Bunnings have Farrow and Ball 2.5l tins of estate Emulsion available in a wide selection of colours for £35. Plenty of stock in our local store. Estate Emulsion only and no offers on the 5l tins. While this isn't cheap for paint, it's an excellent price for F&B which is seldom reduced from its rrp of £45 for 2.5l

Doesn’t seem that highly regarded h …Doesn’t seem that highly regarded https://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/2017/09/10/exclusive-farrow-ball-improves-paint-formula-criticism-interior/


Similar problems with Crown paints to since the change from oil based paints.
None of the decorators I know on site regard F&B very highly at all. They prefer to get similar colours mixed by someone like Johnsons at a fraction of the price for better quality paint.

Edit: Ok, I have now read the Telegraph link and it seems the guys I know aren't the only ones then.

Farrow and Ball do very nice colours that aren’t available from the likes of dulux etc, so get a colour swatch, cut it out, go into Homebase where they scan the colour you want and mix it there and then for you (even the durable one), and you’ve got the paint for less than half the price!
£35?!?!? Wow, f&b really have seen a lot of people coming haven't they!
Farrow and ball do make it hard for colour matches, they used to put a clear varnish type finish over their very fancy colour charts (thats what your paying for) so that dulux johnstones etc couldnt scan it with colour match machine,

l found johnstones trade best matches, l think they have list of codes. It will be lot cheaper and better than dulux at homebase etce. F and b often requires 3 coats, whereas trade paints often cover in 2, f and b struggles to touch up and requires the whole wall repainted!

If the tables were turned and a cheap own brand value paint behaved the way F and B did, people would say serves you right for using cheap paint!

£70 for 5L cheap emulsion, At least Dick Turpin wore a mask

Glad your happy with the match, its not always as great, l did a painting job got a sample in johnstones, coated 1m square of it and the f and b , lady couldnt tell what was what, probably one of the best colour matches ld seen, she said ahh we just go for the f and b, 4 x 5l tin tins and an extra 3 coat later b £500 extra l told her she said ah well least l have farrow and ball and paid extra £500 You couldnt make it up. Thats the power of advertising and branding.
Interesting reading about FB, I was considering this brand to use on my Kitchen doors. My be I would be better using an egg shell Dulux oil based paint ?
