Thumbs up interior but add mildewcide to it at paint store

interior satin or eggshell finish if you can accept the sheen (greater with satin, less with eggshell). Regardless, add the one ounce of mildewcide they sell at the paint counters and just make sure your ceiling fan keeps dumping the moist air outside (Not into the attic or soffit! all the way out)

The finish paint needs to be a latex enamel [any sheen] As noted above, if you don't use a bath rm paint it would be a good idea to add extra mildewcide [it's already in the bath paint]

Depending on the manufacture, eggshell and satin can have the same approximate sheen.

Interior. I also agree I'd use a kitchen/bathroom paint.

I never even knew about Mildewcide. Thanks. I had a pint of touch up paint that I wanted to use to cover a large area of a bathroom wall.
