Little Greene Paint Finishes

Choosing the right paint finish for your interior project depends on the look, durability, and ambiance you want.

There’s a basic rule of thumb to follow when choosing paint sheens: The higher the sheen, the higher the shine — and the higher the shine, the more durable it will be. Flat paint has no shine; high-gloss is all shine. In between are eggshell, satin, and semi-gloss, each with its own practical and decorative job to do.

Below is a list of the various paint finishes available from Little Greene Paint Company. Select the paint finish you are interested in to see a brief descrption.
