When prepping for a remodel the first thing step should be to remove all old wall coverings including borders and wall paper. This is most easily achieved through the use of a heat/steam gun. This will warm the glue on the paper allowing it to be easily removed. When we prep the wall for painting we will first make sure it is smooth by looking for any pits or marred areas. These will be filled with spackle in order to bring them up level with the rest of the wall.
When you are considering a new color of paint for your home and bath remodel you should take into consideration how long you will continue living in the home. If you plan on being in the same home for seven or more years, then any color that suits you would be acceptable. If you plan on placing your home on the real estate market however you will want to choose neutral shades in order to help keep it much more market friendly.
Since older walls tend to show dirt and age quite readily a good painting is always recommended before placing your home up for sale. When prospective buyers walk into a home they do not want to see a great deal of work that they will have to do. Also, do not take the shortcut of simply painting over stains, grease, and grime. These will begin to show through the new paint job and could lead to your having to pay for a professional painter to come in and fix the issue.
