B&Q Tate Colour is an excellent paint; low in emissions ie no nasty smells!
Thick, resilient, efficient - very good coverage.
Reminds me of New England Paint which had exactly

I agree with floss on this B&Q Tate Colour Emulsion. I was hoping to freshen up my kitchen by putting on another coat of the same colour (Skylon) but I'm hugely disappointed that B&Q have discontinued this range.

Brilliant paint, good coverage, need to get hold of more paint in the colour Fruit. It is a really bold deep purple. (read more)

B&Q Tate Colour Emulsion paint, which now seems to have been discontinued by B&Q, was the best paint I ever used, and I have used a lot. It covered well, was easy to use - not too thin or too thick, had minimal smell which didn't last long, the colour choice was great, and I would buy more of it if I knew where to get it. I did my kitchen in a colour called Ebb, which is fantastic, and I am really disappointed that B&Q no longer stock the range. (read more)
