Absolute Matt Emulsion Paint

Our most popular paint, Absolute Matt Emulsion is a beautiful, chalky, matt finish which is perfect for interior walls and ceilings.

With a ‘barely there’ low-sheen level of just 3%, Absolute Matt provides a sublime chalky finish, often referred to as ‘dead matt’ or ‘flat matt’ paint. It dries to an incredibly flat finish that exudes character.

Absolute Matt is wipeable with a damp cloth or sponge making it practical for the modern home too.

It can be used on a range of surfaces including walls, ceilings and plaster work. It’s the perfect choice for low-traffic areas such as bedrooms, living rooms, dining spaces, and study areas.

Containing zero added VOCs, Absolute Matt Emulsion is kind to the environment. It is also pet-friendly and certified as child-safe paint, under EN 71-3:2019 (Toy Paint Regulations). Absolute Matt is also completely safe to use in children’s rooms, making it a very smart choice for the family home.

Applying Absolute Matt Emulsion

As a water-based paint, Absolute Matt has a quick-drying time of just 2-4 hours and  is virtually odourless, so you can complete your project quickly with minimal disruption. This flat matt finish provides coverage of 14 square metres per litre; we recommend applying two coats for full depth of colour.

Available in the full Little Greene colour palette, the flat matt finish of Absolute Matt Emulsion appears especially rich and sumptuous in darker tones. Try Absolute Matt in ‘Obsidian Green’, ‘Hicks’ Blue’, or ‘Lamp Black’; use these deeper tones in an all-over scheme for real impact.
