Is a non-reflective finish that absorbs light and is great for disguising surface wall imperfections. It is generally considered to be the standard sheen for walls, having the most pigment, which means it will provide the most coverage. It is however, the most difficult to clean without taking the paint off with the grime. A matte finish is best for low traffic rooms with lots of light. Adult bedrooms, for example.
