Which Paint Where
Kitchen and bath: Choose a moisture- and peel-resistant satin or semigloss with mildewcides.
Ceiling: Paints labeled for ceilings are thicker and less splatter-prone than wall paint. They are also extra flat to cut glare from lights.
Entry, stairway, and family room: Durable, easy-to-clean 100 percent acrylic latex in an eggshell sheen will stand up to high traffic and fingerprints.
