Once you've picked the color of your room, you'll want to decide how much sheen - that is how shiny - you want the paint to be.
There are basically 4 different amounts of sheen: flat, satin, semigloss, and gloss. Sheen means the level of gloss in your paint. Flat has the lowest level, with a smooth matte finish. However, it's also the hardest to clean. It's best for low traffic areas. Satin bring warmth and depth to a space and it's easier to clean than flat. Satin works for most rooms. Semigloss gives a noticeable shine. It's easy to clean and great for kids rooms, kitchens, and baths. But semigloss will point up imperfections. Gloss is last. It's shiny, tough, and durable; it's best for baseboards, doors, and trim - areas with a lot of wear and tear. You can also use it somewhere you want to draw attention.
