Bath Painting


Bath Painting

One of the available ways to visually renew the bath and extend its service life is to paint it. Epoxy enamel is used for the painting, which helps to give the old coating a white and luster appearance.

Bath repair


The appearance of the bath is largely responsible for the coziness, feeling of cleanliness and hygiene in the bathroom. If it looks dull, gray, darkened by time or covered with rusty spots, then most likely, the overall impression of being in the bathroom will not be so pleasant. Snow-white shiny surfaces give us the idea of hygienic cleanliness and give the interior of the bathroom freshness and relevance, even if the decoration in it is not the newest.

Bath Painting

Despite the fact that plumbing stores are filled with all sorts of modern acrylic baths, many bathrooms still have the cast-iron baths of the Soviet period, and there are good reasons for this. The performance of cast iron is ideal for a comfortable bath usage in that it retains the heat of water for a long time and absorbs its noise. It is also stable due to its large mass, and it is strong and durable. The reliability of cast-iron baths can be judged by the long decades of their usage. They could have served for many more decades, if not for the main drawback which is their fragile, vulnerable enamel. Covered with cracks, spots, chipping, peeling and other external defects, it becomes not only unaesthetic, but also unhygienic, because when the surface has lost the integrity of the coating, it becomes more difficult to keep clean.

If the cast-iron bath has served its time, it is still not worth rushing to replace it. Buying and fixing a new bath will entail additional difficulties and costs associated with the finishing works in the bathroom. You can avoid this by ordering a bath repair service.

Advantages of Painting a Bath

Epoxy enamel is an affordable and well-known material, which can give the surface of the bath the whiteness and gloss of a new bath.

  • Enamel is cheap, so painting the bath will not make a hole in the family budget. In comparison with other materials, this one is the most affordable among those that are designed for repairing the bath.

  • Enamel is not difficult to use, and you can handle painting yourself, even if you don't have any special skills. This is especially important when the repair budget is severely limited.

  • After painting the bath with epoxy enamel, it becomes shiny and white.

  • In order to paint the bath with enamel, dismantling is not required. This saves time which significantly simplifies the entire process and avoids the finishing works, the need for which arises in the case of replacing the bath.

Painting The Bath With Enamel: Step by Step Process

The entire process of renewing the bath by painting can be divided into three stages: surface preparation, enamel application and drying of the material.

  1. Initially, it is necessary to disconnect the bath from the water system, remove the faucet and accessories of the drain and overflow, so as not to stain them with paint and apply the material efficiently everywhere.
  2. The old enamel layer is evenly removed from the surface with sandpaper. This is necessary in order, to clean up areas with cracks, chips and dirt that have penetrated deep, as well as for a good adhesion of paint to the bath surface.
  3. The resulting dust is cleaned off the uniformly treated surface, which is then thoroughly washed, dried and degreased. No particles of removed enamel should remain on the surface, otherwise the quality of the painting will be poor.
  4. Before the work is started, the epoxy enamel is thoroughly mixed until it is homogenous, then it is applied to the surface. To paint the bath, brushes or rollers are used, but certainly made of high quality. They should not leave stripes, bald spots and adhered pile on the painted surface.
  5. Bath staining involves applying enamel in several layers. Usually, 3 or 4 layers are sufficient, with an interval of 15-20 minutes after each one. After the painting, the bath is left until the enamel is completely dry.
  6. When the material is completely dry, it can be connected to the water system and the drains and faucet can be fixed. Before the first use, the bath should be washed without the use of abrasives and aggressive chemicals. Ordinary soap applied to a soft sponge will do.

Disadvantages of Painting The Bath With Enamel

Painting the bath with epoxy enamel is a method that has gradually been replaced by other, more modern materials and methods of bath restoration. Some resort to it, not knowing about all the disadvantages of enamel:

  • Epoxy enamel is absolutely not the same as powder enamel, which is applied to cast iron in industrial conditions. In fact, it is the same paint, but more dense, thick and designed for surface operation in conditions of constant humidity. The enamel layer is thin, unreliable and short-lived.
  • Painting a bath, although it can improve its appearance, can still not be used to create a truly perfect surface. Epoxy enamel will not make the bath perfectly smooth and will not give a noble glossy shine. Painting is not suitable for repairing baths with serious and deep damage, because this material is not suitable for leveling the surface, and can only emphasise the unnecessary relief.
  • Epoxy enamel is short-lived. Its gloss and whiteness are preserved for a period of not more than one year even with careful use. After that, the bath will again require repainting.
  • Taking care of the bathroom after painting it is quite difficult. It needs to be washed quite often so that the enamel does not darken and does not absorb dirt. Since you cannot use powders and chemicals with an aggressive composition, you will have to put a lot of effort to ensure that the surface remains clean.
  • Due to the short service life of epoxy enamel, even the low price of this material does not make this method profitable. The need to re-paint the bath after a short period of time makes it extremely costly.
  • Painting the bath takes a lot of time, because the material needs to be applied in several layers. In addition, the epoxy enamel dries for a long time. In order for the bathroom to be used, it must take at least 6-7 days from the moment of painting.
  • When working with enamel, the specialist needs a respirator, because the material has a pronounced chemical smell and can be dangerous if its vapors are inhaled for a long time. The apartment should be well ventilated until the enamel is completely dry.
  • The brittle material is quickly covered with a network of cracks, even from a minor impact. Metal buckets and basins should not be placed in a bath painted with enamel because bumps and scratches are caused by it. Because of the porosity of the enamel, dirt, rust and hard water quickly penetrate into its structure which causes the surface to become rough, unpleasant to the touch and uneven in color.
  • Painting the bath after use

    Painting the bath after use

Painting the bath with epoxy enamel is an affordable, but rather mediocre method of refinishing the bath, which is gradually becoming a thing of the past. You can resort to it only in cases when the appearance of the bath needs to be renewed at the lowest cost and not for yourself, but for the sale of an apartment or renting it out.

Liquid Acrylic Is an Alternative To Painting a Bath

An alternative to painting the bath with epoxy enamel is to refinish its surface with liquid acrylic. This is a modern material, ideal for operation and maintenance. With it, you can create a new surface that will last for at least 15 years, and stays white, smooth and shiny throughout the entire period.

Having an impressive service life, liquid acrylic is quite affordable in price, which makes it the most profitable material for repairing baths to date. Unlike enamel, it is resistant to impacts, it does not crack and does not flake off. Working with liquid acrylic requires professional skills, but our specialist copes with it quickly. In comparison with the epoxy enamel, which dries within a week, the bath refinished with liquid acrylic is ready for use after a day.
