Glossy paints have a silkier finish, pleasing to the eye and touch, and are easily washable, although more expensive than the rest. Both water-based paints (latex) and oil (enamel) come with a satin finish.
The glossy water-based paints are ideal for walls while glazes are used for openings, wood and metals.
If we like the glossy termination, you must know that the glossy paints are prone to make all the imperfections of the wall, so we recommend a thorough preparation of the walls and an application for skilled labor also is recommended only in new walls or in very good condition. Also keep in mind that are fast drying, so your application should be avoided on days of extreme heat or humidity.
Latex paints and glazes are also available in matte finish. The flat latex is the most used in walls, plaster and gypsum. It is cheaper, better disguises imperfections (ideal for old walls and irregular) and requires less preparation of the wall. The downside is that it is not as washable as gloss paint.
Matt glazes are used only in openings, wood and metals. They are less resistant to rubbing and washing or glossy finishes.
Always bright paints and oil used in walls, but in openings, wood and metals. Exceptionally they are used for walls in public places, schools, hospitals. They are resistant, completely washable but not very decorative.
