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 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 4 out of 5 by from Durable This paint looked dreadful on the first coat of my wooden garage door. (I did use undercoat with it). The second coat, however, looks really good and repels rain like the wax treatment on a car.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good quality This is a quality product with good opacity. Beware of its propensity to run on vertical surfaces, but otherwise I would recommend it, particularly for outdoor use. (This particular tin was used to finish off a refurbished wooden wheelbarrow - display purposes only)!

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Nice Paint but be aware The picture looks very dark and so does the label, however the paint is brighter blue than we thought. If you're looking for a dark blue don't be fooled this isn't dark blue.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from At least it's blue Used this for my front door and to say disappointing is an understatement. On a well prepared door, with a good undercoat and a nice key on the surface this paint is opaque, with terrible coverage. It's also extremely runny which when combined with the opacity means lots of drips and runs from trying to get good coverage. However I'm sure there's even worse products out there pretending to be gloss paint.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Oxford or Chelsea Blue? Decided on this paint as we wished for a Navy Blue Paint for our window cills to compliment a new Navy composite front door. From the colour examples displayed on wooden squares in store along with consulting the colour swabs on the tins, the 'Sandtex Oxford Blue' appeared to be the required darker shade as opposed to the 'Dulux', or 'Colours' options. Unfortunately did not consult product reviews essentially due to purchasing a long standing reputable name, but can certainly concur that the actual colour is far lighter and more akin to a Chelsea/Royal Blue, as opposed to an Oxford/Navy Blue. After speaking to the store we now find that as we have used an oil based product we cannot now opt for the bespoke colour option as this is a water based system, currently feeling let down. Any suggestions as to a Navy/Oxford Blue exterior gloss, albeit seemingly now limited to oil based products
