When you walk into your bathroom and notice that the paint is peeling, it can be disheartening. After all, no one wants to see a room in their home that looks neglected and run down. But don’t worry! There are ways to fix the issue and get your bathroom looking like new again. Let’s take a look at what you need to do when bathroom paint is peeling.
Remove the Old Paint
Before painting any wall, make sure you first remove all old peeling paint with a putty knife or an electric sander. A clean surface is essential for attaining a nice finish after painting. With these tools you can scrape off as much paint as possible to create the optimal surface for enabling a new coat of paint to stick. Although it might seems though that scrapers and sanders are comprehensive enough, if there are areas beyond repair due to heavy paint flaking or caveation, be sure to patch them up before beginning the painting process.
Prepare The Surface
The painting process is almost ready to begin! After you have removed all of the old paint, it’s time to get the surface in tip-top shape. Start by cleaning any dirt or dust with a damp cloth or sponge. You may need to take the extra step, depending on how rough the wall has become over time, of light sanding those areas down to create a smooth surface. Utilize thin grade sandpaper or steel wool to achieve the perfect texture before you begin prepping for the primer and new coat of paint. Prime up any patch spots that may be exposed after removing the old paint – a necessary step for helping your new beautiful new wall warmly accept that next coat of paint!
Paint The Walls
Now comes time for painting! Make sure you have chosen a high-quality interior latex paint for your project as this type of paint is best suited for bathrooms due to its durability and moisture-resistant properties. Once everything is prepped, apply two coats of your chosen color onto the walls using either a brush or roller – whichever gives you better coverage – allowing ample drying time between each coat. And voila! You now have brand-new looking walls in your bathroom!
Do you want to breathe new life into your bathroom? It’s not as complicated as it may seem! Just execute a few easy measures, and elegance is just around the corner without major cost or headache. Start with a good coat of paint. Peeling walls don’t have to be deterrents — they just need careful preparation or even a simple dusting before applying primer and brush. Doing it right means that even harder rooms won’t take up unexpected time, designed for minimal effort from your part.
