Considering Bathroom Paints

By Heather Mitchell

Problems with peeling paints, mildew or mold may make people consider a new look for their bathroom. People may also think of doing a complete bathroom makeover when they are tired of seeing the same old design or pattern in their bathroom. Choosing the right bathroom paint can help you to create a nice and impressive bathroom.

If you are thinking of a fresh coat of bathroom paint because of problems such as mildew, mold or peeling paint, then you must first and foremost remove the peeling paint using sandpaper. You can kill the mildew or mold with a mixture of water and bleach. You must wash the entire bathroom with mild soap before starting on a painting job. Care should be taken to ensure that the bathroom surfaces are totally free of moisture before applying the paint.

As far as the type of bathroom paint is concerned, you can go in for high gloss or semi gloss paint. Today, you can also find special or exclusive bathroom paints that are mold resistant. Some brands of bathroom paints offer an array of color choices as well as guarantees against molding, mildew and peeling.

The size of the bathroom and the main users of the bathroom are the other important considerations on which you can base the decision of appropriate bathroom paint color or design. In smaller bathrooms, you can use bathroom paints in lighter shades such as white since it will help make the room appear bigger. For bigger bathrooms such as the master bathroom, you can use flattering shades.

If you are planning to paint your children’s bathroom, then you can choose vivid colors or designs. Kids learn new things even in the bathroom; by including imaginative designs such as a creature motif or mural, you can make the space look more inviting for kids. You can also include stencil designs along the edges or borders to enhance the look of your kid’s bathroom. While painting guest bathrooms, you can choose a shade that is similar or lighter than what is used in the guest bedroom.

You can choose to paint prints, solid colors or a mix of the two for a bathroom makeover. You can also choose bathroom paints based on the decorative items and bathroom fixtures such as light covers, towel racks, floor mats and shower curtain that you have already selected. If you wish to impart a soothing atmosphere, you can select bathroom paints in pastel colors. On the other hand, if you prefer to enjoy your bath in an energetic or upbeat atmosphere, bright colors such as Red, Yellow or Black can create the ideal effect. Generally, paper prints such as circles, rectangular shapes, angels, butterflies and jungle creatures are considered to be suitable designs for a bathroom space.

To conclude, the bathroom paint you choose and the design you go with have to be done with care since all other items such as curtains, rugs, shelves and shower curtains will be added based on this choice.
