Types Of Paint FINISHES

Matte/Flat Paint: Matte or flat paint is used for a non-reflective and smooth finish. It’s perfect for drywall, ceilings, and new construction. It requires less coats and can be easily cleaned.

Eggshell Paint: One of the most popular types of paint, used for a soft and low sheen finish. Eggshell paint is great for hallways and living rooms and it does well to resist stains and scuffs.

Satin Paint: A great universal paint option for both indoor and outdoor use. Satin paint provides a soft sheen with a pearl-like finish. Most rooms throughout the house would work well with a satin paint.

Semi-Gloss Paint: A more reflective paint option that gives your room a sleek and shiny appearance which can brighten up a room. It works great for kitchens, bathrooms, and laundry rooms as it is highly moisture resistant. 

High-Gloss Paint: The most reflective type of paint to choose from. It’s a popular choice for cabinets, doors, and trim. High gloss paints require several coats but will offer exceptional glass-like results.
