Expert Insights for Painting Your Dining Room Ceiling in St. Louis, MO

When you’re looking to get your dining room ceiling to look nice, it’s entirely possible that you won’t even think to look up at the ceiling and see how that is doing.

However, what you should know is that your ceiling is just another wall in the room and that it too needs to be periodically painted in order to stay nice looking — and this is something that happens every several years or so, give or take.

Let’s have a look at some expert insights for painting your dining room ceiling that will get it to look splendid.

1. Use A Ladder

One thing that you’re going to want to do when you are painting your ceiling is to ascertain how you are going to get up to the ceiling.

There are a number of ways that you’re going to be able to reach up to your ceiling, including the ladder, scaffolding systems, and extending the reach of your brush and paint roller with extending poles.

Among these, the most safe of them that is also the most simple and practical is the ladder — a scaffolding system is highly impractical and hard to move around and a telescoping arm may be easy to hold but can be complicated to use until you get used to it.

It’s quite beneficial to have someone helping you to stabilize the ladder but so long as you have the ladder on firm flooring and don’t go too high up on the ladder, you will be quite okay.

2. Cover The Floor

Though you may of course make use of paint that is less likely to drip down to the floor, this doesn’t mean that you should entirely avoid floor coverings.

Any paint that you apply to your ceiling is going to drip down a little bit (even if it is only a very small amount) and that small amount of paint is going to stain your floor quite a lot and it’s rather difficult to remove these sorts of stains from the floor.

The best thing to do is to fully cover the floor with a good drop cloth that will ensure that your floor will stay covered during the painting process.

3. Plan Out The Painting Project

You are surely aware of the fact that a painting project is going to take you quite a while to take on, but when you don’t make the time to plan out the project well at all you will come to realize that the project will take you significantly longer.

The best way that you can plan out a painting project is to start out by measuring the ceiling that is going to be painted and then based on that determining how much paint and primer you are going to need.

By measuring the ceiling you will also be able to figure out how long you are going to need in order to paint your ceiling including the time that you are going to need to allow for the surface to fully dry.

This is particularly important as you won’t want to have the paint be still wet while you are getting ready to apply the second coat of paint.

4. White Is Not The Only Color

Lastly, remember that you have choices that are not white.

Just because you will see a lot of people painting their ceilings white, it does not necessarily mean that you have to do the same.

Indeed, there are many colors that you are going to be able to use and it’s just a matter of which color is most relatable for you.
