Dulux Trade Paint; What’s the Big Deal?

Did you know that the Dulux brand name was made by combining the words durable and luxury? Neither did we, but it could be a good thing to know for a pub quiz.

Dulux has been the brand of choice for homeowners for decades, so it’s unsurprising that they are the UK’s leading paint brand. It’s a similar story for the trade arm of the business, which is why all three of our stores stock an impressive range of Dulux Trade Paint. Not only that, but we understand how annoying it is when you run out of a specialist Dulux colour, with only a wall or two left to paint. This is why all of our stores also have a Dulux tinting machine so we can mix any Dulux colour.

If you normally use another well-known paint brand then you may well be wondering why Dulux does carry such a reputable image, and we’re here to tell you.

Perfect for Interiors

Vintage style interior décor is making a comeback in a huge way. The colours being chosen are muted with Scandinavian influences and the finish is shabby chic and rough around the edges. The perfect choice to achieve this look is Dulux Trade Diamond Eggshell Tinted Colour. It looks great used subtly on woodwork or for more of a statement on the walls. This product offers superior durability and boasts being wipeable and stain resistant as its main selling points, making it a great choice for families with children and pets. We sell this in three sizes and as the name suggests we can mix this into any BS, RAL or NCS colour as well as offer equivalents to other leading brand colours, so it really couldn’t be simpler.

Every year it’s very common for landlords to want their rental properties sprucing up, and a lick of paint can often be the best way to do this. To lighten things up and make a space look bigger and brighter to go back on the market something like 7.5 litres of Dulux Trade Vinyl Matt in Pure Brilliant White is perfect, it lasts ages, applies smoothly and is affordable to buy.

Our Pick of Dulux Exterior Products

The three step Weathershield system is fantastic for protecting and prepping woodwork on the outside of homes. It offers 8 year, all weather protection and also protects against decay and blue stain fungi. We highly recommend step 1 which is Dulux Trade Weathershield Preservative Primer especially on untreated wood. This is often a step that’s overlooked for speed, but it does really pay off in terms of durability longer term.
