Do you paint before you do flooring?

The answer to the question is,“do the floors first!” And here's why: Removing and replacing flooring or carpeting is dirty work. If you paint first, and then do floors, there is a good chance that a lot of dirt, dust, sawdust or tile/stone dust will end up on your freshly painted walls and trim.

Likewise, people ask, how do you paint a room with carpet?

Mask before painting by working from the room's doorway around the outside, laying 1-foot-long (30.48 cm) strips of masking tape at the edge to protect carpet. Tuck the tape over the carpet edge and just under the baseboard trim as you work. Use the putty knife to press the tape down into the space under the baseboard.

Do you paint before new carpet?

The painters will come in before carpet, kitchen cabinets, other floorings and other trades. They paint ceilings, doors(if installed), Trim and then single coat the walls. All other trades finish including carpet and other flooring.
