    Default What's the best non yellowing paint

    As in the title what is the best paint for woodwork that is non yellowing. I've tried both crown and dulux gloss but both yellowed badly within a few weeks. I will add nobody smokes in the house.

    I always use Johnstones gloss paint, seems to last the longest for me.

    It has very very strong smell though so make sure its well ventilated whilst painting.

    Try using an Acrylic undercoat it stops the oil in the gloss yellowing as quickly.Central heating also makes paint yellow in non smokers houses

    Always buy Dulux or Crown. You will never see any other brand on commercial builds or fit outs for a reason.

    We have dulux and crown gloss in our home. The crown has begun yellowing after 3 years but dulux is still nice and white. Also the sun will affect gloss whites as they are oil based. Same for egshells and acrylics.

    Johnstones Eggshell white. Always sand the woodwork first.

    Always use trade paint as it is much better quality.
