If you’re a homeowner who’s interested in upgrading your bathroom, you might’ve heard about shower paints. But what exactly are these products, and can they accomplish the results as traditional shower remodeling solutions? Read on to find out more about the available shower paints.

What Is Shower Paint?

To make things confusing, the term, “shower paint” could potentially be referring to multiple products, depending on the context. Understanding these differences is the first step for any interested homeowner. The main products that the term refers to are:

Water-Resistant Paint

These types of paint are common and available from nearly all paint manufacturers. Water-resistant paint has been developed to resist water damage humid environments, like laundry rooms and bathrooms. That makes this type of paint ideal for any surface that won’t have direct contact with water but will still experience high moisture, so if you want to spruce up your bathroom’s style, these products are ideal.

Waterproof Lining

For homeowners who want to give their shower a makeover without spending much time or money, waterproof shower and tub paints offer a solution. These products are more akin to a thin skin or lining than most paints and are designed to provide a fully waterproof barrier for bathing spaces.

Deciding on the Right Shower Upgrade

Now that you understand the basic differences between multiple products that are often called “shower paint,” you can make a more informed decision about your own shower. If you’re interested in giving your bathroom walls a visual makeover that will be able to stand up to the rigors of a wet environment, water-resistant shower paints offer an attractive solution. And if you’d like to give your shower a temporary and attractive new finish, waterproof paints can offer an affordable option.
