When preparing to paint a room, furniture or anything else it is important that you use the right primer. It covers the surface with a thick layer, allowing paint to go on more smoothly. This results in a professional finish with fewer coats of paint required to get the look you want. Primer is easy to apply, and can often be sprayed or rolled on in the same manner as your paint. When choosing a primer, you should be sure to get the right type for the job. There are options for both indoor and outdoor spaces.
Most paint jobs are best done with a coat of primer first. You should also patch any holes and other rough spots on your walls before getting started. Follow this up with the right type of primer. You may also find primer paint, which has the primer already mixed into the colour for an all-in-one solution.
