does powder room drywall need to be the green type that is moisture resistant or can it be the regular kind because there is not so much humidity in a powder room (at least not as much as in a bathroom where you take showers)?

i plan to only have a tile baseboard with the rest of the walls just painted. i suppose that could make a difference.

thanks

amakarevic, Or you could just put moisture board at the sink area just to be safe.
Also remember to keep all the drywall 1/2" off of the floor when you install it.:thumbup:

No, all you need is regular 1/2".

Green board should only be used around tubs and showers, and even then it's actually inadequate and the wrong material.
