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.

How to prepare a wall for painting

How to prepare a wall 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.

Primer buying guide

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 5 out of 5 by from Great Product i bought this paint and have done a metal shed, wood fascia boards and our wheel barrow which now looks like new. easy to use and found it brushed and rollered on equally well. i am delighted. it goes a long long way and is as happy on wood as metal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great durable one coat I used about a dozen tins of this paint last year to paint my decking and 300 feet of fencing and it looks great, all with one coat (with the exception of putting 2 coats on the smooth decking handrails). It has lasted through the winter, and will only need touching up on a couple of parts of the fence. I have now also used it to paint matching raised beds - again one coat and they look great.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from More like 3 coat Coverage not very good, used on garage door with a roller and have had to apply three coats, nice finish when done

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Aweful, not external like it says, not one coat! Sadly its another let down, is there really any paint on the planet that can do it in one coat? I have not found one in 37 years! This one is definitely not either, neither is it for external painting, I tested the area I painted 1 week after painting it and it wiped off with a wet cloth! Its expensive paint and practically useless if you are not painting indoors.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from worst paint I've ever had to buy This "one coat" paint is absolutely awful. Genuinely the worst paint ever. After spending 25 minutes stirring in an attempt to thicken it up, I did one metre of skirting boards before giving up and returning it. I probably would have had a better coverage with water colour paints! Let the first coat dry and tried a second, still terrible and streaky. Promptly returned it.
