Tips To Paint The Wall

Paint the wall and looking for tips and ideas? With our wide range we are happy to help you gain inspiration, although of course we can also explain how you can best approach this.

Roughly you can choose from two different techniques for the wall: painting or spraying. Painting the wall is not difficult, you use a roller for the large parts and a brush for the edges. Alternatively, you can spray the wall, for which you naturally need a paint sprayer. It provides a nice smooth result, but also requires some experience and skill with the device.

Ideas for painting the wall

Do you decide to paint the wall and are you looking for useful tips? First look carefully at the surface. Is there stucco work? Then use a different roller and brushes than when you want to paint on drywall.

In any case, it is important to tap the floor and turn off the power, if there are sockets on the wall that you want to paint. Depending on the surface you choose, it is important to degrease it (stucco wall) or first focus on the existing kit (drywall). In both cases you can sand the wall with some sandpaper around a sanding block, so that you make the right preparations.

Tip: Has stucco been recently applied to the wall and has it not been painted over? Place the wall in the primer to prevent the sucking effect. It is the best tip to prepare the surface for painting on, without the paint being sucked into the wall and you cannot get a tight result.

There are of course all kinds of ideas for painting the wall, for example in a specific color or with a beautiful pattern. Let your creativity run free, for example by using two colors or by painting a large surface on the wall that attracts attention. It can be a nice frame for a painting or other beautiful object in your interior.

Paint exterior wall

Painting with exterior wall paint ensures a beautiful and sleek result. You work on a fresh and well-kept appearance of your house, so that you immediately receive appreciation for your work. And just as important, by painting the outside wall you protect the material against moisture breakdown.

Paint the outside wall step by step

Do you want to paint the outside wall and are you curious how you approach that? We list the important steps for you:

Treating the wall : removing moss and algae Are there any algae or moss on the wall? It is important to remove them first, before you start painting with the outside wall.

Cleaning the outside wall Then

clean the rest of the wall. You can use a high-pressure cleaner for this. You remove dust with a soft brush so that the wall is clean for painting.

Checking and repairing joints

Check the joints of the wall and repair where necessary. You can scratch out a little crumbly joint, but with more damage you first have to re-joint.

Covering the floor

With this step you are almost ready to paint the outside wall. Cover the top with construction film, so that the brush does not end up in the soil when you start painting the bottom layer.

Please note: is there untreated brick? Pre-iron it with a primer for outdoor use. Allow the primer to dry for 12 hours so that you can paint well afterwards.

Apply primer

You can get started with the paint on the outside wall. Start with the primer or primer, which is best applied with a block twitter or a fur roller.

Paint wall by surface You can paint on the outside wall by doing it neatly by surface. Work in areas of approximately one square meter. Paint the edges of the wall and the connections with the frames. Use a brush for this, so that you can then color the ‘surfaces’ with a roller.

Tip: Work from top to bottom and then from left to right. Do that ‘wet in wet’, by letting the surfaces overlap well.

Dots on the ‘i’ with a brush

Are there any nasty dots and corners left? Use a brush to put the dots on the ‘i’. Tip: prevent the wall from getting dirty quickly? Use a dark color for the bottom 30 cm of the wall. Mud and earth are then less visible, for example due to splashing during a heavy rain shower.
