Painting kitchens and bathrooms
Before starting the renovation of these rooms, first of all, deal with the problem of accumulation and condensation of water vapor.
Good ventilation, e.g.. installing a lift, it will reduce the humidity in the room, and covering the walls and ceiling with a layer of emulsion (preferably with a slight sheen) it will facilitate their subsequent washing. You can already buy special emulsion paints mixed with an insulating substance to prevent condensation, in different colors.
We do not advise you to paint walls and ceilings with oil paint, as it intensifies the condensation process and accentuates any unevenness. Copper pipes can be painted with primer paint and covered with oil paint, without primer. Usually, oil paints can withstand temperatures of up to 90 ° C, with this, that white and pastel colors turn yellow at about 70 ° C. Pipes for hot and cold water can also be painted with corrosion-resistant and heat-resistant metallic paint.
Avoid water-diluted paints, because they most often soften and crack at high temperatures. Never paint the joints or nuts, in order not to hinder their possible unscrewing. If you want to paint over an existing layer of paint, it is enough to wash it and rub it with sandpaper to increase adhesion.
