I want to paint the interior of my house please help!?





My house is a year old and all the rooms are the same color. I am ready to change up the colors. My house was painted in a flat paint. I want to go with eggshell. Do I need to kilz, prime, or sand the walls first or just paint straight over the old paint?

    if it is going with a lighter color i would say yes to prime. you could test it by going over just a patch of a foot square and see if it covers if not then you will know to get the primer try inside your closet or somewhere that will have light but will not show

    preperation is 1 fill all holes sand whole room. eggshell is fine kilz is not needed unless wall stained, apply 2 coates finish paint

    I am going to assume that since it is all one color then it is white. Since there is no raw drywall then there is no need to use primer. Unless there are existing bad stains that you need to hide then you do not need kilz. If the walls are in good condition ie: paint bubbles or runs from the original paint job, then you are ready to paint. No other preparation is needed.

    Paint will not adhere over grease, so if there is already a deposit of cooking oil on the walls about your kitchen, get sugar soap to easily strip them down. Make sure you are using a paint that can be painted directly onto another surface. This is fine with most paints but some paints will not work that way. Read the labels.

    But if you are only going to use egg shell, why bother? Such a boring scheme. you have available a world of colours. Use it. Pompeian red walls with taupe ceiling in your dining room. Ultramarine walls and mustard ceiling for your lounge area. I’ll let you use eggshell in your bathroom, on the walls. Make the ceiling slate grey. Your kitchen –
    mint green walls with smokey pink ceiling. And for your bedroom, let’s see. A light purplish pink on all walls as well as ceiling. All over. Put yourself on an evening cloud. If you MUST have feature skirting boards, and door jambs, do not paint them white. I would opt for the colour of the room or else leave them the colour they now are. You would use a flat plastic paint for your walls and ceilings, and a gloss enamel if you intend to have feature door jambs. Just don’t overdo the featuring as your room colours will be the stars of the show.

    The white “paint” is builders primer.

    You don’t have to re-prime.
