Texture Paints:


These are used to create amazing wall textures and visual effects.

Apart from these, primers and putties (used before painting) can be used for added coating, durability, and smooth leveling. 

Types of Wall Paint Finishes


Once the paint dries up, there’s a thin covering on it. This appearance depends upon the selected paint finish. Understanding paint finish is important for the desired result.

Matte: Devoid of shine, this is easy to apply and useful to hide cracks in the interior walls. Matte finish may require touch-ups in between. Look for a matte enamel if want something more durable.

Satin: Use it to get a smooth appearance on the walls. This velvet finish is suitable for walls that require frequent cleaning.

Eggshell:Requires a single coat application. This finish includes a slight hint of shine and is handy to hide those unwanted cracks in the wall!

Semi-Gloss and Gloss: Semi-gloss is easy to clean, gives a refined shine and can be used on areas such as doors or wall cabinets. Glossy paints have a high-shine finish and attract attention with the reflection of light. This finish is preferred for modern interiors to add a touch of drama.
