There is nothing more frustrating than discovering you don’t have the right size brush in the middle of a painting project. Who wants to have to stop painting and make a trip to a store, so that you can finish your project? To help you avoid that, our staff here at Kensington Paint & Decorating developed a list of tools you’ll need for most of your projects.

First of all, you will need a brush for painting trim and “cutting in” along edges as well as a roller for larger surfaces. Make sure you purchase premium quality tools, Premium tools will not only make the job go quicker and give you better results they will last a long time if you take care of them.

You will also need a paint tray, tools to open the paint can and stir the paint, drop cloths, painter’s tape, and an extension pole for the roller to reach tall walls and ceilings.

Benjamin Moore has created a paint kit that includes most of the tools you need for the average paint project. This seven-piece kit includes a nine-inch roller frame with two premium shed-resistant roller covers, a two-inch angle sash brush, a paint tray, a paint can opener, and a stirring stick.

If you have all the supplies you need before you start, that will help you focus on your painting and make the project go more smoothly. Order your starter kit today!
