Types of Paint
If you’re new to painting or are not sure what your options are then paint terms can be quite daunting. You may come across the term emulsion or emulsion paint.
This typically refers to paint used for walls and ceilings which is water based with vinyl or acrylic added to it. It is available in various finishes, with the most popular options being gloss and matte. A gloss finish, as the name implies, provides a shiny and glossy appearance, while a matte finish offers a flat yet solid look.
Another popular painting term, especially in the rustic décor world, is chalk paint. Chalk paint gives a uniquely strong matt look and is very popular not just on walls but furniture too.
