Choosing paint for bathroom
We are doing some repair work to our bathroom, and are going to repaint at the same time.
Where we live, the only options avalible to us for where to buy paint is Sherwin Williams, a local lumber yard/building supplier and (1 hour drive) Lowes.
Oh, and I think wal mart has paint too.
What type of paint is best for bathrooms?
What type of paint should we use for the trim, which is currently stained with Minwax Polyshades?
Given those choices, I'd say Sherwin Williams.
And if you can, don't shower in that bathroom for a couple weeks after you paint.
Sherwin Williams has a great K & B (Kitchen & Bath) paint
Some contractor supply/lumberyards can have some great lines of paints
Might be worth it to check them out and see what they have
B.Moore's and Zinsser's are also excellent
Zinsser's Perma-White is the best for mold/mildew resistance, and a good choice for extreme problems, but doesn't tint well
BM's and SW's K&Bs are both excellent, can be tinted to more colors, and have enough mold/mildew resistance and scrubability-certainly more than enough for most any bathroom
The Lowes paint is not particularly good, and the W*M stuff can vary in quality depending on you region (they use the cheapest supplier in any given area), but is generally not good to even worse
I'd suggest sticking to the SW/BM/Z lines if possible
Eggshell sheen for walls,semi gloss for trim. :thumbsup:
