There are a number of important factors that you should always take note of when it comes to painting your bathroom. These are:
Use Bathroom Paint: Use the appropriate bathroom paint and this is different from your regular latex paint or primer. When you get to the hardware store, specifically ask for bathroom paint. These are paint that has mold-inhibiting agents and an improved surface for resisting moisture. Because the bathroom is often moist, mold tend to crop up in between tiled bathroom walls hence it is important to use paint that keeps molds from rapidly growing within the bathroom.
Shower Stall Walls: Know that painted drywall in the stall area of the bathroom is not a good idea, use tiles all the way up the ceiling or polymer shower stall materials. In the event your shower has drywall in the stall area, opt for the highest gloss bathroom-appropriate paint. Though going for these paint products may be a bit costly, it is worth the trouble.
Clean the Walls: There are parts of the home wherein keeping them unkempt for a short period of time is acceptable but with places that have tiled walls like the kitchen or the bathroom, it is paramount that you clean them on a regular basis, particularly the area where the shower and the sink are. Also take note that soap scum or residue can potentially damage the bathroom paint job.
Colors: Choose colors that are not too bright or too dark. Painting the bathroom a light blue color or a light yellow works well. On the other hand, there is no particular iron-clad rule when it comes to painting the bathroom, however you have the option of consulting with Vancouver painters, if you are unsure about which colors to choose.
Keep in mind that bathroom painting is different from painting the front porch of the house nor the master’s bedroom. Do not hesitate to contact painters in Vancouver in case you feel that you would need professional help in accomplishing the job.
