Paint Tape Width

My husband asked me to get some 2 inch painter's tape for him. I messed up and got the 1.5 inch tape instead. Oops! I offered to go exchange it but he said he'd make do.

What width of tape do you prefer to use?

I think that I normally use the 1.5 inch. Honestly, I never really paid too much attention. I don't think it matters too much as long as you are careful.

The wider the better for me. That way I stand less of a chance of getting paint in places that don't need paint. I was thrilled when I discovered this tape. It sure does save time.

OCDQueen, if you get the two inch tape, it's easier to use a roller all the way up to the edges. With narrower tape, you can't do that or you'll get paint on the adjacent surface.
