Gloss paint has been used traditionally as the ‘go to’ paint for woodwork, doors, and trims. In the past gloss paint was oil based, was prone to yellowing and could even contain harmful lead.
Thankfully this is no longer the case as modern gloss paints are water based, with minimal VOC content and provide the benefits of a hardwearing paint without the drawback of yellowing over time.
The word gloss refers to the sheen level of the paint. The higher the sheen level, the more reflective the paint will be. A gloss finish reflects the most light, so is the most ‘shiny’.
1829 gloss paint is a hardwearing, durable, and washable finish so is ideal for use in areas of high wear such as interior doors and skirting boards. 1829 gloss can also be used outside, so feel free to protect your front door or garden furniture in one of our vintage colours.
Gloss can also be used on suitably prepared metal, so you can match your radiators to your doors and trim.
