Painting a bathroom is a totally different painting and preparation project compared to painting other rooms that do not see moisture and very often, minimal light.
The team at Express Painters Brisbane understand how difficult it can be for an unqualified layman to paint a bathroom properly without the benefit of experience, and so we have composed a few tips to help you out.
There are a wide range of things that need to be considered, such as;
- the texture of the walls
- the colour of the tiles, glass and vanity tops
- the amount of light that gets into the room
- humidity levels at the time of painting
- the overall layout that you are going to apply in all your bathrooms.
In order to get you commenced on painting a bathroom, here are a few tips that can help:
Paint colour shades are very important in the bathrooms. Opting for a plain white finish will not really show much of a change, so it can be a wise idea to choose some bright, fresh colours that match the tiles in your bathroom. We believe it is important to create a colour sequence rather than going for the exact same colour all over.
Moisture plays a very big part in the bathrooms. This means that using the standard paint is not a good idea if you are looking for a paint finish that will stand the test of time. There are a variety of paints that are specifically designed for bathroom wall and ceiling painting. Make sure you research those before you start painting your bathroom.
Before you begin to paint your bathroom, the removal of the fixtures from your bathroom walls will make life a whole lot easier (and protect your fittings from paint splashes etc.). Fittings such as toothbrush holders, towel rails, mirror sockets, etc. should be removed in order to allow for a good quality flow for the coat of paint. This is what the professional painters at Express Painters Brisbane do. If something cannot be removed, it is covered over and masked – we leave nothing to chance.
