    Hello, I am planning on repainting some bathroom walls, but I’m unsure which paint is the best choice. Dulux Trade Diamond Matt or Dulux Bathroom Paint or something entirely different? Any advice on this or even for the choice of primers or sealants would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Lou

    Hi All, I hope this isn’t too silly to ask, but can I paint my radiator using tile paint? It’s just to cover some rusty patches where the paint has flaked off. I don’t have any other paint available right now, but don’t know if there is any special paint I should be using and I’m cautious it might affect the radiator working. Many thanks, K

    Hi All, I have a bathroom undergoing renovation at the moment, including some recently plastered walls. Is there any paints I should be using for a bathroom specifically? Anti-damp/water resistant perhaps? Would it be feasible to use normal emulsion at all? Also, if I do need to use bathroom-specific paint, could I do a first coat using an ordinary white thinned emulsion over the plaster?

    Hi Guys, I’m currently on a project of redecorating my home. Right now, I want to repaint the walls/ceiling of my kitchen & bathrooms. I would like recommendations for the type of paint I should be using. I have been told that there are special paints for both, like ‘Dulux Kitchen / Bathroom +’, while I’ve also been told that any normal matte emulsion is fine too. I had planned on using the Dulux Classics Timeless range as it is an interior paint, but I don’t know if it would be suitable for my bathroom or kitchen with the possibility of heat and moisture in the air. What do you all recommend best? Will the bathroom need different paint for moisture?
