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 126.

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 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. For further information about our products, including guidance on safe use and application, click here to view our advice pages.

Customer Reviews 
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen makeover I was directed to the farrow and ball website after listening to Chris Evans breakfast radio show... we have been in our house for 18 months and hated the kitchen but couldn’t afford to change the units ... so I was inspired to change them for something completely different - the inspiration page showing the kitchen painted in Railings with a marble worktop had me sold. After reading reviews and contacting the online chat on your website - I purchased the undercoat too and treated myself to a new brush. We have a large Kitchen, but it is quite dark and this dark with light above was recommended. . . I love it ! It’s not finished yet - but the paint is such good quality that it applied really well with a mini roller and gave stunning results !

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Grand designs I bought this paint and was pleasantly surprised at its application, it’s a very soft black if that makes sense. It makes an excellent contrast to lighter areas. Very pleased with my choices.

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.
