With the warmer weather here in Asheville, we tend to get the itch to take on home projects. Paint is one of the easiest ways to change the feel of a room—or even an entire home. A fresh coat of paint in a trendy color can update a room in an instant. Choosing the perfect color is only one aspect of picking the right paint; the finish or sheen is also important to the look and feel of the space. Read on to get our tips for determining the right Asheville home paint finish!
Flat finishes are exactly like it sounds – flat. There is no sheen at all. Today’s matte finishes reflect rich tones and are much more luxurious than the dull finishes of the past. Flat paint finishes are perfect in modern spaces and give off a touch of elegance. Use for:
- Dining Rooms
- Formal Living Rooms
- Adult Bedrooms
Satin finishes have just a slight sheen. These finishes reflect the light softly and provide a richer look and feel than flat paint. Satin finishes are great for high traffic areas in your Asheville home such as:
- Family/Living Rooms
- Children’s Bedrooms
Semi-gloss provides even more shine to the wells. These paints can make a room seem larger by providing a slight gleam from the painted surfaces. Easy to clean, a semi-gloss paint works well in areas frequently cleaned such as:
- Closet Doors and Cabinets
- Stair Rails and Banisters
A high gloss paint is the brightest available. These paints bring out the truest color of the paint and provide a durable finish for areas you wish to highlight. A high gloss paint works well for accent walls and rooms that you want to make a big statement. Gloss is most popularly used for:
- Wood Trim
Each of these types of paint finishes has variations as well. Home paints on the market today are more luxurious with deep, rich pigments and more durable elements. Choosing the right color and finish can bring freshness and modernity to any room or home.
