shouldn’t be a major issue because the walls will be painted later. We recommend using ceiling specific paint, since it is thinner that normal paint ad tends to drip and splatter less.

Interior painting trims

One of the trickiest parts of this whole process is the trims; however since with this process you are painting the trims before the walls you don’t have to worry about the tiniest drip getting on the walls. The process is a lot easier now, since it’s not a big deal to have some paint get on the walls!

Interior painting cut-ins.

This is the part that requires the most attention to detail and patience. If you’re really considered about the cut-ins, get your hands on a painter’s tape; which is there to make the process easier for beginners. The type of brush and paint also affects the results. We recommend softer brushes for thinner paint and a thicker and stiffer brush for thicker paint.

Interior wall paint

Finally, you can paint the walls! The first and easiest step of painting the walls is to get the paint on the walls using a brush or a spray; however using a roller is the best and easiest choice.

If your choice is a roller here are some easy steps for you:

  • dip your roller in paint and make sure each side of it is evenly covered
  • apply the paint to the wall using a criss cross pattern
  • once done, repaint this layer again but with an up and down motion


What paint is good for interior walls in Adelaide?

The type of paint you use on your walls depends solely on your liking. Every different type of paint has its own usage and purpose.

Here are five of the most popular types of paint:

Emulsion Paint

Emulsion paints are water-based and nearly odorless, making them the most popular choice for interior wall paint. The paint dries quickly and has very few volatile organic compounds (VOCs). Furthermore, because emulsion paints are resilient and washable, stains can be simply removed with a damp cloth or a mild soap solution.

It comes in a range of finishes, including gloss, silk, and matte, and is an excellent choice for painting your home walls.

Textured Paint

Textured paint has a high aesthetic value and is ideal for adding a subtle touch to the walls. For interior wall painting designs, it can be utilised to create unique effects on the wall, such as marble, stucco, sand swirl, and popcorn texture. This paint is very ideal for covering minor defects and imperfections on walls. Textured paint is very hard to work with and requires a lot of experience; only professionals painters can do a good job with this paint.

Enamel Paint

Enamel paint is commonly used to cover metallic and wooden surfaces. The finish is firm, glossy, and opaque. Enamel paint is a great choice since it is resistant to water, stain and heat. Enamel paint can also be used on bathroom doors which are exposed to a lot of moisture.

Metallic Paint

Like the name says, metallic paint contains small bits of metal such as steel, copper, aluminium or bronze. Metallic paint can work as a great wallpaper, and make the room look very luxurious and lavish. This paint also has the ability to give a renewed look to wooden and metal surfaces.

Distemper Paint

Distemper paint goes back as long as ancient Egypt, making it available in many different varieties. Applying distemper paint before normal paint on a wall can cause the paint to last longer. Fun fact, distemper paint doesn’t crack or fade at the presence of sunlight at all!

interior paint cost can be anywhere from as low as $30 up to $100 and more!
