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 Much better than expected I bought this for first couple of coats on newly plastered ceiling.It was brilliant -not thin,as I expected.A very good quality product at a very reasonable price.Well done B&Q

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Just what I needed I needed a cheep emulsion that I could use to prime new plaster and this was ideal. Watered the first coat down 50% then the second coat 25%. Gave a good plain white colour which is ideal now for hanging wallpaper. Actually found the end result better than expected. Probably wouldn't use for main covering of ceiling as it is quite thin so there would be a lot of splashes but just what I needed without spending a lot of money.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Does the job This paint does the job but has a really funny smell afterwards. Not very pleasant. Having to buy silk paint to go over it to mask the smell

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Smelly I have to give it a star???? It stinks, it really does. I could deal with the new paint smell, but two weeks on, it still stinks and not of paint. Dries on nice and white though!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not good We bought this to put an undercoat to cover a very pale blue wall before repainting it. This paint was almost transparent and needed at least 4 coats before it even disguised the pale blue - very disappointed

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Shame had to give it a star Awful. Looks as cheap and poor as the price suggests. The girlfriend won't be trusted to buy paint again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Avoid at all costs ! The only reason you would buy this is if you are a compulsive painter. That's because you will be forever trying to cover a single wall or ceiling with this pot of what is effectively white WATER ! This is so thin it covers nothing, after 2 coats on a white ceiling it still didn't look like I had started and could see every mark, no matter how small. Guesss it's true you get what you pay for, pay for white water, that's what you get ! Tried to submit this with NO STARS as there is not a single thing about it that warrants a positive comment but the form won't let me so 1 star all round. (and that is VERY grudgingly) Atrocious !
