Kitchen paint

Hi All,

I'm painting the kitchen prior to fitting the units.

I've done the ceiling using Dulux Trade Eggshell - brilliant white. Happy with the finish, water-based and the paint went on nicely with roller and brush

Once the missus has selected a colour I'll be doing the recently plastered walls. I'd like something with less sheen than the eggshell on the ceiling but that will holdup to being wiped down. I'd like it to go on as easily as the trade eggshell did and be water-based.

I've seen that Dulux do an EasyCare Kitchen Paint, Vinyl Matt and a Diamond Matt.

Can anyone discuss their experiences with these paints and give a recommendation?

Eggshell finish on ceiling a little unorthodox but if that is what the doctor ordered!….

matt finish on walls and ceilings is more forgiving on any imperfections and good quality Matt paints can be wiped too.

don’t be fooled by any gimmicky paint ranges for specific rooms - it’s a nonsense.

You need a durable matt finish paint from the trade manufacturers like johnstone’s or leyland or . Get yourself down to brewers or other professional paint merchant. Dulux do a trade range too but don’t bother buying any none trade products aimed at instagram housewives.
