Painting a room comes with a multitude of decisions, and one of the most important is the proper finish. Many of us know the four main selections: flat, eggshell, semi-gloss, and gloss. But how many of us feel comfortable choosing the best fit? Fortunately, Rainbow Paint is here to save the day! Learn the pros of each option below.
Flat paint allows the least shine of all the finishes. This makes it a fantastic option for hiding any blemishes in a wall that you might not want your friends and family to see. The flat finish is also a great option for naturally rougher walls due to its ability to be applied smoothly on unsmooth surfaces. One downside to this option is the difficulty of cleaning a wall without taking the paint off, so be sure to use it in adult bedrooms or other areas where kids won’t create much damage.
The safest of options, eggshell provides the best of both worlds for those who aren’t looking for bright walls. It has a little more shine than the flat, giving rooms a bit more personality. It’s also easier to clean and resists stains better than its more dull counterpart. This finish is great for heavily used and potentially messy areas like kitchens, children’s rooms, and bathrooms.
Semi-gloss provides an even tougher finish than eggshell, which makes it great for all sorts of spills and tumbles. It is the best option for an easy-to-clean wall, which many parents will love. It is brighter than both flat and eggshell, making blemishes on walls easier to see. It’s a good choice for children’s rooms and bathrooms, as well as objects like furniture and doors.
Many homeowners tend to think that gloss is too bright for interior walls, but it is a great option for cabinets, furniture, and other items that are heavily touched. If a bright, fun look is what you’re going for, gloss might be the best option for you.
