    Use the same primer and paint as you use in the rest of the house.

    I use Zinsser Bullseye 1-2-3 Primer for all of my painting projects, including the bathroom. Be sure to have an exhaust fan to get rid of excess moisture. The easiest paint to maintain is latex. I have used enamel but when you want to change the color with a latex paint you have to prime again first. Always purchase a good quality paint.
