When painting over a darker wall or even covering up a featured wall that was very dark you will have to at least allow a few extra coats of paint because white is very delicate color and will show any bleed through from the original painted wall. Quick note: when painting white it is always advisable to use a high hiding product such as Benjamin Moore paints or Sherwin-Williams paints or a topline dulux paint. Also the process in which the paint is applied is important. When trying to have a perfect coverage and hide is important to use proper painting equipment such as  good painting tools, I must stress everything should be a top grade painting tool. If you use a cheap course paintbrush it will leave lines, select a good quality paint roller that will lay the paint down evenly and smoothly.

The problem with flat white paint is that it smudges very easily and this might be the reason why you would want to go to a high-end premium paint such as Benjamin Moore regal or even aura paint.
