Hi, my name is Erica Lugbill, and I own Lugbill Designs, a residential interior design and remodeling firm in Chicago. Today, I'm going to be covering what kind of paint to choose when you're trying to hide a blemish in the wall. The best paint is always a flat finish, and I know you're thinking flat. I can't wash it, I have kids, I have dogs, how am I going to take care of it? They have a great product that is a flat enamel paint, or a flat paint with a ceramic base. The great thing about it, is it's washable and extremely durable. So, you don't have to worry about it holding up. Flat paint works best, because it doesn't pick up the light and draw attention to a blemish, like a semi-gloss or an egg-shell would. So, while you're at the paint store, be sure to ask for a washable flat finish paint, or a ceramic base, flat finish paint, to get you started on the right foot with your project. Thanks for joining me today, i hope you found these tips helpful. To see more of my work, go to LugbillDesigns.com.
