Decorators Review Farrow and Ball Modern and Estate Emulsion
Farrow and Ball is a premium brand paint which is loved by designers, but receives a lot of mixed reviews from people who have to use it. Is it really worth the hype? Or is it overpriced and poor quality? We asked professionals on the Decorators Forum to give us their mini Farrow and Ball Emulsion review.
It is probably worth mentioning that Farrow and Ball is generally the same price wherever you look. The only place we have found it to ne slightly cheaper is The Paintshed when you use discount code FORUM5 at the checkout.
Nice emulsion, great flat finish, but be prepared for three coats. I prefer the estate, but it’s not the most durable if you have kids or dogs.
Farrow and Ball Emulsion review
If you follow the system recommend by Farrow and Ball the finish is quite good. You’ll want 3 coats minimum to get a good finish.
I finished using farrow and ball yesterday. Painted a big ceiling with a lot of light at one end in a cream colour in modern emulsion. It was a dream to roll. After two coats it looked great and didn’t flash too much.
Nice to use but needs three coats. Doesn’t touch up either
That’s India yellow… covered in two after using primer over a deep red
No no no and no! Too much hassle too many coats. Total nightmare! Unless it’s your place and you’ve got a million years to paint it! That’s my Farrow and Ball Emulsion review
