Getting to Know Paint Finishes

Selecting a paint finish can be harder than you might think. When selecting the finish of your paint, you’ll need to consider the room’s character, high traffic areas in your home, cleaning, durability, and much more. The experts at Winterton Painting know the right questions to ask to guide you in making the right choice for your project. Here are a few guidelines that help when choosing a finish.


Flat, or Matte paint finishes are usually reserved for areas that require little to no cleaning. The soft and gentle flat finish is perfect for concealing flaws and older walls that show “character”. Flat may be a good choice for the Dining room, living room, and bedroom.


Satin finish paints are easy maintenance and are perfect for high traffic areas in your home. These paints are long-lasting, practical, and easy to clean. This finish is great for hallways and any room where little hands may leave fingerprints.


Semi-gloss finish is washable while durable and gives off a shine. It is the preferred paint for trim and cabinets. Because it is easy to clean and comes with mildew resistant options, it is also an excellent choice for high-moisture areas.


Gloss finish provides the highest level of shine and is the perfect choice for trim and other architectural highlights around the home.
