Your linen closet is an important part of your home, and if you have the same old linen closet that you had when you purchased or constructed it, it’s entirely possible that it will be in dire need of a new paint job.
It’s well worth noting that there are ways that you can improve the way that you paint your linen closet, if it happens that you choose that route for improving the closet, and if you make the time to learn about these you will have a better painted linen closet.
One thing you need to remember when you’re looking to paint your linen closet is that you should make use of the right kind of paint.
There are of course quite a lot of different kinds of paint that you can use in your linen closet and while some of them would work perfectly fine, you should know that some might just be a waste of money and not at all necessary for the kind of work that you’re going to be doing.
A linen closet, being primarily a place where you put your clean linens, is not typically the kind of area where you will have to be regularly cleaning the painted surfaces.
It, therefore, is not as necessary to make use of a glossy paint as you would in a room where stains sometimes will find their way onto the wall – you can actually use a flatter paint to give the linen closet a distinct and fresh look.
Something that people might not realize about painting their linen closet is that it’s not actually necessary to paint it white – and yes, we are well aware of the fact that white also is a color.
What we mean by your being able to use color is that you are free to make use of other colors, colors other than white to paint your linen closet.
Doing so will give a nice new life to your linen closet and can really spruce it up so to speak, which can be a pleasant thing when you’re working with a linen closet.
You may already be aware of the importance of sanding the surface that is being painted prior to painting, but did you know that the cleaning should take place after the sanding.
This is because the very process of sanding any given surface is going to give off a good amount of sanding dust and if you don’t make sure to clean off the sanding dust after you have finished sanding, you’re pretty much guaranteeing that you will later see that very same dust back in your linen closet on the surface that you have painted.
Clean the surfaces after you sand and then of course be sure to allow time to pass for said surfaces to dry.
Speaking of colors, you may think that you are going to be just limited to one color selection and that will be it – but that’s not the case.
In terms of color selection for your linen closet, you’re actually going to be able to use a couple of different colors if you’d like, and the key thing to bear in mind is that the two colors should look good together… and you will know fairly quickly if the colors look good together.
Since it’s going to be your linen closet ultimately, it doesn’t matter if these colors are trendy or stylish so long as you are happy with them.
