How many coats of paint should you put on a wall that is newly renovated and primed?

Cynth, thanks for the question. I believe that a great looking paint job requires 2 coats of paint, in addition to the underlying primer coat. Although many paint companies do advertise premium quality paints that may adequately cover a wall with a single coat, I prefer to apply a second coat of paint to cover up any imperfections from the first coat.

These imperfections, such as brush or roller marks, are not always noticeable until the first coat of paint completely dries, and that second coat can ensure a quality looking paint job that is flawless!
