When picking out paint at your local hardware store, you’ll probably be asked what type of paint sheen you’d like to have. There are typically five options you can choose from, from flat all the way to a high-gloss and everything in between. Which paint should you choose? To help you pick the best paint sheen for your home, here’s what you need to know.
The glossiness or sheen of a paint is dependent on the size of the paint particles in the paint itself. So, the smaller the paint particles, the glossier the paint. Additionally, the amount of paint-resin or binder in the paint also affects how glossy the paint is; the more binder in the paint, the glossier the paint will be. The main difference here is that a Gloss paint will be shinier, more resistant to moisture, and be easier to clean.
This is the ultimate question, “what paint sheen should I choose?” Sadly, there is no one right answer because the type of paint sheen you choose will depend on what you are using the paint for.
