🎨 How to pick the best paint sheen for every surface of your home 🎨⁣⁣

When selecting paint for your home, colour is likely your first thought, but the sheen of a paint is just as important.


A paint’s sheen is the amount of light it reflects, which can dramatically change how a colour looks in your home! In addition, sheen can actually affect the performance of the paint.

Paint Sheen Basics:
▫️ Flat/Matte: Requires fewer coats; best for slow traffic areas like ceilings and bedrooms

▫️ Satin/Eggshell: A more durable sheen; ideal for high-traffic areas and small spaces

▫️ Semi-Gloss/Gloss: More resistant to dirt and scuff marks, and easier to clean

▫️ Hi-Gloss: Incredibly durable, stain resistant and easy to clean but will highlight flaws
