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

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

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.

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 Amazing colour 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!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Desperately poor quality 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.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Does not do what it says on tin. Chose this colour, was not available so had it specially mixed (Valspar). Overall colour was great, however when applied to walls it was very patchy even after applying several coats. Will not use again, very disappointed.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Thin Paint What can i say, the paint is very thin, once it was applied to the wall all the light repairs to the wall showed, second application slightly better but still showed, now i need to purchase another 2.5L tub, third time lucky, remember this one wall only. Don't waste your money like i have.
