Finish Painting in Denver
When selecting a finish for the trim inside your home interiors, it is important to know several key factors that can help improve the overall quality and value of your Denver home. Our experts are here to guide you through the process of ensuring that your home's interior stands out and will have your guests complimenting the lovely warmth it provides. Trim painting can seem confusing with all the different choices. When browsing options for finish paint, there are several choices to select from. Matte paint, Matte-enamel paint, Eggshell paint, Satin Paint, Semi-Gloss Paint and lastly, Gloss Paint. Obviously there are different strokes for different folks, so having an expert's opinion to help you decide is certainly going to make things easier.
Matte Paint, which is often referred to as "flat" paint, is the most popular choice for interior walls and ceilings because it gives no shine to the surface it is applied to which allows for the other decorative elements in the room to become the focus. It ties will in just about any room of a home. It is also important to note that matte paint is great at hiding small imperfections that might otherwise stand out as an eye sore, such as small chips or cracks. This is great to keep in mind for potentially older homes with some wear and tear on the interior. On the downside, it can be a tad more difficult to clean things like hand prints and smudges off of matte paint. It is often easier to just touch up the paint to remove imperfections such as these.
As one would presume, Matte-enamel Paint is very similar to Matte Paint. While it hosts a flat finish and very little shine to it, the chemical make up of the paint itself allows for a film to develop on the exterior layer as it dries, which actually helps to make it much easier to clean. It is more durable, making it a bit more desirable for the rooms of your home that see the most traffic such as a walk way or entry way. These paints are often labeled as "washable" in a hardware store.
Eggshell Paint is a great selection for busy family homes because it is very easy to clean, but still isn't an excessive, eye-catching sheen that comes with some of the more lustrous finishes. The one downside to this finish is that, over time, it can begin to show cracks in the paint as it ages. We ensure that your interior walls are patched up and repaired before applying this type of trim finish to your Denver home.
Satin paint is sought after for its warm, almost velvety feel once it is dried. It's particularly good for trim, doorways and other framing elements inside your home. The durability of Satin paint makes it highly desirable for high traffic areas such as kitchens, bathrooms and entry ways. It is very easy to clean and highly resistant to chipping, scratching or cracking.
This paint is very similar to Satin paint, but offers extra sheen to reflect light. This, in turn, will cause the shades you select to appear darker than it would with Satin. This, like Satin, is also a great selection for rooms and interior walls that need to be cleaned often. It is also perfect for any design elements that you wish to highlight within the interior, such as kitchen cabinets or banisters.
This shiny, highly reflective surface of this paint makes it a great option for things like window or door trim, however it can also really bring a room to life by making it pop with the right setting.
