Matte Paint

It’s not uncommon to immediately associate matte paint with those dreaded school chalk boards from our childhood. Despite being quite utilitarian, the trend has now thankfully evolved past that one dimensional function and entered lifestyles, design and most importantly colour!
Matte is a finish that has very little to no sheen. In the same family of finishes as flat and eggshell, matte can be used for you interior painting needs. However, be mindful that once it is scuffed, it is hard to return back to its original state.
But don’t let that deter you from being creative. Here are some interiors with flat and semi gloss stripes that are subtle yet noticeable.
