With all the different types of paints available, it’s easy to be overwhelmed, so talk to the mighty helpful paint team at your local Mitre 10 store and they can help you choose the right paint for your job.
When painting interior walls, you need a paint that is washable and stain resistant. Accent Interior Low Sheen offers a smooth luxurious finish, low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content, low odour, and has mould inhibitors to provide mould resistance.
If it’s your bathroom or kitchen that needs a little sprucing up, it is essential to use a paint that has been specially developed to perform in wet areas. Accent Kitchen and Bathroom features mould resistance and anti-bacterial additives and has excellent durability in areas prone to moisture. It can be used on walls and ceilings and has a 5-year guarantee against mould.
Ceilings can often be overlooked, but a fresh coat of crisp flat white is a must-do to really make the room pop. Accent Ceiling Flat has a white, ultra-flat finish which helps hide minor surface imperfections. It features a low VOC (Volatile Organic Compounds) content and low odour so it is very family-friendly.
When painting bare surfaces like timber window frames, trims or new plasterboard, use Accent Multi Prep Acrylic before applying any top coat wall paint. It might tempting to go straight to a top coat to save a bit of time and effort, but this multi-purpose primer, sealer and undercoat provides maximum adhesion for your top coat, ensuring you get a great and durable finish.
To highlight doors, skirts and trim, use a trim paint with a semi-gloss finish. The higher sheen level will help make the trims pop from the low sheen wall paint. Accent Semi-Gloss Enamel is a water-based trim paint that gives a tough, hardwearing finish which is ideal for doors, skirts and trims. The fast-drying and low odour formula means it can be recoated in 2 hours and is easy to work with.
If you are heading outdoors, Accent SolarMAX is a self-priming (on most surfaces), UV resistant and mould resistant exterior paint which provides maximum protection against the sun. It comes in a range of bases and sheen levels to suit your painting project and is backed by a 20 year guarantee against peeling, blistering and flaking.
