Use gloss finish?

Anonymous asked 10 years ago

I am considering painting my condo living room white in a gloss finish. This is to bring as much brightness into the room with windows only on one wall. What would be the reasons I should reconsider this plan? Thanks.

Highly NOT recommended… high gloss REFLECTS all the "little" imperfections in the surface and will not give a "pleasing" looking finish over such a large flat area… for living rooms use a FLAT finish, you'll get just as much light into the room, even more if you redesign your drapes or window coverings…
