Can anyone recommend a nice colour with good coverage? Ideally only 2 coats.

In my experience going from a light colour to a dark usually takes at least 3 coats no matter what type of paint it is ?! F&B have some lovely blues ! Best to see a good size samples in the room so you can see the effect with the amount of light in the room !

Hague Blue from F&B is lovely. I have a very similar inky blue in one room and it gets a lot of appreciation!

Craig and Rose smalt looks great and coverage is excellent.

Dulux Teal Tension covered well in two coats.
Found it a bit oppressive to live with tbh, although it's a lovely colour it will be going soon!

I used this on some sliding doors that were painted white. It only took 2 coats. It has been admired.

I had a nightmare finding a nice navy blue. Got some mixed up from the Valspar range in B&Q in the end. Very pleased with it and they have hundreds of colours.

Thanks everyone. Will investigate in the paint shop.

We have F+B drawing room blue. Not as dark as Hague Blue but pretty dark and gorgeous.
