WHICH PAINT DO I USE FOR MY BATHROOM RENOVATION?
Bathroom paint needs to provide protection from humidity and moisture that leads to staining, chipping and peeling and it is recommended to choose the correct paint product.
Flat/matte finish is commonly used in new construction and on ceilings as it hides flaws. As it does not reflect light directly, imperfections in walls and ceilings are much less noticeable.
• Resene SpaceCote Flat is designed to bring enamel style toughness to broadwall areas, allowing you to get a desirable flat finish without sacrificing durability. Very adaptable, it can also be used on interior wet areas and joinery and trims.
Eggshell / low-sheen finishes provide a slight sheen similar in appearance to the surface of an egg. While it is common for use on walls, it is tougher to clean than walls with satin paint, as it tends to absorb stains.
• Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen Kitchen & Bathroom combines the benefits of a waterborne enamel with added anti-bacterial silver protection and MoulDefender is a good option.
Satin sheen provide a slightly more reflective surface and are excellent at resisting mildew, dirt and stains, making them better suited to more frequently used rooms such as bathrooms. They can withstand cleaning and light scrubbing better than flat or eggshell finishes.
Semi-gloss finishes offer high resistance to moisture. High-gloss sheens are reflective finishes that are ideal for highlighting trim and architraves.
• Resene Lustacryl semi-gloss waterborne enamel with added anti-bacterial silver protection and MoulDefender is a good option.
