Product Information

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.

  • Our toughest most versatile paint
  • Great coverage in just one coat, saving you time and money
  • We recommend using a one coat roller for optimal application
  • For best results follow the instructions on the tin carefully, a second coat may be required if overpainting a darker colour with a lighter top coat
  • Scrubbable for removing marks and dirt

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

Interior paint buying guide

For a simple way to update a room, you can’t beat a lick of paint. Whether you’re putting your stamp on your new home, or are renovating a room that needs some TLC, interior paint can transform any space in the house in a few hours.

There are lots of paints available for different surfaces and it can be a bit daunting if you aren’t sure what all the different types, finishes and features mean. We are going to talk you through the ins and outs of interior paint so that you can buy the right paint with confidence.

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 Lovely Finish Very pleased with the end result of this product... it's one of lighter varieties of gray, had considered charcoal and grey slate, but I have a smaller room and the other colours would have been too dark. This was perfect and elegant, went on evenly in one coat (applied liberally) as advertised, however I had a darker colour feature wall, and a second coat was required as stated and really happy with the end result.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brilliant paint! I've just recently bought a house and literally made it brand new, and honestly if you are looking for a white/grey contrast house, this is perfect!!!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from painting a bed frame so a pal asks me to paint her bed frame , i found this paint in the shade she likes. so i begin by sugar soaping the frame to remove any greas and dirt. The paint is easy to use and looks good

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Two coats I love the colour of this paint, and it was a good match. However this definitely needed two coats as the previous colour really showed through.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Very patchy Probably the worst paint I have used in terms of application. After 2 coats it came up a lot better but nowhere near the colour that I expected however it is still a nice colour, more of a blue than grey.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not one coat! Needed three coats to cover a wall previously painted a light mocha cover. Wouldn't buy again

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Awkward to work with and you need more than 1 coat I had 2 small walls to paint, bordered them and tried to roller in the rest but the border began peeling off! Also dried unevenly despite an even technique. Had to buy a 2nd tub and do a second coat. I will find out tomorrow whether a 3rd is required. It dries too quickly considering it's not advertised as such and it's also very viscous and difficult to work with. I would not recommend.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Waste of money!! I will never buy B&Q paints again, this is supposed to be a premium paint, don't make me laugh, it's appalling! I used this paint on a newly plastered wall, having firstly painted the wall with a couple of coats of basic white emulsion to soak in, then I have applied at least 3 coats and even more on the edges, as the outline of the metal corner plates is showing as a different shade, even though this was not visible on the pre painted wall or after the white paint and the other major issue is that the paint has crackled and looks like it is starting to flake. Don't waste your money, buy Dulux or another branded paint. The last time I bought a B&Q product was a varnish, which I used on my banister and it never dried, so I had to rub it all off and start again with a Ronseal product.
