How to Paint a Bedroom

How to Paint a Bedroom

Painting your bedroom is a rewarding way to upgrade your space. 

It’s pretty painless, relatively inexpensive, and easy to fix most mistakes.

Here’s how to paint your bedroom step-by-step:

  1. Plan your project. Consider things like how many colors you plan to use, the theme of the room, and whether or not you’ll paint the ceiling. 
  2. Next, choose your bedroom paint colors. Once you have your idea, find the right shades and hues you want to test on your walls.
  3. Gather your tools and materials. This includes paintbrushes, painter’s tape, extension poles, trays, rags, and putty knives. 
  4. Decide how much paint you’ll need. A general rule of thumb is one gallon per 400 square feet.

Prep the Room

  1. Then it’s time to prep the room and the walls. To avoid ruining furniture and carpet, it’s a good idea to cover them with plastic or paper for protection. At this point, you’ll also want to tape off anything you wont be painting, like the edges of the floor, ceiling, and windows. 
  2. Once the room is ready, you’ll want to stir your paint. As paint sits, the ingredients separate. So, mixing is a crucial step before you start painting. 

Paint the Walls

  1. Now that you’re set, you’ll need the final plan for painting the bedroom. If you’re painting the ceiling, start there. It’s best to paint from the top down. Tackle one wall at a time using the brush to get corners and edges. Once the wall is dry to the touch, it’s ready for a second coat.
  2. When you’ve finished painting the room, ventilate the room so it dries evenly. And a warm room will dry quicker than a cold one. 
  3. If you’re happy with the color and are completely done painting, it’s time to clean up the bedroom. Remove all the painters tape, clean the brushes, and make any necessary final touches to the walls.

And finally, you’re done!

Make sure to give yourself plenty of time for this project. Planning, prepping, painting, and cleaning up all require designated time to do a great job painting your bedroom. 

What Type of Paint to Use in Your Bedroom

Different rooms in your house will have various micro-climates. And thus, will require using different types of paint for the interior of each room. 

But the best type of paint to use in your bedroom is acrylic latex interior wall paint. 

Bedrooms tend to be very forgiving spaces so that you can use any sheen for the walls, from matte to satin or eggshell.
