Answer: 
Hi Alscat,
Thank you for your interest our BEHR Premium Plus Interior/Exterior Paint. We recommend a semi-gloss or satin finish for bathrooms, as they are more water resistant than some other finishes.
Good luck with your project!

Answer: 
Hello!
Thank you for your question!
Typically people will use a satin finish on their bathroom. It is easy to clean and has good mildew resistance.
Technically you can use high gloss, but high gloss is really shiny and can be overwhelming in a small space.
Have a great day!

Rated 4.7 out of 5 by 59 reviewers.
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Awesome Paint We buy Behr paint all the time. We have used this exterior paint for many purposes on our property over the years. It lasts really well and we buy this even when there is another paint that is cheaper. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] June 22, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Breath of Fresh Air Took our home to a whole new level! Thank you Behr! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] June 28, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by A great buy! The painters I hired to paint my home exterior insisted we use only this product. I dont argue with experts! It was 10 years ago and my home still looks beautiful and only took one coat. I love the results and would recommend it to everyone! [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] April 8, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Really great!! I used this paint to redo the doors on my new house. I love the way that it went on. It was a bit thicker than typical wall paint, but in the end, who cares? The only reason thing I've found to be a pain is that it scratches a little when my dog shuts the dokr behind himself. I didn't lower the star rating, because even though it's scratched a little bit, it's been 4-20x per day over 4 month's time and I've only had a few small spots to touch up. It's been a really great product, and I used so little of my pint, that I'll have touchup paint for years. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] February 13, 2016
Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Exterior Paint Best garage door paint I've used, and it's self priming with mildew resistance. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] March 2, 2016
Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wrong Color for Front Door I am painting a new front door. The first coat of paint went on smoothly, but the door appeared bright pink (I had chosen a dark red color). After the second coat, it is still a pinkish color but a little darker, but still not the color that I chose.. I am waiting for spring time to put on a 3rd coat. I didn't know that I would have to put so many coats of paint on this door. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] February 11, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Withstands test of time We painted our house with Behr paint 15 years ago and will never use another brand. We had a fire in our kitchen 2 years ago and insisted on using Behr to repaint the kitchen and are completely satisfied. we have had great results inside and out. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] February 14, 2016
Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Best Wearing Paint Ever It's been nearly 4 years having painted the exterior of our entire house. Looks so good like we finished it yesterday. This paint does not seem wear from extreme temperatures, sun and from pounding rain storms. [This review was collected as part of a promotion.] February 8, 2016
