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 139.

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.

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 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.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Amazing colour The most stunning colour, looks so different as the light changes throughout the day, don’t think of it as too dark it’s a warm comforting colour. Adds an air of calm to a room as well

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great coverage for little coats It was more than what I typically spend on paint however I'm so glad I did. I bought railings to paint the bottom half of my kitchen cabinets and a B&Q paint for the top half. I ended up spending more money on the other paint because I required more coverage. I've got two coats of f&b paint on my cabinets that has covered perfect and still have half of the 2.5ltr tin left. And it's not a little kitchen by all means!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from F&B Railings Perfect Finish I bought this paint last month and painted a feature wall, I’m always amazed by the quality and the fact it covered a white wall in one coat, The finish is flawless and looks perfect! Highly recommended

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Railings I bought this a couple of months ago, I had researched online the best paint. I absolutely painting, and hate if it's more than a couple of coats. The paint was for my floorboards in a through room, I also bought the undercoat, and wall paint in the same colour too. The coverage was outstanding and the finish beautiful, and the best bit only used a fraction of paint I thought I would as it went over white, loving the dark. And I'm now using this for all the rooms as 2 coats and done is my kind of decorating.
