Do-It-Yourself Guide on How to Paint Your Bathroom

A painting job is not a very enjoyable task for most people. So, to reduce the effort that you have to put in and to make it an interesting endeavor, you need to make use of steps that can make painting easier than what it was before.

Take out your bathroom furniture. As you do not want to damage your furniture, you should take them outside and remove them from the room so they do not receive those splashes of paint.

Also, when you have cleared out a room, you can have more space in order to move and work well. You can avoid accidents from stepping on something or from hitting a furniture item. Bathroom vanities and cabinets are big hindrances in your path while working in the room so you have to take them out.

You should also remove switch and outlet covers if they are present. For items that you cannot remove, you can cover them with newspaper or plastic taped in place.

Assess what you need to paint and what you can paint. The materials that your bathroom is made from will dictate what you can paint. When your bathroom is covered in tiles, this makes it impossible to paint. Concrete and wooden bathrooms are good candidates for a paint job. These materials do not really require any special paints or chemicals before you can proceed with the task.

Choose your color. You also need to plan what color you want to paint your bathroom with. The color that you will use depends on how you want your bathroom to appear. Using light colors can make the room appear larger, cooler and brighter. If you use dark colors, the room can look smaller and of course, darker. You can make the room feel warm by using warm colors such as red and yellow.

The room’s design will also determine what color you can use. If you have modern bath vanities, you would want to use colors that are considered modern. This creates oneness in the room.

Clean the area. Before you start painting, you first need to remove dust, watermarks, etc from the place that you want to paint.

Cleaning also includes patching up areas that have cracks or holes. Aside from creating a good finish, repairing these cracks or holes should be done at this point as you can cover them with paint afterwards. This hides those unwanted patches.

Ensure that there is enough light. Open all windows and doors to get as much light as you can into the room. You can also bring extra lights when you are painting small areas or corners of the bathroom to make sure that you get to do the job well.

Begin painting. Have your brushes or roller, roller trays, and paint ready as you can now start painting. For a better finish, you can apply a prime coat first. Then, you can redo the layer to make it balanced.

As in any painting job, you need to use even and consistent strokes. Also, ensure that you have all areas covered before you fix your painting materials.
