Semi-Gloss and satin and matte or flat finishes are highly recommended for the walls of a commercial property
Semi-Gloss and Satin:These finishes are less shiny than full-on gloss paint. They can withstand washing but intense scrubbing may wear the finish. Stairwells, entrances and trims may benefit from these finishes.
Matte or Flat:These finishes are great for light-use areas or walls that have imperfections. Matte finish has a slightly higher gloss component than a flat finish. For areas that need a warm, distraction-free finish such as a boardroom or conference room, a flat finish is recommended.
