Your bathroom cabinets are an important part of the bathroom storage experience — after all if you don’t have your bathroom cabinets, what are you going to do, just leave everything piled around the bathroom looking like an episode of a television show about people who have no control of their possessions?
However, did you know that in the act of trying to paint their bathroom cabinets (an act that is certainly a good one to take on, being a much better way to improve your bathroom rather than entirely replacing the cabinets) you may ultimately make them worse if you in the painting make some fundamental cabinet painting mistakes?
You may be relieved to know that if you are aware of these mistakes you will be able to avoid them, and so we are here to teach you about the mistakes and help you get around them by not making them in the first place.
When you’re looking to paint your bathroom cabinets, you’re going to want to first make sure that there are no signs of mold and mildew.
The thing about mold and mildew is that they can be downright insidious and before you know it they can go from being small and barely visible to being quite, well, a beast of an issue that will be present even if you have recently painted.
To avoid this issue, you should first properly check your bathroom cabinet for any sign of mildew and mold as well as the rest of your bathroom — that mold and mildew have a bad tendency to spread far and quickly.
There are quite a lot of bathroom colors that can be found in any given bathroom, and when you want to paint your cabinets you should look at those colors before you decide on what color or colors you’re going to paint your bathroom cabinets.
The worst thing that you might possibly do as far as colors go is to just choose a color or colors based on what you think would look entirely independent of the other room contents.
You’ll know the sinking feeling when you have finished painting the cabinets and you suddenly realize that as wonderful as the colors were, they actually look terrible compared to the rest of the room.
You have to make sure that you protect surfaces when you are painting – it’s one of the important things that need to be done when you are painting in general, let alone your bathroom cabinets.
Though you might think that you’re somehow going to be extra careful when you’re painting, there’s almost always at least a little dripping and you had better believe that it’s better to make time to protect surfaces and then remove the protective material than trying to clean paint off of surfaces that didn’t need to get them.
You’re already going to be going through the effort of removing the hardware on your bathroom cabinets before you paint them, so why not think about the possibility of getting other hardware?
There are plenty of places where you’re going to be able to buy hardware for the cabinets and it doesn’t mean that you’re going to be spending a lot of money — sometimes you’ll even find hardware for the bathroom cabinets at a thrift store and they will look quite nice!
