Why Should I Use Bathroom Paint?

Using regular wall paint in a bathroom is generally not recommended for several reasons:

  1. Odour Resistance: Bathrooms can develop unpleasant odours due to moisture and other factors. Some bathroom paints are formulated to resist these odours and provide a fresher, more pleasant environment.
  2. Moisture Resistance: Bathrooms are high-moisture environments, and regular wall paint is not designed to withstand prolonged exposure to moisture. The humidity and moisture in bathrooms can lead to paint peeling, blistering, or bubbling over time.
  3. Mould and Mildew Growth: Bathrooms are prone to mould and mildew growth due to the combination of moisture and warmth. Regular wall paint does not have the mould and mildew resistance properties of specialized bathroom paints. Mould and mildew can damage the paint and pose health risks.
  4. Durability: Bathroom walls are often subjected to more wear and tear than other areas. Splashes of water, cleaning agents, and physical contact can all take a toll on the paint. Specialized bathroom paints are designed to be more durable and washable, making them better suited for this environment.
  5. Stains: Bathrooms are susceptible to stains from soap, toothpaste, and other personal care products. Regular wall paint may absorb these stains, making them difficult to clean or remove.

Bathroom paints are often labeled as “bathroom and kitchen paint” or “bathroom and mildew-resistant paint.” These paints are formulated with moisture-resistant and mould-inhibiting properties, making them better suited for the unique conditions in a bathroom. They are also available in various finishes to suit your aesthetic preferences. Using regular wall paint in a bathroom is generally not recommended for several reasons:
