If you like a low gloss paint in your bathroom, I recommend you go no lower than satin.
The Solera Group provides expert bathroom remodeling services in the greater San Jose metro area.
Because bathrooms are so wet, you want a durable easy to clean paint, and the higher the gloss the greater the durability and the easier to clean.
Sometimes if your bathroom is being painted a very bright white and you like a lot of bright lighting, the gloss of a high sheen paint will be too much.
If that bright bright decor is a must for your remodel, you’ll need to reduce the sheen to reduce the glare.
However I strongly recommend you stick with a sheen of satin at a minimum.
Eggshell and flat are just not good choices to bathrooms, and other wet areas.
The advantages of satin paint are:
- Lower gloss than high gloss and semi gloss.
- Hides blemishes in the walls better than high gloss and semi gloss, yet worse than flat and eggshell.
- Greater durability than flat and eggshell.
You might consider it an excellent middle of the road solution.
