Zinsser AllCoat matt.

B&Q sell goodhome durable matt that is fine to use on woodwork according to spec. Your going to have to use a primer through.

Other option is Bradite One Can Matt

Loads of options

Why not bullseye 123 then apply the wall paint over? That's easiest
Thanks for quick reply
Didn't think wall colour would durable enough :) but a durable one might be

Other alternatives include dead flat waterbased varnish (eg polyvine) over the existing paint. You have to ensure that the surface is thoroughly vacuumed first, any carpet or clothing fibres will will be trapped in the varnish.
That was one of my options was just weary it might of yellowed the paint
I've used rocktop over paint. Makes it more smooth. These products won't go yellow. Just a clear water-based coating
Already on it
