Need wall & ceiling paint recommendations

We have to repaint the walls in our apartment but as we've never done it before, any personal advice would be really welcome: Where is the best place to buy the interior paint here- eg DIY places like Jumbo, Hornbach or some specialized stores? Any personal experiences about what kind of local paint to (not) use? Also, can one paint over the wallpaper (if it's white)?

Re: Need wall & ceiling paint recommendations

When I repainted a room in my apartment I went to Hornbach and got the paint there. It was white (of course), but the sales advisor recommended I got a special kind of paint that was designed for covering up stains and odours (particularly from smoking). Not that I am a smoker, but they said this paint was the best when moving out.

This was the paint:

Re: Need wall & ceiling paint recommendations

Go to an OBI or any store you've mentioned. See their wide range of colors. Choose!!

Most paints are available in Matt or gloss !!
If you have toddlers/kids or are painting in an area where there are chances of spillage, use a gloss finish , as its very easy to wipe off!!
