painting bathroom ceiling


I would never recommend a flat in a bathroom where hot, steamy water is in the atmosphere. If you desire a low sheen, use an enamelized finish that is either MPI gloss level 2 (Low-sheen) or MPI gl 3 (Eggshell.)

painting bathroom ceiling


I have experience with flat paint used in a bathroom with shower and it is the worst thing you could ever do. In a year or two you will be sanding all the chipped and cracked paint off, applying a skim coat of drywall mud to the entire ceiling and sanding that, etc, etc.

If the ceiling is in fine condition and you are happy with the ceiling line (where the wall color meets) then why do anything? So you can say you did it? I am all for crisp lines and nice ceilings, but if it already looks good then why bother?
