The Best Paint for Bathrooms

When it comes to home remodels, kitchens and bathrooms are the two biggest focuses in the home.  They’re also the top considerations for buyers.  Due to the potential expense involved in both projects, buyers love homes that require little, if any, work.  From significant expenses, such as countertops, to smaller costs like paint choice, every detail matters.  As premier painters in NH, the team at Corriveau Contracting is here to explain the importance of paint choice.

An often overlooked detail, choosing the proper paint for each room is imperative in maintaining its integrity.  Here are a few tips for selecting the right paint for your bathroom remodel:

Moisture resistance

Even with the proper ventilation, bathrooms have some of the highest moisture levels within the home.  From steamy showers to splashing faucets, moisture is inevitable.  Thus, appropriate measures should be taken to keep your family as safe a possible.  What does your paint have to do with the health of your family?

Certain brands and lines of paint offer homeowners anti-microbial additives that resist mold and mildew.  Combined with proper ventilation, paints such as Benjamin Moore’s Aura line will give your bathroom a fresh look while keeping respiratory concerns at bay. Below are just a few conditions that can occur due to mold and mildew in the home:

  • Allergies
  • Asthma
  • Headaches
  • Skin irritations
  • Shortness of breath
  • Bronchitis
  • Wheezing
  • Nausea and vomiting

Not only will a moisture-resistant paint help to eliminate potential health risks to your family, but it will provide protection to your walls.  There’s nothing worse than spending hours of valuable time painting your bathroom only to have the color peel.  Peeling occurs when moisture seeps between the paint and the wall surface.  Whether steam is trapped or splashing occurs, a moisture-resistant primer can help save time and frustrations down the road. 

Easily cleaned

With a semi-gloss or high-gloss paint, you can have a more effortless cleaning experience.  However, this type of paint is not typically mold-resistant.  Yet, many people argue that if mold or mildew is to grow in the bathroom, it can be easily removed with the ease of this type of painting finish.  Thus, the choice is ultimately yours.
