I was quite impressed with Leyland Trade matt emulsion.  I avoid Farrow & Ball...their paint is like making love in a canoe.

If money is no object then you can't beat Little & Greene. Their paint is superb.

Depends on the colour.  Most of our house has been painted with wickes paints.  2 rooms that are very deep colours (blood red and a chocolate brown, can't remember the actual colour names) have faded very badly.  The more neutral colours still look ok


Was it the "Trade" Wickes paint that you used?

Not my trade but, I have heard Dulux is the paint to avoid lately, Poor coverage, fading, yellowing (whites) etc

Wickes Trade Paints - Any good?
May 14th, 2018, 3:49pm
 
Just wondering how good Wickes Trade Paints are?  They have a good price for their "Wickes Trade Vinyl Silk White Emulsion Paint".  I usually use Dulux silk vinyl (not trade paint).

Anyone used Wickes Trade paint?  any good?  or should I stick to the standard Dulux?
