Conventional paints only have a limited ability to mask surface imperfections. Don’t underestimate the importance of preparing surfaces thoroughly to achieve a smoother, more even finish. Between coats you may need to sand off any bumps or re-fill any imperfections before applying the next coat.
Never try to paint over an area that has partly dried as the brush or roller can pick up the first coat resulting in unsightly brush marks and uneven roller texture.
Remove door knobs, light switch and powerpoint covers and curtain rod brackets before you start painting. It is much easier and faster to remove these items and reinstall them rather than trying to work around them and the overall finish will look more professional.
