Simple bathroom remodel.

Hello, i am remodeling a small bathroom. I have a few questions about redoing the shower/bathtub. I plan to use the glue in wall panels for the tub surround. My question is, what type of paint should i use for the ceiling and exposed drywall that is near and around the shower?

I've always used regular ceiling paint in bath, tub, and shower areas with no problems. For a recent remodel, I did the walls with bathroom paint with a mold/mildew inhibitor.

Over the long run your real enemy is moisture. Use an oil-based primer in bathroom and a kitchen/bathroom paint. While you are renovating I would install a fan/vent if you don't have one already.
