Bathroom painting, need info about dfferent paint


I filled in paneling in a bathroom and then painted it with primer and semi-gloss, it had flashing here and there. I resanded, touched up with joint compound. I was thinking of going with a flat washable paint in the bathroom or something other than semi-gloss? Do you always use semi-gloss in a bathroom? I really need to know this before I do anything else in that room.HELP! LOL

No, either one of these or any Kitchen and Bath product from a real paint store will work fine. Just noticed that the SW is in Semi gloss so forget that one

The only paint I would NOT use in a bathroom is FLAT. Flat tends to "crackle" in a bathroom or any room where moisture is present. A quality Satin would work just fine. As always (well, almost always) Chris is on the mark.

Yep, guy at Benjamin Moore paints said same thing. Thanks, I haven't painted yet. My brother brought me some light beigh satin finished Valspar and I may used that. It is a nice color and I was going to use some decorative painting in there I could still use the semi-gloss and may mix a little of it with the same brand and color of a flat. Hopefully, if I stir it real well it would blend well enough to use in smaller area. I will mix up a small batch first. The Valspar was mismatched paint for 5$ and it was 2 gallons of it and these seem to be a perfect match color wise, so I will want to use it somewhere. I am too frugal not too. Thanks,
