Rated 3 out of 5 by chocoholic Great colour, poor coverage.
I love this colour, it is very light, not much off white but slightly warmer. It does make my lounge look lighter and brighter. Because of this, I would use Light and Space again. I am aiming to use Desert Wind in my dining room. However, as I sit down for a cup of coffee, I am reporting that I find the coverage fairly awful!!! Just finished the 3rd coat over Warm Peach, I really expected 2 coats to do it! As I am not a spring chicken, the extra time and effort is a bit much!! I tried to buy two cans in the special offer but was told Light & Space did not qualify, only ordinary matt and silk. However, I am still going to go with this paint for my next project as my house is so dark and dismal!! Not recommended for coverage (why didn't I choose Dulux Once?!) but great for lightening a gloomy room.

may as well paint the walls white as there is not even a hint of colour in this.

Rated 1 out of 5 by FLOSS NOT AS EXPECTED
Disappointed in the Dulux light and Space emulsion paint, i didn't like it.
It was too runny and didn't cover as well as other dulux paints I've used in the past.
Especially as i've always used Duilux products.

Have used litres of this paint over the past three years. I've compared it to conventional paint of a similar colour, and it does lighten and brighten the room. Coverage is good too.... plenty of pigment.
Slight downside... marks easily with the matt finish, but will wipe off without losing too much of the painted surface.
It changes colour slghtly according to light conditions in a room. Personally I like the my walls slightly different shades ... looks as though I've been artistic with colour tones !!!!
More expensive than most emulsions, but sometimes you can pick it up on a 3-for-2 deal.

Rated 5 out of 5 by painter excellent quality
Excellent quality paint. Nice colour not to white and clinical. Covers very well and only needs one coat of paint. Brightened up the room significantly compared to the magnolia coloured wall.

Good light reflection, great soft white colour, more than 2 coats needed and feels slightly rough.

Rated 4 out of 5 by Polgazon Great products, as expected from such a brand
As described on the tin! easy to apply, and does seem indeed to "create" a slightly bigger space.
In my mind, worth the extra money.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Lisle A bit different to your average paint
I tried this paint on recommendation of a friend that had used it in her home. She said that the paint picked up the colours of your carpet and reflected them back to give the room a subtle glow.
I was sceptical as it looks like plain white emulsion when I opened the tin but I was very surprised and pleased at the final result. There is a luminosity to the finish that gently reflects the colours of the carpet and soft furnishings that is a bit different than your average plain white walls.
I would absolutely pass on the recommendation to others looking for a clean bright effect.
