2. What are the different types of paint finishes available at Dulux?

  • High Gloss: Known for its shiny, reflective surface, high gloss paint is the most durable and easiest to clean. For those special touches around your home like doors, window frames, and furniture, Dulux Stellar High Gloss is a fantastic choice. It's crafted specifically for metal and wood, ensuring these surfaces get a glossy and durable finish. (Dulux Stellar also comes in satin and semi-gloss finishes.)
  • Matt Finish: For those who love a smooth, elegant look without any shine, matt finish is the go-to. It's great at hiding imperfections on walls and ceilings, offering a sophisticated touch. Dulux Pentalite and Dulux Wash & Wear (Matt) are standout choices here, providing not just the desired matt look but also benefits like hygiene+ technology and stain resistance, keeping your walls looking effortlessly clean.
  • Sheen Finish: Sheen finish is a happy medium between matt and gloss, offering a slight shine that brings a warm and inviting feel to rooms. Under this finish, we have Dulux Better Living Air Clean Biobased, Dulux Wash & Wear (Sheen), and Dulux Ambiance All. (Dulux Wash & Wear and Dulux Ambiance All have a slightly lower sheen, making them perfect for areas where you want durability without too much shine, such as living rooms and bedrooms.)
  • Satin Finish: If you're after a finish that's not too shiny but not too dull, satin is your ideal match. It offers a medium level of sheen that's particularly good for wood and metal surfaces, making it a solid choice for doors, window frames, and skirting boards. Dulux Satinwood is perfect for these tasks, giving a durable and protective satin finish that enhances the beauty of your home's details.


3. How long does it take to complete the interior paint job?

The time it takes to complete an interior paint job can vary depending on several factors like the size of the space, the number of coats needed, and the complexity of the project. On average, a small to medium-sized room can take a few days, while larger projects might need a week or more. The key steps include preparation, priming (if necessary), painting, and drying time between coats.

Preparation is important and can impact the overall timeline. This involves moving furniture, taping edges, and covering floors to protect against spills. Using Dulux interior paint, which is designed for smooth application and excellent coverage, can help streamline the painting process.

For those unsure about choosing the right colours, Dulux offers the Dulux Preview Service. This convenient service helps you visualize your space in your chosen colours before committing, ensuring you get the look just right in 3 easy steps: Snap, Preview, and Paint.

If you're looking for professional assistance, Dulux can help you find a reliable painter through the Find a Painter service. Select painters near you, get a free quote, and ensure your interior paint job is completed efficiently and to a high standard.

Remember, the drying time between coats is essential for a durable finish, so it's important not to rush the process.


4. How often should interior walls be painted?

Generally, it's a good idea to give your walls a fresh coat of paint every 5 to 7 years. However, high-traffic areas like hallways and kids' rooms might need a touch-up more often, maybe every 2 to 3 years, due to marks and scuffs.

Living rooms and adult bedrooms, which usually see less wear and tear, can go longer without needing a new paint job. But, if you notice the paint is starting to look dull or dirty, or if you're just ready for a change, it might be time to repaint.

Dulux offers a wide range of interior wall paints designed to suit every need, from washable paints that make cleaning up spills a breeze to durable options perfect for busy family homes. Plus, with Dulux's Preview Service, you can easily find the perfect shade to refresh your space, whether you're looking for a bold new look or a subtle change.
