Choosing the Right Paint for Your Interior

Posted on Tuesday, 27 December 2016

While the exterior of your home is important for its curb appeal, the interior is where you will spend most of your time and where you want it to look the best. A huge part of your home’s appeal—inside and out—is the paint you choose. This includes the color, texture and finish. When you are considering paint options for your interior house painters in Plymouth, these three options are some of the most popular options, and you can choose the one that best fits your style and your home’s decor.


Gloss is one of the most common choices for interior painting. As the name would suggest, it creates a high shine effect on walls, which can be attractive, but it can also have some disadvantages. If there are any flaws or patches on the wall, for example, a gloss paint will highlight and expose them. In order to prevent this, and in order to achieve full coverage, house painters in Plymouth will typically need to apply several coats of a gloss paint for the achieved effect.


Matte paint is as popular if not more so than gloss paint. There is no discernible shine to this paint option, and this can make it ideal for walls where you do not want to draw any additional attention to the walls. It is easily applied to a wall, but if you select a darker color, house painters in Plymouth may need to apply several coats in order to achieve the full vivacity of the color. It is ideal nonetheless if you need to cover flaws on the wall and create a clean, simple look.


Satin is less popular than matte or gloss, but it is still a great option for many homes. Its finish is shinier than matte but not as shiny as gloss. It can be easily cleaned, too, but much like a gloss paint, it will exacerbate the visibility of any flaws on your walls.
