Painting Walls with Mini Roller

I'm painting my kitchen (small) this weekend and have come to the conclusion that there is really only 3 small sections where I can use a full size roller. A lot of the area is under and around cabinets, windows, and doors that I will and need to use a mini roller.

So, to make it easier and cleaner I was thinking I'd just use the mini roller to do the full wall sections as well.

Mini rollers work great for a lot of things but I'm not sure how well it would work on a full wall. How big are the sections? The worst that would happen with a small roller is the paint might not be nice and even [another coat applied correctly should fix that]

You can do it, up to you to decide whether it's worth the extra time and effort to paint with a smaller roller versus cleaning up two of them.

Another option is to seek out a 7" roller. They aren't common any more, but can be found. It might be small enough to be useful in more areas.

If you wrap the roller cover in foil or plastic wrap and put it in the fridge, you can avoid cleaning it between coats and just do it at the end.
