Resene recommends you use waterborne paints wherever you can as most people find them easier to use. Some decorators may prefer to use solventborne paints on surfaces such as trim and joinery and in bathrooms and kitchens, where surfaces may be more prone to grease, scuffing, high humidity, moisture or where surfaces are pressed together.
You can tell whether a paint is waterborne with a quick meths test. Clean the paint surface then using a rag with methylated spirits rub the paintwork. If the paint dissolves it is waterborne paint.
