In this opportunity, we will discuss about the bathroom paint. Compared to the other room in a house, bathrooms tend to be more special. This is because the flow of hot water and steam that makes the bathroom more humid than other rooms. It requires a special wall coating that can strengthen the layers of the wall, although constantly exposed to moisture, or even water.
Bathroom walls are generally closed partially, or entirely with ceramic tile. Actually, there are several other alternatives such as the use of natural stone, exposed concrete, ceramic tiles and paint combine, slab wood and paint, and wallpaper.
If you are interested to cover the bathroom wall partially, or entirely with paint, here are some things you should consider to prevent the paint from peeling.
Sufficient air ventilation
Make sure your bathroom has adequate ventilation. Without ventilation, high humidity can damage the paint in the bathroom. You can make a window that can be opened, or use an exhaust fan. In addition to keeping the paint in the kitchen, exhaust fan can also reduce vapor, the dew in the bathroom mirror, and dry wall. The exhaust fan for about an hour after you take a bath.
Install gypsum neatly
You can use gypsum as a coating bath, especially if the concept of “dry bath”. Two things should be noted: First, use a moisture-resistant gypsum board is relatively stronger than regular gypsum board. Second, make sure the installation is correct. Do not let the sanding process leaving different textures. Ask finishing level 5 to get the best results.
Refine the gypsum corner
If you are using gypsum cover, make sure the bathroom has a perfect angle. Use pro corner bead to create the perfect angle.
Use durable paint
If you decide to repaint all or part of the bathroom wall, make sure the good quality paint is durable for the specific locations. These include the area around the window, or other surface that is often used as a “storage rack”.
Provide good lighting
Lastly, make sure you give natural and artificial lighting sufficient in the bathroom. Lighting plays an important role in the appearance of the bathroom. If the sun dominates the lighting, you should check out how the sunshine all day. Although it is good to have a lot of natural light into the bathroom, but it can also be confirmed painting mistakes in it. Moreover, if you choose the shiny paint (glossy).
Hopefully you can make the bathroom paint in your house more durable.
