Damp areas of the home are often very prone to unsightly mould, which can be aesthetically displeasing and quite bad for your health. There is now an easy way to transform your bathroom with a mould resistant paint makeover. Clean away any mould growth first, and once the surface is ready for painting, use New Look Mould & Mildew Proof paint, in any colour that you choose. Bathroom paint colour schemes don’t always need to be painted soft neutral shades, choose sophisticated tones of deep blue or charcoal for an opulent, up to date, bathroom makeover.



Mouldy walls immediately make a room look tired and dirty. Not the welcoming, enveloping space that you want to spend time in. Revamp your mouldy interior walls by prepping the surface and applying two coats of New Look Mould & Mildew Proof paint. You can be assured that choosing a beautiful, crisp white, or soft neutral will stay looking new and mould free for at least five years, thanks to the New Look guarantee! Simply apply two coats of our mould resistant paint in the colour of your choice for a fresh, updated living space.


Exterior walls can often be very susceptible to damp conditions. This in turn leads to mould growth. If you want your exterior to look smart and have great street appeal, then it is time to get rid of that mould. It is as easy as removing all excess mould, prepping the surface, and applying two coats of the self-priming New Look Mould & Mildew Proof Exterior Paint. You can choose any colour that you want and be reassured that it will withstand tough exterior conditions. Not only is this a mould resistant paint range, but it will also withstand all weather conditions, as well as cracking and peeling.




Kitchens are often the central hub of a home. With kitchen walls being subject to intense heat and moisture, often they become breeding grounds for unsightly mould growth. New Look Mould & Mildew Proof has been designed for kitchen areas and prevents all new growth of mould and mildew. So have fun choosing some of the latest colours that will refresh your kitchen space and transform it into an appealing living area. Try colours such as Misty Moon, Double Delight, Coney or Listening Waters for a splash of subdued colour against crisp, white accessories.
