What Type of Paint Should Be Used for a Bathroom Shower Area?

Sep 12, 2023

Planning your bathroom remodel includes cabinet doors, cabinet boxes, vanity tops, and shower paint color.

When considering a bathroom remodel, one common query homeowners have is about the best paint for bathroom showers. This question is crucial, especially when thinking about the specific challenges and conditions a shower area faces.

Understanding Shower Conditions

There are many factors at play for paint inside the shower, including:

Moisture and soap – The daily splashes from water and soap can be harsh on paint. That’s why you need a paint that’s specially formulated to resist moisture and soap scum build-up.

Temperature fluctuations – With hot showers, the paint needs to tolerate temperature changes without cracking or peeling.

Choosing the Best Paint for Bathroom Showers

When you’re looking for the best paint for inside shower coverage, take these factors under advisement:

Paint for Shower Walls

The ideal paint for shower walls is a high-quality, water-based latex paint. This type of paint rivals oil-based ones in its ability to adhere to surfaces and resist fading. Additionally, it dries quickly, making the application process smooth and efficient.

Paint for Inside Shower

If you’re focusing on the internal parts of the shower, opt for high-gloss, semi-gloss, or satin paints. These paints cure to a harder finish, making them more moisture resistant. Plus, they are easier to clean, ensuring your shower stays sparkling.

Mildew Resistance

Always look for specialty paints that have anti-mildew agents. Alternatively, you can use a mildewcide primer or paint additive to ensure your bathroom remains mildew-free.
