These Paints Won’t Peel, Crack, Or Mildew As Quickly In Your Bathroom

Bathrooms can be a paint’s worst nightmare.

Bathrooms are hot, humid, and wet. Even with fans or open windows paint still suffers damages over time. It’ll eventually crack, peel, and/or start mildewing.

It’s a frustration all homeowners eventually come face-to-face with.

That’s usually when people start asking what the best paints for bathrooms are. They don’t want to have to see damaged bathroom walls for as long as possible.

As we’ve been professionally painting bathrooms for years, we have found the answer. The best paint for bathroom walls, tiles, and cabinets are as follows:

The Best Paints To Use In Bathrooms

The best type of paint for bathrooms is acrylic paint, also known as latex-based paint. A mildew-resistant paint with a semi-gloss finish is ideal for walls. An enamel paint with a glossy finish is great for cabinets. An epoxy paint with a flat sheen works everywhere else.

A glossy acrylic paint with an enamel formula is ideal here. It breathes better with temperature changes, meaning it expands and contracts with heat and cold. This means it won’t crack or peel as easily.

Satin finishes also work well.
