Choose your sheen based on how much traffic the area receives.
Flat (Matte) is a low-sheen paint with a easy-clean, non-reflective appearance that's ideal for low traffic areas and ceilings.
Flat Enamel has a low luster appearance and is great for low to moderate traffic areas, such as bedrooms.
Eggshell Enamel has a soft, velvety appearance and is a good choice for moderate traffic areas such as living rooms.
Satin Enamel if you desire a pearl-like appearance, and are painting moderate to high traffic areas or areas that have some exposure to moisture, such as kitchens.
Semi-Gloss Enamel if you desire a sleek, radiant sheen that is great from cabinets and trim, high-traffic areas and high-moisture areas.
Hi-Gloss Enamel creates a brilliant, shiny appearance with a glass-like finish. This is great for high-use surfaces.
