Just looking into options on how to finish my bathroom walls.

I originally wanted to use normal pb and get someone in to skim it. Now I have started looking into it a bit more I've seen mixed opinions on moisture resistant pb.

Once normal plasterboard is skimmed then painted will I see any benefits if I had used MR plasterboard?

Many thanks

You can't skim onto moisture resistant plasterboard without painting a bonding agent like blue grit on it first. Why not use moisture resistant plasterboard and tape and fill the joints?
If that doesn't appeal then normal boards and a skim coat of plaster.

In a non directly wet area( in / around shower) or with minimal splashing from a sink/bath normal plasterboard is fine... assuming adequate ventilation.
