USE THE RIGHT PAINT FINISH

Ready to paint your home? Be sure to use the right finishes in each room and feature to make the best impact in your home. Using the wrong finishes can backfire for home owners if the wrong ones are used in the wrong spaces. Below, you'll find the most common finishes and recommendations on where they are best applied to.

- PAINT FINISHES - 

Flat is a low-sheen paint with a non-reflective finish that touches up well and hides minor surface imperfections.  It's ideal for low traffic areas, interior walls and ceilings.

Matte has a low luster reflective finish that is durable, easy to clean, touches up well, and also hides minor surface imperfections. It is great for low to moderate traffic areas, such as bedrooms, and interior walls.

Eggshell Enamel has a soft, velvety appearance and is a good choice for moderate traffic areas such as living rooms.

Satin Enamel if you desire a pearl-like appearance, and are painting moderate to high traffic areas or areas that have some exposure to moisture, such as kitchens.

Semi-Gloss Enamel if you desire a sleek, radiant sheen that is great from cabinets and trim, high-traffic areas and high-moisture areas.

Hi-Gloss Enamel creates a brilliant, shiny appearance with a glass-like finish. This is great for high-use surfaces.

My favorite color right now that I have seen in the modern flair homes of the Hamptons homes for sale is the different shades of gray. That's what's hot right now here and it just keeps everything clean, zen, and up to the buyers to spice it up if they feel ike it. One of the homes I love most is a DeVito home on 230 Bishops Lane, listed with Geoff Gifkins.So, if you are ever in the Hamptons and you see that there is an open house at that address, stop by and experience what a "modern-elevated" style home wityh "gray vibrancy" looks  and feels like.
