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. It is water based with vinyl or acrylic added to it. It can come in a variety of finishes, the most common being gloss, which the name suggests gives a shiny and glossy finish and matt, which gives a flat yet solid finish.
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.
