Matte Finish

Ideal when you are looking to cover flaws or minimize light reflection. It helps hide minor imperfections you might find on your walls.

Satin Finish

Great for high-traffic areas, as it's extremely durable and easy to wipe. It gives off a medium gloss appearance, great for bathrooms and laundry rooms.

Gloss Finish

Extremely high shine, and the most washable and durable finish. Perfect for cabinets and doors.


An extremely easy faux finish! Grab a painting sponge and two to three colors of some glaze paint. Use the sponge to dab on the paint & layer the colors.
