Painting a wall with white colourThere are many reasons why you may choose to paint a wall. You may want to simply restore the existing colour of a wall once again or you may want to bring a new look and feel to an area so want a complete colour change.

No matter the reason for painting a wall, a common painting question is will more than one coat of paint be required? There are a few factors that will determine this. Read on to learn 3 questions to ask yourself when deciding if more than one coat of paint will be needed including:

  • What is the colour difference between the existing and new paint colour?
  • Has the wall been prepped to be painted correctly?
  • Are you using a high-quality paint product?

What is the colour difference between the existing and new paint colour?

To put it simply, the bigger the difference between the existing colour of a wall and the new colour, the more coats of paint that will generally be needed. Many people may be deterred from going for a big colour change knowing the work and number of coats potentially needed, however professional painters have the expertise and experience in complete colour changes meaning it’s all in a day’s work.  

Has the wall been prepped to be painted correctly?

Correct preparation before painting a wall is crucial to ensure the best quality finish. Any chips or cracks should be filled in and sanded before a wall is painted. A primer prepares a surface before it’s painted and can help ensure the colour change from one colour to another is seamless.

As with most things, the higher the quality, the better the finish. Painting is no different. Using leading and highly reputable paint brands such as Taubman’s and Dulux will ensure a high standard finish that will be maintained over time. Before employing the services of a professional painter, it is important to ensure their work is fully guaranteed and compliant with the current Australian Standard.
