How to choose the right type of paint

There are so many different colors of paint; but the variety of paint types is just as comprehensive. From flat, all the way to high gloss, and the big range in between… are you making the right choice for your home? Seb and Darrin share a few tips that can help you pick the perfect type of paint for your home.

High gloss

High gloss is the easiest to clean. It reflects the most light, and is also the hardest and most durable type of paint.

First choose the type

Remember, your indoor lighting is going to be different from the exterior. There’s a difference between daylight and internal lighting.
