“Crown paints are rubbish”

Written on: 17/07/2014 by MakenzieFlanagan (1 review written)

I have now used two tins of Crown silk emulsion on a small kitchen and after three coats the results are still very patchy. This despite the new colour being a very similar colour to the last paint job. Very frustrating!… Read Full Review

“Waste of Time”

Written on: 06/07/2014

We used Crown Fashion for Walls Matt Euphoria on our hall stairs and landing- dreadful results ! Used 3 tins of paint in total just on one side of stairs and hall ( used a toning colour on the opposite side) to try and get an even finish. It isn't it's appalling! Rang Crown who told us to dilute it - still patchy, uneven and if you dare rub against it it marks. Waste of time money and effort! All has to be re-done. Will use DULUX in future. Will never buy Crown again. Very disappointing… Read Full Review

“Crown solo... Rubbish !!”

Written on: 07/12/2013 by Cinderfordboy (1 review written)

Crown wheatgrass solo... Used in the hall on top of magnolia... So far on our 4th coat !!! Bought 3 tins just in case, used all 3 and to add insult to injury the 3rd tin went on a completely different shade to the first two... Now having to re do even the bits that didn't, need re doing in the first place as we are not really going for the zebra stripe effect by choice. Dulux in future all the way. Agree with all the other previous comments… Read Full Review

“crown should abdicate”

Written on: 06/10/2013 by hayesdecorating (1 review written)

i am a self employed painter and decorator and in the course of my work use allsorts of wierd an wonderful paints , generally most of the home brands that the stores sell are not great but will do the job if the existing paintwork is in good fettle, by far the best paint ( an it grieves me to say it ) is Dulux and if you are going to decorate i would recommend saving up for it if your on a budget, the finish is always good and it lasts , the best of the stores own brands are homebase with a… Read Full Review

“Avoid Crown emulsion - utter garbage !”

Written on: 23/08/2013 by Dadiodude (1 review written)

We've always used Dulux but this time around we picked Crown for some bedrooms. Never again! how this company can produce such a shockingly bad product and charge premium prices astounds me. Coverage and opacity are dreadful and its going to cost twice as much time and money to do very minor colour changes compared to our normal brand. I feel completely ripped off by this manufacturer. As a side note - it also smells vaguely of urine… Read Full Review

“Do not buy!”

Written on: 09/04/2013 by RobertsR (1 review written)

We bought crown wheatgrass to change, ever so slightly, the shade of our living room. It took two coats as the paint was very runny. We also used crown eggshell brilliant white on the wood work. This still looks unfinished and patchy even after 3 coats. We will never use Crown again. Just to top it all off, we were touching up a couple of the walls to sell the house, bought a sample pot, and it's dried a completely different shade. You have been warned!… Read Full Review

“Absolute rubbish!”

Written on: 14/03/2013

Well, I wish I'd read these reviews before I started painting my bedroom! I have a wall of built in cupboards and a wallpapered feature wall so thought that painting the remaining two walls and ceiling would only be a small job. Wrong! I chose Crown paint as I've used it in the past with no problems, but how things have changed. I did the coving and cutting in with a brush, ever time I tried to apply more paint it dragged off the previous bit. The paint's consistency was closer to milk! And… Read Full Review

“matt emulsion disaster”

Written on: 09/04/2012

I decided to redecorate both my lounge and dining area recently. I chose wheatgrass solo for my living room which was wallpapered in one of those textured lining papers designed for paint to be used on top. I had previously used homebase paint on this and had been very happy with the results. After 2 coats it was extremely patchy and no amount of repainting solved the problem. I contacted crown who tried to make it out it was the wallpaper even though I told them of previously happy… Read Full Review

“I bought a 2.5 ltr tin of Crown Indulgence paint-City...”

Written on: 27/04/2010

I bought a 2.5 ltr tin of Crown Indulgence paint-City Life paint. It's matt emulsion. The colour itself is beautiful-lovely navy blue. I painted a medium sized room with 2 coats- from the first tin but the paint was very hard to apply-even after stirring and brush marks still showed! Now I was using a good brush and I've painted other rooms which have turned out perfect (with Dulux might I add) but I had to buy another tin of paint and after 4 coats brush marks are still showing! 50 quid spent… Read Full Review

“MY Yellowing ceiling still looked awful after 2 coats...”

Written on: 21/09/2008 by peto01 (4 reviews written)

MY Yellowing ceiling still looked awful after 2 coats of B&Q Value, so I tried Crown Matt Emulsion( £10 for 10l special offer at B&Q). 2 coats later and it still looked poor, I think it was worse than the Value stuff. Finaly finished job with B&Q Trade..its good.
I don't think Crown deserves the kudos it has… Read Full Review

“I used Crown Matt Emulsion only last week to neaten up...”

Written on: 23/04/2008 by DIY999 (7 reviews written)

I used Crown Matt Emulsion only last week to neaten up the spare room. I prepared the walls well, used my sander extensively and smoothed much inequalities. I was hoping it might cover in one go as a result of this and because I though Crown Emulsion would do the trick. Unfortunately it was back to B&Q for me the day after. Nevermind, the result is good enough and the Matt is truly matt… Read Full Review
