Dulux paint bathroom

Dulux paint bathroom DEFAULT

Bathrooms are notoriously demanding environments where coatings are concerned, so you'll need to use products that stand up to tough conditions, such as moisture, humidity and high traffic. Stick to these Dulux Trade products for a finish that'll perform brilliantly and will look great too.


Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell or Diamond Matt

Silk and soft sheen are often chosen for bathrooms because they have higher vinyl content and water runs off. They can, however, trap moisture beneath the coating film, leading to blistering or peeling. Lower sheen Diamond Eggshell and Diamond Matt are less likely to peel and blister. Plus, their formulation also means they are stain resistant and washable so can withstand daily wear and tear.


Dulux Trade Quick Dry Gloss or Dulux Satinwood

Bathrooms and shower rooms tend to be poorly lit, and the lack of natural light speeds up the ageing process of oil-based paints. Not only will water-borne coatings retain their colour better (as oil-based paints tend to yellow), but they're quick drying and low odour, meaning the bathroom can be returned to normal use much sooner. Quick-dry trim products are also available in a choice of satin or gloss finish to suit all tastes.

Top tips for application

Water-borne coatings can be applied to bathroom surfaces in the normal way, but there are a few important things to remember. Bathrooms are not always well ventilated and therefore tend to be quite damp and humid. This can lead to the following problems:

  1. Mould or mildew. This must be dealt with before coatings are applied, preferably with a fungicidal wash, otherwise regrowth will occur under the new coating and spoil the finish.

  2. Even if there is no mould or mildew, there are likely to be surface contaminants such as dirt, soap scum deposits, and limescale from splashes. While it is standard practice to wash grease from surfaces in kitchens, general cleaning is often forgotten in bathrooms.

  3. High humidity slows the drying rate of coatings. Make sure the surfaces are dry and the room is well ventilated during application and drying.

    Remove loose or flaking material. Treat surfaces affected by mould growth with a suitable fungicidal wash. Make sure the surface is clean (no dirt or grease) and dry.

  • 2. Cleaning

    Remove paint from the brush or roller with a cloth and then wash with water.

How much paint do I need?

Measure the height and length of the surface you want to paint (in metres or centimetres).

This is an estimated based on 2 coats. Actual coverage will depend on the conditions of the surface. If the colour change is strong, more coats may be required.

Best bathroom paint 2021: Long-lasting paint for bathrooms from Dulux, Crown and more

Treating a room to a lick of paint is the easiest and cheapest way to freshen it up – or give it a whole new look. When it comes to finding the best bathroom paint, though, it’s essential that the formula is designed for splash-prone areas.

Bathrooms are often damp for long periods, which can promote the growth of mildew, particularly if your bathroom doesn’t have good ventilation. So, even though bathroom paint will almost certainly cost more than regular paint, there’s no doubt it pays off in the long run.

If you're not sure which bathroom paint to go for, our comprehensive buyer’s guide below will give you all the useful information you need to make the right decision for your bathroom. We’ll also tell you how to get the best out of your paint once you’ve brought it home. Below this, you'll find our pick of the best bathroom paints available to buy right now, whatever your budget.

How to choose the best bathroom paint for you

What features should I look out for?

First off, make sure it has moisture-resistant properties. Paint with a tight molecular structure will help to prevent mildew from growing inside or beneath walls and, even if mildew does appear, you’ll be able to wipe or scrub it away. Second, you'll want to make sure the paint has mildew inhibitors.

In the past, some manufacturers used phenylmercuric acetate (PMA) but the formula contained mercury, which is dangerous to humans, so today’s paint manufacturers use safer additives that are just as effective.

Are there any alternatives to mould-resistant paint?

Yes, semi-gloss or high-gloss paints are good alternatives as the gloss repels moisture well and you can wipe clean any mildew if it does appear. Be warned, however, that this kind of paint doesn’t look great over large surface areas like walls and is better suited to windows, doors, cabinets and so on.

Satin has a little bit of gloss and can work well in low-moisture bathrooms. The same can be said for acrylic eggshell – and even eggshell has a little bit more sheen and is slightly more washable than completely flat paint.

What colour paint should I choose?

Neutral shades such as whites, creams, greys and pastels are popular bathroom colour choices because they are stylish and timeless. They also flatter reflections in the mirror – that is, they don’t recast light in a way that alters your complexion. A vibrant green or red, on the other hand, could exaggerate and distort your features. Not ideal if you plan on doing your makeup or skincare routine in the bathroom.

