Painting projects can be daunting, especially if you don’t know the right tools to get everything done. The best interior painting projects require attention to detail and focus on each part of the project.
The tools you use for interior painting matter. So, why not use the best ones?
Here at Ellison Painting, our professional painters know their way around the toolbox. To help you get the best materials for your project, we’ve compiled the ten best interior painting tools to help you get started.
You’ll need to choose paint for your interior painting project. There are a variety of options including different finishes, undertones, and shades to consider. We recommend Sherwin Williams interior paint products for their superior quality and longevity.
2. Drop Cloths
Drop cloths come in handy for protecting surfaces from spills and splatters of paint. They cover floors, furniture, and any surface you want to avoid spilling on.
3. Caulk Gun
Caulk may be needed to fill in areas around baseboards or in between trim on the walls. This creates a smooth, paintable surface for the paint to adhere to, and will unify the quality of your work. Having a caulk gun and tube handy will help this process along.
4. Painter’s Tape
Painter’s tape is needed to section off areas for painting, as well as cover areas that need to be handled more delicately, like with a brush instead of a roller. Painter’s tape can also be used to hide areas you want to leave unpainted.
5. Paint Roller and Paint Tray
A paint roller will help to expedite covering larger, single-color areas during your interior painting project.
6. Paint Brushes
Paint brushes are best for small areas that require attention to detail and a steady hand to cover. Areas like trim and molding may be better suited for a brush, as well as crevices and curves around cabinets.
Spackle is useful for filling in small holes in the wall before painting. The best interior painting services focus on surface preparation because applying paint to an imperfect surface will result in a less than stellar look overall.
Sandpaper or a sanding sponge is used to level surfaces that may not be smooth enough to apply a good paint coat.
Edgers are best suited for sharp corners and along the edges of trim in homes. They can be more effective than brushes and provide a precise coat of paint for areas that are difficult to reach by hand.
10. Multipurpose Paint Tool
Multipurpose paint tools may come in 5-in-1 or other all-in-one varieties. They have a flat edge and a sharp edge to be used for scraping, caulking, opening paint cans, and removing paint from rollers.
