Want to know if pink paint is hard to cover? Keep reading, my friend.
There’s no hiding from it, pink is everywhere right now; hot pink is having a huge moment in fashion and pink interiors can be seen, well, everywhere.
But as popular as pink is, it’s not for everyone.
Maybe you’ve moved house or you’re just redecorating and you need to cover up a pink wall – is it easy to do.
I have to say, pink is one of my favourite colours, but I do feel for the person who takes on my pink house after I leave, the paint has crept in all over the place.
DO YOU NEED PRIMER OVER PINK PAINT
It depends on how dark and saturated the pink paint you want to cover is; if it’s Barbie pink then you’re going to want to be meticulous with the primer.
While many modern paints now include a primer, if you’re painting over a very dark-coloured wall, it’s still a good idea to use one. Priming will give even coverage, protect the walls and help to save some of the top coat paint which is usually more expensive.

In my experience, using good-quality paint is going to save you time and (probably) money (in the end) so I’d go for the best quality primer your budget will allow.
This one from Dulux is a good choice:

Tip: tint your primer with some of the top coat to help with a good coverage
WHAT COLOUR CANCELS PINK
Green cancels pink, they’re opposite each other on the colour wheel, so paint with green undertones (or green paint) is going to help cancel out pink and red.
WHAT IS THE HARDEST PAINT COLOUR TO COVER?
Intense red, blue, green and orange are the hardest paint colours to cover, but that doesn’t mean it’s impossible. As long as you’re prepared to put in the work, anything is possible.
