... with all the steam that a shower creates within! I'm looking at the ideal primer & top coat paint. Are the following two products o.k after an initial sanding of the door? The paint on the bathroom door at present is 'Dulux satinwood mid sheen & hasn't lasted.

Yes, though you would be advised to leave your bathroom door open for a couple of days to allow the paint to dry completely.

Hi Ken, supposedly dries quite quickly. It's having the time isn't it when there are four of you using the bsthroom. There's a fan of course, but my granddaughter loves spending an age in there!

Hopefully those two products are fine, thank you.
Eleanor, with paint, there's 'dry', then there's 'dry'. Touch dry does not mean ready to paint over. And i don't think it would do the paintwork much good were someone to fill the bathroom with steam while the top coat was drying.
Eleanor. For paint to come off a door like that is a bit of a worry.
You mention a fan. Is it being used? Does it come on with the centrelight?

Either it's not on when it should be, or ........ wait for it ............

You're going to need a BIGGER FAN.

Seriously, that amount of vapour is doing the house no good at all.
I've stopped wagging my finger now ;o)
Oh, and I agree with Ken. That paint's fine.

Ken, noted! I'll have to do this when granddaughter is at her dads give it a chance to dry thoroughly. I think she escapes in there from everything & 'dithers' .. kids! ;0)

Hi builder, yes there is a fan in there, I'm quite strict it's turned on 'hacker's the shower is even started .. & also have the window open a little. Granddaughter both have long hair & take way too long in there.
Thank you both for the o k on the paint x

Oil based gloss paint...
Leave open for a few days....

Why make it complicated?

Hi nailit, because as I've found .. if you don't prepare the surface right, it'll peel in a bathroom area.
Use an *OIL* BASED* Based paint eleanor....
Forget Satin and Mid-sheen.
Question Author
Yes I see where you're coming from nailit. Just my link to the top coat I found said suitable for bathroom. I did wonder whether I should use an oil based paint to finish though.
Question Author
I didn't want a gloss finish.
//I didn't want a gloss finish. //
If its damp and wet its going to peel.
No getting around it.
If Ken & Builder know better, then I would SERIOUSLY want to know.
No sarcasm intended, I would seriously like to know.
Im a bit behind now with decorating technologies...
My doors aren't painted...and I'm going to leave them that way. Much less complicated.
