Soft Sheen Paints
Soft sheen and low sheen offer a mid-gloss paint finish, offering a subtle sheen but not quite a shine.
Soft sheen wall paints include paints marketed with a silk paint finish. Satinwood or satin finish paints are also soft sheen or low sheen paints designed for use on wood or metal.
Soft sheen paints are a good choice for areas where there may be some moisture, such as bathrooms, or where cleaning is important, like kitchens, as well as high traffic areas.
Their slightly glossy appearance tends to highlight surface imperfections more than flatter paints, and if improperly applied brush strokes will be visible.
