My house has got wooden window frames. I'm planning on painting them all soon. My question is, I know you can get special bathroom paint, anti mould etc but can you get a similar thing for a gloss paint for wood. My bathroom gets very steamy so I want to use a decent product on the window frames. Any help/ideas would be great.

Best to tackle the steam issues first. A simple electronic fan installation would go along way to help. Get one in for around £50 DIY. We can help you do it.

I take it you are talking about painting the inside surfaces and my feeling is that acrylic paint will do as good as any. They dry quickly between coats so you can get a few coats on to give a nice finish.

Have you thought about UPVC windows? It might be a good idea to start with the bathroom and work around the house.

Owatrol do an additive called vc175, it's a mould inhibitor that you add to paint, haven't used it personally, but might be worth a shot.
