Four Tips for Bathroom Painting

Bathroom Painting TipsWhen it comes time to repaint or remodel your bathroom, you need to understand that it’s not like all the other rooms in your home.  In most cases when you begin to paint your home, you CAN paint from one room to another using the same type of paint, maybe different colors though.  But, when it comes to the bathroom, you need to understand that when you come to the bathroom door, this is a place where you will definitely want to switch it up and change gears.  There are a few reasons for this.  First off, the bathroom is a moisture intensive room.  Therefore not just any paint is going to do.  Secondly, if you are painting a bathroom that has never been painted before, you WILL have issues with the paint sticking to the walls.  Lastly, since bathrooms tend to be the smaller rooms in the house, color options definitely do matter.  If you paint it too light, it looks stark.  Paint it too dark and it seems like a boxed in space.  If you want to paint the bathroom right, and do so the first time around, continue reading below on tips for bathroom painting, including a section on why hiring an interior painter in Winnipeg may be your best option.

Types of Interior Paint

Tools for Painting

Types of painting supplies

When preparing to do an interior painting project, it can seem like there are too many different types of paints from which to choose. For the most part, there are really only two basic types of paint as interior paint is typically either water based or oil based. The area of the house that is being painted is one of the biggest influencing factors that determine which type of paint is best for that particular room. When considering interior painting in the kitchen, Winnipeg homeowners will want something that is durable but very easy to clean or keep clean; but for painting the living room they may want a totally different type of finish or paint as it is not as likely to become as dirty as other areas of the home.

There are three basic paints that are used for interior painting projects. Each one has its own set of advantages and disadvantages and may be suitable for one area and not another. Read More

“Elasto what?”

Elasto Paint

Moisture Trapped Behind Elastomeric Paint

One of the most common questions I get asked is “What about that Elasto paint isn’t it supposed to be the best paint for stucco.”
