Paint choice for caravan interior

Recommended Posts

Static caravan now on site so going to set to and paint over the internal wallpaper. Probably have to get the paint from Screwfix as can pick up in the evenings, so Leyland or Dulux the main contenders. Is is it worth going for Dulux which is slightly more expensive, and the 'trade' variant? Colour to be white btw.

Thanks

Dulux trade will go over most things in one coat, with white I would use anything else.

but do you really want a brilliant white box to live in?

and does the finish on a caravan really matter?

Apparently we do.

Probably not, and arguably shouldn't be distracting from the more important job of building the house... But if there's a few simple things we can do to make it more pleasant and keep everyone happy. And maybe help its re-sale value.

 

Though in saying that, having second thoughts as a friend raised concerns about locking in moisture. Should we try and get a breathable paint, or leave well along, or are we worrying about nothing?

I would leave it alone and grow to hate it … more incentive to get the house built

IMHO I would use a low or zero VOC paint
