I want to paint a few internal doors white but don't want a really glossy finish.

Can anyone recommend an alternative to gloss?

Water based satinwood.

Eggshell instead of gloss, doesn't go yellow.

I was going to say satin too, the stuff I've used is oil based though. More hard wearing maybe.

Anything solvent based is likely to yellow. Water based satinwood wears very well - we have it and it stands up to stuff just the same as gloss ime.

I'll have to give it a go, much easier to clean brushes.
