What is Crown Trade Eggshell Paint?

Crown Trade Eggshell paint is a small but mighty range of different eggshell paints for use indoors. They can be used in pretty much every room of the home, and you’ll find they provide a good degree of coverage per litre. For example, the ever-popular basic White Crown Trade Eggshell can give up to 16m2/litre. 

It is touch dry in 4-6 hours, giving you enough time to do a few walls and get a room done in a day. 

Why use Crown Trade Eggshell Paint?

Eggshell paints are often seen as a delicate paint to deal with, but when you have a reputable paint like this Crown Trade range, you’re afforded a little more leeway thanks to it being durable.

This particular range of eggshell paint can give you a high level of durability on the wall, especially if you’re painting hallways and rooms where you know people often rub against the walls (it helps that it is scrubbable too!).

It’s also good enough for anyone to use and get a decent flow off the brush. Even if you’re not the best with painting, you should see your walls left with a smooth enough finish and just the fainted sheen.

Is Crown Trade Eggshell Paint glossy?

No. It can have a nice sheen if you’re getting pre-mixed eggshell paint in a specific colour, but you don’t need to worry about your surface looking glossy after that second coat. If you were looking for a paint which has a mid to high sheen on the wall, you might prefer Crown Trade Gloss instead.

Is Crown Trade Eggshell Paint good for bathrooms and kitchens?

The two rooms in the house that are most susceptible to mould often don’t take eggshell paint very well, but if you have something reliable like Crown Steracryl Mould Inhibiting Acrylic Eggshell, you’ll find that mould is nothing to worry about. 

It’s also important to know that this version of their eggshell is so popular that they’ve now made a new version which can be pre-mixed. You can find that here, although it does sell out quite quickly.

Is Crown Trade Eggshell washable?

Each product will let you know in the description if it is washable. Most are, making them a great choice for high traffic areas. For anyone thinking about painting in such a space, especially on floors & furniture, make sure you take a look at our range of specialist paint.
