Once you choose the color for your home, you need to decide the paint finish and texture. This can be pretty simple, but I often find this decision stumps everyone when the question is asked. There are different textures for different paint manufactures, but basically there are 4 different finishes.
Matt or Flat – This is a dusty, modern finish paint. It doesn’t have any reflection or shine.It creates a soft backdrop and is perfect for bright spaces and highlighting art.Flat also has the most pigment, so it will show color differently than other finishes.If you have bumps or poorly finished walls, flat is a great choice.
The downside of the flat is that stains or finger marks are difficult to remove. Some paint manufacture boasts the cleanup power of a flat paint, but the makeup of a flat paint is differently than the other finishes.
I always spec flat for a ceiling, the ceiling lights will bounce off any sheen and I don’t recommend this unless it is a specific look you are going for.
