Bathroom Painting Prep To Know In Scappoose, OR

When you have a painting project that you need to take on, it's important to know about the various key steps that should be taken in preparing for the project itself.

This is certainly the case when you are working on painting your bathroom -- there are some steps that you are pretty much going to want to always cover -- and definitely the first time you find yourself painting your bathroom.

Making the time to take these preparatory steps will change your painting project from one that somewhat gets the painting work done to getting it done quite well and in a way that will leave you happy with the work that you did for years to come.

With that being the case, let's have a look at some tips for bathroom painting prep to know when you want an overall better painted bathroom.

1. Cleaning The Bathroom

One of the first things that you are going to want to do when you are painting your bathroom is to make sure that your bathroom is fully cleaned before you get started on your bathroom painting project.

This means that you have to be sure that your bathroom is fully clean and that you've removed any and all dirt and grime, sometimes even mold and mildew if that is found, from the surfaces that are going to be painted.

Though you might think that you can just apply primer and paint to the surfaces that will be painted, that doesn't mean that you can just start without cleaning first.

After you have made the time to clean the bathroom surfaces, you are going to want to allow time to let these surfaces to fully dry so that you don't have painting problems later on.

2. Planning Your Colors And Timing

Though you could of course come into your painting project and decide when you start painting what color or colors you are going to use, the better thing to do is to make the decisions beforehand.

You could go into a paint store and have a look at the colors they have available in terms of paint swatches - strips of paper with colors on them -- but this isn't the ideal way to choose a color or colors.

Getting actual paint samples that you can take to your bathroom and apply to the walls will help you to see how those colors will look in actuality -- in the different types of lighting that you can have -- this is a much better way to get an idea if the color or colors are for you.

3. Purchase Based On Measurements

It's quite understandable that you may want to eyeball your bathroom and get a feel for how much paint and primer you are going to need, but it's entirely possible that you are going to get too much or too little of either primer or paint for your painting project -- and both of these alternatives are not good for a painting project.

If you get too much paint and primer, for example, you will find yourself with an excess of them after you have finished the project and come to realize that you have nothing to do with them once you have finished.

Buying not enough paint and primer, on the other hand, will lead you to a situation where you run out during the project and make you have to suddenly go out and buy some more of it -- not ideal for when you are trying to get your painting done.
