Dulux Bathroom paint, or any sheen type paint. Vinyl or Acrylic Matt is suitable.
Artex is another good idea as steam doesn't get through it so will last years. Just doesnt look as nice as flat ceilings.

Always used a good well known company that has bathroom paints. It might be bit more expensive than normal paint but it will last much longer than normal. Also when using bathroom paint i also like to add an additive that prevents any mould as bathrooms are always prone to moisture

I would suggest that the best option for a paint to use in a bathroom would be to use a paint dedicated for bathrooms as this helps to resist mildew. It also has a tougher finish, allowing for it to be wiped down with a non abrasive cleaner.

You can purchase celling and wall paints that are E.coli resistant and designed for bathrooms from a good DIY retailer. The can be wiped down keeping clean. Most bathroom celling issues are due to the fact of in indicate ventilation. A busy small bathroom with a family of 4 without the correct paint and not enough ventilation will cause damp, mildew, and even your tile grout to break down sooner than if a person used the same bathroom on their own.

Purpose bathroom paint is designed for bathrooms. But aslong as the bathroom is properly aired regularly then normal emulsion can be used
