Satin wall paint produces a soft sheen and increased washability and moisture resistance. Due to the increase in sheen, extra care should be taken to properly prepare surface prior to painting to minimize unsightly spots. Remember, as the shine of a surface increases, any imperfections will also be more noticeable.
Often confused with other finishes, the difference between eggshell and satin paint is that satin delivers a higher gloss, while offering better stain resistance and durability than lower sheens, including eggshell.
Satin paint is ideal for areas that crave definition. Use its distinctive lustre to highlight windows, shutters, trim and even interior doors.
