Gloss Paint: A Shining Solution for Durable and Vibrant Finishes

Here at, we recognise the unique appeal and functionality of gloss paint. Renowned for its high sheen and reflective qualities, gloss paint is a popular choice among our customers. In this article, we will explore what gloss paint is, why it is a preferred choice for many decorating projects, and the best surfaces to apply it on, showcasing some of our exquisite Farrow & Ball Full Gloss range. 


What is Gloss Paint? 


Gloss paint is a type of paint that dries to a shiny, highly reflective finish. It's typically oil or water-based and known for its robust and durable nature. The high-gloss finish not only imparts a sleek and vibrant look but also serves as a protective coating, making surfaces more resistant to wear and tear. 


Why Use Gloss Paint? 


Durability: Gloss paint is highly durable, making it ideal for surfaces that endure a lot of handling or weather exposure. Its tough finish resists scratches and knocks, maintaining its appearance over time. 


Easy Maintenance: The slick surface of gloss paint, such as 'Farrow & Ball Full Gloss - No 294 Paean Black', makes it easy to clean. Marks and dirt can be effortlessly wiped away, keeping the surfaces looking fresh and new. 


Aesthetic Appeal: The reflective quality of gloss paint, showcased in options like 'Farrow & Ball Full Gloss - No 80 Saxon Green' and 'Farrow & Ball Full Gloss - No 57 Off-Black', adds depth and brightness to colours making them stand out vividly. 


Protective Qualities: Gloss paint forms a protective barrier that is moisture-resistant, which is particularly beneficial in damp environments or on exterior surfaces. 


Ideal Surfaces for Gloss Paint 


Gloss paint is versatile and can be applied to a variety of surfaces, including: 


Woodwork: Doors, skirting boards, and window frames are perfect candidates for gloss paint. 'Farrow & Ball Full Gloss - No 4 Old White' is a classic choice that provides a clean and crisp finish. 


Metal Surfaces: Railings, outdoor furniture, and metal fixtures benefit from the protective qualities of gloss paint, as seen in 'Farrow & Ball Full Gloss - No 82 Dix Blue'.
