The Bedroom blitz

Jennifer Gardner, a professional painter and decorator from Hertfordshire, transformed a customer’s bedroom with TeknosPro coatings, meeting the customer’s request for a pure white finish across the wooden furniture and ceiling. 

Futura Aqua 40, a water-based coating, was used over an undercoat on the walk-in wardrobe. The MDF texture of the wardrobe required a quality paint that would leave a beautiful finish. She chose Futura Aqua 40 for this job as it offers excellent consistency and a smooth semi-gloss finish with no brush marks. The ceilings were then painted with two coats of TeknosPro 5, a water-based acrylate dispersion paint designed for use on dry indoor surfaces.

Impressed with how durable TeknosPro 5 and Futura Aqua are, Gardner commented, “My customer absolutely loved the white finish and I was amazed that a water-based coating could offer the same end result as an oil-based finish. They are easy to roll on and consistent enough for the original work to not flash through. TeknosPro will now be my go-to choice of paint. The coatings were better than anything I have previously used by a mile!”
