Which paint finish do I choose?
Hey peeps! So, look there is a lot of information floating around about which paint #brand is #better. It's mainly #marketing for #companies trying to push their own #products and agenda. Not surprising since ALL brands do that.
There are some brands that are better than other brands out there. However, my job today is not to #endorse any brand. I do not make any money by telling you to buy one #brand over the other. If it ever came to that and I did #promote one it would be only because I personally LOVED the product and felt comfortable #endorsing them.
I would say most anyone who has ever painted anything knows that there are different paint finishes. However, not everyone knows what the differences are.
So, my friends, let a sister help you out. Here are my recommended finishes room by room.
Main functions: Cooking, washing dishes, eating. (Think spills, splashes, messy)
Best Finish: High Gloss or Semi Gloss
Tip: The "glossier" the #paint the lower the amount of #pigment and less #resin. This makes the finish #durable and easier to #clean. *Downside- The glossier the paint = the more visibility of flaws like scratches or rubs. * Buy extra paint for occasional touch ups.
Main functions: Watching TV, entertaining, relaxing. (Think lots of people, sometimes food involved, commonly used room)
Best Finish: Satin
Best Finish: Eggshell
Main functions: #Sleeping, holding your stuff and well... (Low traffic, not used for company)
Best Finish: Flat or Matte
Tip: #Flat paint covers walls more #quickly since there is extra #pigment. That translates into less #coats= less #money. (Usually not the case when going from an extremely #dark paint to a #lighter color)
Main functions: Self explanatory (Wet room)
Best Finish: Eggshell or Satin
