3 – Use the proper product

For ceilings, use flat paint. It hides imperfections, doesn’t show light or glare, and doesn’t show roller marks.

4 – Roll your ceilings, lay them out, and roll them in the proper direction

Think about where the light is coming from and where a person or a guest to be predominately standing and seeing the ceiling.

Work in small squares. Roll all of them in the same direction, and then pick your nap up, and go the same direction. You want that stippling to all be going the same way, so you don’t cast different looking shadows.

5 – Paint the vents and lights

Lights, vents, and any type of fixtures that are mounted into the ceilings, they turn yellow over time and may look old. Matching and blending them with the ceiling will make them look a lot better. Typically they are metal and high gloss. Use an extreme bonding primer, then take a handheld sprayer. Go around and spray them with the flat wall paint.
