What Type Of Paint Should You Use When Painting Your Bathroom?

Columbia Paint Bathroom Paint Types

Are you planning to remodel your home? It can be overwhelming, especially with the holiday season approaching. A quick solution to spruce up your bathroom is to paint it. It can be finished in a weekend or less. But remember that bathrooms are often humid and can damage your work quickly. Regardless of your style, follow these tips to ensure your efforts are worth it.

Oil Or Latex? 

Water-based latex paints are an excellent choice for a bathroom as they can withstand wet conditions effectively. Although oil paint is highly durable, it requires mineral spirits for cleaning, which takes a long time to dry and emits harmful VOCs, causing health issues. Also, oil paint can turn yellow in unfavorable lighting conditions. Therefore, if you want to avoid these problems, it’s better to choose washable latex paints that are easy to clean and won’t cause any health hazards.

What Type Of Finish Should You Use 

After applying new layers, the next step is selecting a finish to protect them. Adding a finish is essential as it gives a shine, seals the color, and extends the life of the paint. It also makes the walls more resilient to mold and mildew growth. Choosing a semi-gloss or glossy finish that repels moisture infiltration is best. Although you may not immediately notice the molecular bond of the paint, it reduces moisture and speeds up the evaporation process. The most critical part of maintaining a bathroom is keeping it clean.

Think About Changing The Appearance Of The Ceiling 

When renovating a bathroom, it’s important to protect the ceiling from potential steam damage by painting it correctly. For optimal outcomes, you should select a satin or semi-gloss finish.
