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 Love it! I used to avoid B&Q own brand as I thought it was costly, then one day I got it as I couldn't get my usual paint...I've never looked back. I paints well, its got great coverage, it goes much further than expected and is durable.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fabulous colour Bought to paint a garage door. Went on great, no streaks, 2 coats but could have got away with 1. Painted small fence and a double gate too, still got half a tin left. Would describe the colour as sage green in some lights, pale grey in other, The colour is soft and creamy. Perfect. Would buy this brand again without hesitation.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased this paint as it was the cheapest of all of the exterior paints on offer. It certainly does not behave like the cheapest paint. It is excellent. The colour is very attractive and true to the colour depicted on the can and it dries to the same colour not darker or lighter or totally different like some paints. The consistency is spot on not too thick or too runny. Goes on evenly and dries quickly. Before this I tried Dulux Weathershield which was vastly more expensive and was awful, so I took it back and got this one. I only wish B&Q did more colours as its the best I've ever used. I used it to paint my old shed and everyone has commented on how they love the colour and how good my beaten up shed now looks!Like new. It has also deluged with rain in the past few days and the paint surface just shrugs the water off and it stays dry! Didn't think I'd ever gush about paint! Try it - its brilliant.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Product Painted a selection of old furniture in order to furnish a summerhouse. Paint applied smoothly, gave a lovely solid finish when applied over primer/undercoat, and dried really, really quickly - ( done outside on a sunny day ). Touch dry in no time. Great. Furniture looks really good and coordinated. Would recommend.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Did I miss something? I bought this paint to do my skirtings in the kitchen. I bought SATIN but when I opened the tin, it had the greasy scent of gloss. I began to paint and the consistency was that of a gloss paint, which I don't like and is the reason I chose satin. I painted inside with doors and windows open on a dry, sunny day. The instructions said re-coat in 12 hours (which I initially thought was odd as it is described as a 'one coat' paint) 18 hours later and it is still sticky, although it does need another coat because I applied the first coat thinly and it is patchy. It has a gloss finish, not satin :( I will take it back and ask to exchange it for another tin. I will update with my this space...... On the plus side, it is a wonderful colour and complements the Dulux Overtly Olive kitchen paint beautifully :)
