To describe how much light a paint or stain reflects, a gloss finish is used, which may also be called a sheen level. Various gloss finishes are available, such as flat, low sheen, eggshell, semi-gloss, and gloss. Flat gloss finishes are typically used for ceilings or painting techniques that produce faux textures, while shinier finishes are more suitable for interior and exterior trim. Many paints for kitchens or bathrooms have a high gloss finish as it is easier to clean. However, the gloss may wear over time, leading to a dingy or worn appearance. Sheen level is another term used to refer to a gloss finish.
