BM Aura Paint on Doors - Eggshell or Satin?

NYCApt11354May 9, 2011

Hi! I am in the process of completely renovating our apartment and purchased 20 hardwood doors which will be factory finished (primed and painted). We will be using BM Aura paint throughout the apartment. I'm having a hard time picking a paint finish for our doors and trim - I don't want a lot of sheen as our apartment is pretty modern and am leaning towards eggshell Aura paint in Simply White. Will I regret not getting satin paint? Thanks!

eggshell will have a textured type finish like an egg. I would go with the satin, which will be more durable.

Actually eggshell describes the sheen, not the finish texture. That said, I think you will find that satin flows and levels better and that the gloss is relatively understated.

I used the Aura Satin for my bedroom closet doors and woodwork ~ as recommended by the BM dealer. LOVED IT!!! You will too!!!
