Which finish?

Matte

For a solid, flat and elegant finish that is easy to touch up when required, matte paint is ideal for creating a gentle, soothing finish. It helps to conceal flaws too, making it a good choice for older walls with "character".


Eggshell

Has slightly more lustre than a matte finish, low-sheen rather than shiny. This attractive finish resists stains better than matte paint and is easier to maintain.


Silk

Creates an attractive and durable high-sheen finish, ideal for if you want to make a room look bigger. While it is the easiest to clean (just wipe with a damp cloth), silk paint’s light reflecting properties do make it more difficult to touch up because any difference in sheen will be apparent. It will make imperfections in your walls more noticeable, so it is worth investing a bit of extra time on surface preparation to make your walls as smooth as possible.


Gloss

Even our gloss paint is 100% zero-VOC! An easy-to-apply, non-drip antibacterial gloss paint that provides a hardwearing, wipe-clean finish for interior and exterior wood and metal. (Please note, the gloss does not share the formaldehyde-absorbing properties of the emulsion paint.)
