Sometimes walking into a paint store can be like walking onto another planet with all the options available. So, that’s why we like to break it down for you before you even set a foot through our doors! And if you still have questions — our helpful staff are extremely knowledgable and can figure out the rest for ya!
This week: different types of paint.
Flat paints (matte): This paint has a nonreflective surface when dry. This type of paint is helps make a surface appear smooth and uniform.
Eggshell and satin finish: This style of paint has a little more sheen than flat paints, but don’t have that shiny finish either. Easy to clean, too!
Semi-gloss and high-glass: Best paints for surfaces that get dirty often and need some extra love in the cleaning department: aka good paint for areas that are wiped frequently such as the kitchen! High-gloss paints also have the most stain-resistant finishes — perfect for a child’s room or playroom where the walls aren’t safe from dirty hands (& feet)!
Oil-base paints: Best used on chalky sufaces or surfaces already painted with oil-base paints!
