A Semi-Gloss finish is more reflective than satin, but is not as shiny as gloss. Semi-gloss finishes provide walls with a shiny appearance and brighten a room's appearance. Off-whites and pale shades of lighter colors are punched up and made brighter by the glossy effect created with these finishes. They are ideal for use in areas with high humidity such as bathrooms and kitchens. They are also the easiest to clean (with light scrubbing or wiping), compared to other finishes. The downside to a gloss finish is that it shows almost every imperfection on a wall or ceiling.
