Move out furniture (or cover it). If you will have enough room to paint with the furniture still in the room, it may be a better choice to cover it up rather than take it out and have to bring it back into a freshly painted room and risk scratching or nicking anyfresh paint. Tarps do a great job of covering furniture.
Open a window. Fresh air is important while painting. Some paints and primers can have strong odors, so opening a window will bring clean air into the room for healthier breathing.
Remove curtains and drapes (and blinds, if necessary).
Cover light fixtures or remove them.
Remove hardware and electrical outlet covers.
Cover floors with tarps and make sure to tape them down to prevent them from moving around while you work in the room.
Prepare your tools and supplies and keep them strategically placed, such as in the center of the room.
Prepare for cleanup before you start painting.
Note: keep in mind if we need to move furniture and stuff (price increase a little more)
The condition of your walls, their surface and what kind of painting you will be doing will all influence the ways in which you need to prepare the walls for painting. In general, the following steps need to be taken for all painting projects:
Caulk and patch any holes or imperfections as needed
Sand the walls or use an abrasive cleaner for surfaces that are glossy or nonporous
Wash the walls. You know best whether your walls need a washing. It's a good idea to at least wipe down the walls with a damp cloth in order to remove dust or other dirt. It will make the paint look better and even make the application easier.
Place blue painter's tape around moldings and other areas such as doors and windows
Prime walls. Primers are good for covering up pre-existing wall problems such as discolorations, blocking out uneven surfaces and even help with blocking out odors.
