Flat is a sheen or finish.
It refers to the fact that the paint is not at all reflective.
The biggest advantage of flat paint is that because it’s non reflective it hides imperfections in your walls very well.
But…. flat walls are more difficult to keep clean.
They are most suitable for low traffic areas (guest bathrooms, powder rooms) and ceilings.
Pastel colors are considered most relaxing and if that is your color choice, you will get the best result with a flat (no sheen) or eggshell (low sheen) finish.
