3. Brushes. Investing in good quality brushes will only improve the quality of your painting.
4. Edges. Paint corners, edges and around skirting boards before moving onto the main walls.
5. Roll with it! Have a range of roller sizes at your disposal.
6. Watch those drips! Always cover up furniture and carpets to avoid the nightmare of getting stains everywhere! Watch out for how much you dip your brush into the paint tin - dip the bottom half of the brush into the tin and tap on it's edge in case there's any sneaky paint drips.
7. Technique. Painting in letters is said to a great painting technique for large areas. For example, paint a 'W' with a roller and fill it in with an 'M' for even coverage.
8. Window worries. If you get any paint on your windows, don’t panic! Wait for it dry and use a paint scraper to remove it.
9. Keep brushes fresh. Covering brushes with a damp cloth once you've finished can help prevent them from drying out.
10. Keep it clean. Cleaning as you go will save you time, especially as it's the worst bit!
