Best SW paint for bathroom as flat as possible

jockewingMay 17, 2011

I detest sheen on painted walls so I am looking for the flatest paint for my bathroom. I love to use SW Cashmere in flat as it is very thick with little dripping and looks like velvet on the wall. I prefer to use SW as there is no BM close to me.

Would Cashmere in the Low Lustre formulation work? The guy at SW said that would work--there may be white water spots after a shower that would disappear after drying with no ill effects. He also recommended Duration Matte. I used Duration once before and I really didn't like it all that much.

Can anyone help me? The bathroom is generally only used by one adult--about half the time baths instead of showers.

I used Duration Matte in my kitchen and love it. However, if you don't like Duration you might want to stick with the Cashmere Low Lustre.

Maybe check into to Super Paint too. Duration matte would be ideal, however.

Don't know what's available but there are some great options from Dunn Edwards, Muralo and Diamond Vogel. Or even Pratt & Lambert Accolade. Maybe there's a local independent that carries one of these lesser known brands.

There are some incredible values, treasures to be found in an independent paint store if ya know what to look for.
