Eggshell paint is a type of paint that has a low sheen and a slight luster, resembling the texture and appearance of a chicken’s eggshell. It is often used for interior walls, trim, and ceilings, as well as for furniture and cabinetry. Eggshell paint provides a subtle glow to the paint color and hides imperfections in the wall, making it a popular choice for high-traffic areas where a matte finish may not be durable enough. Eggshell paint is also more washable and durable than a flat/matte finish, making it a good choice for families with children or pets. However, it may not be as easy to clean as a semi-gloss or high-gloss finish. Eggshell paint is often recommended for use in living rooms, dining rooms, and bedrooms, as well as in other areas where a low-sheen finish is desired.
