What is flat paint?
Flat paint has more pigment than any other finish, it's also called matte paint. It's non-reflective, so the paint will soak up any light directed at it. Flat paint tends to be easier to apply than other finishes, and is also usually a less expensive option.
When should I be using flat paint?
You should be using flat paint on walls and areas that have a lot of bumps, scratches, or holes. Since it can conceal these blemishes easily, it'll be the one paint finish you'll want to be using. It's best for low-traffic rooms that have a ton of light, like offices and more formal rooms, like dining rooms, for a more elegant and delicate finish.
When should I not be using flat paint?
We do not recommend using flat paint on high-traffic areas, like bedrooms, kitchens, and bathrooms because it's the hardest to clean. Also, flat paint is not resistant to moisture, making it not a suitable choice for a bathroom wall.
