Benjamin Moore Paint Spotlight: Best Paint for Bathrooms
As the most humid room in your house, we know bathrooms are exposed to high levels of condensation which adds another level of complexity when it comes to choosing the best paint for your bathroom. Below we have outlined what paint within the Benjamin Moore range we recommend for bathrooms and important factors you must consider before deciding on your bathroom paint.
Understandably your bathroom experiences high levels of humidity that can threaten the performance of your paint - this can easily end up between the wall and paint resulting in paint bubbling and peeling. Commonly professionals will steer you away from matte finishes, however these paints are fine in bathroom environments providing they are designed to resist moisture and mildew. As heat and humidity can impact how long it takes paint to cure, this is another reason why you need to select your paint carefully. For example, typically these types of paint take around 1 week to cure and provide protection, however Benjamin Moore Aura Bath & Spa is an exception.
Using a high quality primer like the Benjamin Moore Insl-X Stix Primer offers you unparalleled adhesion to various bathroom surfaces. For example, interior walls, ceramic tiles, PVC, vinyl, plastic and more. In fact, this primer is touch dry in just 30 minutes and can be top coated after 3-4 hours. If you’re painting in a small room, the Insl-X Stix primer is also low odour due to its water based formula. Note, as Benjamin Moore is a water-based paint is it not suited to areas which will be constantly wet or submerged in water, for example in a shower cubicle or shower tray.
Choosing a colour which suits your bathroom vanity or tiles has never been easier with the Benjamin Moore range as they offer over 3,500 colours. With this number of colours we are confident you will find a colour to complement your bathroom.
