Sheen means the gloss level of the paint. Among the different sheens applied are flat and lower sheen paints which are ideal for bedrooms, living rooms or for areas that are low traffic  as they provide matte finish which hide imperfections beautifully.  
 
The advantages of flat and lower sheen paints are- 
 

  • The reflection provided by the flat and lower sheen paints is even and light thus making the surface emit a softer and uniform look. 
  • They are good at hiding imperfections therefore they do not require pre preparation before application like patching or texturing. 
  • They are easy to apply as they do not show the lap marks. 
  • They can easily be repainted without needing to be sanded or retextured again.
