Critical Tips for Painting Your Bathroom Walls

Critical Tips for Painting Your Bathroom Walls

The bathroom has taken on a variety of new roles in the modern home. The contemporary bathroom has become a palace to relax, recharge, and rehydrate rather than being a place where we simply get ourselves clean. 


Of course, none of those aspects of the bathroom have meant that your approach to your bathroom walls should ever change. Bathrooms are arguably the most common area in the home that’s going to encounter issues with moisture. If you’re unaware, water should be nowhere near the inner workings of your walls, causing untold damage to your home over time.

Thankfully, most of the work to protect your walls from excess moisture in the bathroom can be done during the painting phase.

So read on, and discover the best ways to make your bathroom walls safe and secure.


1. It’s All in the Preparation

Arguably, the most important step in painting your walls is before you paint. Once the paint goes on, there’s no going back. As a result, make sure you’ve got your wall in tip-top shape before you get started. 


Regardless of whether you have drywall, cement, plaster, those cracks are only going to create more problems the longer they’re left alone. So, take the time to fill those gaps and holes with a wall mending agent that can bring your walls back to their best. 


With that in mind, make sure your wall mending agent is waterproof as well, as this will save you a lot of heartbreak in the future. SafeMends wall mending agent is a great option, being non-toxic and waterproof, making it perfect for any bathroom project. 

2. Covering Up

Any gaps in your setup will make it easier for excess moisture from steam to leak into your walls, and those leaks can potentially happen through your fixtures as well! 


To avoid unnecessary gaps forming in your bathroom from the connection between the fixture and the wall, be sure to cover your fixture thoroughly. This will help stop paint from overflowing onto your fixtures and creating pockets of cracked, dry paint in the process. 


Remember, prevention is always better than repairing after the fact, so it pays to be thorough!

3. Mold Free

Finally, it’s crucial to make sure you’re choosing the right paint for the situation. 


Excess moisture in the bathroom can cause bacteria to form mold over time. This will usually happen in the corners and high spots of your bathroom, where cleaning is the most difficult. Even worse, given enough time without sufficient management, the mold will soon create health problems for you and your family as the spores release with added moisture. 


Choosing a mold-resistant, toxin-free paint can be the difference between mold forming or not forming in your home. 

Extra Tip: To avoid moisture forming as much as possible, it’s best to see if you can install an extractor fan in your bathroom. This will pull the steam from showers and baths away from the room and ventilate the area in the process, reducing the overall moisture in the bathroom in the process.
