Ceilings aren’t easy, but if it is just painting then it isn’t that difficult, just time consuming. A landlord should let you paint if it is a neutral sort of colour. Start with a good clean with sugar soap, rinse and let dry. Use good quality paint, do the gloss first. For emulsion on walls a roller is usually best with just a brush for the fiddly bits. Buy disposable rollers because I don’t find that they clean up very well.

I am sure there must be lots of information on You Tube, etc. and the people in the shop where you buy the paint should help and have leaflets. Paint always seems more expensive that you expect!
