Satin offers a ‘mid sheen’ coverage, described as velvety and more muted than the conventional shiny gloss effect. While available in a range of shades, colours often take on a pale appearance, making it perfect for softening up a home.

Satin Paints possess light reflecting qualities which help hide imperfections on woodwork, but may show up flaws on walls, depending on application. Uneven roller or brush strokes will be apparent, meaning later touch ups can be difficult.

A Guide To Satin Paint 

Satin and silk are part of a family of ‘mid sheen’ paint finishes, which provide a soft, polished appearance to walls and woodwork. The perfect alternative to a matt or gloss finish, satin works well in family rooms and hallways due to its durability. Satin finish paint tends to be favoured by home decorators and painting professionals because it is easy to work with. A perfect satin finish is within reach with the right preparation. 

Our satin paints are assembled according to your preferred brand, base and the surface you are painting. Choose from oil, latex and acrylic based paint for your interior and exterior needs. Once you have found the right paint for your paint project, it’s time to prep your surface and purchase the necessary equipment. 

Prepping your surface

To avoid cracks and flaws in your new paint job, you should always start by properly priming your surface. Glossy surfaces should be sanded while dirtier surfaces will need to be cleaned, and any holes, bumps or crevices filled in. The aim is to provide a smooth, unsullied surface for your satin paint to adhere to.

Follow by applying an even coat of a primer suited to your chosen paint. Correctly priming your surface is just as important as applying the paint. The right primer can make all the difference to your end result. Now that you are ready to start painting it’s time to pick your applicator. Oil based paints are best applied with a natural bristle brush while latex paint works better with synthetic. The size of the brush depends on your intended use, smaller brushes are perfect for trim work while 3-4 inch brushes are great all rounders.
