If you’re looking for some quick and easy bathroom updates that will help you modernize, refresh, and brighten your space, you have plenty of options. You can select new fixtures; change out your accessories like bath mats, shower curtains, and towels; or add new lighting. One of the most popular, and quite frankly fun updates, is changing the paint colors in the bathroom. Read on for tips and tricks for selecting the ideal paint color for your space, and learn how you can paint more than just your bathroom walls.
Updating the color of your bathroom with a little primer and paint can really elevate your space from drab to fab. Hiring a professional to paint your space is important, because you want the job done correctly with the right materials. Your contractor and designer will choose high-quality paints that eliminate streaks and brush marks, and will help to cover any imperfections on your walls. Your painter will fill any holes or cracks in your wall, use putty to repair damaged woodwork, and clean the walls before applying any paint. All of this prep work, while tedious, ensures you have clean lines and quality, lasting color when the job is all said and done.
Determine if you want a light color to make your bathroom seem large and spacious, or a darker color that draws you into the space and makes everything feel cozy. Selecting the right finish for your new bathroom paint is just as important as the color itself, because the bathroom is one of the most high-traffic areas of our homes, and is subject to humidity, water, grime, and dust. Our bathroom walls even suffer the exposure of our daily beauty routines, as they are often hit with perfume, hairspray, toothpaste, and soap. Satin and eggshell finishes are low on shine and ideal for walls. Wooden furniture, cabinets, and moldings are enhanced by semigloss paint; ceilings and textured or imperfect walls benefit from flat finishes.
Painting your walls is one of the most affordable and quick bathroom updates for homeowners, but don’t forget about the rest of your bathroom surfaces! If you are tight on remodeling funds or you like the existing cabinetry in your bathroom, painting is a great way to make your vanity look like new. You can even paint the existing tile in your shower and your backsplash with specialty paint that will refresh the color and clean the grout lines simultaneously.
