Deciding on your finish
Our paints are available in a variety of finishes, from full matt to high gloss. The same paint colour can look completely different depending on the sheen level of the paint. For every interior wall emulsion or wood paint, you can identify its sheen level by using our numerical scale (which are typically noted at the end of the product names). Gloss level is measured on a scale of 0 (the lowest gloss level (meaning a perfectly matte surface), to the highest gloss level of 100 (corresponding to a highly glossy surface).
- With very low gloss levels (between 0%-4%), Full Matt (or flat / super / ceramic matt) paints are non-reflective, meaning they will soak up any light directed at them. This means they are great for walls and areas that have a lot of bumps or scratches (as they can easily conceal blemishes).
- Matt paints offer a non-reflective finish with no gloss or shine. With a low gloss level between 5%-10%, matt paints offer strong depth of colour and a smooth, velvety finish. If you're looking for hard-wearing coverage for high-traffic areas, our durable matt wall paints are for you.
- Semi-Matt paints (also known as eggshell paints) have a slightly higher gloss grade than Matt paints and provide a flat finish with a slight sheen (11-35%). This creates a low lustre finish that brings out more of the paint's colour than a flat sheen
- With gloss levels between 36-60%, Semi-Gloss paints offer a durable finish that be easily scrubbed clean of imperfections due to their high sheen level. This finish can also be an ideal choice for interior trim (such as stair railings and skirting boards), as the lustre draws attention to those details and sets them apart from the walls.
- Gloss paints are the ideal choice for the woodwork, doors and trimmings in your home. With gloss levels between 61-80%, they offer a high-shine finish that is tough, durable and easy to clean
