Sorry I've searched but I'm finding contradictory info
Can anyone recommend a white paint for woodwork (picture rail, skirting) that won't fade to cream/yellow? I applied Wilko satinwood that had good reviews about 3 months ago and it's faded to cream already
Is eggshell the way forward? I admit I've never used it I keep seeing gorgeous crisp white doors/skirting in photos and wondering how to achieve it! I'm about to paint the walls Dulux 'sea urchin 2'. The ceiling and above picture rail are already white. I want some crisp woodwork against the teal!
Budget recommendations preferred but not too fussed as long as it stays white!
The formulation of interior gloss paints had to be changed a few years ago which means it tends to go yellow quicker. Some are better than others now. I have found Dulux to be terrible for going yellow quickly. I have been using Crown solo satinwood and seems to be standing up to the test of time. It is also a dream to use.
Thanks PigletJohn! No smokers, no open fire and no candles since painted (very occasional tealights lit in winter - I will heed your advice). Room is NW facing but gets flooded with light in the afternoon.
I'll have a look at the Crown range! Every brand I looked at seemed to have mixed reviews online
I would never use gloss inside and I have not done for decades! Use an interior eggshell for wood. F and B do one and our white woodwork has not gone yellow and is hard wearing. We use the exterior eggshell for outside wood too. It is a much better (modern) product than gloss and much easier to use too.
