One of the easiest and free-flowing paint projects that you could ever undertake is a bathroom painting project.
However, despite how easy a bathroom painting project may be, you still cannot take away the inevitable mess that’ll eventually happen in a painting project – and this mess sometimes makes the job extra tedious and hard.
But, it is a good thing that there are some tips and tricks you can keep up your sleeve to keep the mess at a minimum.
So, without further ado, here are Pro-Tips To Avoid Mess in Your Bathroom Painting Project.
In order to avoid making a mess in painting your bathroom, you will want to clear your bathroom space first.
As much as possible, you will want to free as much space as you can, since this will make it easier for you to move about and go as you make your way in painting your bathroom.
With having a wider space to freely move into, you can reduce the risk of tripping or slipping over something, which can potentially create the mess you’re trying to avoid in the first place since you’re essentially working with paint!
In doing this, you will want to clear your bathroom essentials and things such as your towels, your shampoo bottles, your soaps, and other things you may have in your bathroom.
To avoid making a mess while painting your bathroom, you will need to ensure first that your bathroom is not in a mess – this means you should do proper surface preparation and clean your bathroom first.
Over time, our bathrooms will naturally accumulate a thin film of muck or slime on their surface, due to their proximity to water and moisture, so you will want to remove these accordingly first before applying your first coat of paint.
It is important to get this done because painting on a filthy bathroom surface will just result in an overall messy and poor paint finish, which you will eventually need to redo and repaint.
You can do this with a simple brush and some kind of detergent, and proceed to scrub all those muck and slime away to prep your bathroom for a fresh coat of paint!
Of course, in painting your bathroom, you should ensure first that your bathroom floors are dry.
Because our bathrooms tend to be wet places, they can be slippery, and this could potentially cause the mess you’re trying to avoid in the first place.
Imagine handling paint and suddenly slipping over a wet floor – it’ll just be a mess all over the place.
Additionally, just like your bathroom walls, your floors could also acquire a thin film of slime and muck over time – which will make your floors even more slippery, and even more reason you will need to scrub them off your floors.
Just make sure that after all your process of cleaning your floors, you give them enough time to properly dry before setting foot there to start your bathroom painting project.
Lastly, in avoiding mess in painting your bathroom, you should remember to cover all your bathroom fixtures with a dropcloth.
While clearing your bathroom space, you would later discover that you cannot temporarily remove all your bathroom things – these include fixtures such as your tub, your toilet, your shower, your sink, and the like.
So, to avoid getting paint all over them while painting your bathroom (which potentially creates the mess you’re trying to avoid), you should cover them with a dropcloth.
Ideally, you would want to cover them with a canvass dropcloth, so paint won’t seep through them.
