apartment. It will suffice to use gloss paint for the bathroom walls only.

him can do regular cleaning of the walls to maintain the glow and beauty of the bathroom.
A second way to address this problem is to use a glossy paint that makes the dirt on the walls less obvious.
How does this work?

cream colour to mask the dirt and make the dirt less obvious.
