    I'm repainting my flat in white. I have done all the woodwork in Dulux Pure Brilliant White Eggshell (which is a lovely white), now I want to match the walls. I got Dulux Pure Brilliant White Matt emulsion but it turned out to be CREAM! Then I got Dulux Trade Supermatt White and that turned out to be yellow (see the image). Dulux Trade Pure Brilliant White Vinyl Matt is cream colour too when you put it next to the eggshell... I just want white walls to match my woodwork! I have read Leyland Trade PBW emulsion is cream colour too... I don't want to go down the route of mixing colours. Which brand emulsion is white-WHITE? White without the yellow, cream or any other hint, hue, tint or shade. Just white. EB76FD68-C8B6-40D2-86DB-B107E500D096.JPG

    Johnstone’s brilliant white works every time. You can buy it from B and M bargains. Hope this helps.

    Thank you. Which one though? I see they have few options for Johnstone's brilliant white matt.

    They are all good, I’ve never had an issue with any. But I will forward the one I use most.

    different manufacturers decide which white to use as their brilliant white.

    RAL 9010 is pure white and the closest, but some use RAL 9016 traffic white or RAL 9003 signal white

    Ive no idea if you can find out which white it is -I doubt if its on the can.

    Johnstones is pretty good paint

    Thanks Notch7. I'll do research into the RAL numbers. Who thought it be so complicated to get a white paint?
