Tools for painting

Important tools you need for painting and decorating you room

  • Tape Measure
    • First thing you can start with is to measure walls  so you’ll know how much paint you need to buy. Typically, 5 LITRES of paint covers 40 square meters.


  • Primer
  • Make sure you use a primer with a stain blocker.

  • Stirrer
  • Usually comes free with any paint purchase. Is very important to always stir paint before applying.

  • Pouring spout
  • Attach the spout to a 5 litres of paint and pour without any mess.


  • Five-gallon bucket

  • For big jobs that require many litres of paint. Keep the color consistent by mixing all the cans in a large bucket.


  • Screen.
  • Make sure you place this inside the bucket to wipe any excess paint off the roller.


  • Roller tray.
  • Use a metal or sturdy plastic tray for smaller projects.


  • Tray liner.
  • Save clean-up time by using a disposable paint-tray liner.


  • Roller cover.
  • A 3/8-inch nap provides the best finish for most interior walls.


  • Angled sash paintbrush.
  • In order to  paint trim, use a two-inch angled brush, which will give you more control.


  • Blue painter’s tape.
  • This is an essential tool for protecting trim or walls that you don’t want to get paint on.


  • Drop cloths
  • Protect furniture with plastic coverings. Place a reusable canvas drop cloth, which is less slippery than plastic, on the floor.

  • Easy filler
  • Quicker than spackling: Put easy filler into small holes in the wall.


  • Sanding paper
  • You will need P120 sandpaper in order to sand the surfaces you applied easy filler powder. Make sure the filler is dry before starting sanding


  • Screwdriver
  • Use to loosen any ceiling plates of lighting fixtures and remove switch plates before painting.


  • Sponge
  • Before priming, wash the walls with a few drops of dishwashing detergent mixed with water.
