Rated 4 out of 5 by Sneezy Good finish
I have used this paint many times because I can wash the brushes in water, and the paint gives a good finish. I am not a lover of high gloss paint and therefore prefer the finish to be very Matt. Will continue to use.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Mike First class high quality paint!
An excellent paint product that I would highly reccomend to all. Prepare the surfaces well, and apply two to three coats, and it will last for many years. Load the brush quite heavily and don't spread out to much.....it will find its own level, and dries quickly. Superb paint that comes in many colours.

Really thrilled with this light and space paint. Have now used three colours and love the result. Highly recommend, and shall use more myself. Great to apply as well.

This new light and space range is fantastic. Not only the white and coloured emulsions but the satinwood also.I have had my lounge, kitchen and hall painted with these and they definitely make all rooms brighter. I have recommended light and space to all my family and friends who are now as addicted to them as I am. However, my husband may not be of the same opinion as he will be glad to see the whole decorating projects finished with. He says they are the best paint products he has used and go on evenly and give good coverage. The Henley Wallpaper is fantastic. It is a bit pricey but you only get what you pay for. I have used it above the tiles in my gloss white kitchen. It has really added that bit of warmth and colour.

This paint does exactly what it says and more. My husband painted one of our hallway doors in ordinary brilliant white satin wood. He painted the other 4 doors in Light and Space and you certainly see the difference. Of course he has now repainted the first door and it certainly has brought light into my dull hallway. It stays bright and white too and is easily cleaned. I have also bought the light and space emulsions in Homebase and they too are excellent and certainly brighten up the rooms. Not just another gimmicky paint but one that really works.

Rated 4 out of 5 by paint fiend Takes a while to get used to it!
LOVED the way this paint is so easily cleaned off the brushes by washing in cold water. It's almost quicker than cleaning off emulsion.
Takes a while to get used to the way it covers the wood and you mustn't count on it hiding blemishes as well as ordinary gloss paint might. In fact, you definitely need several coats to build up full coverage. It'll do best when you start from a thoroughly smooth and blemish-free base. Also a point for consideration when going from a dark paint to this white one.
Absolute White is a good name as this is just about the whitest white paint I've ever come across!
Can't say I cared for its smell which seems to hang around much longer than ordinary gloss-style, even though it's not as vicious as the ?acetone? stink of ordinary gloss paint.
It has a pleasant, subtle, sheen and definitely brightens up a dull area. This was teamed up with one of the maximum light-reflecting emulsions and has improved a darkish hall area immensely. I likeeee!
Less happy about the price though, and I almost didn't buy it because it is so much more expensive than other wood paints. In fact, the cost might cause me to think again if I had a large project to do.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Martin White paint that stays white
I was so fed up with white paint that quickly yellows I tried this. It is super-white and the first bit I tried (internal doors) is still brilliant after two months. Have now done all skirting and doors with it and has transformed the house. Low smell and quick drying and tough enough.
Excellent product and worth the extra cost.
