High Gloss Paint Sheen:

With a glass-like, shiny, incredibly durable finish, high gloss paint sheens are perfect for high traffic areas as they allow dirt and grime to be wiped clean with ease.

Word to the wise… When painting with a high gloss paint, prep, prep, PREP.  It will show EVERY bump and imperfection on the wall, so I highly recommend you hire a professional painter to do the job.  High gloss lacquered walls are quite beautiful, but as all women know, with beauty comes pain, and this paint sheen is a pain to apply correctly.

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