Interior Latex Paint

Flat
Matte
Semi Gloss
Eggshell
Gloss

We have kids and want something that looks good and is washable without leaving wipe marks from cleanup. We used cheap paint and learned a valuable lesson last time.

Have always used eggshell but have heard there is a trent towards using flat paint. I know Gloss inside is out of the question but I will roll it in the garage for water resistance.

Discuss...

i prefer flat (shows less imperfections, ..is less shiny), ...i use behr paint from home depot, ..i think it's pretty good, their flat paint is washable IMO, ..but if you expect a lot of dings from kids/etc, i'd go w/ the eggshell finish... only use semi-gloss or gloss for trim/etc...

Okay here's where me working at home depot comes in handy. I worked in the paint department.

We carried Behr, Glidden, America's Finest, and Speedwall.
The last three brands are all under Glidden.

There's: Flat, Flat Enamel (Flat but washable), Eggshell, Satin, Semigloss, High gloss

Flat is what most people do in bedrooms. It also doesn't show imperfections like other sheens.

If you have kids the MINIMUM i recommend is eggshell, the higher "sheen" you get, the easier it is to wash. If they like to touch everything I'd go with eggshell if not satin (not that shiny).

ALSO, the higher the sheen, the more water resistant it is.

Personally I like the Behr regular paint and paint+primer paints before Glidden.


For garage paint, I'd just use speedwall semigloss. It's cheap and washable.

Yep. And sem-gloss for trim. Just re-painted my trim last weekend. Use Behr Ultra. Primer/Paint in one.

I prefer Sherwin Williams super paint flat personally. Flat doesn't show the imperfections in the drywall. It's a much better paint than Behr IMO. Also, in my experience of all the painting I've done with it, (with the exception of red) it will cover in one coat without the need of all that Paint and Primer in one bullshit everyone is advertising on TV.

I have cleaned the walls numerous times with the flat and it has come clean. My golden retriever likes to rub against the walls to scratch his back and he leaves greasy "rings" around the rooms from the oils in his hair. I just use a normal sponge and a little Mr. Clean mixed with water and wipe them down.

Most expensive paint you can afford. Really good paintbrush/roller Put on two coats use semi-gloss.

Go to Dulux and get their diamond eggshell brand. Its super durable, washable and covers really well. Its a little pricey but in the end a bedroom should take at most 2 gallons for 2 coats so it won't be that bad.

For coverage, paint should go 400 sq ft a gallon, second coat is 60-80% the amount of paint.

i've been using behr ultra of late... i'm very happy w/ it, .. it is expensive, ..but if you're going to prime anyway, it's a nice/easy way of doing it... typically i do two coats of this stuff, ...it is a little more viscous than regular paint, so make sure you stir it up really well before using, ..sometimes the primer component kind of settles out from the paint in the can over time, so good mixing is essential..

We used it on our condo as well. Two coats pretty much covered everything.

Glidden sucks... you don't get what you pay for; it doesn't cover well. Olympic is good and so is Dutch Boy. Everyone says Behr is great, but it does cost a lot more. You should use satin or semi gloss.

I like Olympic low VOC. You can paint all day and barely smell it at all. Won't run you out of the house from fumes. All my walls are satin sheen and come clean good with a Mr Clean magic eraser.
