Even though whitening ceilings with chalk is the cheapest method, most people prefer doing it with emulsion (unlike synthetic and oil-based paint it is “breathable”). But whichever method you pick for painting your ceiling, first it has to be prepared accordingly. Wash off old paint using a decorator’s brush and some water.

If the ceiling is especially sooty or heavily stained, mix in some special store-bought chemical compound. If the ceiling has cracks, cover them up with putty – first, make them slightly deeper and wider and then cover with putty. When the putty dries (after about half an hour), polish it with sandpaper. If you noticed that after the previous repair the ceiling got cracked, it may happen again after the new one. In such a case, cover the ceiling with a special screen before painting.

When the ceiling is ready, cover it with the first layer of paint or primer. Do that with a painter’s brush (but don’t spray) so that the paint would adhere to the surface and fill all of the ceiling’s pores. Paint the second layer with a roller or spray it with sprinkler, making sure that the paint covers the ceiling evenly – not too thin, not too thick.

Start the painting process at the furthest corner of the room and move towards the door.

In order to avoid visible paint streaks or stripes that differ in color, paint the whole area in one go.

In order to avoid traces left by a paintbrush (if you’re using a painter’s brush), paint the penultimate layer vertically to the direction of light (windows) and the last one – towards the direction of light.

Smooth, completely white – painted or bleached ceilings (by way of spraying or vacuuming) were considered to be the norm for decades. As times passed, fashions changed – ceilings were wallpapered, later, emulsion became available in stores and was used to coat the ceilings of most apartments. Then the era of suspended ceilings arrived. Lately, new ideas started gaining popularity, for example, stretch ceilings or French stretch ceilings, but simple, bleached ones remain relevant to this day.

For whitening ceilings, both – lime and glue paint may be used. The former is usually used for painting auxiliary premises because it is also a decent disinfectant. Living quarters are mostly painted with glue paint (you won’t find ready-to-use glue paint in stores). Getting them ready for use is relatively easy, besides – the necessary materials are not expensive. You will need the following: finely ground chalk (3-4kg), ultramarine – just a few grams will prevent the chalk from becoming yellow, glue (200-500g) and water (about 10 liters).

Submerge pre-sieved chalk or chalk paste into water and strain it through a screen. Slowly add very small amounts of ultramarine. Dilute the glue (1-1,25l of water for 200-250g of glue) separately and pour in the chalk, all while stirring continuously.

A tendency that became popular during the past few years is an open layout of the apartment, where the quarters are joined together and separated from each other with transparent, sliding or rollable structures. A sliding exterior wall with a view to the garden is especially cozy. In order to realize such a project within a house that’s already been built, a reconstruction is necessary, but before doing that, make sure to find out which cases require a building permit and which do not.

The conditions set for issuing them change over time, so it would be best to go to the Department of Building Construction and request the needed information. The owner of a house has the right demolish intermediate walls and build new ones in their place, provided that the main structures remain intact.

A project and a building permit will definitely be required if the interior walls are demolished permanently or their location is changed. In this case you would be best advised to consult with an expert and evaluate the situation together. You may not need to coordinate the plans if you do not want to change the façade of the building (just to glass the loggias, install grills) and if you will replace old windows with new windows of the same color and retain their original arrangement. Make an agreement with your municipality about the process of taking out construction waste and the allowed noise level during the repairs.
