Sheens of Paint for Different Rooms
Paint sheen refers to the gloss level of paint. Typically, the higher the gloss level, the shinier the paint looks. Different types of rooms can handle different levels of sheen. If you're thinking about repainting the walls in your home, discover which paint sheens work best in which rooms:
Flat: Paint with a flat sheen usually has a smooth and non-reflective finish. This paint does a great job of hiding flaws, concealing imperfections, and diffusing light, which makes it ideal for low-traffic areas. You can also touch up flat sheen easier than any other type of sheen. This is why flat sheen is best for bedrooms, living rooms, family rooms, ceilings, and hallways.
Matte: While matte sheen looks very similar to flat sheen, matte has a very small amount of reflection to it. That's why even though you can use matte sheen on the ceiling, it works better in dining rooms, hallways, living rooms, family rooms, and bedrooms.
Eggshell: Eggshell gets its name because it has a dull appearance without much shine, similar to a real eggshell. Not only can you use this low-luster sheen in the same rooms that can handle flat or matte paint sheen, but it's also perfect for other areas, such as a home office or foyer.
Satin: Satin is slightly glossier and shinier than eggshell. As a result, it's often easier to wipe clean. This makes it a fantastic option for rooms that see more activity, such as kitchens, playrooms, family rooms, dining rooms, laundry rooms, and children's bedrooms.
Semi-Gloss: A semi-gloss paint gives your walls a shiny appearance. It typically resists stains better than other finishes, and it's incredibly easy to scrub clean. That's why semi-gloss is the perfect choice for trims, doors, cabinets, hallways, bathrooms, and kitchens.
Now that you know which paint sheen is right for the different rooms in your house, it's time to update those paint colors.Source: Consumer Reports
