Wrap Your Walls In Luxury—Glossy Paint Adds Sophistication And Elegance

 
 

 





(HIT) - The hottest trend in home decorating is sheen and shimmer according to the Rohm and Haas Paint Quality Institute (PQI). Satin and silk-like decorating is growing in popularity from pillows to bed linens to luxurious textiles. And, as a perfect backdrop for these rich home accessories, try a new paint finish for your walls and ceilings.

"Glossy paints are the perfect choices to add sparkle and shine to living spaces and they provide the added benefit of a durable finish," offers Debbie Zimmer, decorative painting consultant for the Rohm and Haas PQI. "Today’s glossier finishes add a subtle sophistication to any room and compliment current shimmery paint trends."

Here are four paint enhancements that add pizzazz to any living space:

Not quite ready to make all your walls glow? Then combine both flat and glossy paint in the same area. For example, paint three walls in your favorite flat hue and the fourth or accent wall in the same color, but in a glossy finish for a light reflecting enhancement created by this simple and easy-to-do change.
Accent your chandelier and dinner candles by painting a dining room ceiling with a glossy finish.
The area beneath a chair rail can be enhanced with glossy paint to complement tile, marble, or wood flooring.
Finally, make your narrow hallway visually expand by painting with a high-sheen paint.
 
 





 



Whether you are transforming your space into one of sophistication and luxury, or into a serene and subdued setting, the simple use of paint sheen can make your space sparkle.

To help identify the top quality paint that’s best for your home, ask for advice at your local paint or hardware store, or at a decorating center. And to understand why top quality paint outperforms ordinary paint, visit www.paintquality.com.