Do I need to do any prep work?

Yes. Before you paint, clean the bathroom walls and ceiling thoroughly, paying particular attention to any existing mildew, and use tape to block off areas you don’t want to cover with the same paint, such as woodwork and tiles. Once dry, you can get painting. When you’ve finished, try to keep windows and doors open while the paint dries.

What about primer?

Check if the bathroom paint you’re buying requires a primer. If it does, you should opt for a moisture-resistant primer to help prevent peeling. This is a common problem, which occurs when moisture from unventilated areas like showers seeps between the paint and its surface. Ideally, apply one coat of your moisture-resistant primer to the walls (and ceilings, as steam rises) before applying two coats of bathroom paint.

The best bathroom paint to buy

1. Dulux Easycare Bathroom Soft Sheen Paint: The best bathroom paint you can buy

Price £18 | Buy now from Amazon

This is non-shiny but has the same steam-resistant properties as gloss paint and is 10 times tougher than conventional Dulux matte and silk emulsion. Meanwhile, the special MouldTec formula has been found in independent tests to protect against mould for up to five years.

It comes in a wide range of modern and traditional colours, including neutrals, which we think work best in bathrooms. It’s quite thick (less splattering), can easily be used with a brush or roller and dries evenly and quickly. What more can you ask for in a bathroom paint? Even in damp bathrooms with little or no ventilation, you experience no peeling and it won’t wash off the walls like some emulsion paints. This is as good as it gets.

Key specs – Volume: 2.5 litres; Finish: soft-sheen; Number of coats required: 2; Number of colours available: 25+

2. Johnstone’s Kitchen and Bathroom Emulsion Paint: The best multi-purpose bathroom paint

Price: £30 | Buy now from Amazon

Available in a wide range of colours, this mid-sheen paint is suitable for other rooms that may need its hard-working properties. In the bathroom and kitchen, it protects against high levels of condensation and is 10 times more wash-resistant than conventional emulsions, while where it’s used in the hall and playroom you can wipe away any dirt, stains or grease.

It’s marketed as low odour and we agree that it’s much less smelly than other paints, as well as being easier to clean off brushes and trays. Be warned that you might need three coats if the walls aren’t already in good condition, so consider that when ordering your paint as you won’t want to get caught short in the middle of the job. Some customers complain of leaking packaging, but ours arrived in perfect nick.

Key specs – Volume: 2.5 litres; Finish: mid-sheen; Number of coats required: 2; Number of colours available: 15

3. Ronseal Anti Mould Paint: The best for heavy-duty mould protection

Price £15 | Buy now from Amazon

The USP here is the advanced encapsulated biocide technology which, for the non-scientists among us, basically means it tackles the prevention of mould right at the cause and lasts for a whopping six years. So, if you’ve got a bathroom with high levels of humidity and condensation – especially bathrooms with no windows, or very small ones, and/or a lot of usage – then this is the paint for you.

It’s very thick, so doesn’t go far, but easy enough to apply and dries in under two hours. You only need two coats, but be warned: it stinks. Some other matte-finish bathroom paints claim that you can wipe them clean without living up to that promise, but we can assure you this one does what it says on the tin. Do make sure you thoroughly clean off any existing mould before you get painting, though. Also check out Ronseal’s clear version, which is great if you want to apply a top coat over a colour other than white.

Key specs – Volume: 750ml; Finish: matte; Number of coats required: 2; Number of colours available: 2

4. Wickes Bathroom Soft Sheen Emulsion Paint - 2.5L: Best value bathroom paint

Wickes describes this emulsion paint as moisture, steam and mould resistant, with minimal odour and a drying time of two to four hours. Customers report that the paint is thick enough for good coverage after one to two coats but not difficult to apply; some reviewers noted that the paint dries slightly darker than anticipated but most were content with the colours available. If you need a good quality option for less, Wickes Bathroom Soft Sheen fits the bill.

Key specs – Volume: 2.5 litres; Finish: soft sheen; Number of coats required: 1; Number of colours available: 18

So if you’ve been meaning to tackle a few areas around the home, this is the ideal solution. Choose from a 750ml tin for smaller jobs or a 2.5l (£30) tub for big areas.

Crossing my eyes at my spouse, I saw that she was looking, holding her breath. Suddenly I felt Paula's hand on my elbow, she gently stroked me, it seemed, carried away by what was happening on the screen. With her other hand, she touched my wife's wrist, also lightly stroking her.
