Features and Benefits

This emulsion has been specifically designed to give you the perfect paint finish in just one coat. Its concentrated formulation means that one coat will give you a high quality finish in a fraction of the time it would take with other standard emulsions. 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.

  • 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
  • Control air pollutants by choosing products with lower solvent levels.
  • Great coverage in just one coat, saving you time and money

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.

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 Great Dulux paint! I bought this about a month ago, it covers wonderfully it covered over dark red with just one coat. Very pleased with this item.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Always used dulux paint but this was the first time we used "once". We tried it because we wanted to cover a large living room without the hassle of putting on several coats. This paint was excellent - it went on smoothly and it was creamy and thick. It really did only need one coat and we finished all 60 metres squared in a day with this. So pleased with it. Definitely recommend especially as it was 2 for £30 at the time :)

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Covered patterned wallpaper Used the Once range for ither rooms so used it again recently in the fromt room. We did 2 coats of white emulsion on the patterned wallpaper before putting on the Once paint. When wet, the pattern shone through but as it dried, it disappeared. Phew!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from gorgeous colour. and one coat bliss the paint covered a well marked and scratched magnolia wall really good. the paint goes on a little thicker than the usual emulation paints. at first I thought the wall would have needed 2 coats but once dry it's brilliant. The paint looked quite dark and you could see roller marks while it was wet, but it dries evenly and lighter too. the finish is beautiful. Downside is the same as any water based paint... fingers on walls are a big no no as even this paint leaves finger marks/smudges behind, the key is not to touch the wall. or buy silk, but I don't like the shiney finish silk paint leaves behind. I tried endurance matt paint, but took a total of 5 coats and 2 paint cans later for one of my rooms.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from It's not as grey as it's made out to be! Did a few reviews first as many people mentioned it's a light grey. This is not the case. Me and my wife decided to freshing up the kitchen with a nice modern light grey. First we applied two coats of dulex white just so we were working on a nice standard base background colour. We used a tester kit of chic shadow and it looked a nice light grey. We went for the 2.5 dulex once chic shadow and finished off the whole kitchen. Next morning I just wasn't too happy with the finish. It's a light grey but with light lilac purple through it. Looks ok but in certain light the lilac purple really shows up. Stick with a soild grey or natural slate.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Bad coverage Poor quality. Cannot wipe it at all once it's dry with a damp cloth or it just comes off. Worse paint I've ever used.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Tin says saves you time - I don't think so We have just used this 'Once' paint to do the hall stairs and landing. It really is very poor. It will not tolerate even being touched without leaving marks. But the worst part about it is when we did some feature walls with wallpaper. You have no choice but to overlap slightly with the wallpaper onto the painted wall and then to do the cuts, on every other paint I have used the excess wallpaper paste wipes off with a damp sponge. On this paint it wipes off as well but then leaves terrible smears when it dries, it will not overpaint properly either, when the smears are overpainted they dry inconsistently leaving patches and brush lines. If you see any imperfections for example if the carpet fitter catches it, and he will, and it will leave a mark that doesn't wipe off, you cannot paint over it as when it dries it stands out. Not happy, tin says 'saves you time' when really it takes more time and the end product is still not acceptable.
