Color & Sheen

MyPainter makes selecting your colors and level of sheen for each room very easy. Use the app below to make a list of the rooms with the respective color and finish you would like MyPainter to use.

Lower Sheen vs Higher Seen

As a general rule, the color in a higher gloss paint will appear brighter and richer than the same color in a lower gloss paint. Lower sheen finishes produce truer colors, reflect less light, offer better coverage, but are less durable. While higher sheen finishes create more shine, reflect more light, and are a more durable.

What sheen/finish should I choose for my project?

There are several finishes (also often called “sheen”) to choose from. Many popular and high quality product lines offer paint in Flat, Matte, Eggshell, Satin, Semi-gloss, and High-gloss finishes. Not all sheens are available in each line of paint.

No matter which finish you choose, we always recommend using a high quality line of paint, as it will wear better over time. The high quality product lines we offer will resist fading, burnishing, and blistering, and provide you with superior coverage, adhesion and durability.

What our customers say

Quality is Top Notch

Hands down this was the best experience with painters I’ve ever had. Harrison, Ted, and the entire crew were communicative, prompt, reasonable, thorough, and clean. And the quality is top notch. I highly recommend My Painters and will use them again in a heartbeat.

Definitely Hire Them Again

My Painter has painted different parts of our house several times now. They do excellent work! They give a fair price, they are neat around the house, and they finish when they say they will. They even make sure to keep the dog in the house as they go in and out. I would definitely hire them again!

Eileen Smith

Definitely hire them again.

I needed repair and paint work on my townhouse exterior trim and obtained price quotes from 3 different contractors. I decided to go with My Painter based on Harrison's proposal which clearly outlined the scope of work and was very reasonably priced. Ted and his crew did an outstanding job in executing the work.


Always knew what to expect

Everything was done as promised on time and as bid. Communication was great — always knew what to expect and when workers were going to show up. Will definitely use next time we need a painter!
