    Dulux Trade Diamond Matt Vs Dulux Bathroom Paint

    Painters & Decorators

    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, my personal opinion would be Dulux bathroom paint. Just be sure that the walls are not damp before applying."

    "Hi Lou, In short, trade paints are better than the retail equivalents. So, generally, the Dulux Diamond Matt would probably be the better option. Retail versions typically have a cheaper/weaker pigment. Trade versions will cost more, but they will cost more. Given that this is a bathroom however, you are best to use a bathroom specific paint.
    From what I have found, Trade Diamond Matt seems to be fine for bathroom use also. It is always checking this for yourself to ensure any paints you use in a bathroom in future are meant to be used in bathrooms – to ensure that they will not be damaged by humidity or dampness over time."

    "You can get dulux bathroom paint. There probably isn’t that much difference in the finish but just go with the bathroom paint"

    "Out of the two I would choose Dulux bathroom/Kitchen, there are a few tips to adding a product to a different paint, but those are experience learnt secrets. Primer = any as its the bathroom paint that does the protection. I hope that helps.

    "Bathroom paint is probably better. It’s also designed to deal with the different temperature that a bathroom has ie steam, cold and hot water"
