More Bathroom Cabinet Painting Tricks To Learn in Unionville, PA
In looking to improve the look of your bathroom cabinets, you’re going to benefit from making the time to paint them — and paint them well.
We have in the past discussed some tricks you can learn for painting your bathroom cabinets, but it is time to revisit the subject and cover some more ground as it were.
Here are some more bathroom cabinet painting tricks to learn for better painted bathroom cabinets.
1. Search For Mold
You already know about how bad mold can be when it comes to painting anywhere in your bathroom, and you should know that this extends to your cabinets as well.
Before you start painting your cabinets, you should have a good look all around the room and try to find if there is any mold to be found in the bathroom area and if there is, to entirely remove it.
By making sure you’ve entirely eliminated all of the molds from your bathroom, you will see to it that you won’t find this mold on your bathroom cabinets (or at least delay any appearance of the mold for quite a while!)
2. Sand Before Painting
In looking to get a better set of bathroom cabinets, it’s a good idea to take steps to ensure that your surfaces are going to be optimally smooth and one important thing that you can do in order to get such a smooth surface is to gently sand all of the surfaces that are going to be painted.
Though the process of sanding your cabinets can sometimes be a bit on the time consuming side and it might seem like you’re not accomplishing much, what you are really doing is smoothing the surfaces, which makes it easier to ultimately apply paint to them and to get the paint to stay on.
You might want to go to the next level as it were and also gently sand in between coats of paint, but that is entirely up to you — some do find it to be beneficial, however.
3. Set Aside Hardware Carefully
When you are going to be painting your bathroom cabinets, one of the things you should do first is to remove the hardware from the cabinets — the pulls that are attached to the doors and drawers to facilitate opening them.
While you have them off, of course, you may want to think about if you want to stay with the same hardware or look to get different hardware — that’s always an option whether you go to a hardware store or even look in a place such as a thrift store to find used hardware that might not be so easily available.
However, it’s important that you take care in setting aside your hardware so that you do not lose track of where you have put them — it’s not exactly the easiest thing to replace and have it look like what you may have misplaced.
4. Test Colors In The Bathroom
There are quite a number of ways that you’ll be able to see how colors may or may not work in your bathroom, some being more helpful in getting you an accurate idea of how colors are ultimately going to look.
If you get a few small samples of the actual paint to be used, however, and apply them in some way on the bathroom cabinets before the whole process of painting begins, you will be able to see how these colors will really look in a number of different light settings.
If you find a color or two that you like, you will know that it is going to be an effective color based on having thoroughly tested it.
