Paint for Bathroom??


Hope to see some comments on which paint to use in the bathroom. Just gutted a very small bathroom, new green sheetrock, etc. primed with SW Premium Floor and wall primer-great stuff:-) with 2 coats and now ready for some color. Going crazy trying to find a paint for a small bathroom with high moisture, yes we run a fan for 20 minutes after our shower. I’d like to stay with SW but been reading too much and I am worried about “Sticking” and smoothing “brush marks which Duration the one I picked so far has.
Any recommendation on which paint “Satin” to use with the SW primer stated above for the best paint with no stickiness and good smoothing. Consumer Reports does not rate SW too high but Behr and Valspar Reserve is at the top. Confused.
PS--Have thought about BM Kitchen and Bath paint too.
Thanks!!!
Stan

SW Cashmere Low-Lustre would be fine.
One coat of primer would have been sufficient.

SW has a product called M-1 Advanced Mildew Treatment that you can add to the paint as a precaution against the high humidity. Cashmere is good (my preference, Low-Lustre). Duration is good. Even Super Paint works well. To avoid brush marks use a decent brush and not one of those cheap plastic ones.

Zinsser Perma White might be the best kitchen and bath paint out there but it doesn't tint well so bold colors are out.

If you want to stay with SWP, your question was already answered well before I got here

Personally, I would go with Benjamin Moore Kitchen and Bath Paint, but some people just think SW is the best( wrong!)

Re: Paint for Bathroom??


My wife is still looking for a color so I have a little time.

Which paint has the BEST self-leveling trait in a Satin or Semi-gloss for a bath.

So far I have chosen SW Duration in Satin. OK????

I hate brush marks so sorry to be so picky.

I guess I've been reading too much.

Thanks!
Stan

Re: Paint for Bathroom??


I would go with what gymschu said above rather than Duration.

He would know better because he uses more than I do. So maybe I am wrong. He will let us know soon.

Re: Paint for Bathroom??


Yes, I was going to reinforce my choice of Cashmere. It goes on Buttery smooth and levels out to a super nice finish. Duration is HIGHLY overrated and covers poorly in my opinion. If you're worried about brush marks, invest in a high quality brush and use the Cashmere. And nothing wrong with Chris's suggestion either.........
Cashmere comes in Low-Lustre which is between Satin and Semi gloss and Pearl which is a lower sheen similar to eggshell but a tad bit shinier.

That would be fine but the bath paint is made just for this purpose, why not use it?
