The three main things to consider when choosing a brush are as follows: the type of bristle, the job and the paint being used. As a general rule, use natural or mixed bristle brushes for oil-based paints and synthetic brushes for water-based paints.Shop all Paint Brushes
These are hard-wearing and last a lot longer than natural bristles. They don’t tend to produce tramlines in paintwork as they don’t absorb water and swell like natural bristles.
They don’t work well with water-based paints but they do grab and hold solvent paint well and their split ends help to produce a fine finish.
The larger the area you’re painting, the larger the brush should be. A 1" or 2" brush will give you flexibility when painting doors and skirting boards. For cutting in, we recommend a 2" or 3" brush or a smaller, angled brush. A 5" brush is good for floors, walls and ceilings.

Rollers are great for painting large areas, especially ceilings. The type of roller you choose depends on the wall surface. The rougher the surface of a wall, the longer the hair on the sleeve should be.Shop all Paint Brushes

Always wash new rollers and brushes before use to remove any manufacturing residue or dust.
For walls and ceilings, you’ll need emulsion. Emulsion is a water-based paint and can be applied directly onto previously painted walls, lining paper or textured wallpaper. It usually needs at least two coats and if you’re painting over darker colours or new plaster, maybe more. Emulsion comes in these finishes:
You’re now ready to prepare the walls and woodwork.
You’re now ready to paint.
It’s best to paint top to bottom to avoid any paint dripping from the ceiling onto the walls or drips from the walls landing on the skirting or woodwork. We recommend painting in the following order:
Always follow the manufacturer's instructions and allow the paint to dry before applying the next coat. If you can, leave doors and windows open to aid ventilation.
Use Pink To White Emulsion to ensure you get the best coverage. It’s almost impossible to paint white on white without missing a patch but this paint goes on pink and dries white so you can easily see any areas you might have missed.
