Cheaper paints won’t cost you as much as branded paints, but may end up costing you more in the long run.
The paint will fade a lot quicker in time and may also fade away after cleaning. You will not get as good a finish and more coats may need to be applied. In future, the lines could be stopped, so you won’t be able to stock up if you need to re-touch up.
Brands such as Dulux, Johnstones and other branded paints are much thicker and you get a better coverage, the walls are also more durable and wipe able. As with a lot of paints, there is a wide range of colours.
Farrow & Ball does has a very good range of colours with a top quality finsh. A lot of people will go for Farrow & Ball because of the excellent finish and their unique colours. Although it does come at a cost as it doesn’t cover as well or is as durable.
So Dulux or Farrow & Ball? What’s the difference? It depends on whether you want to go for a long-lasting and durable paint (Dulux) or a high quality finish (Farrow & Ball). Both of which are two high quality paints that I highly recommend to my customers.
Dulux has a choice of six different Emulsions including; eggshell, soft sheen, vinyl matt, matt, flat matt, and super matt while Farrow & Ball has a selection of just two, modern and estate.
The choices are yours.
