Trying to decide between matte or eggshell for a bedroom

thoughts?

Which Paint Type Is Right for You?

Use this crib sheet to pick the best paint finish for your needs.


Cans of paint and paintbrush

Flat/Matte

Where to use: Best choice for walls with many imperfections. Use on ceilings and bedroom, dining-room, and living-room walls. Do not use in the kitchen or bathrooms.

Touch-ups and scrubbability: Flat or matte finishes are easy to touch up but hard to clean. Premium flat paint, such as Benjamin Moore Regal Matte Finish or California Paints Super-Scrub Matte Finish, has better washability.

Eggshell

Where to use: This low-sheen finish is a great choice for living-room or bedroom walls. Do not use in high-traffic areas, like hallways, because the delicate finish mars easily.

Touch-ups and scrubbability: Eggshell has a washable finish that can be easily touched up.

Girl matte paint is a big no for me.  Go with eggshell or satin.  No need to create a nice surface for dust and dirt to attach itself toLOL

I've looked at so much paint in the last few weeks it's ridic. Decorating your own place is a lot of freaking work. Especially when you have someone else's POV to consider.

has anyone here ever painted brick walls? How did that come out?

Eggshell is A LOT more cleanable than flat, yet only has a tiny bit of shine in it. If you're really not sure you can go to a home improvement store like Home Depot or Lowes and they can show you a swatches of sheens from flat to high gloss. Also if you want you can get sample paints in the sheens and colors you want to try (their like $3.00) and paint them on your wall before making the big commitment.

But yeah imo you should get eggshell. A lot less hassel in the long run.
