If you have a freestanding bath that you’re not happy with, you may want to consider painting it. Rather than immediately rushing out and buying a brand new bath, a lot of homeowners boost it with a lick of paint. Painting a freestanding bath is a fantastic way to improve its appearance, as well as changing the style and colour of it entirely. Here’s our quick guide on how to paint a freestanding bath:
Step 1: Using a fine abrasive paper, rub down the surface of the bath. This will ensure that you have a smooth area to work on. Once the entire bath has been rubbed down, remove all dust.
Step 2: Once you have chosen your paint, it’s time to get started. Using a clean paintbrush, begin to apply the paint to the bath smoothly and evenly; try to keep the application random and in a range of directions as this will help to ensure even coverage. You may find that you’ll need two top coats to give an even colour. We recommend using a small brush or roller brush, as this allows you to apply the paint without creating lines.
Step 3: To finish, we recommend that you apply a coat of water or oil based matte varnish. This will add a layer of protection to the bath, though it isn’t essential.
Even if you don’t have a lot of experience with bathroom DIY, you shouldn’t struggle too much with painting a freestanding bath. In fact, most people find it to be an easy enough task.
