Painting Bathroom Walls

Painting bathroom walls is a fairly straight forward part of the renovation process.

But there are still a few tips worth keeping in mind when undertaking this task.

 

Tips for Painting Bathroom Walls

 

Depending on your design, the painting could take place on items such as ceilings, walls, doors, skirting boards, architraves and windows.

Below are my top 3 bathroom painting tips.
 

1. Mould Resistant Paint

 
My main piece of advice is to choose a good quality mould and bacteria resistant paint.

Bathrooms tend to contain high humidity and moisture levels that can easily lead to mouldy rooms if they are not ventilated correctly.

To avoid this happening, try and have a good mechanical ventilation fan installed.

2. The Devil’s in the Detail

 
Like all painting, the detail is in the preparation work that is initially done.

The more time and effort you put into puttying holes, patching and sanding any imperfections along with applying good quality undercoats, the better the finished result will be.

 

3. Cover All Fixtures & Fittings

 
Again it’s not rocket science but make sure all fittings, fixtures and tiles are completely covered to prevent any paint getting where it’s not supposed to be.

Prevention is better than cure – and you really don’t want to spoil your shiny new fixtures!
 
 
So that covers painting bathroom walls. Now lets move on to Stage 4: Construction – Glass Screens

 

To recap, the 5 Stage Renovation Process will guide you through the exact steps I use as a professional builder when working on home improvement projects.

If you have any questions let me know – I’m always happy to help!

Enjoy your renovation.

All the best,
