What are the 3 best tricks to painting a bathroom?

Whether you have one or five, it’s no secret that bathrooms are an essential part of any home. If you’re redoing your bathroom yourself or looking for a little bit of guidance, here are three painting tricks to make sure your transformation journey is fun and easy- and looks great when you are done.

1. Choose the Right Color

Because you’ll be spending time in your bathroom on a daily basis, a great color scheme is of the utmost importance when deciding how to paint your bathroom. A general rule of thumb is to choose a bright, spa-like palette. As most bathroom fixtures are white, this flows naturally within the already established light theme. Peach or pink tones work great if you’ll be applying makeup in the bathroom often, while blues or sage greens add a sense of serenity. However, don’t be afraid to go bold. The brightness of white appliances can be a great contrast to deeper, vibrant color choices if done well.

2. Choose the Right Finish

Flat, egg shell, or glossy? Once you’ve decided on that perfect color palette, you’ll want to select the right sheen of paint for your walls. Because bathroom walls will so often pick up moisture, a semi-gloss paint that is formulated for higher humidity may be the way to go. This will make wiping and washing the walls easy, repel mildew and withstand the typical bathroom wear and tear.

3. Choose the Right Brushes

Finally, you’ll want to pick up the right brushes for your paint job. After you’ve scrubbed any mold away and removed the appliances (if possible), start with the ceiling and add a layer of primer before your main color. While a roller will work well for the ceiling or the main part of the walls, you’ll also need some smaller brushes for detailing. An angled 1.5 to 2-inch brush will work best for trim around windows and doors.
