You may recall that we previously mentioned that it’s important to avoid making mistakes when you’re in the process of painting your bathroom cabinets.
In the course of painting your bathroom cabinet, there are some other mistakes that are possible to make — and it’s best if you avoid these as well, for you can have a better painted set of bathroom cabinets if you avoid them.
Let’s have a look at some more bathroom cabinet painting mistakes to avoid when you want well painted bathroom cabinets.
A mistake that is too commonly made. when people are painting their bathroom cabinets is in not making use of a mold or mildew resistant paint.
Though of course you can just as easily spend a good amount of time regularly checking for mold and mildew to ensure that there is none to be found (and a good practice is in a bathroom as you certainly don’t want to deal with mold in your home ever) if you use a mold or mildew resistant paint, you are going to have an easier time with this by the very nature of the paint.
Though the mold and mildew resistant qualities of the paint don’t last forever (and this is appropriate as your paintwork won’t last forever, either) you should know that it’s well worth making use of a mold or mildew resistant paint to ward off the nasty stuff even for a number of years.
In the course of trying to paint your bathroom cabinets in a manner that is as efficient as possible, you might think that it’s a good idea to leave on the hardware so you can possibly paint the cabinets more quickly.
What you should know is that this would not only get your cabinets painted more quickly, it’s entirely possible that your cabinets would be painted worse thanks to how you’d be painting the cabinets with the hardware still on it.
As mentioned in our previous article, you can also take the time with the hardware off to think about changing up the hardware.
When you are painting your bathroom cabinets, you may well want to save some time by rushing a bit in your painting and perhaps even painting when your surfaces haven’t fully dried.
There are quite a few steps along the process of getting your bathroom cabinets painted that involve the surfaces being wet — whether it is from when you make the time to clean the surfaces thoroughly or after you have sanded the surfaces and you have just cleaned off the sanding dust.
If you aren’t careful to allow time to pass for these surfaces to dry, you will make for quite an unpleasant mess and perhaps create some of the bigger painting problems that can be made, including finding bubbles in your paint surface.
Ventilation is an issue that you have to consider when you are painting any room in your home, and the bathroom is certainly no exception.
With the kinds of fumes that you can sometimes find in any given painting project, you are going to need to have some kind of airflow in place so that you have fresh air while you are painting the bathroom cabinets.
One of the best things that you can do is to open up the door and then, ideally, to open up the windows in the bathroom as well so that you can get some kind of crossbreeze in the bathroom.
By properly ventilating, you will make for an overall better painting project.
