Editor's Notes

January 10, 2019:

When choosing the right kind of paint for a bathroom, the primary concern will be resistance to mold and mildew as this tends to be the most humid room of the house. The Kilz eggshell finish took the top spot because it looks great on walls that aren't perfect while still being easy to clean, and it offers a lot of color options.
