Latest News from Lloyd Decorators


Now there’s a question for you. Which is best?

Gloss (shiny) vs Satin (semi-gloss) vs Eggshell (flat matt)

Here’s a breakdown:

• Gloss – a shiny high sheen finish that is almost reflective in effect. Always popular because of its hard-wearing nature but other products also offer this these days. A drawback is that the glossy sheen will highlight any flaws and defects in the wood being painted.

• Satinwood or Satin – this is a semi-gloss finish, a midway choice which is not as reflective as gloss nor as matt as eggshell. A satin finish really enhances work on fairly large surfaces such as internal doors, especially those that are textured or panelled, giving a crisp, clean look.

• Eggshell or Matt – the matt finish has no reflective or shiny qualities at all. It is a popular choice for very large wood surfaces such as kitchen cabinets. It also gives a shabby chic look to furniture. This a durable finish that is easy to keep clean.

Ultimately, of course, there is no clear winner and it is down to the individual taste of the homeowner.

  • "Lloyd Decorators have just completed painting my whole house, which I was rather dreading – the process not the end result! The house was shabby, and complex with repairs to be made and fiddly woodwork to be painted too.Mr. Lloyd was most helpful from the visit to quote for the work, kept to the estimated time plan for doing the work, and supervised his team while they were working. The men on the job were helpful, discrete and very skilled – making the process of moving furniture etc as easy as possible. And, to top it all, I love the end result. They have transformed my house, and I am delighted – so I am delighted to recommend the company.My sons recommended the company to me – and I am very glad that I listened to them!"
