Bathroom Painting Tips

Posted on July 8, 2019

Paint is such a crucial element of any room, as it can make or break your entire setup. While good quality paint will certainly help ensure that your paint job turns out well, there’s a lot more to painting the bathroom than just the quality of the paint you choose. If you’re undergoing bathroom remodeling and you’re having your walls repainted, you might want to take note of the following tips to help ensure that your bathroom’s paint job turns out well and maintains it’s flawless appearance overtime:

Upgrade Your Ventilation

If your bathroom ventilation isn’t strong enough for the space you have in your bathroom, you might want to talk to a bathroom remodeling professional about upgrading it. No matter how well your bathroom is painted, if it isn’t properly ventilated, the dampness and temperature changes inside will likely cause your paint to chip easily. If you want the paint in your bathroom to remain flawless, ventilation is an important aspect of the job.

Pay Attention to Paint Around the Windows

If your windows are the type that you open and close a lot and if you use the window’s ledge as temporary storage for toiletries, candles, and other things, then you have to make sure that the paint around your windows are extra durable, as this area is more prone to wear and tear than other parts of your wall. To ensure that it remains flawless overtime, use paint that is meant for exterior surfaces, as they are generally more durable than interior paint.

Consider How the Paint Will Look With Natural Lighting

If your bathroom has access to natural light, you should check out how the paint color you choose would look during the day as well as at night with artificial lighting. If you’re having your bathroom painted during the day, you can close off the windows to check out how it would look at night.

You should also make sure that your drywall has a nice and even texture so that the paint can be applied smoothly. Make sure to work with a bathroom remodeling professional if you need drywall installation as well.
