Choosing and Preserving Your Bathroom’s Paint

Bathrooms have skyrocketed in importance and popularity in recent years. In fact, it’s now said that the two primary interior selling points of a home are the bathroom and kitchen! With this in mind, it’s no wonder that many homeowners are finding a fresh interest in investing in this particular space and making it all it can be.

But aside from a practical investment standpoint, custom bathrooms are also something of a personal oasis. No longer just a utilitarian room, they now are seen as both a canvas for showcasing style as well as a place to simply wash (or soak!) away your cares. It’s a retreat, and the stresses of the world simply have to wait outside the door for a while.

A wonderful place to start in this effort to make your bathroom completely your own is by choosing beautiful, fresh interior paint. Before you do, however, there are a few things that are important to keep in mind.

What Kind of Bathroom Paint Do You Need?

The answer to this question depends largely on the function of your space. For example, if yours is a high-traffic hub for a busy family, you will want to use a durable, semi-gloss paint. High-gloss is even tougher, but it also is very unforgiving; any imperfections stand out clearly.

Is your bathroom a full or half-bath? If it’s a half-bath, you more than likely will not need a specialized paint. If it’s a full bath, and especially if you like to take steamy showers, it could be worthwhile to invest in a specific formula that inhibits the growth of mold and mildew.

Tips for Preserving and Showcasing Your Paint

A lot is asked of your bathroom paint! Repeated exposure to steam, scrubbing, and drying takes its toll. To help combat these factors, be sure that you have a quality fan in place. This kind of ventilation and air exchange allows the space to breathe, both inhibiting the potential for mold issues as well as keeping your walls fresh and dry.

Bright, even lighting not only makes flossing easier, but it also will help to really show off your bathroom’s paint and design. This is especially important because of the number of fixtures, furniture, and other elements that cast shadows and can create the illusion of uneven spots or differing tones.
