That is your basic wall paint used most commonly in every house. Soft sheen: a finish in between matt and silk. It is more durable than matt and is also more resilient when cleaned. Makes it a good choice for any kitchen or bathroom. Silk: 'mid-sheen' finish, which means it looks like a slightly polished surface and reflects a bit of light.

You can wipe silk wall finishes easily which makes them very practical but if you have less-than-perfect walls, all the lumps and bumps may show up a bit more. A perfect choice for any kitchen and bathroom. For fresh plastering work we sell special paints such as Super Leytex, Contract Matt from Leyland or Supermatt from Dulux.
