The passage of time can outdate the tiles of your bathroom. What used to look sleek and modern now seems stained and chipped. This is normal, as humid rooms are subject to flaws and imperfections over time. Luckily, there is a way to upgrade the look of your bathroom without spending too much. If you want a smart, cost-effective, and durable way of sprucing your bathroom up, you should consider tile resurfacing.
Should You Hire a Professional Company?
Painting bathroom tiles can be a tricky task, so it’s important to decide if you want to do it yourself or hire a professional company. While it might seem like an easy job, it’s not as simple as spraying some paint. You might find that it’s more efficient to do the work yourself, saving on costs, but keep in mind that a professional will be able to get better results. At Specialized Refinishing, we have access to high-quality materials and know exactly how to get the best outcome.
We have been working for more than twenty-eight years with the most qualified and trained workers out there. As a matter of fact, our clients can’t even tell the difference between a newly installed bathroom and one which has been refinished.
Before deciding what’s best for your needs, consider whether doing it yourself is really worth it or if it would be better to hire professionals who can do a more effective job. It may seem like an extra expense, but in the long run, your bathroom will look better.
How to Paint Your Tiles
It isn’t difficult to learn how to paint bathroom wall tiles yourself. However, a professional company is skilled and will guide you through the process with expertise. In refinishing and restoration projects, safety and precaution are critical. First, wear gloves and protect the working area with plastic. Mistakes happen, and you don’t want paint spilling or smattering in other areas. Mark the area out to avoid this.
Here are additional tips for painting your tiles:
- Start by thoroughly cleaning your wall with soap and water. Remove all dust and dirt.
- Make sure any areas that need to be repaired are properly filled and sanded down.
- Apply a bonding agent for better adherence and allow time for it to completely dry before painting.
- Once you have chosen the paint, let it catalyze for at least thirty minutes before you start to paint.
- Once the bonding agent is dry, use a small brush to cut in at corners and then use the roller for larger areas.
- For best results, apply two or three coats of paint, allowing each layer to dry before applying the next one.
- For extra protection from moisture, apply an acrylic sealer once everything is dried completely.
Preparing your surface before you start painting makes all the difference in the end result. If tackling this job yourself is too time-consuming, contact Specialized Refinishing CO. We offer to refinish and recoloring services for all types of surfaces, including metal, plastic, ceramic, fiberglass, and more.
How to Choose Your Paint
The type of paint you choose for your tiled walls is essential for a clean finish. Choose a paint that adheres to tiles and is resistant to moisture. Bathrooms typically become humid quickly, which can cause paint to wrinkle and crack.
We recommend opting for oil-based paint, because it easily adheres to the tile surface, is highly durable, and is easy to clean. Next, use an undercoat to strengthen your paint’s cohesion. For example, bonding agents will act as an adhesive between the surface and the paint. That will make the paint last longer. Our store location offers a wide selection of paints and options for undercoats.
If you’re unsure of what type of paint you should choose, ask one of our experts for advice. Working with professionals ensures the project goes smoothly and your results are exactly what you wanted.
It doesn’t matter what your needs are, at Specialized Refinishing, we know how to revamp any surface or space. Our experience has taught us that every project has to be tackled with care. If you want to give your bathroom a whole new look, don’t hesitate to contact us!
