If you’re looking to modernise your bathroom, we’ve got plenty of bathroom paint ideas and helpful advice right here.

When decorating your bathroom, it’s important that you choose the right colours and fixtures to create the ultimate relaxation zone.

Sometimes it’s not always easy to find the dream products you’re after. That’s why more people are choosing DIY solutions to re-energise their bathrooms. Using bathroom paint to renovate your space not only offers a more budget-friendly transformation, but it’s also a great way for homeowners to learn some helpful redecorating tips. Plus, you feel a real sense of fulfilment at the end.


First things first, clean the area

You want to make sure the area you’re going to use the bathroom paint on is clean and free from dirt. This could give your paint an unwanted lumpy or distorted look, so it’s crucial the area you’re working on is clear.

You’ll also need to ensure anything that isn’t going to be painted, but is close-by, is protected with masking tape. This will keep the faucets, shower and countertops out of the splash zone.


Prepare the paint

Maison Déco Bathroom Paint is a great option for your redecorating mission. The specially crafted formula creates a protective film over surfaces to ensure a high level of resistance to water and protection against sharp changes in temperature.

When opening the Maison Déco bathroom paint container, you’ll find a small tub attached to the lid. This contains the additives that are essential for activating the waterproofing and protective qualities of the paint. Go right ahead and pour the additives into the paint.

Next, set your timer and stir the paint for five minutes, working around the bottom of the container to ensure it’s thoroughly mixed. You’ll have 48 hours from this point onwards to use the paint before the protective qualities start to fade.

One of the best things about Maison Déco Bathroom Paint is its ease of application. Once you’ve mixed the paint properly, and cleaned your surfaces, you can start painting your bathroom tiles straight away.

Plain white tiles have the potential to look a little dated if a bathroom is lacking in features. Add some colour to your space with this gorgeous Maison Déco Sage paint. It’s gentle and warming, and is sure to inject a new lease of life into your bathroom.  If you’re ready to go even bolder, then Forest Green might be the one for you.

Top tip: If you want to freshen up tired grout with minimal hassle, opt for a grout pen. Your tiles will be left clean, protected and some grout pens even feature anti-bacterial agents to prevent mould.
