What Is A Matte Finish Paint?



Question:  What is a matte finish paint?


Answer:  Matte refers to the sheen level of the paint.  Matte finish means a very flat finish with not very much sheen at all.  These finishes are typically not very washable so they shouldn't be used in high traffic areas or places where washability is a concern.


There are washable matte finishes but they typically cost more money than a regular flat or matte finish.
