Eggshell Paint Sheen:

The eggshell paint sheen is similar to the sheen of an egg, hence its name, and it has a soft, somewhat velvety appearance.

It is fairly dirt resistant and durable, so I would recommend it for moderately trafficked areas.

Its important to note that in regard to paint sheens, the higher the sheen, the higher the shine, and the more durable.

Here are a couple photos of a room with an eggshell paint sheen (at Christmas time):

Do you like an eggshell paint sheen or do you prefer more of a gloss?

Have a great day!
