Gloss Paint

Gloss paint offers a shine-based finish, ranging from high gloss to flexible gloss. This practical option is flexible but best suited to woodwork. As the most resistant and hard wearing of our paint sheens, gloss paint is perfect for tricky areas such as kitchen and door edges, stair banisters and overall trim work. With a little preparation it can also work to provide depth and variation to matt walls.

Gloss shines best in a pale and pastel colour palette. Its radiant light reflecting qualities are what make it one of our most popular choices. To order today, simply select your choice brand and then choose the colour that suits you using our comprehensive colour chart. 

A Guide to Gloss Paint

The word gloss refers to the sheen level of the paint. The higher the sheen level, the more reflective it will be. Therefore, gloss paints are usually used to add shine to exterior and interior surfaces.Trade gloss paints in particular are ideal if you want to highlight or add lustre to a particular surface. Gloss paints at The Paint Shed are tough, durable and washable which makes them one of our more popular options for high traffic areas of a home.

Typically there are four types of trade gloss:

Non drip gloss - Best used on doors, cabinets and other vertical surfaces. Protects your carpets/floors from damage with its non drip technology.

Liquid gloss- To be used on top of an undercoat One coat gloss - The quick and easy option for a perfect finish

High Gloss - Highly reflective, easier to clean and provides great colour intensity. It will however highlight irregularities in less than perfect surfaces.

Semi Gloss - Slightly glossy, not as reflective. Great stain resistance and ideal for areas prone to wear and tear.

Application: Gloss paint can be easily applied on a surface which has been suitably prepared. Previously painted surfaces should be rubbed down to remove any loose paint, dust or residue. Follow by filing in any holes with filler, then apply an undercoat or primer if required.

Once complete, apply the gloss paint with a roller, brush or spray all of which can be found at The Paint Shed in our accessories section.
