Kitchens, bathrooms and laundries are subject to steam, heat and humidity which requires paint coatings to perform in some very specific ways. Regular surface cleaning also requires the paint to be highly serviceable. It is therefore particularly important that the correct paint systems are used in these areas.
Waterborne or oil based enamels are recommended, tough, washable and steam resistant these paint products are available in a range of sheen finishes from flat to gloss. Try Resene Spacecote for a Low Sheen finish or Resene Lustacryl for a semi gloss. If you prefer the traditional oil finish but with a contemporary low sheen finish try Resene Room Velvet.
Most modern paint formulas include a mould defender, however if a kitchen or bathroom is subject to poor ventilation and subsequently mould growth use Resene Spacecote Kitchen & Bathroom Low Sheen or Resene Lustacryl Kitchen & Bathroom Semi Gloss. The addition of silver provides anti bacterial protection keeping your come safe and clean.
