There are different finishes of paint. They are:
1. Eggshell – Has a hint of gloss in an somewhat flat finish. Great choice for bedrooms.
2. Flat – has no sheen and it is impossible to wipe any mark off of it.
3. Semi-Gloss – This is a bit glossy and shiny and reflects a lot of light.
4.Gloss – This finish is very shiny -it is not used that often except on trim
