Washable, scuff-resistant and protected against mould, it’s suitable for use in every room in the home, from busy hallways to moisture-prone kitchens and bathrooms, while offering our full range of colours in a beautiful matt finish.

What’s more, consumer champions Which? have given Modern Emulsion the top rating in their latest washable paint tests, awarding it coveted Best Buy status.

Tested against paints from a range of brands, Modern Emulsion impressed the independent experts with its ease of cleaning and highly durable finish.

"This paint from Farrow and Ball proved to be the most washable and durable in our tests,” said Which? “Easily the winner, the Farrow and Ball paint didn’t flake, peel off or fade after repeated washes.”

It’s the details in the formulation that deliver our high-performance finish. Our team of experts have crafted Modern Emulsion with a series of benefits that will stand up to life in busy homes.
