Bathroom Cabinet Painting With Less Mess In Scappoose, OR

Your bathroom cabinets might be well constructed and be top of the line as far as the materials go, but if it has been a really long time since they were painted or the colors that were chosen for the previous paintwork no longer look right in your world, it means that it's likely time to paint them.

Of course, the act of painting your bathroom cabinets can be a bit on the messy side but the good news is that it doesn't have to be -- and with some tips here we will see how easily you can paint your cabinets without too much mess.

With that being the case, let's have a look at some tips for painting your bathroom cabinets with less mess while keeping them looking good.

1. Removing The Hardware

When you're looking to paint your bathroom cabinet or cabinets, you are likely to look for ways that you can save time in the process.

However, on top of not saving you that much time, leaving your hardware on your cabinets is one way that you are almost surely going to have a more messy painting project.

By removing the hardware on your cabinets, you will have the opportunity to paint over the surface of the doors and drawers without concern of running up against said hardware.

Some people also appreciate the opportunity to remove the hardware and think about how they might want to replace it with different looking hardware.

2. Painting More Slowly

Another way that people seem to like to get their painting projects done more quickly is to try to paint more quickly -- but on top of ultimately not making for a shorter project, it makes for a messier one.

For one, as people are moving about applying paint to the cabinet, they are more likely to slosh it out of the paint tray they are using to get the paint on the cabinet -- and where will that sloshing paint go but directly onto the floor whether it is covered or not.

By taking your time while you are painting, you will also get to paint with fewer mistakes -- these are the kinds of mistakes that a person might make if they move the brush over the surface too quickly and apply too much or too little paint.

Those sorts of mistakes then have to be corrected before the paint dries, which means that it will take just as long if not longer than had you painted more slowly.

3. Planning The Paintwork

One of the best ways that you can prevent a mess from happening starts when you plan the paintwork that you are going to be doing over the course of a few days.

The idea of planning your painting project really begins with the simple act of measuring the surfaces that are going to be painted, so that you have an idea of how much paint and primer you are going to need as well as how long it's really going to take you when you take drying into consideration.

You'll then be able to better make a plan for the painting that will help you avoid suddenly needing to rush out to buy needed supplies that you might have forgotten.

4. Remove Nearby Furniture

There are few things that will cause you the chance to make a mess while you are painting quite like furniture -- it can be quite a stumbling block for you during the painting process.

Even if you move the furniture away from the area where you are painting, it's going to be better than leaving it near you as you risk getting paint on this furniture.

Better to move it away and perhaps even cover it with a tarp so you don't risk getting paint on it.
