    Default dulux bathroom and kitchen paints

    Real-Debrid

    has anyone else out there used the new bathroom and kitchen paints by dulux? the anti steam and mold stuff? used it on a bathroom the other day and the stuff is a nightmare!! by the time you cut in a wee wall say 2 mins....... then go to roller it the rollers pulling off the paint you just applied by brush. horrible stuff!!

    Use Johnstones Acrylic Eggshell. It does the same and it's easier to apply. Done my bathroom and HS&L with it.

    is that dulux aswell first choice? id rather paint the bathrooms and kitchens with softsheen opposed to this new bathroom and kitchen paints its far easier even though you have to be careful with the softsheen as it can go patchy. maybe dulux should look into improving the bathroom and kitchen paints. verry plasticy film when its applied its fine when the stuff is on it dries in well and solid its just applying it thats a nightmare dont think you could touch it up easily either think it would require a full coat

    i think thats another paint to avoid then....

    the only makes of paint we will use is dulux & match maker & glidden thats the only paints we like good coverage and mostly easy to touch up which is a good thing like if after weve finished the job the client knocks or scuffs the walls they can easily touch it up themselfs

    ...... crown & johnstones is poor quality verry thin and coverage same with a few other brands.
    have used eco friendly paints that have cost over 150 a ten litre tub and the stuff was crap from germany stank of oranges....... 90m2 per tin and poor coverage
    same with the oil for the oak floor the stuff was eco friendly too and turned out crap compaired to the oil we usually use their stuff left the oak looking unfinished

    We have found Crown to be Ok, but dont use Johnstones at the moment.
    All the new eco paints are not a patch on the old solvent based, but we will have no options soon!!

    ah trust me il never use johnstones again! got a tub of their white emulsion a few weeks ago as the shop didnt have any 10litres of matchmaker or dulux and after a coat you could still see the plasterboard & after two it looked like one coat of matchmaker 3 coats we had to give the ceilings and covings its verry thin and wattery too many splashes off it

    not keen on the lafarge universal primer either...... people on here have said the coverage is better than a coat of matchmaker or dulux..... and that one coat of it is the equivilant of 2 coats of emulsion...... this is not true as we used it on wet zones as a base coat and it wasnt any better coverage than emulsion

    only diffrence is ....... 40 a tub 10litre twice the price of emulsion and i suppose it will stop paint flaking off over the years but we`ll see how long it lasts but the dulux bathroom and kitchen paints will never flake off anyway steam and water retardant and mold resistant for ten years....

    its another of the dulux range all paints with the (ICI) on the tin are made by dulux........ match maker supercover

    excellent coverage really thick paint but spreads out easily maybe if in doubt thin the cutting down gear down a bit notthat you have to if you give it a really good mix up

    not sure if its available in alot of colours as the place we get it only stocks it in white and magnolia but im sure it does have a colour range....... cheaper than buying dulux white & magnolia in 5 litre tins

    yeah glidden is another of dulux range of paints lol you should ask them next time your in if they could get you matchmaker. its great stuff like say we painted a womans wall brown dark brown as a feature wall and it was too strong so she got a lighter one we gave it a coat of magnolia match maker and it coverd the brown with one coat which most paints wouldnt have done then on with the light brown saves alot of time and money 18.50 for 10 litres here but youd probably get it cheaper there if youget a chance id say give it a try

    ive seen the name "permaglaze" before somewhere but never seen the product. we just settle for dulux as the colourcentre has a mixer

    dulux is expensive, but consistent and you know where you are with it.

    i agree with you it is an expencive paint but its usually all newbuilds we do the last 5 weve done have all been white walls and ceilings so its just been white matchmaker opposed to dulux 5litre tins

    when it comes to wet zones we use the lafarge primer 40 for 10 litres
    and then bathroom paint or softsheen

    but houses with colours its usually white matchmaker on ceilings and dulux colours on walls

    unless its like a house we done mint green walls............ dark green coving and mint whisper ceiling......... then yellow walls and ceiling and terrocota coving

    worst colourings ever but thats what the clients wanted lol made us chuckle still do thinking about it
