Waterproof Paint for Bathroom Walls Painters

Bathrooms are moist places that likely to harbor mold and mildew over time. If you’re repainting these rooms, you probably want to consider the types of paint that will help to repel the moisture that builds up and causes this unsightly mold and mildew.

There are several types of paint, and here’s a short list and description of each one, leading up to the best waterproof paint for bathroom walls:

Flat paint has a matte coating and is not glossy, which makes it prone to absorbing moisture. Probably something you don’t want in your bathroom.

Eggshell paint has slightly more sheen to it and is washable. Similar to flat, it absorbs moisture, so this would not be the most effective choice.

Satin paint has more gloss than the previous two, and would be most appropriate for lower-use bathrooms such as “powder” or guest bathrooms.

semi-gloss and high-gloss are your best choices for bathroom paint. These types have gloss that repels water, reducing the buildup of mold and mildew spots.

There are also specific types of paint for bathrooms that claim to be mold and mildew resistant. You can find these at any typical paint retailer such as Sherwin Williams or a home improvement store like Home Depot.
