Eggshell paint

Eggshell is a term that is used to describe paint with a very slight sheen between matte satin paint. As indicated by its name when dry it has an appearance is similar to that of an eggshell.

As eggshell has a slight sheen it does reflect light giving the painted surfaces a lighter appearance as well as protecting it from stains and everyday wear and tear. This being said it does not offer the same level of protection as higher sheen paint such as satin or semi-gloss or gloss paint.

This means they might not be as appropriate in high traffic areas which are prone to wear and tear or in kitchens and bathrooms which are more prone to staining and moisture. However, Eggshell paints are great for wood and wall to give a more vintage appearance as well as offering some protection. They are often used in heritage builds or when a rustic look is wanted.
