We tried a number of satin/matt type paints until we came up with the right finish, not too matt and not too shiny. In the end we went for Dulux Satin Wood Trade available from a builders merchants or large B&Q. It painted straight over the top of gloss with a light sanding before. One coat and not too many fumes. DH did 11 doors and all the skirtings on a 4 bed house (excluding kitchen and bathroom) from a 2.5 litre tin.
