Understanding Paint Sheen

Paint sheen refers to the level of glossiness or shine in a paint finish. Different sheen levels offer varying benefits:

1. Flat/Matte


  • Provides a smooth, non-reflective finish ideal for hiding imperfections on walls and ceilings.

  • Creates a soft, velvety appearance that adds depth to bold colors.

  • Suitable for low-traffic areas such as bedrooms and dining rooms.


  • Less washable than higher sheen finishes; may require touch-ups.

2. Eggshell


  • Offers a subtle sheen that adds warmth and depth to walls.

  • More washable than flat/matte finishes, making it suitable for living rooms and hallways.

  • Helps to resist stains and scuff marks.


  • May not hide imperfections as well as flat/matte finishes.

3. Satin


  • Provides a soft, velvety finish with a gentle sheen.

  • Highly washable and durable, making it ideal for kitchens, bathrooms, and children's rooms.

  • Reflects light to brighten spaces without being too glossy.


  • May highlight surface imperfections more than lower sheen finishes.

4. Semi-Gloss


  • Offers a noticeable sheen that adds elegance and sophistication.

  • Highly durable and easy to clean, making it suitable for trim, doors, and cabinets.

  • Resists moisture and stains, making it ideal for high-traffic areas.


  • Reflects more light, which can emphasize surface flaws if not properly prepared.

5. Gloss


  • Provides a shiny, reflective finish that adds drama and depth.
