When you are looking to paint your bathroom to make it look better, you might start to realize that the overall task of painting your ceiling is one that could take a long period of time – but this doesn’t have to be the case.
There are certain things that you can do in order to make your painting project take less time — and the good news is that they will keep your ceiling looking good and even keep the painting project on or under your budget.
With that being the case, let’s have a look at some tips for bathroom ceiling painting in a timely manner that will keep your bathroom ceiling looking good.
1. Start Early To Get Better Daylight
One thing that you’re going to want to do in order to get your bathroom ceiling painted in a more timely manner is to start painting early, in order to get better daylight during your painting time.
The thing about painting your ceiling is that when you are making use of daylight, you are going to be able to paint more effectively since daylight painting makes for better visibility of your ceiling than having the light on in your room.
Start your painting earlier on and do better while you are painting — and get it done sooner.
2. Use Quick Drying Paint
Though you may want to use other paints, if you are specifically looking for a painting experience that is faster it would be a good idea for you to look for one that is quick drying as far as properties go.
The good thing that you should know is that because of the quick dry quality of this paint, you are going to be saving a significant amount of time in the painting process.
Though it may cost you a bit more money upfront, it may be worth spending the extra money since you will be cutting down on how long it will take you to paint the bathroom ceiling.
3. Use An Extension Pole To Reduce Arm Fatigue
If you are familiar with the room in which you are painting, you are no doubt aware that the ceiling is a good distance away from you and so when you are painting the ceiling, you may come to overextend your reach in order to get to it.
However, what you might want to know is that if you make use of a good length extension pole, you will have less arm fatigue and thus over time you will have less of an issue getting the ceiling painted in a timely manner.
Be aware that if you use too long of an extension pole, you will have a different kind of issue in that the weight of the base of the extension pole will be greater, making it more challenging to handle and thus move around the room… which of course means that it’s going to take longer to paint.
4. Wait An Appropriate Amount Of Time For Surfaces To Dry
Sometimes you will look up at the ceiling that you have just given a coat of primer to and think that you might not have to wait long at all to apply the first coat of paint — after all, what is the worst thing that will happen if you apply paint to a ceiling that has a not yet fully dry coat of primer?
The answer to this is that there are a lot of bad things that can happen if you do not allow time to pass for your primer coat to dry, starting with the possibility that some of your primer coat will come off onto your paintbrush, causing your prime and paint to mix together rather than being separate coats as they should be.
This is bad, as the paint is meant to be applied after the primer has fully dried so that it can properly adhere to the primer.
5. Use A Grid Pattern For Time Efficiency
Lastly, you should think about the pattern in which you are painting and how this will help you to save time for your painting project.
If you are not sure what the significance of a painting pattern is and why it will help you with making your painting project more time efficient, think about how you apply paint to a large surface.
You surely have some idea of how you want to cover the surface, but if you break up the surface into a collection of
patterns that evenly divides it, you will find that your painting project will be completed much more quickly.
