    Dulux diamond paint for kitchen?

    Painters & Decorators

    Hi, I have Dulux Diamond Matt paint (originally for the lounge) but I was wondering if this is ok to paint in the kitchen as well? Or should I buy paint specific for kitchens?

    "In the kitchen I would use an eggshell as it’s better for kitchens. But you can use diamond matt if that’s what you have"

    "Hi, Dulux Diamond Matt is not good for the kitchen. The Best paint for the kitchen is Dulux Easy Care Matt as it is exceptionally tough, great moisture and steam resistant paint. Its grease proof formulation resist everyday cooking stains and is washable without the colour fading away.
    Hence the paint makes even the busiest kitchen look great for longer."

    "I personally would use an oil acrylic or an eggshell for a kitchen. If you use Matt any grease marks will not wipe away"

    "Preferably you want something with a sheen in. It’s wipeable and if you use Matt in a kitchen then any stains will keep coming through"
