Selecting the Right Paint - Johnstones Paints

Selecting the Right Paint

Emulsion is the most commonly used paint for interior walls and ceilings and there are three main types of finishes you need to know about.

Vinyl Matt
Vinyl matt emulsion gives a matt, non-shiny finish that expertly covers small imperfections on the wall or ceiling. This is the most popular type of paint so is the perfect option if you are new to painting!

Vinyl Soft Sheen
This emulsion provides a subtle soft-sheen finish and boasts durable properties that ensure it remains in the condition it was intended to for longer. It also benefits from being able to be lightly washed so you can remove unsightly marks.

Vinyl Silk
Vinyl Silk gives a high sheen finish that is the most durable of all emulsion paints. It is the perfect solution for high traffic areas, such as hallways.

Kitchen and Bathroom Emulsion
This emulsion has been specially formulated to provide durable protection in areas that experience a lot of moisture and humidity.
