As a professional painter and decorator, I often get asked what is the correct order of painting and decorating in 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 using dust free sanding system and are ready for decorating.
In all examples I have used traditional undercoat and gloss. Other finishes are probably now more contemporary, for instance in all domestic properties I use Crown Fastflow paint, but the principal remains the same.
