Time for Painting Second Coat

If your pressed for time to finish a room, how long do you have to wait before a second coat of paint can be applied on the walls? Do Flat paints dry faster than Satin or Gloss? Tempature in house is 65 degrees.

Time for Painting Second Coat

Depends mostly on the paint (exactly what type/brand/line/etc)
But also on the temp/humidity and other conditions

A good paint in good conditions (Ben Moore Regal 70* 50%) you might be able to push it to a few hours
Ben Moore Aura about 40 minutes no problem
