Special paint needed in bathroom?

Hi. I'm about to paint my bathroom in the flat i'm renting. I can see it already has at least two coats on it already (I can see the horrible green underneath the cream!!).

Do I need to use a special time of paint due to the humidity etc or can I just paint right over the top of what already there with normal paint??

Special paint needed in bathroom?

Their are paints made for Bathrooms that handle the moist environment better. Also it would be best to stick with a gloss or semi gloss in a bathroom. Hardware or home store should easily help you pick one out that will work in a bath. Figure the area for coverage you will need so you can buy the right amount. No reason to buy a gallon if you are only going to use a quart. You may want to consider a primer/sealer to help block out that horrible green.

If your bathroom is well ventilated then there isn't much need for a special paint which is more expensive.

A top tip if you are painting over a dark or strong colour:

Instaed of using two coats of your chosen expensive colour, use a cheaper white version of the type of paint you are using as the first coat thyen apply the expensive one straight over that!
