I've moved into a house where, after a few uses, the bathroom walls seem to be peeling. I'm wondering what the best type of primer and paint should be used in a small bathroom? Is oil based  or water based primer the best? Go to Solution.Please use plain text.First off, lets get a bit of background info. What kind of paint were you originally using on these walls? Was it a latex/oil base, and what kind of What may have happened is that there was originally a water-based primer/paint on the wall, and oil paint was applied to it.

    • The best paint to use is a semi-gloss, EXTERIOR latex house paint. Yes, exterior. The reason is that exterior house paint has fungicides added at the time of manufacture to prevent mold and mildew growth on the outside of your house. Since your bathroom happens to be a warm, wet environment perfect for the growth of these same life forms, exterior paint is perfect for bathrooms. It is a little more expensive than interior paint, but worth it in the long run.Exterior paint has chemicals unsafe and unhealthy specially for enclosed or small rooms like a bathroom, they are specific for exterior use. there are excellent interior paint specifically design for bathrooms and kitchens that are durable and already come with mildewcides.

    • What are the best name brands of paint that will prevent mold/mildew in the bathroom? When I search for this on google, I get Behr, Valspar. I am sure there are specific brands to meet this need. Would appreciate your help. ThanksI know there is an additive you can put into any paint that is "suppose" to prevent mold..Don't know if it works ..Google "Paint additive to prevent mold " Alot of articles.Yes, it's called mildewcide. You can get some Zinnser Perma White I think it is called....this is a washable paint that already has mildewcide added. You can also purchase packets of mildewcide from a paint store and have them add it into a paint of your choice before mixing.I formerly had mildew in both of my bathrooms over a year ago. I visited my local Dunn Edwards paint store (the best paint on the market, excellent coverage and durability), and told them my problem.
