    Hi! I painted my ceilings with Armstead Contract Matt but I prefer a very matt finish and this one has a sheen in it. What can I use to get a flat finish with 0 % sheen?
    I also attached a picture with my aunt's ceiling and this is what I would like.

    There's a great paint from dulux trade called durable. It is quite expensive though. I use Leyland trade on a lot of jobs for ceilings and find it dries lovely. Usually about 16 quid for 10 litres from screwfix!

    Thank you! I've just purchased Crown Vinyl Matt Trade. It says that has a flat finish.

    Just be careful with a vinyl as it usually has a slight sheen to it.

    Yeah avoid vinyl paints for flat finish.

    The Leyland trade paint will need a couple of coats and a long drying period between coats as it can peel it's previous coat off if you go over it to much
