Help! I know you guys love this colour. What formulation do you like best?
Diamond- the most £££ but gets great reviews
Endurance- mid priced and gets mixed reviews- is it really wipeable?
Regular matt emulsion- really varied reviews.
Get another paint and if so what?
It's for the hall stairs and landing.

I've got the Kitchen + version in my kitchen and porch, which I'm sure I read at the time was the same as the diamond formulation. It's certainly very tough and properly scrubbable. Very matt whereas I think Endurance has a sheen.

Thank you

We've got diamond everywhere. It's absolutely fine, and definitely scrubbable. It's really easy to paint with and you get good coverage. The diamond matt is properly matt too.

Have you tried other formulas of Dulux paint? Do you reckon the extra is worth it then?

I think it is. I'd forgotten how good it was and was about to re-paint a wall, scrubbed it ready to paint and it came up like new so I didn't have to re-paint! Standard matt paint would have come off and anything shiny or with a 'sheen' just looks horrible, even if it is easier to clean.

I thought Diamond was the trade version of Endurance? Anyway, I've always used Diamond and it's been great .

I've got the standard version in our bedroom and it looks great - not s high traffic area though obv.

I've got timeless endurance throughout my house and timeless kitchen. I'm not sure about wipe ability though. I've tried wiping marks off with no success!

Ive got the standard in my living room and whilst I can easily wipe off the odd grubby mark I'm not sure it would stand up that well to anything that needed to be scrubbed off. Looks lovely though.

YouCannotPossiblyBeHungry- no diamond and endurance are different formulas. The diamond has more pigment but is meant to be harder to work with.

The diamond Matt is really easy to work with. If I can use it, anyone can!

It is totally scrubbable. Washing the walls in the hallway (which attract a lot of mucky little handprints) made it come up like new.

We're about to move and we'll use diamond matt again in the new house when we paint. Tbh, it's actually quicker to go to a dulux decorator centre than it is to trail around B&Q. They gave us a discount card in there to get a bit of money off too.
