What’s the Best Sheen for Each Room in the House?

Part of each painting project planning involves selecting the right sheen level for the room.  You wouldn’t want a high gloss paint on the walls of your bedroom, or would you?  Is matte paint alright for the bathroom?  These are questions that most homeowners struggle to answer, so we’ve put together a quick list of the ideal sheen levels for each room in your home.

The best sheens for interior rooms:

  • Kitchen: Eggshell, Low Lustre, Satin, Pearl, or Semi-gloss
  • Bathrooms: Eggshell, Low Lustre, Satin, Pearl, or Semi-gloss
  • Bedrooms: Flat, Matte, Eggshell, Low Lustre, Satin, or Pearl (TIP: Avoid painting Flat paint in young kids’ rooms – you won’t be able to successfully scrub away crayon marks or other toddler “wall art.”)
  • Living Room / Dining Room: Flat, Matte, Eggshell, Low Lustre, or Satin
  • Ceilings: Flat or Matte
  • Trim: Satin, Semi-gloss, Gloss, or High-gloss
  • Doors: Satin, Semi-gloss, Gloss, or High-gloss

The best sheens for your home’s exterior:

  • Doors & Windows: Low Lustre, Satin, Pearl, Semi-gloss, Medium Lustre, Gloss, or High-gloss
  • Trim & Accents: Low Lustre, Satin, Pearl, Semi-gloss, Medium Lustre, Gloss, or High-gloss
  • Siding: Flat, Low Lustre, or Satin
