Why You Should use Dulux Trade Diamond Matt for Your Next Bathroom Job

why you should use diamond for your next bathroom job

Just like kitchens, bathrooms demand a hard working product to keep them looking good and keep them protected from steam and humidity. While higher sheens such as vinyl silk and soft sheen formulations are often preferred in bathrooms, most washable finishes are suitable, even matt ones.

In fact, in poorly ventilated bathrooms and shower rooms, higher sheen finishes which contain more vinyl can actually be less suitable as they effectively seal in the moisture rather than allow it to escape, meaning walls and ceilings are more prone to damp and mould.

Dulux Trade Diamond Matt was made for problematic environments such as bathrooms, thanks to its unique stain repellent formulation which makes moisture actively bead on contact with the surface. It can withstand repeated washing - especially important for your clients with families, as bathrooms tend to be high-traffic areas. With our Diamond formulations any scuffs, grubby fingerprints or even flecks of toothpaste can be washed away without removing the coating or the colour.

And speaking of colour, our Diamond paints can be mixed in hundreds of shades, so style needn't be sacrificed for practicality and vice versa. Also matt finishes are more popular than ever before, so there's even more reason to consider switching from a more traditional vinyl finish to Diamond Matt.

Now the walls are sorted, give your clients' bathrooms a durable finishing touch with Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell on trim and woodwork. It has all the qualities of Diamond formulations in terms of washability and resistance to scuffing and staining, but has a subtle sheen finish. It can also be used on interior walls and ceilings if your clients favour a sheen finish. So your clients' bathrooms can stay looking beautiful for even longer, no matter how much of a splash they want to make.
