Product details

Product information

This emulsion paint is suitable for and covers up to 11 m² per litre on average.

  • Suitable for Ceilings & walls

Features and benefits

This emulsion has been specifically designed to give you the perfect paint finish in just one coat. Its concentrated formulation means that one coat will give you a high quality finish in a fraction of the time it would take with other standard emulsions. 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

The paint went on well and did the job in one coat. The final colour was a little darker than expected

Does what it says on the tin!

I bought two tins doubting the ability to cover in one coat but was pleasantly surprised and had to return one. Covers beautifully. Lovely vibrant colour. Would highly recommend and I will only buy 'Once' again.

over priced rubbish

we bought this paint because we liked the colour but the paint itself is terrible it dried patchy and streaky so gave it a second coat thinking it may help but same result total waste of money.

Brilliant paint

The dulux once paint is great! The first dawn colour is lovely and exactly what we wanted. Not too dark to paint the whole living room, but does actually look blue. One coat was indeed enough for almost all of it, with just a few touch ups required. Definitely worth it.
