Picture molding wainscot in foyer and stairway


We are starting this project in our Foyer and hallway. I am just not sure if you should use a flat, semi-gloss or high gloss white. What would you recommend???

Semi-gloss. But experiment with the high gloss, the results could turn out dramatic.

its personal preference on type of paint. There really is no right or wrong answer when it comes to what paint to use on walls, trim and ceilings. Now there are typical things but no right and wrong.
