This wiki has been updated 11 times since it was first published in March of 2018. While the sheer square footage of your walls may seem like the most daunting part of any DIY painting job, the devil is in the details. Rollers can make quick work of all that empty space in the middle, but when it comes to getting clean lines along your baseboards or ceiling, you're going to need specialized tools. Something from our selection of paint edgers should do the trick. When users buy our independently chosen editorial picks, we may earn commissions to help fund the Wiki.

Editor's Notes

July 07, 2019:

If you're planning on painting a room in your home — or even an area on the outside of your home — a solid edger is a must-have. After putting in all that hard work, the last thing you want to deal with is imperfect corners or trim. These tools are crafted for making even lines, so your paint job doesn't end up looking sloppy. Many of the items featured here have ergonomic handles, replaceable pads, extension pole compatibility, and more, so you can get your project done efficiently, and without sacrificing the quality of the finished product.

The Geniuskids 5-Piece Kit and Padco 2200 have been removed due to availability concerns. By contrast, the Shur-Line Applicator, Yukaki Best, Yukaki Pad Set, Accubrush MX Jumbo Kit, and Wagner Spraytech are all brand-new additions to the list. Several of the newbies contain multiple tools for addressing a range of painting challenges, while others feature highly specialized designs that are intended to make edging a less frustrating task.
