Which paint sheen should I choose?

Paint sheens will have an aesthetic purpose and a practical purpose. Choose a sheen that you like but keep in mind that higher interior sheens are more washable and resist marking better. Generally, we use flats for ceilings; eggshell or satin for walls; satin or semi-gloss for woodwork. Most of our exterior projects are done with satin or semi-gloss to ensure more durability.
