Hi,

I’ve recently had a new bathroom installed and it’s pretty much finished bar the freshly plastered ceiling.

I know I need to put on a mist coat first and paint over that with a specialist bathroom paint.

What I’m not so clear on is what paint to use for the mist coat in a bathroom. Would a trade white be fine? Or should I be using the specialist bathroom paint as a mist coat? Is there something else I should be doing?

Many thanks,

Stuart

Toolstation do a fresh plaster paint by crown that's very good. Saves watering down the paint and can be painted on slightly damp plaster and still allow it to breath.

Once you've done your mist coat then paint using the bathroom paint to stop mould from forming.

Don't use the bathroom paint for your mist coat as the additives will cause issues
