    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.

    • Perfect for use on interior walls and ceilings
    • Water based and virtually odour free
    • Easy and pleasant to use
    • Low light reflectance

    We've had great results with the paint coverage on walls. We initially painted everything white matt - but prior to that, we cleaned all our walls with sugar soap. You will need to do two coats to get it right without any patchy spots as someone else mentioned.. It's a bit tricky to get even but I believe it's just a finding a painting method that works well (for any darker colour in my opinion).

    The colour is beautiful - nothing matches it - it's vibrant. I tried several different colours from other brand similar to this, but this was by far the most vibrant out of them all! Should mention that it is a dark colour compared to your usual whites, yellows etc so good lighting is a must to really bring out it's vibrancy - everybody that's seen our new walls have all commented how amazing the colour is.

    What others have said about it not being durable holds true. Admittedly I think it's due to the type of paint, this is just a matt emulsion - not a matt vinyl emulsion or satin paint which has different properties altogether. Yes if you wet it or mark it, then try to 'clean' it (via rubbing dry or wet cloth), paint will come off - which obviously is a disadvantage. We painted our corridor walls with this which is a high traffic area. I think it would be perfect for a feature wall that isn't likely to get ruined by water or high traffic.

    I have also just seen there is now a 'silk' option for this paint on the B&Q website - that might be more durable. I would suggest you get tester pots. If you are really concerned about smudges, marks and want to 'wipe them away', look into the premium paints that B&Q sell. There are a few premium paint brands that are similar to the pumpkin orange colour that market being durable, easy to clean etc - ask the B&Q staff about these.. But bear in mind there is a premium price for those paints!

    Disappointed

    First time ever using this B & Q Matt Emulsion. Used a roller and a brush to piece- out around the ceilings and corners. The walls of the room to be painted had been prepared with flat white matt emulsion. Given the strident colour Pumpkin Matt it should have covered the walls easily, however it dried blotchy and required far more coats, than other makes, I've used. Also any attempts to wipe away any marks on the wall with a dampened cloth removes the paint. This paint is not durable. I will never use it again, even if it's cheaper than other brand's B & Q sell's.

    Worst paint ever had

    Breathtakingly low quality and shamefully inadequate in all regards. Does NOT cover well, and once dry the slightest touch - the lightest touch with a finger - permenantly marks the wall. Total waste of money and more importantly, the time and effort involved.

    Waste of money
