Professional painters do interior painting much like you would yourself. Trim is taped off, ceilings are sprayed, and walls are rolled. Do you just spray everything? Well, Chrissy Idaho Painter and Journeyman John from Paint Life TV don’t. Here’s why.
First is the decision on what’s sprayed and what’s rolled. Trim and ceilings are usually sprayed because it’s faster.
Textured ceilings are rolled. With that decided, the drop cloths and plastic are laid down before the taping begins. Furniture is covered, lighting is removed and the supports taped, and switch plates are removed and taped.
Trim is usually sprayed first, followed by ceilings and walls last. It takes less time to spray like this than it does for an army of painters to tape off everything. Spraying two coats on trim usually takes one day.
This video was about spraying trim. Painting everything the same color, painting trims differently from walls, and painting or not painting ceilings are apparently different videos and so weren’t included in this one.
However, there are options for painting trim, such as taping the walls and brushing the trim or spraying it. Interior painting is less difficult than most people expect.
