Features and Benefits

Dulux Silk is a smooth and creamy emulsion paint for use on walls and ceilings, giving a delicate shine finish. Silk emulsion looks especially good on perfectly plastered or skimmed walls. 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.

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.

In this guide, we'll be;

  • Painting the ceiling, coving and walls in a room

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.

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.

Office space with different paints on the wall

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 Quality from Dulux as always! Lovely colour that was a treat to roller on. Two coats covered the previous colour beautifully and we are delighted with the end result. Dulux is unbeatable!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from You get what you pay for! I've tried every cheap paint under the sun, but always come back to Dulux, there are one or two others that are almost as good,also from B&Q, but in the end, for me, Dulux has it. I've decorated 12 flats with this stuff in the last 2 years and it covers almost everything in two coats. If the colour you are covering is very dark, put a coat of white emulsion on first.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great neutral colour A lovely neutral colour which gives a classy finish . We always use the silk as you can wash it more easily but it is thankfully a very very low sheen

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Dulux Silk Natural Calico Great paint covers well and that slight sheen allows you to wipe off marks rather than the paint its self. I brought this 5Lt tin to touch up, as hall, landing and stairs are this shade and I dont want to repaint when this colour is discontinued.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from And I thought paint was paint! Bought this a few weeks back to brighten up a room. This product really worked! The room was previously a bdsm chamber and was painted black and dark red. So imagine my surprise when just two coats transformed the room. After emptying the room of bondage equipment, I open the tin, which isn't a tin, because it's plastic and whoa! it contain ed paint. I'm not an expert but it looked like paint, smelled like paint and tasted like paint (yum). For me, that was enough proof. The man in the shop said "You should get a roller!" ....I thought he was being a bit cheeky because I drive a citreon berlingo and it does me just fine. Besides I can't afford a roller. Anyhooooo..... after 12 days straight of "cutting in" using my grandsons paint brush from his painting set we got him for his 5th birthday, I needed a bigger brush for the rest of the walls. I asked my wife if she had a brush and surprisingly she said "yes! ....... ...on my dressing table" Bingo! We were up and running. The brush wasn't easy to use and a bit messy too, but I'm not an expert so could use some practice. Having said that the overall effect was great, even if it was a bit more textured than I wanted. When I showed my wife the finished job she was overcome with emotion, holding her hand over her mouth and I'm sure I saw a tear in hear eye. As she left the room she mumbled something about taking me to specsavers, which is a great reward for my efforts because I lost my glasses over Xmas and haven't had a chance to replace them. We'll done Dulux. I'm happy with it and my wife must be happy too because she said has told her solicitor all about it which was really nice of her. R.W.- Bexleyheap
