I thought we had the kitchen/playroom wall and ceiling colour sorted. LG Loft White which we'll take through where we've knocked the wall down into the dining room, above the picture rail and ceiling too. But then a bit of Googling suggested that maybe I could save a few £££ by going with Dulux Trade White. Admittedly saving £££ would be good when we realise it's all too light and we want to repaint it orange (!), but will it give the same finish and be as tough as the intelligent matt? All opinions sought please, you people really know your stuff smile

I really wouldn't pay Little Greene prices for white paint going mainly on a ceiling.

We have a really good local independent paint shop and always use Johnsons trade paint which is fab and cheaper but they will mix it to any colour. So we end up with Farrow and Ball colours but a good quality paint! F&B paint does not mix well with children! Maybe this is an option!

Thanks Ilovewillow. We might look at doing that as LG is going to be very expensive for a whole house refurb. Haven't used Johnsons before, so will look into that.
