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.

  • Control air pollutants by choosing products with lower solvent levels

How to prepare walls for painting

How to prepare walls for painting

While it can be tempting to get painting as soon as possible when you want to decorate a room, it’s worth taking the time to make sure your room and surfaces are best prepared before you begin. Getting the preparation right is crucial to achieving the perfect finish. It’ll also help to keep things neater and cleaner, and reduce the need for additional coats of paint. No paint can completely cover dirty or uneven surfaces, so tackling this at the start of the project avoids the need for extra work later on.

In this guide we’ll walk you through the most important steps to take, and show you how to;

  • Empty your room ready for decorating, and protect fixtures and fittings you aren't painting
  • Clean your walls to help paint adhere
  • Fill holes and cracks and smooth your walls for the best possible finish
  • Prime stained surfaces or those which have not been painted before

Once you've completed these tasks you should have a smooth, even surface ready to be painted.

Buyer's guide to primers

If you're painting on bare wood, plaster or metal surfaces, you'll get a better result if you use a primer first. It provides a surface which the paint can bond to and stops the paint being absorbed. Find out more what you need and for what surface.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Spend Your money on a better paint ! I decided to buy this cheaper paint to repaint my garage door which was a bottle green colour. I wish that I spent the extra money on a better paint. 3 coats on the door and you can still see the green through in places.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Read the label - this is a water based gloss. Bought this cheaper paint to spruce up my front door. I think the problem with this product is that it is a water based gloss, not a solvent based one. My solvent undercoat is still coming through after two coats of this gloss. Read these reviews and decided it would be best to give up on this product and go and buy a solvent based one. Wasted my money, you live and learn. Maybe ok if you are starting from base wood, not covering over old layers.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Awful, Awful, Awful Abysmal, 4 coats of paint applied with a quality brush over a properly applied primer resulting in a royal blue streaky mess. Probably going to have to strip and repaint, very disappointed, wish I'd seen these reviews first. Would have given it zero stars if i could.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Don't waste your money! Bought this paint 4 days ago to paint the front door, followed the instructions on the tin, door looked an absolute state, really streaky and patchy, had to sand it off and start again with a decent brand of paint, that will teach me to buy cheap paint, b&qs oil based exterior paint was great but not available now. Wish I had have looked on here first for reviews.. that'll teach me! Plus its not midnight blue... its a bright royalish blue! One star review is far too high, no option for 0 stars!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bright blue! Awful streaky paint. Water based so peels off easily if based. Anything but midnight blue - more bright royal blue. Really disappointing!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from one star is too high 2 coats and now I need to buy a second tin. I can't decide if I should keep put on further coats or just try for a similar colour in a better brand. I've had the Colours brand in emulsions and oil based gloss before and they were fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from I've learnt an expensive lesson My decorator asked me to get exterior gloss - which I did. However, this is water-based gloss and after five coats my front door and garage door looked dreadful, patchy and unacceptable. I then had to buy more paint, Sandtex, oil-based gloss this time and pay an extra £350.00 to my decorator. Not a good experience.
