Interior latex paint will last for many years, decades. The only things that will affect it is;
* Color (Dark or vibrant colors can fade faster.)
* Sunlight from windows (Affects vibrant colors the most.)
* Washing (Harsh chemicals can cause fading of the color and damage to the paint film.
* Moisture (Bathrooms will need repainting more often that any other areas.)
