Top Tip

Always work in shaded areas during the hottest part of the day. If you are applying in hot, windy conditions or on porous surfaces, thin the first coat by up to 10% with water.

Bathrooms

Are you looking to create a tranquil spa retreat or maybe you’d like to add drama and flair to impress house guests? Bathrooms offer a unique opportunity to create a dramatic impression in a functional space.

Which colours should I choose?

Soft greens and blue water colours are very popular with bathrooms. Neutrals are also a great colour choice for small rooms. Use accessories such as towels to add a splash of colour.

Painting your Bathroom: Hints and Tips

Preparation: Ensure walls and ceilings are clean and dry. If mould is present, clean surfaces with household bleach then rinse well with clean water.

Paint selection: Bathrooms are continually exposed to steam and moisture which could lead to the growth of mould and mildew on walls and ceilings if ventillation is poor. It is important to ensure that the source of any mould is not coming from the wall cavity.

Pascol Kitchen and Bathroom Semi Gloss Paint is ideal for wet areas. It is very moisture resistant and includes a powerful anti-microbial additive to protect against the growth of mould, mildew and fungus.

Use Pascol Kitchen and Bathroom Ceiling Paint in a subtle Eggshell finish. This Eggshell finish has a similar sheen to the shell of an egg and will be more durable than traditional flat ceiling paints as it is steam, moisture, mould, mildew and fungus resistant to provide a longer lasting finish.

These paints are low odour so they are more gentle on your senses and better for you and your home environment.
