Win with Prominent Paints

Instead of the traditional flowers, chocolates, hand cream and soap gifts so lovingly presented in celebration of Mother’s Day each year – why not give Mom a more timeless gift? One that will continually remind her of how much she is appreciated and cherished! Give her the gift of a Prominent Paints Select DIY do-over – and transform her room from drab to fab. Prominent Paints is giving one reader a R500 voucher for their gorgeous new Select range, so that you can transform mom’s room and her day.

The personal touch of you and your children painting a space and reminding her it is just for her will be a memory that will last forever. Prominent Paints Select range caters for the budget conscious DIY paint enthusiast, without compromising quality, and is the ideal choice this Mother’s Day. With a seven year paint film guarantee, this interior and exterior high-quality, hardwearing, water-based, low VOC, low odour paint, ticks all the checks and balances when it comes to quality and affordability.

With a Matt, Sheen and Textured option to choose from – there’s a solution for every preference – ensuring there is somethig for everyone. The Matt and Sheen options are available in standard colours and a clear tint base in packaging sizes of 1L, 5L and 20L. Select Textured, also available in standard colours, is available in 5L and 20L.

Prominent Paints Select Sheen is washable and scrubbable and a good indoor and outdoor option with a velvet smooth finish and can be used on correctly primed walls, metal, wood and unglazed bricks. What’s important to remember is that as a rule, the higher the sheen the better the durability and easily withstand a light scrub.

Flat or matt paint has little-to-no shine – its coarse pigments deflect light rather than absorb it, making faults in the underlying surface less obvious. Often thought to be a more elegant finish, be aware that a matt option is prone to scuff and mark. Don’t opt for matt for high-traffic areas – the paint will not withstand the level of cleaning and scrubbing required. That said, the Prominent Paints Select Matt has been engineered for its stain resistance and is an excellent option for walls and ceilings and suitable for indoor or outdoor paint jobs.

The Select Textured option is an exterior only wall coating that is UV-resistant with excellent flexibility which ensures the paint is tough and durable and has the ability to bridge hairline cracks. It’s ideal for all exterior and boundary walls. There is also a Select Wall & Ceiling paint that comes standard in white and is another good interior paint option to consider.

Remember the better the prep, the better the finish – so don’t skip the scraping, sanding, and cleaning. Mom’s, if you would like your room magically transformed, be sure to enter and subtly pass the voucher onto dad to make it happen with the kids. Or maybe you want to spoil your own mom, imagine how much fun you will have with your children making granny’s space special.
