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.

  • Our toughest most versatile paint
  • 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
  • Scrubbable for removing marks and dirt

How to paint a wall & 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.

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 4 out of 5 by from An actual one coat paint Bought this yesterday and was worried after reading the negative reviews, so much so i asked the assistant if i could bring it back if it was awful. I painted it on top of a freshly painted matt white base. It is gloopy and thick but it looks glossy like its got a good bit of oil in. Once the roller absorbed it in, it went on well. If you take your time it is a one coat paint. With it being white underneath you could see where it had missed, was easy to fix. Its went on better than any dulux i have used in the past and im only a novice. Lovely colour too, very happy indeed. Didnt splash everywhere so was minimal splatter.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from i used to be a painter and decorator I used to paint houses for a living. That's right - everyday. Now i thought i knew how to get a brush and paint smooth- cut in and roller. Most of the time you can apply paint with a roller whatever way you want as long as you dont get raised lines on the walls and as long as you cover the wall - the finished result should be perfect- should be unless you use this poor of an excuse product that they call paint. Hands down this is the worst paint i have ever used. I have applied 4 coats to one wall with a 2.5ltr pot and nothing works. all the tricks dont work- my final coat in a hope of desperation i kept on watering it down- next coat kept on getting more water- to about 50% water in the hope it would cover smooth without patches - and ofcourse it looks like my child painted the wall. Every coat is patchy. I have had patches on the wall before - one other time when i used colours premium- and another time when the wall was damp. Never have i had any patches ever before- if i cant do it and all these other people cant do it stay away from this poo - should be taken off the market, how can colours premium be allowed to sell this product?

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not do what it says on the tin! 'Any room, any surface, one coat' what a joke. Now on coat three and still patchy coverage. How it is supposed to be scrubbable is beyond me when it marks and scuffs at the slightest touch, and that's in an adult bedroom, not a particularly high wear area . The colour is spot on but I am dreading the carpet fitters coming next week because some sort of knock or scuff is inevitable and will mean a new coat is required after they have finished. I will never buy this paint again

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Very poor quality and is never a 1 coat premium This paint is appalling for the price, doesn't coat in one coat and is so patchy it looks like a checker board.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Not the best The colour and price were absolutely perfect but unfortunately the paint has a 'sticky' consistency and is difficult to apply evenly. In the end we purchased a different product which was a slightly different colour but which allowed a much easier and quicker job.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from awful product Have tried applying with brush, sponge and roller but can not get an even coverage. Have tried watering it down for a second coat of this 'one coat' product. Will definitely need more paint but resent spending more money on this rubbish so I'm shopping around for something similar elsewhere.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do not buy!! Gorgeous colour paint but it absolutely rubbish like think gloop doesn't cover in 'one' coat but doesn't cover over the first layer, tyred with a roller and paint brush, now on layer 4!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Unbelievably bad no-one really expects to cover anything with one coat, but we're now on coat five of a single wall, having used an entire 2.5L tub of this junk. it covers no problem, but not evenly. not even close. we've applied with brush and with roller, and the finish is so uneven we're now going to have to buy a decent paint in a similar colour to cover this up. never again.
