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 4.5 out of 5 by 143.

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 Simply stunning! Having never used a darker colour I took a plunge and bought Railings for an upcycling project. The colour is stunning- blackish blue and many people complimented how great the colour is. I subsequently used the same colour on another upcycle and will be painting wardrobes in Railings too.As with with other F& B paint the colour is deep and easy to use - I did use with primer and the 2 coats of paint. My favourite dark colour at the moment!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Kitchen revamp Our decorator recommended this product and we are super impressed with the finish and durability thus far! As a temporary measure (before we do the extension) we have had the timber kitchen units painted in Railings and combined with new tiles it looks amazing!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Gorgeous paint We bought a couple of trial pots from B&Q for the colour of 'Railings'. Then ordered a 2.5L tin direct from F&B. Colour is gorgeous for our internal doors and the paint is brilliant to use, it covers so well and dries quickly. Very happy with the finished article.
