Wall Paint

1. What room are you painting?

Flat sheen is a matte coating that hides minor dents and nicks. It's ideal for low-traffic areas. Flat sheens aren't recommended for kitchens, bathrooms, trim, hallways or kids' rooms.

Semi-gloss sheen gives you maximum durability. It’s generally used for kids' rooms, bathrooms and trim.

Eggshell/Satin sheen is a smooth finish with a subtle sheen. Washable and scrubbable, it's great in just about any room.
