Different Types of Interior Wall Paints !

There are several different types of interior wall paints, and the more you know about appropriate paintable surfaces and the effects that paint can achieve, the easier it is to make the right choice. It’s also feasible to mix different types of interior wall paint within a room, but you should know what you’re doing.

1. Matte Paint

Matte color is the most common of interior wall paints. There’s no shine or sheen to the finish, making it ideal for walls and ceilings where you don't want any visual distractions. It’s easy to apply, although it can often take more than a single coat to create a good solid color. Matte paint can be applied with a brush or roller and works well covering imperfections on your walls. This makes it ideal for older houses. On the downside, matte paint is easily marked. Although some marks can be removed with a damp cloth, matte paint needs regular retouching.

2. Matte Enamel
