Best white paint for wood that don't yellow

20 Answers

Satinwood has a good light shein finish that doesn't go yellow quite as bad a gloss but you will need to use two coats of undercoat and i would recommend a good quality paint like dulux.

Good paintwork is all about the preparation that you do if its new wood it will need a light sand and a couple of coats of primer followed by a good quality undercoat and sanding in between coats then a few coats of a good quality gloss its my own preference but I like Dulux Hi gloss which gives a mirror sheen however as gloss is oil based it will yellow so there is a call for satinwood finishes due to this

It is best to prime all painting surfaces to prevent stains from bleeding through the new paint. Primer must match the type of paint you have chosen. For furniture it's best to use a satin or semigloss finish in either a latex or an oil-based paint.

If you can get it buy solvent based paint, the water based alternative is useless, I did a complete house last year for a customer and initially purchased water based gloss from B&Q.

It was not so bad on skirting boards and on fairly thin door edging, but on doors, it was awful.

You can only lightly clean water based gloss, where as solvent based gloss you can wash and it is fine.

You will be far better off with solvent based Gloss in my view. And my customer was well impressed with the finish on her doors, and I did everyone in her house.

eggshell and satin paint are best for interior walls, whereas semi-gloss and gloss paint are best for trim and woodwork

Best white paint for wood...
I've used me tried many different products.
The one I enjoy working with is Dulux once.
I don't rate all these non drip products.
Plain and simple Dulux once.
And so long as you've prepped the wood to be painted and apply an undercoat before your final oil based coat/coats then you shouldn't experience yellowing.
