Modern bedroom with timber furniture and green walls.
Give your interior a fresh vibe with a new colour from the British Paints Clean and Protect range.

Colour with confidence

Breathe life into your bedroom and create a snug retreat you can truly relax in, or give family areas a vibrant refresh. The all-new Clean & Protect range from British Paints makes transforming your home and getting a long-lasting finish simple. Being wipeable and low odour, its improved formula is designed to make your D.I.Y. journey a breeze. With innovative UltraProtect™ technology ensuring durable protection against mould and mildew, achieving a quality paint job has never been easier.

Refresh your walls

Clean your walls with Selleys sugar soap, followed by a coat of British Paints Prep 4 in1 (primer, sealer, undercoat and stain blocker). Then apply two coats of your chosen colour. We recommend using 2 litres for a feature wall, 4 litres for a small room (3m x 3m), and 8 litres for a large room (6m x 6m). Still unsure? Use the Bunnings paint calculator. Once dry, make sure to admire your handiwork!

Add finishing touches

Bring your room together with some complementary styling. Begin by anchoring the space with a textured rug, such as jute. Pair it with timber furniture, then incorporate accents in your selected colour palette to tie everything together. Don’t forget to add some indoor plants to bring a touch of the outdoors inside.

Safety tip: When painting, always wear safety equipment (eye protection and mask) and ensure the room is well ventilated. Keep all paint and chemicals out of reach of children and pets. Follow instructions on the back of the pack. Colours shown are as close as possible to actual paint colours.

Health & Safety

Please make sure you use all equipment appropriately and safely when following the advice in these D.I.Y. videos. You need to be familiar with how to use equipment safely and follow the instructions that came with the equipment. If you are unsure, you may feel it is safest to consult an expert, such as the manufacturer or an expert Bunnings Team Member.

Grave health hazards are linked to asbestos, which may be in homes built up to 1990. Health hazards may result from exposure to lead-based paints in older materials and copper chromium arsenic (CCA) treated timber. For information on the dangers of asbestos, lead-based paint and CCA treated timber and tips for dealing with these materials contact your local council's Environmental Health Officer. You can also use a simple test kit from Bunnings to indicate the presence of lead-based paint.
