Tips for painting the bathroom ceiling

We are going to paint our small bathroom ceiling (approx. 3m squared)

We will use this paint


What other things will we need / tips to make sure this job goes smoothly?

Re: Tips for painting the bathroom ceiling

Hi @wendalls,


When providing advice, it would be helpful for our members to know what condition the current ceiling paint is in. Perhaps you might like to share some images with us? 


You should find these step-by-step guides useful:






Preparation is the key to a fantastic looking painted surface. A painted finish can only ever be as good as the surface it is going over, so spend the time sorting out the imperfections first. Any rough sections need to be sanded, and any flaking paint needs to be scraped back and filled.


I look forward to hearing more about the current ceiling and providing some specific assistance for your situation.
