Tape Off Everything

A really professional paint job is all about the preparation work. That is, if you want to paint job to look clean, you should expect to spend quite a bit of time taping and masking everything off. That is, you might even spend more time taping than you actually do a painting. But not only is the end result going to be nicer paint, but you will also save time when it comes to cleaning up at the end.

Use Brushes Along the Edges

In order to get the best finish along the edges and to create the straightest lines, you need to use brushes. For the majority of the painting, you will use rollers. But to get clean lines along the edges, you need to fine-tune it with actual paintbrushes. This usually ends up being more time consuming than actually using the rollers to get the majority of the paint on the wall, but it is important that you don't try to use a roller along the edges or else you will end up with a very uneven line, and it is more likely that you will get paint on the adjoining wall.
