In the renovation and updating of your home, it’s entirely possible that you’re going to want to make your bathroom look better — and the bathroom cabinets are one aspect of the bathroom that can be given a nice update.
Though cabinets can be a bit complicated, you can have a much better time if you know what you’re doing and come equipped with both the right hardware as well as some practical tips to make the work easier.
One thing that you should think about when you’re looking at painting your bathroom cabinets is how the new color you’re considering is going to look compared to the hardware that you have on the cabinets.
The reason that this is important is that if you find yourself with paints that may not be necessarily compatible with the hardware on your cabinets, it could be easier to change the hardware on the cabinets than to try to change the color that you use for painting them.
A fundamental starting point when you’re looking to paint your bathroom cabinets is having clean surfaces on which to paint.
There are many reasons that this is a good and important thing to do is that you won’t want to paint on top of a dirty surface, because it’s going to be far from a smooth surface.
At the start of a painting project such as one in which you’re painting your bathroom cabinets, you need to clean them well.
Since you’re going to be cleaning your bathroom cabinets, it’s a good idea to look out for mold and mildew — for in a typical bathroom environment, it’s going to be one of the things that may spring up if you’re not careful.
Even if you took all precautions, it’s entirely possible that you will still see some mold eventually… but that doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t continue to take precautions to prevent it from happening in the future.
The preventative measures that we mentioned earlier are the ones we are going to explain further here — specifically, to help stop mold and mildew from being an issue on your bathroom cabinets.
Specifically, you should make sure that you use paint that is good for preventing mold and mildew, as this is often the kind that is recommended for areas such as bathrooms and other areas that have higher amounts of moisture.
Though there are some surfaces in the area that are going to be painted, you should bear in mind that there are plenty that are not going to be painted — and the closer they are to the bathroom cabinets, the greater the need for them to be protected.
The floor near the cabinets being painted, for example, should be covered with a heavy drop cloth so that paint doesn’t get on the floor.
In the pursuit of well painted bathroom cabinets, it’s a good idea to look carefully at the various colors that you’re going to have in front of you in terms of selection.
The thing about paint colors is that since the bathroom might be one of the smaller rooms in your home, the intensity of the color will really be accentuated by the size.
Lastly, since you’re already in the remodeling mood you might want to take the time to think about also replacing your sink.
Of course, it’s not something that’s absolutely necessary — but it may be nice to have a nice new sink to go with your newly painted bathroom cabinets.
