    Paint advice: Is 'Endurance' paint worth it?

    We are painting our hallway and we have a 2 year old with another on the way, so are wondering about the Endurance (Dulux) or Easyclean (Crown) paints. Are they that much better than the normal paints in terms of being able to clean off scuffs etc.?

    Any advice is always helpful!

    nah not reelly if you want a more durable finish u can put an extra coats on, BQ got 2 tins for £20 quid atm hope that helps, silk is easier to clean tho so maybe go for that enit

    Never heard of it, but sounds like a marketing mans wet dream.

    Thanks

    I use the same paint, although the name changed recently.

    IMO, it's worth every penny, you can literally scrub the walls if there's a mark on them, the paint is of excellent quality and applies very well.

    It is expensive, but it's worth it.

    yes, its good stuff. But so is water based eggshell from proper trade place.

    I know it's probably just a trade claim etc, but Dulux say Endurance is 10x more stain resistant that regular water based eggshell.

    just go for cheaper paint and have some spare to paint over marks. Easier than scrubbing lol

    true, must take all of 2 minutes to open a tin of paint, paint over and rinse a brush out LMAO

    we have just used endurance to repaint our hall and yes marks wipe off very easily and its matt so doesnt show up any uneven walls etc
    we used homebase own washable paint in the kids bedroom and tbh its just as good as endurance
    best place to buy would be homebase as their own paint and the dulux paints are on offer most of the time buy one get one half price
