When preparing for apartment painting be sure to contemplate brands, know that professional painters prefer Benjamin Moore paints, as does Wirecutter, The New York Times product review website. That paint does not drip much, and it covers better than others. White and colors of off-white are generally more affordable. If you are in a rush, steer clear of vivid colors such as red; they could take two to three coats to cover a surface correctly.
You want to select the ideal kind of paint — which means water-based latex flat paint for ceilings, horizontal or”eggshell” finish for walls, and eggshell or semi-gloss for sills and doors. Do not be afraid to overbuy, because most stores enable returns of whatever unopened, save for custom-mixed colors. Also, don’t buy cheap brushes. Nothing’s more annoying than trying to move fast but needing to stop constantly and select bristles from your paint.
In case you have mold or water stains on your surfaces, purchase quick-drying alkyd or oil-based stain-killing primer, which can double as a primer for patched cracks and holes (and in this case, a cheap disposable brush or disposable mini-roller and manage is fine). If you have no stains, then purchase a water-based primer to seal any repairs or stains once they dry.
