Glossy Paint and Matte Paint for Your Living Room


One of the things you have to consider when doing interior construction in New York is the type of paint you want to put over your walls. Of course, you should take into consideration the color and the type of finish that the paint will have once it has dried.

For the latter, you’ll have to consider glossy and matte paints. Let’s take a look at each one and see what their respective pros and cons are.

Matte paints are also known as “flat” paints. When light hits their surface, they evenly spread it across the wall in order to minimize light reflections. Their biggest advantage is when you want the room to be conducive for photography. But their biggest drawback is that they trap dirt and moisture.

So, if you want to do a bathroom remodel project, it’s best to avoid matte paints.

On the other hand, glossy paints include an upper layer of acrylic or oil in their composition. As a result, walls finished with glossy paint look shiny and elegant. Because of their slightly slippery constitution, glossy paints make it easy for you to clean the surface when the need arises. That’s also where their disadvantages lie – dirt and moisture are retained by the glossy layer and are, thus, easy to spot.
