What You Need to Know About the Most Popular Kinds of Paint

Posted on Wednesday, 23 August 2017

Painter in Southern Manchester, MA

If you are planning to paint your home's interior, you might head to the hardware store with a color picked out but find yourself stumped when it's time to select a finish. There are a variety of choices available, and you should be well-informed before choosing one. These are the top three most popular as well as the basic facts you need to know about each if you plan to hire a painter in southern Manchester.


Flat paint-as the name suggests-is an entirely matte finish that will not have any shininess after it fully dries. This means that the paint absorbs light easily and will not readily display and defects or damage. Many people use this paint because it looks attractive in a range of different colors. One downside, however, is the fact that it can be difficult to keep clean over time.


Unlike flat finishes, eggshell offers a minimal sheen that many people find attractive. This feature has an appealing aesthetic, and it also makes the wall much easier to keep clean. A painter in southern Manchester would likely recommend that an eggshell finish be used in one of the following areas of your home:


Satin is the shiniest of these, and it creates an obvious sheen that deflects light. This deflection can make flaws in the wall more visible, but the high sheen makes it the easiest to clean. It is generally considered to be the most durable, but cleaning it too frequently or harshly can eventually wear off the satin sheen that gives it these benefits. Hiring a professional painter in southern Manchester can ensure you get quality results no matter which finish you select.
