Paint.

Whilst we are away our hall/stairs and landing is being painted. I made a big mistake with the colour - its too dark in a dark area, oak stained floor boards with oldfashioned axeminster carpet (Swerve would approve). So I have gone for an off white colour. Now my dilema is silk or matt....the rest of the house is painted in matt and whilst I like the finish it's not very child friendly and most of the walls are quite stained as the paint dosn't wash down well - even though they are from the Crown Traditional range. You can imagine the finger prints and stains on the stair walls - not to mention Freddies art work.

So I have gone for vinyl silk.

Will this look odd with the rest of the house or be OK, I know it will be shiney - but how shiney. At least it will be washable. And maybe I could gradually work my way redoing the rest of the downstairs in silk.

Yours in dilema about my finish.
:sad:

May I make a suggestion. Why not paint a little spot in the hall that is not too obvious and see what happens.....

To be honest Cat, I doubt that anyone but you would notice the difference, if you have the hall in vinyl silk and the rest of the place in matt!

I personally like the shiney finish you get with vinyl silk!
