QuestionTop 5 Best Paint Brands for internal walls
I've been told that duluxe and crown are the top23 brands for internal decorating.
However I am keen to determine if there are other paints brands which are just as good or even better than these two.
I've heard Wickes brand is pretty good
Guidance is appreciated
Dulux or Crown paints (trade) are the best the rest are a rip off. wickes gloss in white will yellow after a short time. Leyland paints supply wicks.

Recently I had to do a decoration job with the left over paints provided but the customer its not normally something that I agree to but being on a really tight budget and also being to rigid is no good. so I agreed 3 coats later I could still see through it, the customer once shown under good lighting could also see through, so I promised that if she brought just one pot of dulux this would sort these endless coats. In just one on top of the other numerous coats, and yep lovely wonderful dulux sorted it all out, and I ask all my customers only dulux please, some decorators refuse to use anything else, good old dulux!

I would recommend any trade paint, not paint out your diy stores so pop along to any dulux or crown trade centres , maybe cost a bit more but coverage is better , if its just white or magnolia gliddens is cheaper in the dulux store and is good coverage
hope this helps

I've just recently re-decorated my hallway in the new Wickes range of paints and although i'm not a professional decorator,i know a good quality paint when i see it and i have to say it's superb quality for the price.......in my opinion it's as good as the leading brands that i've used in the past.
Wickes' paint come highly recommended.........(from a plasterer ;)

I would agree, I would go dulux all the way. If your willing to spend more go for farrow & ball.

stick to trade paints like the professionals use, we use Crown Trade and never have any problems. You wouldn't get a top athlete running in a pair of cheap trainers, you get what ya pay for!!
