This “How To” article is easier than wallpaper removal or popcorn removal. We are going to learn how to paint a bathroom. When painting a bathroom, the most important decision is what type of paint to use.
Bathrooms are unique rooms because they are high traffic and wet conditions. The paint in bathrooms must be durable enough to withstand the traffic, but also water-resistant to stand up against steam from showers. The simplest measure of determining durability of interior paints is sheen. The higher the sheen, the more durable the coating.
In the old days, satin was the “go to” finish for baths. Satin has lower sheen than semi-gloss but is more durable than flats. With the advance in coating technologies, manufacturers have developed “washable flats” and matte finishes. Washable flats and matte finishes have an angular sheen closer to a flat with durability that surpasses semi-gloss. These finishes are typically reserved for premium quality lines of paint. All major manufacturers have this finish as part of their product line.
Matte finish paints apply the same way as other those with other sheens. Due to the high quality nature of these paints, they usually apply better than other paints. Many have exceptional hide and are self priming. GreenWave Solutions uses Sherwin Williams’ premium lines Duration Home and Emerald.
After you have chosen which paint you are going to use, it’s time to start painting.
