Looking for a durable, water-based paint for your wooden doors or kitchen cabinets? Check out our review of Dulux Trade Diamond Satinwood, a versatile paint that delivers excellent coverage and dries to a tough finish.
We recently reviewed Dulux Stay White, a water-based paint for woodwork and metal, and were impressed by its performance. After mentioning this to Vincent Hyland, a regional area manager at Dulux in Dublin, we were given a sample of Dulux Trade Diamond Satinwood to try out for ourselves.
Our verdict? Thumbs up!
Here are some of our thoughts on Dulux Trade Diamond Satinwood:
Coverage was excellent, requiring only 2 coats for a smooth finish.
Water-based formula allowed for quick drying times and easy cleanup.
To keep the paint wetter for a little longer, it helps to dampen the area with a wet rag before painting.
If stains or marks bleed through the paint, touching up with Bin primer can help.
A good quality brush is essential for the best results, such as the Wooster chinex brush with synthetic bristles.
Low odour formulation is great news for both the painter and the customer.
The paint is touch dry in about an hour, with the exact drying time depending on temperature.
Overall, we found Dulux Trade Diamond Satinwood to be a reliable and easy-to-work-with paint that delivers a tough finish perfect for wooden doors or kitchen cabinets. The paint can be tinted to any colour to match your desired look.
