SW Duration: Flat or Satin/Eggshell in LR?

rdonchezMay 17, 2011

I'm painting a new home and decided on Sherman Williams Paint. I intend to go with the Duration line. I am told that the paint comes in three finishes: flat, satin, and semi-gloss. I intend to use semi-gloss for the trim, satin for the kitchen and bathrooms. I am unsure, however, which finish to use for the living rooms and bedrooms between flat and satin. Does anyone have any recommendations? I visited the store but its tough to tell based on the small sample cards. Thanks.

I'm using Duration Matte throughout my home, even in the kitchen and bathrooms. It's a beautiful paint ... looks flat when viewed head-on, but there is a slight sheen at an angle.
