Ceiling paint


I am English and not used to the different paint here yet! So many brands and types to choose from. Can anyone tell me which is the best paint to use for ceilings. I want a one coat cover, non drip and splatter, just white no tint. Can anyone help? Thanks to anyone that can help!

How it comes out and how many coats it's going to take is dependent on what condition the ceilings in now.
As far as splatter, any paint is going to splatter to some extent, roll it slow and get less splatter.
Just lay some tarps to reduce clean up time.

To increase the chances of getting a one coat cover, brush the perimeter and fixtures twice and roll the ceiling once. It's the shadowy edges that reveal a one coat paint job. If the ceiling is in bad shape or hasn't been painted in a long time, one coat may not cover very well.

Go to a legitimate paint store,like Sherwin Williams or Benjamin Moore and tell them what you want to do.

I'm not a pro painter but I would bet that I have painted more ceilings in my life then most. I just painted my utility room ceiling with the Rustoleum Zinnser ceiling paint and it is without a doubt the best ceiling paint I have ever used. I highly recommend it. The only thing I would caution about is in a bathroom. There have been reports of color problems in a moist environment.

I must say I have not used the Zinzzer ceiling paint but have read some really good reports. Guess I need to give it a try.

Bought the zinsser ceiling paint, not every store stocks it, but after phoning around found Lowe's had it in stock. It's a little runny but covered superbly well with just the one coat, as it says on the can. Did the perimeters and fixtures twice, thank you for that tip jsheridan will definitely buy again!

I have always used BM Super white Flat. Does all of the above, and is not drippy at all. Go figure.

That's strange, I didn't find it drippy at all. The can that I used was nice and thick, didn't drip at all, that's one of the things I liked about. Glad it worked out for you.
