How to Select the Right Paint Sheen for Your Home

Are you selecting the right “sheen” for your painting needs?
ann arbor interior painting
Which sheen is best for bumps and cracks?

Which sheen is easy to clean?

Which sheen helps keep moisture out?

Paint finish or “sheen” means the amount of light a paint will reflect when it’s dry. There are five different paint sheens including “matte” or flat, “eggshell,” “satin,” “semi-gloss,” and “gloss.” 

Matte/Flat - perfect on walls that are worn with bumps and cracks. Perfect for bedrooms! 

Eggshell – more durable than flat or matte sheens and easier to wash. Perfect for living rooms, hallways and dining rooms.

Satin – provides the best protections and wash ability. Perfect for kitchens and bathrooms. 

Semi-Gloss – helps keep moisture out and easier to clean than matte, eggshell and satin sheens. Perfect for kitchens and bathrooms.

Gloss - rarely used in interior spaces, however, it’s often appropriate for painting furniture and floors. 

If you want to paint your house and ensure that it gets done right the first time, hire one of the expert Ann Arbor interior painting companies, like Mussio Painting. Our path to success is based on being laser focused on incredible detail.

The Psychology of Color

Does seeing a certain color lift your spirit, boost your energy, or make you feel at home?

Color can evoke many different emotions. Color can make us feel happy, sad, and energized, or they can evoke mystery or calmness.

According to Benjamin Moore, when you “imagine (or reimagine) a room, remember the influence color will have on the mood of the space. The effect may be subtle or dramatic. It can encourage tranquility or boost energy, even make you feel optimistic or more introspective.

To begin to understand color's emotional impact, start with these color groups:

Pales - Their light, airy qualities make pale hues feel uplifting.

Neutrals - It's no surprise that earthy, nuanced colors keep you grounded.

Whites - Pure and pristine, these timeless colors offer a blank canvas to express your style.

Deeps - Bring drama to a room with colors that are rich and mysterious.”

With so many choices and trends, it can be hard to perfect what you want out of the space you’re redecorating. There are lots of resources to get ideas, including websites like Pinterest and Houzz.com. Show us your favorite paint color ideas, and we can help make them a reality!
