This is useful in places that have a tendency to get wet like the bathroom or the children’s room because it is washable. The bad side to using this finish is that is it difficult to repaint the area should it need it. The luster looses color at some time and if you have to repaint the area the newer parts will be shiner that the old parts.
If you use a semi-gloss paint finish the end results will be glossier. You usually use this kind of finish with wooden furnishings, like the doors, windows and shelves.
When you use a flat paint finish, it sounds like the wording of the name, flat, but it makes the blemishes or dirt disappear. It’s the cheapest of the three and makes it the best choice for most of your painting projects.
