ECO-FRIENDLY AND CHILD-SAFE

Back in 2010, we moved our entire range to an eco-friendly water base that’s low odour, low VOC and child-safe, becoming the first in the industry to do so. Easy to clean without harmful solvents, in tins that can be recycled again and again, our paints help to reduce the environmental impact of redecorating your home.


QUALITY FINISHES

Every one of our paint colours is available in a range of durable interior and exterior paint finishes, each rigorously tested to ensure an exceptional depth of colour and long-lasting finish. For the very best results, we always recommend using a Farrow & Ball Primer & Undercoat – see above for the correct tone for this colour.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Modern emulsion I painted a bathroom with Pointing Modern emulsion. It looks so bright and fresh, it’s an excellent neutral colour for making the room light.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Brightening and warm coat Delivery was quick! Did my corridor with this paint and the result was amazing. My original wall was white and this one gives out more brightening and warm effect. Love it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent paint and service! We had our stairs clear varnished for the last 20+ years and wanted to change it to something different. My wife found a picture in a magazine and we thought we try it. While I was searching for floor paints, best reviews were for F&B. We thought we give a try. Wow!!! What a difference this paint/colours made. It was a pleasure to paint, considering I hate painting. I sanded down the clear varnish with an electric sander. Instead of stripping the spindles and bottom rails, I replaced them with new ones, as they are not too expensive. Used 2 coats of F&B Dark Tones Wood Floor Primer & Undercoat on everything. Used 3 coats of Mahogany (36) Modern Eggshell on the posts, handrails and steps. Used 3 coats of Pointing (2003) Modern Eggshell on the spindles, sides and risers.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Lovely paint The Farrow and Ball Pointing paint is lovely to use and it’s a beautiful soft white. Depending how bright the room is, it can look fresh and modern or a warm cream in a dark room. I’ve painted cupboards, a sideboard and chairs in my kitchen and window frames and sills in my daughter’s cottage.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from F a B paint I ordered paint direct from Fand B but when the paint arrived the paint from one tin had spilled over! I complained and was pleased when a replacement tin was quickly sent to me. Very pleased with response and how the room looks!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Good finish! I have been painting my kitchen cupboards and I have to say, the finish is great! I do highly recommend a very good undercoat (like Zinsser Bulls-Eye) as this is what makes a big difference. I was always cautious about it but no regrets now. As I say - take time to use a good undercoat - and extra fine brushes.
