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 151.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Happy as Larry. I bought the Railings Exterior Eggshell for the window frames of my house, but changed my mind. Instead I painted the frames in Downpipe Exterior Eggshell and my front door in the Railings eggshell. So glad I did, it looks stunning.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great deep color I bought Railings after seeing it in several inspiration pages-I’m so glad I did! I painted my lower kitchen cabinets in Railings and I love the deep, midnight color. It is the perfect blue. Not navy, not black.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great look I am no paint expert. Most paints look the same to me but the wife chose this for our banisters in the stairway and it really looks fantastic. A real solid, thick look to it.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Wow The impact of this colour is utterly amazing. Always wanted to do a ‘dark room’ and very pleased I did. Will do another bedroom in Downpipe, as that’s another beautiful dark colour that makes white and silver stand out.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The perfect finish as ever from my favourite hue I topped up my supply of no 31 Railings and transformed my late father’s desk with a modern update

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!
