What type of sheen to use interior
 
As far as sheen, here is what I have seen on other sites:

Trim - SemiGloss
Celing - Flat
Drywall - Eggshell or Satin
Bathroom - SemiGloss


I talked to my BM dealer and she said a lot of people are going with Satin throughout the entire house, including the Bathroom for all drywall. That would be easier, but is it the best idea?

Thanks

To me, it really depends on the usage of the room.

Kitchen: Eggshell
Bathroom: Eggshell or semi (adult: eggshell, kids: semi)
Laundry room: Semi
Kids room: Eggshell or semi
Ceiling: Good 'ole flat ceiling paint
Garage: Semi
Trim: Semi

Super fantastic drywall surfaces: probably flat, possibly satin.

Matter of taste, to me ,semi-gloss on ANY wall is a mistake, unless they are absolutely perfect, the semi will show ANY defects. Semi-gloss for trim, eggshell or satin for baths,kitchens, flat everywhere else. All high end flats are now washable.
