Interior paints are made specially to be used on the interior walls of the house and can be scrubbed off with ease. They are stain-resistant and it is very easy to clean dirt off of them. The level of scrubbing is related to the amount of gloss present in the paint. Flat types of paints have the least ability to wash but it is easier for touch-ups. High gloss paints have the ability to wash.
In dry parts of the house like bedrooms, dining and living room, low sheen paints are the best option and for wet areas such as bathrooms and kitchen, semi-gloss is best. Interior paint is made to withstand abrasion and it produces low or zero volatile organic compounds. It is specially designed to be more delicate than exterior paint. Low VOC paint has superior abrasion resistance compared to zero VOC paint.
