Stain-Resistant Paint

You may want to learn more about stain-resistant paint as you consider the type of paint you will use for your next home improvement project. The name sounds great—after all, who doesn’t want paint that resists the pesky stains that become eyesores on the walls of your home?

Let Five Star Painting give you the details on what stain-resistant paint is and how you can know if stain-resistant interior paint is a smart choice for your next home improvement project.

What Is Stain-Resistant Paint?

Stain-resistant paint is typically semi-gloss or glossy paint. Rather than matte paints, which tend to show every fingerprint and stain, paint with a glossy sheen is easier to clean and less likely to stain, making it ideal for high-traffic areas of your home, like kitchens, entryways, hallways, and bathrooms. If you have children in the family, a stain-resistant paint keeps your walls looking their best in the presence of dirty fingerprints and food splatters.

What Types of Stain-Resistant Interior Paint Are Best

You can save yourself from needless scrubbing and repainting to cover-up unsightly stains by choosing the right product from the start.

When purchasing stain-resistant interior paint for your home project, look for brands that mention “stain-resistant” on the label or have a semi-gloss or glossy sheen. A quick wipe-down with a wet cloth is all it takes to keep your stain-resistant painted walls looking fresh and clean.

A couple of top brand name stain-resistant paints to consider include:

  • Behr Premium Plus Paint and Primer in One: This durable paint/primer seals uncoated and painted surfaces to create a stain-blocking, stain-resistant, and mildew-resistant finish.
  • Sherwin-Williams Duration Home Interior Acrylic Latex Paint: Available in a variety of finishes (even matte), this paint repels stains and is washable.
