How to paint Internal doors – are often overlooked for their exterior counterparts, but they too need to be maintained. neglecting the upkeep of your internal door can lead not only to decreased durability and functionality- it’ll also result in an eyesore that’s difficult on you mentally! Painted semi-gloss paints will keep those painted surfaces looking good as new while offering up some fresh colours at every turn – what could be more inspiring?

Painting a Door – Choosing the best paint for your interior door.

If you’re looking to brighten up an otherwise drab room, then it’s time that we helped make things more interesting. Not only do beautiful doors give off great curb appeal but they also provide privacy and hide unsightly closed-in spaces such as utility rooms or basements (if applicable). When deciding what type of colour should go on this project there is nothing wrong with going with something bold like red; however, if space isn’t really allowing anything extra before the door, shades of white or beige may be best.


Now that you have chosen your perfect colour it is time to start the painting process. The first step is always to lightly sand the door with some fine-grit sandpaper so that the paint will stick to the door smoothly. After that, it is time to start taping off any areas that you don’t want to be painted such as the door handle, hinges, or any other hardware. Once everything is taped off you are ready to start painting!

To paint internal doors, start by applying the primer. Make sure it’s thoroughly dry before you add other paints to avoid any unnecessary strokes or brush marks on your project! Once that has been done follow these steps:

Apply another coat of primer over every inch (or square meter)of the surface area using a roller-brush starting at one edge and rolling across until complete coverage is achieved; leave this layer30 minutes for good measure then go back through again with fast hand movements + extra care around edges

The easiest type of door to paint is a flat one, like our primed 4-panel door. Simply use a roller and back brush immediately after rolling it for the texture that may be produced by the surface being too rough or textured panels in general – this will help you get rid of any excess material before painting other parts on top so there’s no chance at getting anything messy!

The raised-panel door is more time consuming to paint. Start by filling in the panels, working along their grain and making sure you cut carefully when painting around these areas so as not to have any runs or missed spots that will result in an uneven finish on your project at hand!

Most people run into problems when painting internal doors because they try to do it too quickly. Give yourself plenty of time and prepare for a couple of coats before you are satisfied with the end result.
