In this regard, should I cut in or paint the walls first?
Pros usually follow a certain order when painting a room. They paint the trim first, then the ceiling, then the walls. That's because it's easier (and faster) to tape off the trim than to tape off the walls. When painting the trim, you don't have to be neat.
Subsequently, question is, should you cut in on the second coat of paint? The process of applying a second coat of colored paint to your interior walls is the same as you used for the first coat. Begin at the top corner of one wall with an angled brush and cut in along the trim and in the corners. When you're done, roll the paint on in small sections.
Considering this, do you cut in twice before rolling?
Cut, roll, cut, roll. Don't cut in twice and then roll. Cut in one coat and then roll on one coat, so the coats dry together and create a smoother finish.
Can you cut in and paint the next day?
You can cut-in around the trim either before or after rolling. Because the drying time of flat and eggshell latex paint is so short, you can cut-in an entire room before filling in the walls. If the ceiling is being painted a different color, paint it first and then the walls.
