You can definitely use the same paint on those surfaces. In fact it will look best! You will want to use a latex paint designed for Kitchens and Baths. It will repel moisture the best.
I would use eggshell on both of those surfaces. If you would like more information here is a good article for you to read:
Hello Richard, I would use eggshell myself!
You could use either the eggshell or the emulsion. The emulsion might hold up better in high humidity conditions:
You can use any paint. Kitchen and Bath paint. Has mildewcides in it. Make sure you prime first.
Use a good primer on MDF. Emulsion paint is just water based paint. Eggshell is a type of sheen. Matte is flat, eggshell has a slight sheen, semi-gloss is tougher and stands up better to washing like areas in the kitchen that get wiped off often and gloss is shiny. So any latex/waterbased is fine for bathroom. Use a good primer first so you won't need so many coats of paint.
Make sure you prime first on MDF, it holds moisture. Then of course you can use eggshell finish. I went to Benjamin Moore and got an eggshell finish for my bathroom several years ago. It cleans well, hot showers do not make the paint peel. i love it.
Here's some more information about paint finishes.
Yep Eggshell is great for bathrooms!
Eggshell is a bit on the flat side for a bathroom, I would use a "Satin" finish.
I like eggshell for a bathroom, but satin also works
You can! Just prime properly before you start!
