Before painting the ceiling latex paint, you should familiarize yourself with some nuances.In fact there are only four rules that will help you cope with the painting of the ceiling.
Materials and tools
first thing that you need to solve the problem - it is a choice of the paint itself.In large economic and DIY stores, you can find more than ten kinds of colors, so it is often difficult to make a choice.What you should pay attention to?
Firstly, the color of the paint.As paradoxical as it may sound, but the "white" paint may have a few shades until pale ivory.But if you really interested in dazzling white color, choose a paint called "super white".

Secondly, on the volume of the container with paint.To the whole ceiling was painted in one color, buy the paint in such a way that its volume enough for two layers, plus a small amount of the residu
Now let's talk about the instrument.For optimum performance, you will need to roll (with pile of medium length) - it should be wide enough to accelerate the work, but do not be cumbersome, so as not to create unnecessary difficulties to you.
to choose the best roller telescopic handle, otherwise you have something up, trying to reach the ceiling (you still smeared in paint, which will bounce with lint roller down).
Also you will need a paint tray.In it you will pour it, and then dipping to roll slightly pressing it by rolling on a flat surface of the tray.
Application putty spatula
ceiling, if you decide to paint it, must be absolutely smooth, ie not to have cracks, pits or hills.Unfortunately, if the ceiling is created or reinforced concrete floor slabs is a monolith of the same concrete, then it does not possess evenness.In this case, you can go two ways:
- putty entire ceiling of the room;
- make false ceiling plasterboard (it will also have to then putty, but the layer of filler will be less than in the first case).
Finishing putty ceiling
If the ceiling previously painted with latex paint, and its surface is quite smooth, just clean it with a vacuum cleaner to remove unwanted dust.
primer for the ceiling
Also, what was listed above, you will also need a primer.Its main task - to improve the adhesion of paint particles from the painted surface.So before you start applying the first coat of paint, be sure to cover the entire ceiling with a coat, as water-based paint to paint the ceiling without this preliminary procedure is not recommended.
Primer ceiling and baseboards
Pay special attention to corners and places staining abutting the ceiling moldings.Himself skirting primer coat is not necessary.
Paint the ceiling
So, the first layer of paint for many masters recommend slightly dilute (10 parts paint to add one part water).And it should be applied in one direction (e.g., perpendicular to the window).Brush paint the baseboard and places around him, as well as the corners of the room.
After the first layer of paint is completely dry, carefully inspect the ceiling.If somewhere found the missing place, tint them, and then wait for them to dry completely.
procedure for painting the ceiling
Apply a second layer of paint must not dilute it.However, the roller must now move in the direction perpendicular to the imposition of the first layer - so you get a uniformly colored surface.
After roll pass the ceiling on the second round, do not forget to brush to paint over the places to which the roller is not reached.
