5. Matt finish

For areas like your bedroom or lounge using a matte finish paint is worth considering. Surfaces lined with such alternatives do not reflect any light which gives the room a calm and cozy feel. Matte finish paint also goes well with dark colour furniture or decoration themes.

6. Glossy paint
