There is nothing like a fresh coat of paint to have your home looking as good as new. Whether you are painting your interior or exterior, having the right paint for the job is integral to getting a beautiful, long lasting finish.

 With Dulux’s extensive range of paint and the expertise of our team at Colourplus, it is easy to find the perfect product for each stage of your project.

Interior painting projects


Dulux Wash&Wear® is the perfect paint for interior walls. With extensive testing to optimise stain resistance and durability, this paint is specially formulated to ensure a freshly painted finish for longer. 

The Dulux Wash&Wear range includes low sheen, semi-gloss, gloss, matt and mould resistant kitchen and bathroom paints, so there is a product for every purpose around your home.

It is important to use a low sheen paint to hide imperfections when painting ceilings. Dulux Ceiling White is tintable, and provides a flat finish with excellent hiding power, ideal for ceilings.

This low VOC paint has a two hour recoat time which makes getting the project finished quick and easy.

The trims around your home take more daily wear than other surfaces so it is best to paint them accordingly, so they look good for longer.

Dulux Aquanamel® Low Sheen is a premium water based acrylic enamel and dries to a tough finish. It resists knocking, chipping and yellowing and is ideal for doors, architraves, timber trim, walls and skirting boards.

Exterior painting projects


For exterior painting, a tough, hardwearing finish that provides protection from the elements is key.

Dulux Weathershield® has been designed to provide long term protection from all weather conditions and is formulated to expand and contract with the surface, meaning it won’t peel, flake or blister. The Dulux Weathershield range includes ColourGuard™ paint, which has been specifically formulated for superior colour fade resistance and is ideal dark colours.
