Do you shower with the bathroom door open or closed?

Assuming you run your bathroom fan, which way is better in terms of limiting moisture-damage to your bathroom and/or home?

hmmm

well it certainly limits the moisture in the bathroom if I leave the door open, but since the bathroom has a different type of paint I assume it's more prepared to deal with moisture than the living room (which is the next room the steam will go to)

Either way, I think the key is opening up afterward to let fresh air in the room.

So I don't know the answer smile

My bathroom fan is vented to the outside, so it's pretty efficient whether the door is open or closed. So the door status is based on whether I want to retain heat in the bathroom. In the winter, I usually turn on the heat lamps and keep the door shut. In the summer, I don't use the heat lamps and keep the door open. shrug

This is the crux of the issue right here!!!

I need a ruling! Better for my apartment to shower with the door open or closed? hammer

I'd say closed. Plus, the fan must be left on for 1 hour after the shower to get rid of the slowly evaporating water left in shower.

99.9% of everything I say is strictly for my own entertainment

Sounds to me from reading these posts that the answer is obvious.

I don’t have a fan in my bathroom. There's a vent thingy that intakes air, but no actual fan on it.

I live alone.

The bathroom door is always open. lol

I simply never shut it, unless I have company.

I doubt it really matters, when you open the door after you finish, a huge cloud of steam will waft into the next room, or if you leave it open it will happen gradually during the course of the shower. Either way some steam will be getting on your walls.

Just air your place out after and worry about which porn star you'd most like to bang instead

You dont have to get a different "kind" just a different sheen... You should always use eggshell or greater in a bathroom...

Unless you have serious moisture issues (and it doesn't sound like you do), you don't need special paint.

That's only really necessary if your bathroom's prone to mildew.

I always use eggshell in every room... Flat can look nice but its a bitch to keep clean! Especially if its a lighter color..

flat paint looks nicer IMO, but I believe it is more porous so water & grease can penetrate more easily

this could be an issue esp on your bathroom & kitchen ceiling where steam collects or if you splash water anywhere
