Sheen is used to reference how shiny the paint is and the amount of light that is reflected from the paint surface. Determining the right sheen is important to ensure the durability of the product you are selecting as well as that aesthetic appeal you desire. Wear and tear and high traffic areas would typically require a shinier paint on the sheen scale, while low traffic areas such as a master bedroom could do well with a matte paint finish.
