"A good extraction system.. is a start point …
However, mold resistant paint or plastic cladding in the ceiling is a better option than std. emulsion."

"Install adequate extraction. The reason you are experiencing mould on the ceiling is due to extraction and ventilation.
A humidity controlled extractor will go a long way to eradicating this problem"

"There are some really good paints for bathroom walls and ceilings, the big brands do them. However, no matter how much you spend in great paint mildew and mould can still form if the room is not well ventilated enough. Unless you’re lucky enough to have an openable window at either end of the room, then the best solution to this is an extractor fan. They are worth installing even if you have a window. So, as long as the surfaces in your bathroom do not absorb moisture, and as long as you give the opportunity for moisture from condensed steam to evaporate in a reasonable time, you will not get water damage. I hope this helps."
