The color of paint is important, but so is the way you see the paint color in your room. A paint’s finish is almost as important as its color. Matte paint, also known as flat paint, offers little or no shine. Matte paint is good at hiding imperfections such as chips or cracks, but it can be hard to clean. Matte-enamel paint is similar to matte paint, except that a film forms over the surface of the paint, making it easier to clean. Eggshell paint has a slight sheen. It is easy to clean but does not hide imperfections well. Satin, semi-gloss, and gloss (or high-gloss) paints have progressively higher levels of shine.
- A matte paint may be preferable for interior walls and ceilings. A matte finish has no shine which gives focus to your other design choices.
- Matte paints go well with older homes because it does a good work at hiding wall imperfections.
- A matte-enamel paint is just like matte paint but the difference is that the former is easier to clean.
