More Bathroom Painting Tips To Know In Palos Verdes Estates, CA
We have previously discussed the ways you can improve upon a bathroom painting project, making the end result look better and take less time overall.
Today we return to this subject to bring you some additional advice on how you can better paint your bathroom.
Let’s have a look at some more bathroom painting tips to know in order to have an overall better painted bathroom.
1. Prepare Before You Paint
One of the most important things that you’re going to want to do when you’re getting ready to paint your bathroom is to make sure that you are ready in terms of supplies and the right measurements first.
The supplies in this case will be the paint and the primer as well as a paint tray, a good paint brush or two, and a paint roller to properly apply the paint and the primer to the walls.
The measurements will come into play before you even get the supplies as you will be able to get a calculation of how long the painting project is going to take you but you will also be able to figure out the right number of gallons of paint and primer to buy.
It’s understandable that buying too much paint is a bad thing as you’ll just be spending money on something that will ultimately go unused but did you know that not buying enough is also in a sense a waste of money?
This is because doing this will ultimately lead to your needing to go and get more of the same and it’s entirely possible that the first place you go will be out leading to more time (hence money) spent getting it — if you can even get it for the same price!
2. Take Your Time When Painting
When you are working on painting your bathroom, you may find that the entire project can be so large that you want to paint more quickly to get the painting done sooner, but this is not a good idea.
In rushing through your painting, you are much more likely to possibly spill paint, which if it gets in the wrong places can cause quite a mess and thus needs to be cleaned.
Moreover, you may make a mistake during the painting process that needs to be corrected — and the time that you take to fix all of the different mistakes that you make will most often overlap the time that you saved by painting more quickly.
Painting more slowly will lead to a better painting project and in some ways is more relaxing as a way to paint.
3. Take Out The Hardware
There are few things that are in your bathroom that are going to get in the way of the painting process quite like the hardware that you have in the room.
These will come in the form of the bars that you have for holding up your towels and the like, the toilet paper holder if you have one attached to the wall, and even the light switch and electrical outlet covers.
By removing this hardware you are going to make the entire painting process a lot more simple — you aren’t going to have that hardware in the way while you paint and additionally you will not risk the possibility of getting paint on that hardware.
4. Let Your Walls Dry
Lastly, you should always remember that you’re going to need to allow your walls to dry after anything you do that will require them to do so.
If you try to apply primer to the walls before they are fully dry or to apply paint to the walls before the primer coat or first coat of paint is dry, you will find that painting problems arise – the sort that can be quite easily avoided.
