Cat asked 10 years ago

My walls are painted in flat paint. But when I wash the walls the paint comes off. I have found that semi gloss paint on walls is much easier to wash when washing the walls. Can I use semi gloss over flat paint and what will the results be?

Sounds like a cheap flat paint. Yes you can use a semi-gloss over the flat. You can also opt for a lower sheen like satin. Satin is also very washable.

Use a good quality paint so you won't have a similar problem in the future.
