    Good morning all,

    We've recently embarked on a new Utility Room project which also includes painting the kitchen.

    It's a new build house (3.5 years old but this is the first lick of paint the kitchen will have had) plus there's some bare plaster where we've moved doors as part of the Utility Room formation.

    I had a chat with our decorator before he started the Utility Room (due to the Covid situation he started that in early March but hasn't done the Kitchen yet) and told him that we wanted the paint to be as "wipe-able" as possible. I appreciate that scrubbing any painted surface isn't really possible, but I'm talking about the odd splodge of cooking sauce, mud from the child/dog etc...

    As a result we picked a colour from Crown's "Kitchen & Bathroom" range but he said he would use a different product (same colour) - Isomat.

    It's now been a few weeks since the Utility Room was finished and there are a couple of scuff/splodge marks that the mrs has tried wiping off but they won't budge. I'm now debating whether to insist he uses something different when he does the main Kitchen.

    My question is what product would you guys recommend?

    I always use Dulux Kitchen paint it's easy to apply and wipeable.

    I would second Dulux, I always use the Easycare in high traffic area's like the hall, and then Kitchen and Bathroom when doing these rooms. Has always been pretty durable for me and if you go with the matt finish it is easy enough to go over area's without if being obvious as it just blends in again.
