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.

  • 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
  • Control air pollutants by choosing products with lower solvent levels.
  • Great coverage in just one coat, saving you time and money

How to paint a wall & ceiling

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 5 out of 5 by from great paint All round I brought this a few weeks ago to paint my living room, it’s gone on with one coat. It’s a tad darker than I thought but looks really nice. my kids like to touch the walls with their sticky greasy hands and even though it’s a Matt paint it has turned out to be washable and repels the grease marks!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Covered in 2 coats Was the colour we has looking for and for the price it covered well and was very nice to apply to the walls

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Good Value For a one coat paint it doesn't cover 100% we had to recoat. Having said that the coverage is pretty good for the price and we only had to do a really quick touch up on certain areas.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from Its dark grey Bought this for a feature wall in the downstairs cloakroom. It looks quite light on the same in the shop and on the lid. It also looks light when you first apply the wet coat. But as it dries it gets darker to a shade we wouldnt necessarily have chosen. Also it should cover in one coat, no chance, needs at least two. Would I buy it again, probably not.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Very thick paint We bought this to cover 3 small walls (not full walls, I might add) in our bedroom and we had to go out and purchase more paint to finish the job. For perspective, Valspar paint of the same 2.5Ltr, did my whole kitchen with extra left over. I would say, buy Valspar over B&Q normal/standard brand any day.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from There’s much better paint out there Advertised as one coat and it took three. I’d recommend staying away from this paint and going with another brand. I’m surprised they can even advertise it as one coat. A big diy letdown.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Really don't bother! I bought a large quantity of this paint for our new house and I totally regret it! I never expect 'one coat paint' to be exactly that, but I've had to do an average of 4 coats in each room (this is 'Colours Premium' by the way). On the hall, stairs and landing I've used 'Colours Durable' in Custard Cream - Matt. A really nice colour but I so wish I'd bought Dulux or Crown. It doesn't cover, the 'finish' is completely different using a brush to cut-in to the roller. Some of it has bubbled and pealed, some of it has crazed and these are all properly prepared walls with no issues. The final tub of matt paint, despite being labeled as such, was actually silk! I give up and I will never ever buy B&Q paint again. An expensive mistake to make both in terms of money and time!
