I was in B&Q today picking up some paint card thingies and getting a rough price - on the way out of the shop I noticed the B&Q own brand paints (in see-through containers). One of them (called 'water') looked to be the exact colour I wanted and I noted that the 2.5L pot was £14.99.

So after that longish story - does anyone know if the B&Q paints come in 5L tubs and, if so, how much they are? Will save me another trip to find out!

Thanks all.

Do they have a website that might answer your :?:

TBH I only buy Crown or Dulux as cheap paint will need more coats and cost more.

Get a decent One Coat type paint i.e. Dulux One Coat and you should be fine :)

they do certain colours in 5lt only the most popular ones.
#4
yes they do, not sure on the price though careful though they have different types of paint like for the kitchen/bathroom/living room

you mite know this but i didnt

and this paint is fine done my bedroom and bathroom in b&q's own paint and went on fine

I used these a couple of years ago and to be honest, it was a bit weak to say the least. Needed 3 coats really to look a good even solid colour so you don't really save anything in the long run.
They may have improved the quality since then but I've never used it again. Dulux do the colour matching that B&Q do, I'm sure they do it in-store with the same machine they use for their own paint, worth asking!

I have bought B&Q paint (or should I say water) in the past ..... never again! It does not seem to cover like the well known brands.

I wouldn`t recommend the B&Q paint either I`m afraid. If it`s the shade that you like you can get them to mix you up that colour in the dulux range.

The B&Q paints are just as good quality as the named brands,
I work on the paint dept in B&Q and we sell loads of it and have not had any complaints about it,
They dont sell the water colour in 5 lt tubs as they only carry certain colours in this size.
The prices for a 2.5lt is £10. 98 and £17.98 5lt

Hmmm... I am SURE it was £14.98 for the 2.5L :? For £10.98 I would give it a go on one room and see how it goes.

Be wary of getting one mixed up for you. I did it last year, painted 3 quarters of a room and run out, went down and got the same mix again and noticed it was a very slightly different shade! All it takes is one extra dribble of the ink the guy said when i complained!

B&Q paint is ok i think 5L is approximatley £14:98 i think, I used the colours paint the other week and found it really gd, seemed quite thick and the coverage is very good i though, Like the other guy said they sell alot and always will

On their website, they have got the 'matt paint everywhere' 2.5L for £14.98, which must be the one I saw or they have the 'matt' paint 2.5L for £10.98 and then they have the 'silk' paint 5L for £17.98 - can anyone advise which I should go for?

I think I will give it a go but just buy for one room for now - the price of paint has certainly gone up since the last time I bought any (about 7 years ago!) and there weren't any sign of any offers going on :-(

Thanks for that, maybe we need a vote if the paint's good or not :giggle:

Seems the price is £17.98 for 5L in the colour I want, but it's silk which I don't know whether to get :?

B&Q mixed paint is ok , not the value stuff tho

as i property developer we used b&q paint to reduce costs and found on plastered walls we needed three coats for a solid finish. we then used wickes trade emulsion and it only needed one coat for the same finish
