Considering rejuvenating your interior with a fresh paint job? There is more to consider than the color. There are 6 different types of interior paint, each achieving different effects.
1. Matte Paint: This is the most common interior wall paint. Since there is no shine or sheen, it is easy to mark. However, it is easy to apply, so touch ups are not difficult.
2. Matte enamel: This is a very durable option for families with young children. It has a similar matte look, but it is more resistant to marks. Just wipe your walls and you’re good to go!
3. Satin: Satin paints are a step in-between matte and gloss producing a soft sheen. This makes it easy to clean walls with a simple wipe down. However, this low sheen can highlight any imperfections in your wall.
4. Eggshell: Eggshell paint is similar to satin, as it has a subtle shine, but it lacks the smoothness of a satin finish. This aspect makes it more suitable for interior walls with imperfections.
5. Semi-Gloss: Although it can be used on walls, semi-gloss paint is mostly used on trim. It is easy to clean and provides a bit of shine.
6. Gloss: Gloss paint is the other most commonly used for interior walls. However, it may take multiple coats to achieve complete coverage and it can highlight the imperfections. It can also be used on woodwork due to its high shine.
