Bathroom Cabinet Painting Errors Not To Make In Pocopson, PA
Sometimes you will have a look around your bathroom and think to yourself how you can improve the look of the room, and your attention may turn to the cabinets in the room.
You don’t even have to think about replacing the cabinets entirely, however, when you can do quite well by painting them — though of course in some cases it’s necessary to replace cabinets — a topic we will delve into in another article.
However, even when you are looking at painting your bathroom cabinets, you need to be mindful to avoid certain key mistakes and errors that will throw off your painting project as these will make the entire project that much worse — but knowing about them will make them that much easier to avoid.
Let’s have a look at some bathroom cabinet painting errors not to make
1. Trying To Paint With The Doors And Drawers Attached
One thing that’s going to be a bit of a mistake as you are painting your bathroom cabinets is the effort of trying to paint with the doors and drawers still attached.
The issue with trying to paint with your cabinet doors and drawers attached is twofold – one is that it is more difficult to reach certain parts of the cabinets when you have the doors and drawers attached, making for a more awkward painting experience.
The second is that the doors and drawers themselves are better painted when you have them detached from the cabinets.
2. Not Labeling The Doors And Drawers
Though we would of course like to think of the doors and drawers of the bathroom cabinets as being fundamentally interchangeable and being really all the same, this is not at all the case.
Indeed, the doors and drawers are different to some extent on a lot of cabinets and it’s best for you to put the same doors and drawers back from where you got them rather than take the possibility that somehow a door or drawer will not quite fit if you put it in a different spot.
The best thing you can do is to label each of them and to have a sort of plan for where each labeled part goes when you are putting them back after you have finished painting.
3. Not Checking For Mold
Since you are going to be painting your bathroom cabinets, you may presume that it’s not at all necessary to check for mold prior to painting your cabinets — after all, won’t painting just about cover everything?
This is of course not the case at all and you will find that if you don’t take steps to remove the mold from your cabinets before you paint them you will eventually see the same mold again, which is not only bad for your cabinets from an aesthetic point of view but bad for your health.
It’s quite important that you make every effort to entirely remove any trace of mold that you can from the cabinets so that you don’t find yourself facing that mold later on.
4. Not Using Mold Resistant Paint
As you are painting in the bathroom and you now know about the dangers of mold in there, you might wonder how you can possibly take measures to avoid getting mold in the bathroom.
One thing that you can do to ensure that you aren’t going to have mold is to make use of paint that is resistant to it — and of course, resistant doesn’t mean that you’re going to have a permanent magic shield that will forever protect you against it, though that would be nice.
You will still need to be vigilant to check for mold but at least your chances of finding it will be decreased, at least for a while.
