Here’s some handy hints from the team at Jim’s Professional Painting St Kilda:
The easiest way to renew the look of any room is to add a fresh coat of colour. Let’s take a look at the four most common paint finishes.
A medium gloss, this one reflects a great level of light off its surface. Satin paints are popular because of their smooth and attractive finish which is long-lasting and easy to clean.
Flat paint finishes appear matt because they absorb light. This is the best finish to hide any wall surface imperfections such as patches or joins.
- Semi to high gloss
These glossy finishes look amazing. Kitchens and bathrooms, which are exposed to a high level of moisture, humidity and water, are better suited to high gloss paints.
This finish does have a sheen, although it is not as reflective as a Satin finish. The low-lustre effect covers imperfections well after two coasts. This paint finish is a safe choice for most of the walls in the house, especially if you don’t have young children.
