How to Choose the Right Paint Finish!

Most people focus primarily on the color when considering a new paint job. However, the finish you select determines how the details will appear and can also change how easy the wall is to clean. In a sense, the higher the sheen, the shinier the results. Shine also determines durability. Flat paints have no shine while high-gloss is all about the polish. You’ve also got eggshell, semi-gloss, and satin. With so many options, it gets a little confusing. Of course, if you plan to work with painting companies in Tualatin, the professionals can help you make the right choice,

ESP Painting understands that you probably don’t know much about finishes. You focus on the color you want for a particular room, and that’s about as far as it goes. However, it’s not a big deal because these professionals know all about different paint sheens, which means you have the benefit of their years of experience. For example, the kitchen requires a paint that is easy to clean and durable. Therefore, it’s recommended to use a semi-gloss or high-gloss finish. Family rooms also need to be cleaned and are prone to high traffic; a satin coat might be best in this area.

Many painting contractors don’t even ask the homeowner what finish they desire because you’re not likely to know. They use their experience in the industry to choose the right one. However, it’s helpful to know what options there are and where they should be used. That way, you have a better idea of why a particular sheen is picked for a specific room. For example, the bedroom is a low-traffic area (in most cases,) and it needs high-pigment wall coverage to save money. A matte or flat finish is likely best here. As such, a dining room needs smooth-looking walls, so an eggshell sheen is appropriate here. Consider requesting an estimate to find out how much the paint and finish might cost you!
