painting red too - need advice

I've also read many of the postings indicating that painting dark reds is difficult. I've now read how best to avoid the mistakes, but do you think I'll have better luck with a matte finish or satin? I'm worried about shiny lines showing on the wall more than the touching up I'll need to do if I scuff the matte finish. The room I'm painting is a home office with a ton of sun. Thanks for input!

Matte, satin, gloss. Any finish will show some damage when scuffed. Gloss is the most durable and resistant to damage. Flat will show most anything. From this, I would use the glossiest version that suited the case, which would be satin rather than matte.

Hello alwaystrying, love that DIY ID !!! You have done your home work so all you need is some great paint and roller sleeve. For flat paints I like a 50-50 (wool/polyester) and for matte/eggshell or glossier I like a 100% lamb. Whatever you decide backroll well and you should have a nice job....Mike
