Shine Scale

Good Housekeeping (South Africa) - - EXPERT ADVICE -

The top fin­ishes you’ll find at the shop and where they work best. MATT: This no-shine fin­ish re­flects paint’s true colour and is the most eco­nom­i­cal. It scuffs eas­ily, but is sim­ple to touch up. Use it on big spa­ces that don’t get a lot of ac­tion, like ceil­ings. EGGSHELL: A very pop­u­lar fin­ish, this low-shine op­tion is harder to scuff and eas­ier to clean. SATIN: This sheen is sim­i­lar in lus­tre to eggshell, but holds up bet­ter to mois­ture, so it’s ideal for bath­rooms. SEMIGLOSS: This shiny fin­ish is scratch- and scuff–proof, but doesn’t hide de­fects well. Use on ar­eas that get more wear and tear, like doors and cab­i­nets.
