Features and Benefits

At B&Q we want you to be satisfied with your colour selection. Not all monitors will display colours the same and paint tins may not show the same colour as your walls do in natural light. We therefore recommend you order a tester pot online or pop in store to pick one up so you are sure that this is the right colour for you.

  • Does not reflect light
  • Easy and pleasant to use
  • Colour stays true even when washed

How to paint a wall and ceiling

Painting the walls and ceiling can be one of the most enjoyable parts of decorating a room. It's an easy way to refresh a space, or add character with a new colour.

To get the best finish, it's worth doing some thorough preparation before beginning and then working systematically around the room. With the right tools even the more difficult tasks, like painting the ceiling, can be made easier and more efficient.

In this guide, we'll be;

  • Painting the ceiling, coving and walls in a room
  • Using a water-based interior emulsion paint - for advice choosing the best paint for your room, check out our Interior paint buying guide
  • Completing these tasks with either a brush and roller, or paint pads

Questions to ask before you begin

Which room in the house are you painting?

What goes on in the room you are planning to paint? Maybe you are painting a kitchen or bathroom that would benefit from a moisture-resistant paint. Some rooms might need an extra hard-wearing paint which can be wiped down and cleaned such as hallways, landings or kid’s bedrooms. Finding the right paint isn’t just about which colour you pick. We have different types of paint designed for use in different rooms. By choosing the paint that is specially designed for the type of room you are painting, you will get the best end result.

What type of surface are you painting?

There are different types of paint for different surface materials. As well as a comprehensive selection of emulsion paints for walls and ceilings, we have a wide range of specialist paint including ones that are designed for wood furniture, brick walls, and tiles. Choosing the right paint for the right material will ensure a longer-lasting result and the best coverage.

What kind of look are you going for?

Maybe your home has quite a traditional look and would suit a subtle, matt effect paint. Or perhaps you have a more contemporary style that would look great with a satin or metallic finish paint. When selecting paint, think about what you want the final look to be, so that you can choose the correct finish as well as the right colour.

How much time do you have to complete your decorating project?

If you need to get your painting job done quickly, we have a wide range of quick-drying options that will help you get a whole room decorated in a few hours. We have quick dry wall paint, primers, and wood and metal paint to help you make the most of your time whatever you are painting.

What state is the surface in?

Some of our interior paints can be applied directly to the surface. Others may require a bit of preparation before you can begin painting. Perhaps you are painting a freshly plastered surface or previously untreated wood, or maybe you need to fill in some holes or sand down an uneven surface. We have paints and primers for all sorts of surfaces that will help you achieve a nice, even finish.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from True solid colour Purchased at Christmas and applied 3 coats to my lounge wall. Had to go over with a brush in places as its thin paint but the results are amazing. It looks fresh bright stylish and has the look of velvet. I'm impressed with colour.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Don't expect a matt finish!!! Had used Classic Red Matt 5 years ago as a feature wall - we loved the rich colour and the true Matt finish. It did need 3 coats but the results were good. Having had a stove fitted in the chimney breast we needed to re-paint and were pleased to find the colour still available. I painted the wall and then we went out for a few hours. On our return I was surprised to find a sheen on the finished dried paint. Not what we were expecting or wanted. I returned the paint to the Bognor Store and explained the problem and was told that as the paint was 'durable' that was why the finish had a sheen. To be fair to the store my money was refunded without fuss and I bought the B&Q basic Classic Red Matt - which is Matt - and am pleased with the results. Perhaps this paint should be re-labelled as by no stretch of the imagination is it Matt!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Lovely but hard work I decided to use Matt instead sheen. I painted on top of a lilac sheen. It took 4 coats so twice as much paint as I had anticipated or budgeted for. The finish is lovely however. What a fantastic colour.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Big disappointment! To start with this paint does NOT have a matt finish and it does reflect light! Both said to be the opposite on the paint properties. It does not have the beautiful red colour of the original basic matt emulsion. I have painted a wall with it and wasted my money as I now will have to re-paint it to get a good matt finish I required. I will not buy your paint again if I can't trust what "It say's on the can".
