How To Paint Your Ceiling More Effectively

by Kelly Welch

If you want to paint inside your home, you should always consider painting your ceiling. Some people want to paint their walls just to change the color, but think that painting the ceiling is not that important. This article explains not only why painting your ceiling is very important, but also how to make the project a little more manageable.

Why You Should Paint the Ceiling

Most residential designs have a white ceiling. Because of this, homeowners often think that repainting their ceiling the exact same color that it already is will be a waste of time and money. In reality, you probably won't be able to tell how much your ceiling paint has faded and tinted over the years. If you have new ceiling paint and apply a tiny sample, you will see a stark difference between the old white paint and the bright new white paint. A new white paint is also going to make your new wall paint look more dynamic and brighter.

Making the Job a Little Easier

Painting ceilings is harder than painting walls. The fact that you are painting directly above your head makes the task complicated and painful (for your neck and back). Your neck can get quite sore from repeatedly looking up while painting. To make the job less painful, you can use a few simple techniques.

First of all, you don't need to be up on the ladder as close to the ceiling is possible to paint it. You'll get much better results if you simply use a paint roller attached to a telescoping painters pole. This enables you to keep your feet on the floor, which reduces the stress on your feet, back, and neck.

You don't need to paint directly above your head. With your pole at an angle and in front of you, you can see what you are painting without straining your neck up, and without having paint drip into your hair. It is also important that you paint your ceiling before you paint your walls. This is especially true if your walls are going to be a darker color than white. This way, you don't need to tape off when painting your ceiling. If a little bit of ceiling paint gets onto the walls, it will be covered up when you paint the walls, so there's nothing to worry about.

As you can see, painting your ceiling is important, and the job isn't that difficult if you follow these steps.
