If you used Benjamin Moore paints in your house what sheen did you use for the walls in the kitchen? Other rooms?
Were your walls smooth or textured?
BM Aura paint, matte finish on walls and ceilings, satin finish (color matched to walls) on base molding.
Walls are smooth.
Love the matte finish. Looks velvety!

Benjamin Moore Regal matte and Benjamin Moore ben eggshell for walls and ceilings. Benjamin Moore waterborne Satin Impervo for trim. The walls are smooth.

Here is a link that might be useful: Paint sheen thread
Matte finish, textured (knock-down) walls.
I didn't use BM, I used Muralo Ultra Ceramic flat, and it's scrubbable. But I'm very happy I chose flat, because when you try to touch-up a glossy finish, you have to paint the whole wall. With flat or matte, you can just touch up as needed. I did the trim in semigloss, though.
BM Scrubbable flat on all my smooth walls.
Ginny20-glad to hear you like the Muralo Ultra. It's on my list to drive to get some and try it-great leveling as is Aura from what I've heard. Good for cabinets too.
BM Aura in matte. Our walls are unfortunately textured.
SparklingWater - Yes, Muralo Ultra Ceramic was my GC's favorite paint, and it was recommended on the Painting Forum. I repainted the old plaster walls in the adjoining PR myself, and I can attest it goes on beautifully. When you paint it over new, smooth surfaces, it just levels out perfectly. Unfortunately, the Muralo brand apparently isn't available everywhere.
I have the BM Regal Eggshell in my kitchen. The walls are plaster and the more the sheen in a paint, the more the imperfections of the plaster are visible. I used flat in other rooms.
