A semi-gloss finish is even glossier than a satin one, but it reflects a lot of light without being too over the top. Another tough finish that′s easy to scrub, it′s a smart choice for the kitchen and especially your backsplash. Glossier finishes tend to highlight imperfections in the wall, so this isn‵t the best option if your walls have a few dents and dings.
Before you begin painting, make sure to remove any cushions or fabric from the chair. If you′re unable to remove the cushions, cover them with plastic. Next, you′ll need to prepare the surface by sanding it with coarse-grit sandpaper. This will create a surface that the paint can really adhere to.
Since kitchens are such a busy part of a home and often need extra cleaning, a satin or semi-gloss finish is the best options. Satin and eggshell finishes are commonly believed to be the same, but in fact, satin is a bit shinier. Satin finishes are easy to clean and good at standing up to mildew, stains and dirt.
If you have a really large kitchen and very high ceilings, you can go with a more bold hue such as dark gray or navy blue. To avoid highlighting any imperfections on your ceiling, it's best to use a flat finish, but some interior designers like to use a glossy finish for new homes to reflect light and add some dimension to the space.
