Satin vs. High-Gloss Finish

Most notably, high-gloss has more sheen than satin.

The types of finishes you’ll likely find in most paint collections—ranging from most to least reflective—are glossy/high-gloss, semi-gloss, satin, eggshell, and flat/matte. High-gloss is higher on the scale than satin and, thus, promises more reflectivity.

High-gloss’s extra sheen may change how your paint color looks on the wall.

While both finishes have some sheen, more light from your lamps or the room’s uncovered windows will bounce off of high-gloss surface than a satin surface (which actually absorbs some additional light instead). As a result of the way light reflects, the same paint color may appear darker in a high-gloss finish and slightly lighter in a satin one. So, factor that in when you’re making your final decision about which paint finish to use.

High-gloss better draws the eye to architectural elements.

Generally speaking, cleaning needs aside, satin is the default choice for many do-it-yourselfers refreshing interior walls and furniture, while smaller doses of high-gloss highlight home features: cabinetry, mantels, stair railing, etc. Even if you apply the same color in two different sheens in a room—satin to the walls and high-gloss to the trim—the reflection will make the craftsmanship of the molding pop.

Satin is more forgiving of pre-existing imperfections than high-gloss.

If you’ve got dings and dents in your walls, your cabinets, or your soon-to-be-painted dresser, the reflective nature of semi-gloss will only draw more attention to every flaw. A satin finish is more flattering over pocks, divots, and scrapes since it draws the light in and tricks the eye into seeing a more even surface. So, if you want to deflect attention away from faults and blemishes without spending hours sanding them away, satin is the way to go.
