How to select paint sheen?

January 31, 2023


Sheen in paint is the level of gloss or shine in the finish of a paint job. Choosing the right sheen is important as it can affect the overall look of a room, the durability of the paint, and how easy it is to clean. At Light It Up Painting, we offer a range of sheen options from flat to semi-gloss, and we’re here to help you choose the right one for your space.

Flat paint, also known as matte, has no shine and is a good choice for low-traffic areas such as bedrooms or living rooms. Flat paint is also great for hiding imperfections in walls as it does not reflect light. On the other hand, semi-gloss paint has a slight shine and is more durable and easier to clean. This makes it a great option for areas that see more wear and tear such as kitchens, bathrooms, and trims.

When deciding on a sheen, it's important to consider the amount of natural light in the room, the intended use of the space, and your personal style. Our professional painters will be happy to help you weigh the pros and cons of each sheen option and recommend the best one for your specific needs.
