Go for waterproof paint Bathrooms are exposed to a lot of moisture and humidity so it is wise to select a semi-gloss or waterproof paint for the non-tiled surface and the ceiling. Such finishes have a shiny surface and are resistant to fungal growth caused by dampness. Also consider paints with water beading technology (available with paint companies like Asian Paints). The hydrophobic (water-repellent) nature of this paint does not permit any absorption of water that may cause dampness to the walls and forces the water to roll down as little beads.Tip: To ensure that there is no dampness within the bathroom, install an effective exhaust fan and make provision for ample natural light and ventilation.Read more:Bathtub vs Shower: Which is Right for Your Home?Why Marble Might Be Wrong for Your BathroomTell us: How have you sealed leakages and controlled dampness in your bathrooms?

7. Warm and fuzzy bathroomThe best of bathrooms come with their unique touches – maybe with TVs and surround-sound systems, innovative shower heads or glamorous bathtubs. But they also feature elegant materials. Tejas Patel of Studiovistara mixes a range of natural materials to create drama and give this bath some depth. Think about combining a wooden finish with dark stone tiles and plenty of plants in a private courtyard to create a warm and a cosy spot.
