Choosing a Paint Sheen: General Overview

Choosing a Paint Sheen

Now that you have picked out your paint colors in Spokane, it’s time to pick a paint sheen. How do we do this?  Below is the types of paint sheens you can choose from:

Flat

 

Flat finishes are harder to clean but they are excellent at hiding imperfections and flaws in both walls and ceilings. These finishes are perfect for bedrooms ( Not Children’s bedrooms) or other types of low traffic areas in your house.

 

Eggshell

 

The name pretty much says it for this finish. It  will look  like the outer  shell of eggs. Eggshell is more durable and cleans much easier than a flat finish does. Dining and Living rooms are where you can use this finish.

 

Satin

Satin finish is easy to clean and works great for areas that tend to get a lot of traffic and  could be prone to scratches and scuff marks like  hallways do. Satin finishes are also great for children and family rooms. It is easy to clean but difficult to touch up.

 

Semi-Gloss

 

The lasting choice for kitchens and bathrooms is a semi-gloss finish. It handles moisture and scuffs better than any other finish. It’s  easy to clean and durability makes it a great choice for doors, windows and trim.

 

High-Gloss

 

Rarely is High gloss used on walls as it is just too shiny and would show every imperfection in the wall. It is also the easiest to clean and very durable. Excellent  for wood trim and cabinets where you want reflective properties.

 

Planning for your interior paint upgrade

Planning for your interior paint upgrade

 

Once you decide to upgrade your home by splashing on a fresh coat of paint, it’s important to remember that having a home’s interior painted is not the same as having the exterior done.  There are several things to consider to make the interior painting upgrade the best experience possible.  To get the job done with the least amount of time, trouble, and money, most Spokane residents turn to the Pros.  Hiring a reputable Interior painting contractor like Spokane Painting Pros is key.  Preparation and good communication, beforehand and throughout, can ensure that you get the exact results you’re looking for.

Determine exactly what you want to have painted

 

Homeowners will benefit from identifying all of the walls, trim, and other areas that they wish to have painted.  Not considering the whole project until it has begun often leads to additional time and money.  Even the best painters cannot provide an accurate estimate or deadline if the homeowner is not planful and specific.  The thorough bidding process offered by Spokane Painting Pros can alleviate these potential pitfalls.

 

Specify the specifics!

 

No doubt, you as homeowner have specific expectations for upgrading the home’s interior paint.  Create a list of those areas and items that you wish to have painted, as well as how many coats you expect, and other particulars that you are envisioning.  Again, good, clear communication will assist in meeting both expectations and deadlines.  Here is where you may detail if you, for instance, want the painters to move the furniture and/or return items to how they found them, or if you expect furnishings to be covered, or special textures made to the walls.  It is also fine if you as homeower are not certain about these specifics.  With Spokane Painting Pros, we will work with you to determine what will best meet your needs and leave you with the highest level of satisfaction.
