We've just moved house and would like to update the bathroom with a new colour scheme. Any recommendations for hard wearing bathroom paint? It's part tiled so won't get behind shower but the room has poor ventilation so condensation is a problem. Thanks.

We used dulux bathroom paint and five years later it still looked good.

damp and condensation will not help the paint.

Start by fitting a powerful extractor fan.

Can we paint if we install a powerful extractor?

of course

We used Valspar & it needed 5 coats to cover a light colour. Always looked patchy. It also marks & has water drip lines on some parts. Wouldn't recommend it.

We used Dulux & it covered in 2 coats & lasts well.
