Have a house to do where there will be a mix of old gloss- often with knots bleeding though and new joinery in timber/mdf.

Current project used Johnstones satin in oil & water based- oil based covered better but drying times makes for delays & water based needed lots of coats due to opacity.

Would ideally like one trim paint or everything- woodwork will be white, walls off white-
thinking about trying Bedec or even Dulux Diamond satin. Any ideas welcome!

Diamond Satin was discontinued some time ago, but the Bedec satin is readily available, tough and non-yellowing. You won't go far wrong with it.

I wouldn't use oil and water-based finishes in the same space, as (assuming it's white) the oil will yellow far more rapidly and turn quite noticeably a different colour. Just make sure you do thorough preparation and a meths clean to promote adhesion over old painted surfaces. Bridging primers such as Zinsser 123 can be used as a basecoat, but Bedec satin should adhere pretty well over a clean keyed surface. If there will be a lot of traffic in the house, then an adhesion primer is a good idea. :thumbright:

I have just finished painting a room in Armstead Durable eggshell and I used it on the wood trim as well. I have to say it looks really nice as long as you don't mind the fairly satin finish of it. It went on really nice and 2 coats did a great job of covering very yellow gloss.
