As it's a bit quiet on here I thought I'd find a topic to discuss.

Throughout my house I've used several finishes on sills/skirts/doors n frames etc..

There's Crown fast flow gloss, bedec Aqua gloss, Johnstones Aqua Satin, Benjamin Moore Aura and Advance.

The crown, bedec and jonnos sills have all scuffed up fairly easy - quite disappointing really.

BM lasting lots better and retaining a good colour (all white).

Jonnos has definitely dulled, crown slightly, bedec normal.

Oh there's little Greene eggshell too - overrated imo for the price.

The one I want yo try next is BM Scuff X, could be the answer for markings but primarily designed for commercial spaces.

Have you had good/bad experiences???

I was thinking about using jonnos wb gloss on a huge staircase but, I’m not sure where to go with it now really.

This is the problem, go waterbased have regular maintenance have oil have yellow.
BM is so expensive and not easily bought if needed quick.

Might go crown advance +

I like the johnstones but it just doesn't keep its whiteness. BM Aura do a suoerwhite which hasn't slightly faded in 2 years, it's solid. The Advance is a hybrid and side by side will fade slightly but it's an. Amazing product and to be fair both go along way. It's a bit inconvenient being online ordering but it's not that much hassle and Im much happier using paint that performs so well. You can also build up discount with them.

I popped some on in one room and it's not doing too bad tbf. Bit brush marky but cheap enough.

Used Johnstones Acrylic eggshell on some wood and doors a few years back and that's held up very well and it's rock hard.

Stix is very impressive especially as a bridging primer

I bought it for doing walls but thought it was worth a punt on the woodwork as I was sick of OB gloss yellowing in 5 minutes. It seemed to a take a couple of days to reach full hardness but now it's pretty sturdy. Brush marky as you say but being satin it isn't too noticeable. Went on fast and easy.

Also testing some on some anodised aluminium door frame and it seems to be holding well there too.
