I need to paint a large 2 bed, 2 bath flat that I rent out. If I am spending £xk on doing this I am wondering if painting it Dulux (or similar) trade matt is a false economy. Should I look to paint it with a wipeable / hardwearing paint. Some wipeable ones seem to be £££ but maybe these would wear better.

Any advise on what brands / paints to use. Will be sticking to white or similar.

I’d say wipeable if you’re using colour. If you’re going pure brilliant white, then doesn’t matter. You’ll be able to touch up where needed without repairing the whole space.

Leyland trade matt paint contract. Brilliant white or magnolia is best

Stick with white not magnolia. More fashionable/flexible.

I wouldn’t bother with wipe clean paint in a rental, as someone has to wipe it clean, every cm or it shows. Much easier to paint.
