We are currently working on fixing up a very old house (over 100 years). The stove in the kitchen is on a peninsula. Unfortunately there is no vent for the stove (and until we can afford a new self-venting stove – we have an electric one). On the ceiling above the stove there is a circle approximately 2 ft in diameter where the paint is a little bit bubbled and cracked from steam/heat. We have a ceiling fan that now works in the kitchen to help alleviate this problem. My question is, what can we paint in that area to prevent this from happening again. I don’t want a super-glossy patch or ceiling. We currently have eggshell paint for the room, but will consider other options if necessary. Any help would be appreciated.
