What are the best paints to use in my kitchen and bathroom?

Due to the high levels of humidity and condensation that both kitchens and bathrooms are subjected to, they become prone to paint cracking, peeling and mildew. In order to avoid these problems, painting with a gloss paint is recommended. A gloss paint has a higher sheen value, meaning it provides a harder finish that proves more moisture resistant. Along with this, a gloss finish is also very washable and scrubbable.

How can I safely dispose of any leftover paint that I may have?

If you have any leftover paint, thinner or other chemicals, they should never be poured down the drain or otherwise disposed of carelessly. Leftover paint in usable condition can be donated to churches, schools or other organizations. To determine if old paint is still usable, stir it with a paint stick and if the paint is smooth, it is still good! Empty cans or those with a small amount of water-based paint in them should be left open and allowed to dry in a ventilated area, out of the reach of children and pets. Cans with dried paint may be discarded with household trash. Leftover paint can become dangerous if not disposed of correctly.

Are there any tricks to painting windows, doors, and trim?

Generally, use more delicate strokes with less paint on the brush when painting any kind of trim or details. Windows Mask off the glass panes. Use a small trim brush to paint the dividers from top to bottom. Paint the window surround areas next. Then use an angled trim brush to paint the face trim around the window. Siding Trim Paint trim from the top down. Use the largest brush that fits the trim you’re painting. Take care that paint doesn’t “glob” or drip as you work in crevices and joints. Doors If the door has raised inset panels, paint those first. Then paint the door surface surrounding the panels.
