We´ll find our finished paint efforts more rewarding if we use the right type of paints. Here´s a basic list:
-Latex, that is available in flat or semi-gloss finish; can be thinned with water and is washable; is odor free and quick drying; good for ceilings, walls and woodwork.
-Polyurethane, that is available in satin or high gloss and very durable; can be thinned with alcohol; good for floors and wood surfaces.
-Oil-based paint, high gloss that can be scrubbed; can be thinned with mineral spirits or turpentine; best for trim, kitchens, bathrooms, childs´ room.
