What Is Paint For Interior Wood?
All major paint manufacturers have developed high-quality emulsions specially designed to treat interior wood such as skirting boards, doors and furniture. These products come in a range of finishes, including satin, gloss and eggshell, which all vary in their level of sheen. The more sheen a finish has, the more light it reflects and the more durability it has. In terms of interior paint for wood, eggshell has the least sheen, with satin having slightly more sheen and gloss having the most sheen.
To help provide the necessary qualities for various tasks, paints for interior wood come in both water-based and oil-based formulations. Water-based paints are quick-drying, do not yellow over time and have lower VOC's, while oil-based paints are more durable and can achieve a higher quality of finish. Traditionally, oil-based emulsions have been higher quality and therefore favoured by professional decorators, but the reality today is that water-based paints are just as high-quality, meaning it is simply down to personal preference as to whether you use water-based or oil-based paints on interior wood.

How Do You Apply Paint For Interior Wood?
The preparation and application of paint to interior woodwork completely depends on the condition of the surface you are painting. If it is bare wood, we would recommend you apply a primer before painting to ensure that the paint can adhere to the surface. This would then be followed by an undercoat of the paint you are using, and then a final top-coat of the paint you are using. You will find that the vast majority of interior wood treatments come in undercoat and topcoat versions. If the surface is pre-painted and in sound condition then it may suffice to simply sand down the surface using a light-key sandpaper and then apply the topcoat of gloss, eggshell or satin.
