    "You can get pacific paint for bathrooms so that the moisture doesn’t sit on top of the paint and cause damp I would also avoid Matt if you are using just normal paint, silk would be better 👍🏻"

    "Hi Adam, yes the paints to use in a bathroom is bathroom paint or silk. On certain times eggshell can be used. If the bathroom has bad ventilation stay away from a general Matt paint.

    "Hi. Ideally a paint with a mildew-resistant additive. I would say flat or eggshell type paints are not ideal as they absorb moisture and are difficult to wipe."
