Here are some of the expert tricks which would make sure you have professionally done walls every time.

There is an obvious difference between using a rolling brush and using a paint gun. A paint gun will make your life that much easier while painting. For one, it is twice as fast as using a rolling brush, and they would do a much better job at filling in all the cracks and small pores on the wall for an even finish. So, next time you paint make sure you buy that expensive paint gun, it would be well worth it.
