Putting Shiplap on back wall of 1/2 bath. Going with white and I was going to go satin, but I am seeing a lot of eggshell?
Here's a couple of links comparing satin with eggshell.
'Hope the info helps you with your decision.
Hello Nicollesimmons, hope this link helps you decide which is better, https://www.thepaintshed.com/tips-advice/how-to-choose-the-right-paint-for-a-bathroom/
Hope this helps, but whatever you decide will be best
Use a satin or semi-gloss sheen.
For a bathroom where you will have steam - Satin or Eggshell, what ever you like the look of best, so long as they are wipeable. I must admit I have used both myself, it really is all about what you like the look of in the particular room you are doing. Make sure your Extractor fan system is able to cope in this room....
I would do semigloss. Semiglosss is what I use for any moldings.
Most people go with a flat or eggshell finish but the finish you choose is up to you. Satin will work but it is a bit shinier than eggshell. Somewhere like that might be fine but satin doesn't hold up as well to scrubbing.
It depends on the look you want. You may want to go with a semi-gloss paint for easier wipe down in a bathroom area.
Whatever paint finish you select, make sure the paint is for bathroom, such as Benjamin Moore Aura. Unless you have a powerful bath exhaust fan to remove all of the humidity, you may find yourself re-doing this job. Ideally, a humidity sensing fan is best.
Yes semi gloss bath and kitchen paint as splashes from the sink will be easier to wipe clean.
You can pick whatever sheen you’d like, there are no hard rules. It depends on what you’d prefer. Try testing the sheens first, see what looks best once dry.
I think for a bathroom Satin would be a better choice because of steam.
As Oliva said, use a kitchen/bath paint. With a half bath you don't have to worry to much about moisture, but still go with a bath paint. They are more durable for frequent cleaning.
Definitely don't use satin. Eggshell or matte.
Hi Nicholle: Satin is glossier, adding more depth to small spaces. Satin reflects slightly more light than eggshell and has a soft shimmer similar to that of velvet. The shinier the surface, the more shadows you get with bumps in the paint and it shows more of the defects. But, not so much as an enamel. Both would work well in your little room. I'd go with the satin :) Good luck
Yeah - I'd go with eggshell!
Satin and egg shell are similar both have a glare
