    Hi folks. I've recently had 5 ceilings skimmed and am currently mist coating with a 50:50 mix of Dulux Matt and water. This will also be used for the top coat, but in the bathroom should I be using kitchen and bathroom paint instead? Can I get away with not bothering!? What's the difference?
    Thanks.

    You will need to use a bathroom paint which has a soft sheen finish. It will be moisture resistant and stop moud from forming.

    Eggshell paint is the way to go as it has been developed for areas of steam and high humidity. Use the acrylic one not the solvent based.;)
