Paint Finishes


Matt emulsion and wipeable emulsion are for walls and ceilings and eggshell is for interior wood e.g. skirting boards, dado rails, doors, freestanding and fitted furniture, including kitchens. Simple.

So, the only decision you need to make really is whether you want a very flat matt finish or whether it is important to you to be able to wipe down your walls.

Our eco-friendly matt emulsion gives a lovely, chalky, matt finish on walls and ceilings.

Wipeable is exactly that: wipeable. With this eco-friendly emulsion the marks left by small hands or muddy wellies can be easily removed with a damp cloth. That’s why we recommend wipeable in heavy traffic areas of the home such as hallways, bathrooms and kitchens. It is similar in look to matt emulsion but has a very low, barely-there sheen.

Eggshell looks a bit like…eggshell and is naturally hard-wearing, with a very light sheen common to this kind of finish.

To see our different finishes for yourself, visit our showroom. Occasionally with some colours, there are very slight variations in colour between finishes within the accepted tolerances. In situ it is not noticeable but we’d rather mention it as we prefer our customers to be fully informed. All our sample pots come in matt emulsion and our colour charts are painted in wipeable.
