Glidden® Total Interior and Exterior Paints

Take Charge of Faded Exteriors

Tackling the fading paint on the outside of your home may seem like a huge chore. Glidden Total makes it easier by combining paint and primer so you can just dive on in. Plus, the paint can be removed with soap and water, so if you make a mistake cutting in or accidently get some in the wrong area, it’s an easy clean up. Just make sure you get to it before it dries. Glidden paint formulas offer great features, like durability and a mildew-resistant coating, which means you've got great options whatever your paint job. It’s even able to be applied in cooler weather and resists fading, cracking, and peeling.

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. It’s 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

  • Good for bedroom and living rooms

Satin Paint Sheen
