    Hi I'm not sure what the benefits are of each of these paints but what is advisable for an open plan kitchen/dining area? Are there any advantages/disadvantages for either type?

    A mate told me silk or satin is good in kitchens because it wipes down easily, but does it shine too much under spotlights? (which is what I have in there)

    The walls were skimmed so in good condition. I was just thinking what difference Silk paint made as I've not used it before.

    Soft Sheen is what you need :) Dulux or Johnstone's.
