Dulux: Before you start painting

When decorating it is important to remember to protect anything that you do not want to get covered in paint or dust. The best way to do this is to move all large items into the centre of the room and then cover with a clear plastic dust sheet. This is so anyone coming into the room will be able to see what is under the sheet and will help to avoid the risk of putting things on your precious items.
