  • Historical and Heritage Buildings: Often used in the restoration and maintenance of historic buildings, especially in the UK, to preserve an authentic and period-appropriate appearance.
  • Residential Design: It’s used inside homes for cabinetry, kitchen units, and feature walls to create a calming and inviting space.

Maintenance and Practicality

  • Cleaning: Satin and gloss finishes are easy to clean and maintain. Dirt and marks can be wiped away with a damp cloth, and the colour tends to hide minor blemishes well.
  • Touch-ups: Due to its soft and muted tone, touch-ups and repainting blend well, making maintenance straightforward.
