Latest word on bathroom paint?

Posted by kitchendetective (My Page) on

One of our bathrooms is currently painted in a Sherwin-Williams eggshell, ivory color. The bathroom gets a lot of use as it is next to the mudroom and the place where people shower after ranch work, gardening, etc. It is ready to be repainted, probably in a pale blue-green. Would Benjamin Moore Bath and Spa be the way to go in this room? Do I need to prime? Best finish? Advice?

Current paint is in good condition, except for a couple of slightly worn-looking spots.

(I really like Farrow and Ball, but perhaps that is not the best choice for such a hard-used room?)

Aura® Bath & Spa
If I was doing it I would prime with Zinsser's 123

So, one coat 123. Do I get it tinted? And two coats Bath & Spa matte?

no need to tint the primer, unless it is a drastic color change
and yes, always 2 finish coats
