Nowadays your bathroom is not only used for functional purpose, it is also a medium to manifest your personal vanity & style. A fresh coat of interior paints will just do what you need. During our house repainting services in Lynbrook, we have encountered many Australians asking DIY tips in order to repaint their bathroom.
Repainting your bathroom is relatively an easy DIY project which you can carried out on weekend. Here at Unistar Painting, our house repainters shares a few helpful bathroom repainting tips for the next time you decide to repaint your bathroom.
To refresh your bathroom, follow these simple steps:
- Choose Your Colour
Narrow down the colours you’re considering to a few that you like. Pick up samples for a few dollars each and try them on the wall in large enough swatches so you can see how the paint colour looks in the space at various times of the day.
- Gather Materials
The supplies necessary for painting the walls of a bathroom are quite basic. You’ll need: a roller, a tray, an angled paintbrush, painters’ tape, patch, sandpaper, a flat-head screwdriver to remove electrical plates, a tarp for the floor, and semi-gloss or satin paint.
- Pick the Type
Bathrooms are easy to paint with the water-based formulas available from Glidden Paint. You’re free to choose any sheen, but the semi-gloss and satin formulas are best for areas that are exposed to moisture since they are formulated to resist the growth of mildew on the paint film.
- Work Out on Preparation
With a screwdriver, remove any plates on your electrical sockets or light switches. Next wash down the walls with soap and water. Painters tape applied to the baseboard makes horizontal painting a breeze. Patch and sand any nail holes or dings. To protect your floors, a tarp comes in handy in case there are accidental drips or spills.
- Follow These Easy Steps
A good-quality angled brush is key for the initial step of “cutting in,” where you carefully paint the borders. There’s no need for painters’ tape along vertical edges if the hand and brush are steady. Once the edges are complete, use a lightweight nap roller dipped in a tray to cover the remainder of the walls with more speed and even coverage.
Once the first coat is dry, evaluate whether you’ll need a second. Often when the change of colour is subtle, a single coat will do, but if the change is more dramatic, you’ll likely need two coats. Also consider Glidden Paint’s Diamond formula for those dramatic wall changes from light to dark or dark to light; the primer qualities of the product will limit the need for more than two coats.
Repainting a bathroom is a satisfying process that doesn’t require anything more than the right supplies and a few hours of work. Step back at the end to admire your own handiwork.
