How to paint a ceiling

Once you have chosen your colour, product and accessories it's time to paint.


Step 1: Prep

  • Move furniture and items out of the way to avoid paint splatter, if you can’t move them, cover them up with a drop sheet.
  • Tape drop sheet to the skirting and make sure to overlap the drop sheets for full protection.
  • Apply tape along the upper edges of the walls to prevent paint splatter, and ensure to tape off any fixtures such as light switches for added protection and if possible, remove light fixtures when safe to do so.
  • Remove any dust or grime from the ceiling and repair any cracks or holes with caulk or filler. Don’t forget to wipe down any dust after sanding.
  • Treat any mould with Flood Mould Action or bleach and overcoat any remaining stains with Taubmans® Advanced Adhesion & Mould Blocker. Refer to back of pack for use.
  • If water stains or leakage is present, the source needs to be rectified. Overcoat the remaining water stains with Taubmans® Tough Stain Blocker. Refer to back of pack for use.

Step 2: Paint

  • Using the paint brush in your kit, cut in the edges, cornices and around fixtures.
  • Using the roller in your kit, apply the paint in 1m grids ensuring to keep a wet edge. Evenly coat the entire ceiling.
  • Once dry, repeat the cutting in process prior to rolling the second coat.


There you have it; your refreshed ceiling is ready to impress both you and your guests.
