Why?


Goes on so much better you'll only need one coat maybe 2 if you're unlucky. This stuff will definitely need 2 coats or probably 3. So much easier to paint with the trade especially for a novice.

I've been decorating for the past 20 years and I can tell you hand on heart you're wasting so much more time and effort using this carp. It's cheap watered down rubbish that will look like a DIY job.

Ask any professional decorator and they will all tell you the same. Try for yourself and I promise you'll always buy the trade. Costs double but you use a lot less and takes half the time with a much better finish.

Get the Dulux visualiser app so good for choosing the right colour. Think I paid £33 for a 5 litre tin last week that has done 2 good sized rooms with a litre to spare for touch ups.

Sounds like good advice, excuse my ignorance do you mean Dulux trade or is there a specific brand to look out for?

Many thanks for the info on the app didn't know something like that existed, very useful as we are decorating the main bedroom atm, also the advice on the trade paint so will give that a try as well.

Dulux trade all the way, there maybe good other brands but it's a minefield as some companies market their product as trade when it is not the same quality. I usually go for the vinyl matt finish which always serves me well.

Also buy a sheepskin roller, again costs more but it will last and it will serve you more than once, they also clean a lot easier.

I usually get mine from the builders merchant just tell them the colour from the visualiser app and they will mix. Try negotiate a price you may get a discount from them. I'm sure Wickes have the Dulux machines not sure about B&Q. Obviously whites and magnolias can be bought sepreately found Wickes to be the cheapest for them. Hope the helps!
Thanks for this op! Midway through our painting/decorating atm- Easter break ruined again!
My sister went out with a painter and decorator - she said she liked a mat finish.

You need to use gloss or wood paint to paint doors. This is for walls.

what a refreshing surprise to see some sensible dialogue. Can I ask how much would be an good price for a dulux trade 5ltr that you recommend?

Think I paid £33 at Travis Perkins for a 5 litre but that was with a discount. Wickes have 15% off this weekend. Think most merchants have the machines but don't pay the shelf price!!!

LOL
Always avoid pre mixed paints like this offer, its watery. (and hence, only £15 full price) Dulux colour mixed in store is similar quality to Dulux trade. (£20 something/ 5 liters,avoid D.I.Y. centers like B&Q,they are a rip off) For generic colours like Mag, always buy trade premixed (pref 10 litres, crown, dulux) it doesnt 'go off'. Make sure you put a bit of clingfilm on top of the remainder with the dulux 10 litre tubs,they dont re seal very well.
Permaglaze colour mix is better than Dulux and cheaper. (Several brands are,check with your friends whats available)
Leylands SDM stock and mix dulux, if you have one locally (good prices).
Leyland trade 'premix' Magnolia/white is 'useable' if you dont need much.Buy the gallon.The rest of the premixed colours dont bother.
Hope that helps.

I wont be as cruel as to laugh.
Generally you dont paint doors with emulsion paint.
To match up with old,(doors, skirtings etc) Take a chip from one of the old doors to the leylands or similar and ask advice, its probably gloss. You dont HAVE to paint it with gloss, you could use satinwood finish or something else.But you will need more than one type, (undercoat likely).
Investigate and learn, or for 4 doors you may just get a handyman in for some beer money.
(probably have bits and bobs of undercoat/satinwood/gloss/eggshell/whatever in white kicking about anyway).

2 litres / ..10' sq bedroom, same (old) colour no doubt.
The finished job will look the same, but it will take longer,unless you lack skill with the tools.
Have to call this one out as just a bit b/s. But its in the right direction.

You must have been drinking when you wrote this as I don't exactly know what you are calling out? Thanks for the info on the other paints as I said I've always used Dulux trade as I know it's always good stuff!

Other brands i.e Leyland I'm sure have similar compounds just don't know enough to warrant spending money on them.

Was going to add I used a white wash first on one of the rooms however my main point is the cheaper paint and the price difference makes it a better option to use the trade paint.

The majority of people who will be reading this won't have the skills of a professional and also want to get the job done quicker to relax over the bank holiday weekend.

I was calling out your optimistic coverage figures:
I very recently painted over (walls only,obviously) an 11'x8' room, and 10' x 6' room with like for like Dulux trade matt Magnolia (on top of the same 8 year old paint in my home, so a 'best case scenario')
; container 10L. There is less than 2 L left as I would expect so no, you wont get 2 'good size' rooms out of 4 litres.
Not even with a white pre coat (which is more litres paid for anyway and effort spent,generally again with watery paint,from a different £ container,and a colour change with roller etc so a waste of time,effort and money).
I am sure you didnt mean actual 'white wash' from decades ago, you cant paint over that anyway,reasonably.
You may have painted a few rooms over the last 2 decades but you dont have the experience to talk about 20 years decorating knowledge,frankly.
E.G.: The best roller for the *masses; the 9" kit with replaceable £1.75 roller head from Leylands/whom You Throw in the Bin when you are finished? (wrap in clingfilm/plastic bag between sessions)
Min wage is £7.50 / hr. You want to spend 25 minutes cleaning and forking about with a £3 roller head that may or may not survive for several years? Considering the average D.I.Y.er's experience with paint?
Dead time,money and space.
You are on the right track tho, give you credit where its due.
* (a 7" kit works faster for ladies and novices,esp if you have an old 9 " tray).

Like I said I was only giving help which has saved me a lot of time, money and effort in the past.

Sorry that I have somehow offended your proffession that was not in anyway intended.

You have a very condescending attitude and don't make much sense in what you are saying. Maybe a professional decorator would understand but all I read is a load of rambling boring text that any novice would clearly not understand and give up reading within the first sentence. LOL

Thankyou for your advice,
I have recently bought the doors and fit them meself . When I checked HUKD , I thought the deal is for all types of paints and that was the reason which I have asked for an advice . Anyway I bought a tin of nondrip satinwood and paint all of them.

Why would I mislead people? you are the one who's slavering a load rubbish about throw away rollers. Like I said 2 good sized rooms and I have approx 1.5 litres spare.

As for the white wash I meant I gave the walls a coat of watered down white. I personally feel that it gives a more solid look and hides more of the imperfections.

The walls were yellow after I ripped the wallpaper off and I painted them blue so not a really similar colour are they?

Don't know how you can call yourself a professional decorator if you can't use paint sparingly. Wouldn't want you anywhere near my house especially when in an earlier post you said you worked in a bar, just thought I'd "call you out" on that one.
