You can purchase DBG including the matting agent from the same paint
factor and you can either add the matting agent yourself progressively
until you reach the desired level of gloss, or (better still) get the
paint factor to do it for you because they will know exactly what ratio
of matting agent to add to your paint which will range from a dead flat
dull finish to a semi-gloss.
Any paint colour can be made in mat or gloss from source.

I'd recommend semi-gloss because matt is too flat and difficult to clean
and keep clean. Semi-gloss or satin is a happy medium, it's easy to
clean looks good and doesn't show up all the imperfections.
