Picking the perfect paint for your walls is a choice between beauty and maintenance. To learn where the balance point is - consider these differences. Gloss enamels provide a durable finish but highlight imperfections easily. For best results, use semi-gloss paints on trim and flat paint on walls and ceilings. For new work, be sure to apply a primer first. Lastly - always buy the best paint you can afford. Painting is mostly labor and the best paint means less work and a longer lasting paint job.
