Satin versus Flat

Donna asked 10 years ago

Painting my living room. Does satin go on easier than flat? Husband painted bathrooms satin and it went over so smoothly. When painted bedroom flat, he had a hard time. Before we do the living room with is 3x the size, want the easier way. Is it his imagination? We have the original white walls, 7 years old and painting “color” onto them. Also what is the difference from eggshell to satin?

Satin paint is easier to use, spreads (rolls) with less effort. Eggshell has slightly less sheen than satin. This depends on the manufacture. Always test both the sheen and color for the best results.
