Paint Finishes

Behind every new shade and paint-effect trend is a paint finish. Figuring out which paint to use, and where, can be difficult. We know this because we’re often asked for advice by our customers. On one hand, paint finishes of all kinds have become versatile with the introduction of better quality water-based paints, but if you’re trying to create a specific effect, you do need to know the differences between the main finishes, so here is a introduction to gloss, satinwood and eggshell finish paints.


Gloss creates a high sheen finish that lasts. It is more durable than other paint finishes and for this reason it’s the most popular choice for high wear areas like doors, where gloss wood paints are the natural choice. Gloss paint is also commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms where surfaces need to be able to withstand more wear and tear. If you are looking for an exterior paint, gloss should be your first choice because of its durability.


A mid-sheen finish is best achieved with satinwood paint, which is used for interior painting for durability. When it comes to painting windowsills and skirting boards, satinwood is becoming an increasingly popular choice because it tends to retain a bright white colour longer than gloss paints, though water-based glosses now perform well in this area. You can more often than not skip the undercoat by using satin gloss too.


More matte than gloss or satinwood, subtler eggshell paint is another top choice for interiors. If you want to create a shabby chic or period-style finish, eggshell may be your best paint partner. It’s great on plasterboard, which makes it very compatible with modern homes and it can be used on wood and metal too. It’s also a good base for layering paint effects.
Still not sure what to choose? Get in touch and we’ll be happy to talk you through which materials will be most suitable for your interiors or exterior painting projects.
