The Different Sheens of Paint
Gloss and flat are self-explanatory but the overall look can get a bit hazier with a mix of eggshell and satin finish. Regardless, there are still some conventional rules when it comes to choosing to finish for your interior. Unless you are a non-conformist and want to do your thing; it might be helpful to understand which surfaces are built for which paint and wood finish. These conventions also apply to outdoor paints. Paint can make your outdoor decor looks perfect.
Flat, eggshell or gloss – here’s a brief overview of which finish goes where.
Flat and Matte
Having the lowest amount of glossiness at roughly 0-10% sheen, meaning they are non-reflective but also prone to catching dust and dirt. These are mostly used for walls and doors, having a smooth and velvety appearance.
Eggshell and Satin
Since satin is slightly glossier than eggshell, these have very little shine and reflectivity. Known as the ‘mid-sheen’ finishes; more reliable and durable than flat and matte. Because of these qualities, they are mostly used in kitchens and bathrooms, while satin is used for doors and trim.
Semi and High-Gloss
These are the most reflective finishes of paints and traditionally applied for skirting boards, doors, mouldings, window, and other trim etc. It is the toughest finish to deal with. Because of their high intensity of sheen, gloss finish can also show up imperfections. So keep in mind to prepare the substrate beforehand.
Dramatic, subtle, stylish or cozy paint colors will set the mood and overall theme of your room. While it is equally essential to always choose what you want, it is important to also keep in mind to choose the mood based on how you picture the room.
Each of these companies has a wide range of products catering to different segments of the industry. Although the internet is an amazing tool for fresh ideas, it can also lead to mistakes. For example, seeing colors and different tones of mixture for one space will not fit for all spaces. Light, ceiling, height, furnishing and fixtures all add up to the role.
You want a space that is your ultimate spot for seclusion and space. We would recommend going for muted tones such as beiges, teal, pale pinks, green tones that inspire comfort and relaxation.
And of course, if you want a space to clear and empty the mind, there are always all those whites.
