What Mumsnet testers said about Valspar Premium Blend v700™ Walls & Ceilings Paint

Family playing with grandchildren at home

“I will definitely be using it again. I have already needed to wash sticky handprints off the walls and you wouldn't know it had been marked.” Glenthebattleostrich

“I would highly recommend this paint and would definitely use it again. It's nice knowing I can scrub the walls without taking the paint off using Matt paint. That's a big bonus, I usually need silk because of the kids and dogs so this has given me many more options now and I'm now wondering where else to decorate.” allnonotmenotI

“We are very inexperienced painters - we usually get a decorator in to do it for us - but it went on well with the roller and we are happy with the result.” CatkinToadflax

“Loved the wide range of colours plus colour matching service, and quick and easy to apply.” IWouldBeSuperb

“I’ve been and bought more to do my lounge. I’d also like to refresh the kitchen. Perfect paint and won’t hesitate to use the brand again.” Unsurechicken
