satin question - Kelly Moore vs Benjamin Moore

11 years ago

We're down to the main living area which is an open plan, living, dining, entry, kitchen and nook. The previous owners left me a list of the paints and colors they had used throughout the house.

They used Kelly Moore satin on all the walls. I've used Benjamin Moore eggshell in the few rooms we've repainted so far and really like it.

Forgive in advance the cross-post from the paint forum but I need to make a decision tomorrow.

We're closing in on home stretch with the painting. At last!

The painter is recommending that I don't use eggshell in the kitchen and that I go with satin instead. They tried to convince me to use semi-gloss but there's no way I want that. So I'm thinking satin as a happy medium.

The Kelly Moore satin that's up there now seems fine to me for the kitchen area (which is why I know I don't want semi gloss)

But the paint I'm using is Benjamin Moore and I wonder if both satins will be about the same sheen or not?

Thanks for any help.
