What Paint Can You Use In High Moisture Areas?

Glidden Team: 
What are the best paints to use in a kitchen, bathroom, and other high-moisture areas? 

Sr. Product Manager and PPG Paint Specialist:  
Due to the high levels of humidity and condensation that both kitchens and bathrooms are subjected to, they become prone to paint cracking, peeling and mildew. In order to avoid these problems, painting with a satin or semi-gloss paint is recommended. Satin and semi-gloss paints have a higher sheen value, meaning it provides a harder finish that proves more moisture resistant. Along with the benefits of moisture resistance, satin and semi-gloss finishes are also very washable and scrubbable.
