Hallways and stairwells are typically the worst for problems caused by critical light, especially stairwells as they often have high windows and horizontal joins in the wall linings.
There will often be dents and knocks caused by frequent use and the relatively confined spaces.
The actual surface area to be painted is often smaller than people initially believe as there are usually plenty of doors and in older houses, high skirting boards.
Resene SpaceCote Low Sheen is the best system as it takes knocks and scuffs better than Resene Zylone Sheen or Resene Lumbersider (D34) and is better than both if there are any critical light issues.
