Overwhelmed at the paint store? I’ve got you covered!
Paint is one of the cheapest and most effective ways to change a space and here’s the breakdown of which type of paints to use for your home.
No light reflection, more forgiving of flaws. Good for ceilings and low traffic areas. Tip: high traffic areas with frequent scuffs and scrapes will be a tough to clean if you use a flat paint
Almost as shine-free at flat, Withstands frequent washing. Lends to luxury look. Tip: I love Aura Bath & Spa – works in a high moisture room and is very durable
Most popular, low sheen, but more durable. Easy-to-clean, nearly shine-free finish, suited for most areas of a home.
Medium gloss, high durability. Easy to clean. Lends dimension to trim but optimal for walls in high-traffic areas. Versatile.
Delivers higher gloss than eggshell, offering better stain resistance and durability than lower sheens like eggshell.
Great for millwork, trim, and doors. Durable and has a furniture-like finish.
High Gloss Paint
Mirror-like finish. Extremely durable. Easy to clean, stain-resistant and great for doors, trim, and even kitchens. Better for professional painters, requires solid prep work because it will show imperfections on a surface.
