Bathroom Ceiling Painting With Less Mess In Unionville, PA
When you are taking a bath or shower or otherwise making use of your bathroom and you have a look up at your ceiling, you may wonder to yourself when it was the last time that you made the time to paint.
It’s sometimes the little things that put us off of a painting project, whether it be the cost involved with painting a part of a room, how long it is going to take, or the mess that we ultimately will make in the process of doing so.
However, what you should know is that there are things that you can do to prevent messes from occurring while you are painting your bathroom ceiling — or certainly the bigger messes.
Let’s have a look at some good tips for bathroom ceiling paint with less mess when you want a better looking bathroom ceiling.
1. Use Ceiling Paint
One of the more obvious things that you’re going to be able to do when you’re looking to paint the ceiling in the bathroom is to make use of paint especially made for ceilings.
This ceiling paint is so called because of how it better adheres to ceilings — as you can imagine, this thing we call gravity has a strong effect on paint and so when you are painting on a surface like a ceiling you can expect a fair amount of it to occur.
Nevertheless, one big mistake that people make when they’re painting their bathroom ceiling is to think that this means they don’t have to cover the floor — and as we shall discuss next, this is not at all the case.
2. Put The Right Kind Of Floor Protection Down
You may be well aware of the fact that when you apply paint to the floor, some of that paint will drip down and so it is important to have something on the floor so that you don’t get paint on it.
The question is what you will have there — will you cover your floor with some sort of tarp or a heavy drop cloth that will absorb paint and not allow the paint to get through?
Some will say that a tarp is a good solution but it’s possible that it may be a bit more dangerous as it will just allow to some extent paint to puddle up and make for a more dangerous environment.
However, remember that in any case, you want something that won’t shift around as you go from one place to another in the room as this might uncover the floor and remove the purpose of having the covering there.
3. Use A Ladder
It’s entirely possible that you’ve seen people working on scaffolding systems in order to apply paint to a ceiling and if you have looked at these magnificent systems and thought you could do it yourself with some bricks and a plank… just don’t.
In addition to being considerably more dangerous than a portable ladder as well as being a lot more difficult to get around the room, the precarious nature of the makeshift scaffolding system will make for a messier painting project.
It’s considerably better to make use of a ladder to get your brush and paint roller up to the ceiling so that you can uniformly apply the paint without worrying about your stability, especially if you have someone down below steadying your ladder.
4. Remove Furniture
Lastly, though there may not be all that much furniture in the bathroom to speak of you should still remove anything that you possibly can so that you eliminate stumbling blocks that could get you to spill paint.
Doing this will also make for a safer painting project.
