Paint advice

I'm in the middle of decorating a new kitchen/dining room extension. I've painted the newly plastered walls with white Dulux trade supermatt. I was going to paint another colour on top but I've decided I like the whiteness. However the supermatt is not very hard wearing and its already scuffed in a few places and I imagine that the walls are not going to survive much wiping down. Can anyone recommend a paint I could use that will look similar - I don't want anything with a shine to it.

Leave it for a few months until you are sure the walls have dried fully, you did right in using supermatt on new plaster as it breathes allowing the surface to dry.

Repaint in two coats of Dulux Diamond 10X it's matt but pretty hard wearing, the claim you can scrub it is a bit optimistic ;) but it is about the most durable matt I have used.
