”Flat white paint reflects more light then semi-gloss or gloss paint.”

No offense but everything I could find says different about this, was wondering how this is so?

“Flat white paint has the ability to reflect between 75-85% of the light, and does not create hotspots.

Glossy and eggshell whites do not reflect light as efficiently as flat white. Semi-gloss paint for example, only has the ability to reflect between 55-60% of the light.”

This is measured with a light meter.
