Railings

No.31

A soft black with blue undertones

More blue than black, Railings is a softer alternative to black which is particularly suited to the ironwork it takes its name from. When used in Full Gloss on front doors it creates a handsome and commanding entrance, but becomes much more relaxed in feel in our Estate Eggshell finish. The bluer undertones of this dark hue transform rooms into dramatic and enveloping interior spaces. 

Recommended Primer & Undercoat: Dark Tones

Complementary white: Ammonite

Railings is rated 4.4 out of 5 by 118.

Product Information 
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 132 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.


SAFETY INFORMATION

All Farrow & Ball finishes except Limewash contain isothiazolinones, which may produce an allergic reaction. Farrow & Ball Limewash contains calcium hydroxide which can cause severe damage in contact with skin or eyes.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful It is so easy to use and the finish is great. I will definitely be using your paint in future.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from GORGEOUS shade, so much depth Tried to skimp and find a less costly brand but so glad we invested - it's night and day with other paints. There was some hesitation about going to a black wall but "Railings" is beyond beautiful and made this light-filled room a talking point, not drab and dull. Take the plunge.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Well chuffed Had previously used this on my own property and a nearby neighbour asked whether I would do theirs aswell as it looked very smart. I obliged and have just finished it .The customer's husband told me it had transformed their property and his wife was delighted with the result

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Stair project using Railings Great colour, the paint was fantastic to use, covered lovely on top of the appropriate under coat and no odour which is a very big bonus

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Goth house I decided to paint my very narrow terraced house with Railings. The guy doing the painting said it was great to work with and my neighbour asked me if Batman was moving in which I am taking as a resounding win.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Excellent colour for cupboards I painted utility room cupboards and free standing cabinet in Railings. Unified the look with antique brass handles. The walls and woodwork painted in Wimborne white. Used the money I saved on new cupboards to buy gorgeous Miele appliances. My Utility looks superb. Would definitely recommend this colour scheme for a clean look

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful finish I bought this paint a couple of weeks ago on the recommendation of my daughter. So glad we took her advice, more expensive than the usual paint we would buy, but the finish on the Estate Eggshell is just beautiful. We used it to update a drab fitted wardrobe which has been brought up to date with this paint. I'm so pleased with the result, we've now decided paint all the upstairs doors and door frames in Manor House Grey. Worth it..
