hi,

I have been doing some decorating and want to repaint my walls for the first time since buying my house. But I am unsure if my walls are silk or matt emulsion.

I originally assumed they were painted with matt, but since applying a matt sample patch, I now think my walls are silk. What would you say it is from this photo below?

I don’t want to paint matt over silk!

Thanks

Thanks, the more I look the more I am convinced it’s silk. I am going to take my purchased matt emulsion back to the shop for a refund and get some silk.

Keep the matt or purchase a scrubbable matt emulsion, dulux diamond matt or crown clean extreme, vinyl silk is so old fashioned, if you want some sheen get soft sheen not the dreadful vinyl silk
