5 types of paint

- Satin paint - Matt option - Velvet paint - Shiny effect - Lacquered paint

1. A satin paint

A darling of its ladies, satin paint is on the highest place of the podium thanks to its many advantages. Washable, resistant to water and humidity, it can be applied to the four corners of the house to offer a slightly shiny effect that subtly reflects natural and artificial light. For obvious reasons, it remains the most used paint by individuals, so no particular restriction for this model. * For which parts? Kitchen, bathroom or passageways. * Be careful: choose the lighting points well, the satin type reflects the light and therefore the small defects of the walls.

2. The mat option

The matt paint has a velvety appearance that absorbs light. On the other hand, small everyday shocks are more visible with this paint - to be avoided in hallways or children's rooms for example. On the effect side, it offers a fluffy impression on the walls to wrap the room in a cocoon, ideal when looking for a cozy result. * For which rooms: Living room, master bedroom or reading corner for example. It can be very aesthetic used in simple bed or desk framing to delimit the space gently. * Be careful to choose the right color because the mat remains a very fragile finish - the darker the shade the more the defects will be visible in the event of an accident.

3. Velvet paint

The so-called “velvet” paint is a compromise between matt paint and satin paint. It offers all the advantages of satin paint - easy maintenance by the key, with an effect very close to matt paint. More resistant, it adapts better to different rooms in the house. The perfect middle ground when looking for the cocooning effect with the advantage of a robust coating. * For which parts? All except the bathrooms. It can provide a touch of character to a corridor to accentuate its depth while retaining good light. * Beware of humidity because, although resistant, the velvet paint is not invincible against water.

4. The brilliant effect

The gloss paint offers very bright colors thanks to its sparkling appearance. It is adequate to bring out certain volume of your interior such as architectural elements - moldings, door frames or fireplace mantel for example. Also washable, it does not fear humidity. * For which parts? Kitchen and bathrooms or any surface delimited in the house like a wall section on four to vary the effects in a room. * Be careful to ensure that the painted wall is clean to obtain a flawless effect.

5. Lacquered paint

Lacquered paint is THE luminous paint par excellence. An intense sparkle that brings a glitzy effect to magnify places or furniture effectively. The glossy rendering provides depth and shine to the selected shade to give more character to the colors of your interior. It remains resistant and is maintained with ease for use in every room of the house. * For which parts? All of them! As ideal for a bathroom as for a passageway. * Attention to its smooth and taut rendering which imposes an irreproachable preparation of the wall section so as not to risk obtaining shadow areas on the latter.
