5 Bathroom Cabinet Painting Mistakes To Avoid in Palos Verdes Estates, CA

You have a beautiful bathroom but you notice that there’s just one thing that is making the difference between it being quite perfect and the way that it is now — a bit on the lacking side so to speak and that one thing is the cabinets.

If you’re looking at your bathroom cabinets and you notice that they’re fairly solid but just need a bit of updating as far as the look goes, you may want to think about giving the cabinets a bit of a paint job so to speak.

However, you may want to know that it’s entirely possible that any given paint job and bathroom cabinet paint jobs are included in this, could end up being thrown off course as a direct result of mistakes — mistakes that you can certainly avoid if you take the time to read this and think it through as to how you will apply it.

Let’s now look at five-bathroom cabinet painting mistakes to avoid in Palos Verdes Estates, CA

1. Using The Right Sort Of Paint

The first thing that you should know about painting your bathroom cabinets is that you’re going to have to take the time to research and find the right sort of paint that will go with the bathroom cabinets.

That means that you need to do more than to just find a paint that you will be using on the interior of the house as there are plenty of interior paints that won’t work so well on your bathroom cabinets.

Rather, you need to also think about the fact that your typical bathroom can get quite humid, and if you don’t make use of paint that has a resistance to humidity, there’s a good chance that you will find yourself facing the dreaded mold sooner than not.

2. Checking For Sources Of Mold

Speaking of mold, there’s going to be more than just the use of the right sort of paint when it comes to preventing mold in your bathrooms and in particular in relation to the bathroom cabinets.

There are quite a few sources of mold, one being the pipes that you can sometimes find going through your bathroom cabinets — you should make sure that they are not leaking at all and if they are, take the measures necessary to seal the pipes or otherwise fix them so they will not drip their way to a moldy future.

3. Cleaning Before You Start

Another crucial thing that you should do before you start the actual painting is to clean the cabinets.

By doing so you ensure that you will have better overall paintwork and that your paint will most definitely adhere well to the cabinets — certainly more so than if you do not clean them first.

4. Protecting The Floor

In painting your bathroom cabinets, you’re going to notice that it’s quite possible for the paint to drip down during the painting process.

A good way to avoid this is by first laying down a drop cloth in the area where you are going to be painting and then starting the paintwork — by doing so you will see that the paint only goes onto the drop cloths instead of the floor, and that will be much easier to clean.

5. Removing The Hardware Before You Paint

Lastly, you need to remove the hardware — the pulls that you use to open and close the bathroom cabinets — prior to painting the bathroom cabinets.

If you don’t do so, you will have to spend significantly more time trying to avoid painting the hardware, and it will seem like you’re saving time but you will actually spend more time than if you just remove them in the first place.

On top of that, you might even find that there are pieces of hardware that would look better with your bathroom cabinets.
