The manner in which a shower ceiling is painted is an important part of the decorative process for a bathroom. Being aware of the best types of paint for the process will ensure that the covering offers the greatest benefit for the wet area.
Gloss (or semigloss) paint can be the best type to use on a shower ceiling as it comprises all the qualities required of paint used in a wet location. This type of paint is available in a range of colors, which will enable you to find one suited to the style and color of the shower room.
A shower ceiling will ideally be painted with waterproof paint, which will provide an effective seal to prevent any water ingress. It will also make it easier to maintain as moisture will remain on the surface, allowing it to be wiped away or left to dry without affecting the surface below.
There are many types of paint on the market that are treated to ensure that they do not develop mold, which can often be the case in areas that are frequently wet. Use of a paint that contains a fungicide will keep the shower ceiling in good condition.
