Hi everyone,

We've been renovating an old 1900s terraced how and finally have plaster on all the walls.
I have a decorator coming in on Wednesday to spray a mist coat onto all the dry plaster (he's using Leyland Trade emulsion watered down for the mist coats...).

I have a 30% discount with Crown Decorator Centres so I'm keen to use it before it expires at the end of today and it happens that Crown do a pretty good imitation of the F&B colour my other half likes...

The decorator has advised me I need approximately 50 litres of paint for the walls - but which finish should I go with?
The decorator says any of their Matt paint should be fine - but he normally uses Valspar or Dulux so suggested asking around for recommendations...

We have a baby on the way, so the other half is thinking of their scrubbable Matt - but I'm looking at the price and thinking it looks expensive...

Do any regular users of Crown's trade stuff have any suggestions on which product to go with?
