The Order of Painting and Decorating.

As a professional painter and decorator, I often get asked in what order do you decorate a room. Below is a list of order of works for different finishes.

These presume that all previous wallpaper is stripped and all surfaces prepared ready for decorating.

In all examples I have used traditional undercoat and gloss. Other finishes are probably now more contemporary, but the principal remains the same.

Straight Emulsion

  1. 2 coats of emulsion to ceilings.
  2. 2coats of emulsion to walls.
  3. Undercoat woodwork.
  4. Gloss woodwork.
