Sheen is the degree to which a paint shines, or has a glossy look.
Different requirements call for different degrees of sheen.
The Solera Group provides expert bathroom remodeling services in the greater San Jose metro area.
High gloss is most useful for trim work as it provides accent to the trim work and is very easy to keep clean.
Semi gloss is also useful for trim work (if high gloss is too glossy for you). Consider using on walls near sources of water, such as in bathroom and kitchens, as like high gloss it is easy to keep clean.
Satin paint is good for high traffic areas such as hallways and bedrooms for children. It is not as durable as high gloss or semi gloss, but cleans up much better than eggshell or flat.
Eggshell paint is good for rooms where people regularly congregate, but are not high traffic areas (hallways) or wet rooms (bathrooms and kitchens).
Flat or Matte
Flat or matte paint has no sheen what so ever and is best at hiding imperfections in the wall surface.
