Unlike other rooms, the bathroom walls require special treatment. This area is susceptible to hot water or steam which will make it damp. If you want to cover the wall area of the bathroom with paint, you need to pay attention to several things, especially about the selection of paint. Wear paint that is designed for damp rooms. Because usually a damp place is ideal for fungi, mosses, or bacteria to breed.
Also make sure the paint you choose contains antibacterial and antifungal. Use paint that is not easily peeled off and resistant to water. On the market, the price is indeed higher than ordinary paint. However, the results are more satisfying. The size of the bathroom space is usually limited. Therefore, choose light-colored paint. This will create a broader impression. Bright colors do not mean you can only create white. Colors that look light, cool, and bright can also be obtained from light blue, yellow, or light green.
Of course you can beautify the bathroom walls by partially covering them using ceramics, exposed concrete, or natural stones. Besides being more waterproof, these materials will make the appearance of the bathroom more aesthetic. The durability of the bathroom walls is also determined by how you manage other components in the bathroom, such as air circulation and lighting. The better the air circulation, the lower the humidity in the bathroom.
Make sure the bathroom has adequate ventilation. In addition to making a narrow ventilation hole, you can make a window that can be opened or used by the exhaust fan. If you use an exhaust fan, turn it on not only when you are in the bathroom, but also for about an hour after you finish showering. This can reduce steam and moisture in the bathroom glass. Adjust the lighting so that the bathroom always gets light. Natural lighting is actually better. In addition to making the bathroom brighter, heat in the light is also able to reduce the humidity of the bathroom.
Noteworthy, if your bathroom gets enough natural light, don’t let too many glossy elements in the bathroom, such as glass or glossy paint. Visually, too much luster makes the appearance of the bathroom less neat. With good planning, the bathroom becomes more beautiful and durable. You also avoid the problem of often repainting or renovating bathrooms.
