Good deal..

I’ve used this paint a few times at home and away and it’s pretty good. Best to thin it with 50% water on new plaster. Its fairly hard wearing too, a good buy for the money, since it’s a lot cheaper than Dulux ’washable type’ paint.

Sometimes the same paint is on offer at B and Q in their 3 for 2 deal and comes it at or very near to this price, also if you are lucky like I was tubs were 20% bigger too!
2 for £20 in b and q
Just as I plan on painting the kitchen/dining area!

Total rookie here: I presume this would be ideal for the walls, and ceilings?

Yes but I would chose a semi gloss or satin for a busy area like the kitchen

Will be a little harder wearing when cleaning

Thanks!

I just seen 20L for £25 and started rubbing my hands... Me thinks I should read up on satin/Matt etc. However what ever I do buy, will do for the ceilings also?

Thanks again!

Do not buy this for painting your kitchen unless it has been newly plastered - I didn't know this but every "contract " paint I've gotten is watery and rubbish and only good for soaking into new plaster

From what I've read about it in the past (pretty sure boyf has tried this but can't ask him atm), this Leyland Trade Paint is pretty thick and has excellent coverage.

I get what you mean, though, I remember buying a cheapo Contract Paint many years ago (think it was from FADS, it was so long ago) and it was absolutely woeful.

The reviews may help reassure anyone who's unsure.

Trade is good - contract is not I got myself super hyped up to use this, roller at the ready and it was just water great for someone who needs it for plaster, for actual colour not so much
In the last 6 months I’ve used this ‘Leykand Contract’ on newly plastered walls and ceilings and previously painted walls and ceilings. In my view it’s a good value paint and not too thin.

Toolstation sell lots of it and so if it was rubbish they would stop selling it. However their returns policy is great so if you buy it and are not happy they will refund you and you can get a free coffee / tea/ soup while you are there!

(I don’t work for Toolstation or have any affiliation to them before anyone asks!😄 )

I would definitely go with some better paint for your kitchen (and other busy areas) unless you plan to redecorate again in couple years. We have dulux washable and after 2 years it still looks like just painted.

I bought this to cover the new plaster in my garage conversion. Even after five coats the pink plaster was showing through. I had to buy Dulux Trade paint to get the job done. I'd only use this Leland paint as a base coat.

This is a Matt version and isn't hard wearing or easy to clean. Go for a vinyl Matt version which is much better for a kitchen. It's more expensive but will be alot better.

A friend of mine recommended putting a thin coat of watered down PVA glue first to stop the need for endless coats of paint. It adds a thin coat over the plaster. It did seem to work, plastered wall paint is now 3 years old with just 2 coats of paint & looks as good as the day it was first done.
Thanks for posting, heat from me OP
Buying cheap paint like this is pointless! You need more of it, it takes longer as you have to put more coats on and the finish is normally rubbish because people normally slap it on thicker because it’s not covering.
This paint has changed in the past 3 years. It used to be able to cover walls in 2 coats max, but now it's watered and not as good for coverage. Sometimes you need 3 coats and if the previous paint is of strong colour even 4 coats. As someone already pointed out Vinyl Matt is far better than this. With vinyl matt you can almost get away with painting 1 coat.

Never PVA a wall unless you are plastering it. Emulsion doesn't adhere to PVA and will peel off later.

Fair enough but it hasn't peeled anywhere. Guess I've been lucky.
For those calling this poor, thin paint, this is contract matt: it's not supposed to be used as your topcoat on walls, unless it's an extremely low traffic area (and even then you're better off buying something with higher opacity for the topcoat to save time). As the product says, it's for sealing new plaster with a mist coat, perhaps a first coat when making a stark colour change, and for ceilings.

You want a more durable finish like vinyl / silk etc. as topcoat on your walls.
If anyone is looking for a good base coat on new plaster then this is the stuff to buy. Brilliant coverage.

Just a couple of things, on new plaster 20% max with water as its already thin enough and without being cheeky there's no way u can compare it with any washable paint never mind dulux, they are 2 completely different thing when u compare contract matt to durable/washable matt

This paint in particular is only any use on ceilings as the slightest brush against it or a slight hand on the wall will mark it forever and be impossible to wash off, if u want to freshen up a buy to let etc then great but do not put it on the walls in your own property as u will end up painting it a month later due to dirty marks

In short ok for ceilings in rooms with 1 window (no good if theres windows at either end as flashes like mad), no good for walls, professional decorator here, ignore at your peril

This is totally not true, its excellent at covering new plaster, it almost covers in one coat and defo covers in 2, only thing is, its useless on walls as marks up to easily, good on ceiling though
There's so much bad advice on this thread its unbelievable and im sorry but i cant stop posting lol

For kitchens and bathrooms especially this paint is absolutely no use unless u fancy having to paint it a few weeks later, its got to be either a durable matt (not vinyl as thats no use in kitchens and bathrooms for longevity)), acrylic eggshell, satin or silk, I have listed the paints in order of sheen so the 1st one is lowest sheen and the last one is the highest sheen, it all depends on the condition of the walls (roughness) as to what paint u should use for the best finish

Anyone disagrees with any of my posts feel free to question me as I've done this for 30yrs and have learned the hard way, although always willing to be enlightened!!
Used this to paint some ceilings and needed a fair few coats to make it look good.
As my arm was hurting from rollering I bought some Dulux pure brilliant white. Went on much quicker. Sadly two years on and the Dulux is no longer brilliant white, it has a yellow/cream look.
So will pickup some of this Layland paint and paint over the Dulux.
