Bathroom Painting

The bathrooms are a central station for all families.  With daily activities of hot water, steam and hair drying, the moisture levels are high in these rooms.  This is why it’s important to choose the right paint finish to provide the best barrier between the moisture and the paint and give you longer lasting results from painting the room.

Best Paints To Use When Painting Kitchens and Bathrooms

Because the kitchen is such a busy and high traffic room of the home it’s always a good idea to use a paint finish that is durable as well as easy to clean.

We recommend using a semi gloss or eggshell finish.

Semi Gloss Paints offer a slight visible shine but are durable and very easy to clean with a damp cloth.

Eggshell Paints are used in busy areas like kitchens and family rooms because of their ease of maintenance.  Most dirt and little finger prints are simply wiped down with a damp cloth.
