Painting Tips: Painting Order

Painting Order

A room's surfaces should be painted in the following order (this includes priming of the surface if needed):

  1. Ceiling
  2. Walls
  3. Doors
  4. Trim, molding, windows, doors, cabinets, etc.
  5. Floors (if painting)

In general: paint the room from top to bottom. This helps the project go much more quickly and smoothly, and makes cleaning up accidental drips easier as well.
