Ways To Paint Bathroom Floors
If you’re looking for a quick update to your existing bathroom, you might consider painting the floor. Here are instructions for you. Sanding roughs up the surface of the bathroom floor to help the primer adhere to it. This may be necessary if you are painting a shiny ceramic tile floor. Use a hand sander and 120-grit to 180-grit sandpaper to take the shine off of the tiles. Use a sanding clock on peel and stick tiles or linoleum. Start at the point that is farthest from the door and work your way out. Sweep the floor to remove the majority of the sanding dust, and then go over it again with a tack cloth to ensure the primer goes on smoothly.Cover the floor with a thin coat of epoxy primer formulated specifically for the type of floor you are painting. Use an edging brush to cover the areas around the toilet, sink, tub and/or shower. Use a paintbrush or a roller to fill in the rest of the floor. Start with a clean edging brush and paint that is specifically formulated for the type of floor that you are painting. Make sure that the primer and paint you choose are compatible with each other. Edge around the fixtures with an angled brush.
Since water is in issue in a bathroom, it is a good idea to seal the floor with a waterproof sealer. The clear, water-based urethanes like those made for boats are excellent for this, but read the label to make sure the sealer will be compatible for your paint and that it will dry clear. Apply the sealer with a brush or with a long-handled roller. Let it dry overnight or for however long the manufacturer recommends.
