The Best Way to use a Paint Roller

When decorating a home for the first time, there are a few techniques you will need to master - like using a paint roller.


For someone who has painted more than a few walls in a lifetime, it can be hard to understand that it's not an easy task for a first-time home decorator. But painting a home involves a few techniques and in this feature we focus on the best method for painting walls using a paint roller.

Painting doesn't have to be a laborious task if you use the right paint, buy the proper tools and master the techniques. While you will need a paint brush to 'cut-in' around the edges and paint small or detailed areas, using a paint roller lets you cover large areas with ease.

Paint rollers are available in different materials that are suitable for any painting project.
