Bathroom Cabinet Painting With Less Mess In St. Louis, MO

There are few things that are quite as messy as painting the interior of your home, and to some extent, this extends to painting your bathroom cabinets as well.

What you may not realize is that there are things that you can do to reduce the mess and by following a couple of simple tricks you can make for a less messy painting project.

Let’s have a look at some of these tips for bathroom painting with less mess that will make for a better painting project.

1. Plan Out Your Painting Project

One aspect of painting that is going to help you to have less mess in your painting project is to plan it out in advance.

By doing this, you’re going to have a good idea of how much painting there is to be done — you will have measured out your walls and thus get a sense of how long the whole project is going to take and be able to plan out your breaks, time-wise.

It’s something that people often skip doing and then regret missing as their projects take significantly longer without a good sense of planning.

2. Lay Down Drop Cloth On The Floor

A relatively simple way that you can avoid the mess in your painting is to put down some drop cloth on the floor near the areas where you are going to be painting.

It’s key that this drop cloth be the type that will not let paint get through, because otherwise, you’re just putting down a useless cloth on the floor.

Ideally, you’re also going to be making use of a drop cloth that’s heavy enough that it doesn’t easily move around while you walk as this would uncover the floor and let paint get to it.

3. Paint More Slowly

One reason that messes get made while you are painting is that people will sometimes just paint too quickly, and paint will quite literally fly everywhere.

This is not only a bit messy in terms of painting but will be a waste of the paint that people sometimes don’t realize is one of the more costly aspects of any painting project.

By painting more slowly you will more carefully apply the paint to the surfaces that you are painting, leading to an overall better look for the cabinets and less mess for your project.

4. Use Primer Before Paint

If you use primer as a coat before you apply your first coat of paint, you will find that the overall project goes a lot more smoothly and is free of mess.

The reason that this is the case is that the surface will be more smooth and as such the paint will go on it more easily.

With this being true, you will have a better painting project in other ways as well as primer helps your paint to stay on the surface for a longer time.

5. Remove the Hardware

Lastly, you should remember that when you are painting cabinets that there is no good reason to leave the hardware on.

You may try to convince yourself that you can save time while you are painting by leaving on the hardware but the time that you spend getting the cabinets ready so that you don’t get paint on the hardware will more than take over how much time you save by not having to remove the hardware.

Moreover, you will have a good opportunity to consider whether you want to change up the hardware on your cabinets — and sometimes a change of hardware can be a good improvement!
