The bathroom is a space that is exposed high levels of air humidity and frequent splashes of water, so this makes it important to choose a suitable paint for the walls. It needs to be relatively impervious to water and able to withstand changes in temperature caused by hot showers or baths. Choosing the right paint will prevent the formation of mould. An abrasion-resistant paint is also a good idea for the bathroom. You can then simply wipe off any marks. As a general rule, classic emulsion or latex paints are less suitable for the bathroom. These are not breathable enough.
Mineral paints are a better choice for decorating a bathroom. These include whitewash paint, silicate paint and special paint for wet rooms. These wet room paints usually contain chemical additives that actively help to prevent mould. However, they might contain biocides or fungicides which are potentially harmful to health. It is a good idea to examine the list of ingredients closely. A good wet room paint is the best choice for a new look in the bathroom.
