Paint finishes?? Matte or eggshell
Danielle BrandtSeptember 3, 2014
What type of finish for paint on light colored walks? We were told that matte is easier to touch up if needed. We are also concerned about how much light is absorbed. Any advice would be appreciated thanks.

I prefer a Matte finish, the paint always looks more sophisticated....and I like semi-gloss for a flat ceiling...brings in light.

If the walls are in great shape, no patches, smooth, then an eggshell or satin finish is nice. Matte/flat finishes hide imperfections. Same goes for ceilings, though I despise painting a low ceiling with a flat finish... Good Luck!

Sherwin Williams has a "low sheen" finish in some of their paints. It's in between and I really like it.
