Finding the Right Sheen for the Job

In simple terms, sheen refers to the glossiness of the paint finish. High gloss formulas will dry shiny and bold, probably not the best choice for a bedroom paint color that’s intended to be a relaxing oasis. And a soft delicate eggshell finish is likely to disappoint in a busy entryway that gets scuff marks from shoes on a daily basis. The section below defines the most common paint sheens and gives some suggestions of the best places to use them so you get the results you want from your paint job.

Flat or Matte Paint Sheen

  • Provides little to no shine
  • Hides minor wall imperfections
  • Best for low-traffic areas like dining rooms or guest bedrooms

Eggshell Paint Sheen

  • More scrubbable than a flat sheen
  • Can be wiped clean easily
  • Good for bedroom and living rooms

Satin Paint Sheen

  • Durable and easy to clean
  • Less shine than semi-gloss
  • Works in almost any room

Semi-Gloss Paint Sheen

  • Offers maximum durability so it’s great for homes with kids and pets
  • Highlights wall imperfections more than lower sheens
  • Often used in high-moisture rooms like bathrooms

High-Gloss Paint Sheen

  • Highly reflective
  • Works well for showing off trim and moulding details
  • Great choice for doors and cabinets
