The 3 Essential Tools for Painting High Ceilings

The thought of painting the vaulted ceiling in my home was painful. I let that painful thought sit in my mind for a good 3 months. Then I finally got over it and got to work! Here’s the deal: It doesn’t have to be painful. With the right tools, it’s actually quite simple. Other than the obvious painting items such as paintbrushes, paint, etc., you will need 3 specific tools.

  1. An 18-inch roller frame and 18-inch roller. These items will change your world! Seriously. Buy them. Right now. I use them all the time, even in rooms without vaulted ceilings. They make painting projects go about 5 times faster.

2. An extension pole to add to your roller frame so you can reach high places.

These come in various lengths so you can choose which one is right for you. Of course if you have 50 feet ceilings, you are not going to find one to meet your needs. However, if you have a standard vaulted ceiling, this extension pole will work magic for you. You will be able to paint everything except for the very edges of the room without stepping one foot on a ladder. It is a great time-saver!

3. A giant paint tray to fit your new roller.

Buy these specific items, grab your other standard painting items and you’ll be set to go to paint that annoyingly high ceiling!
