Paints and Paint Colours

Let us source your favourite colour in a can of paint!

If you would like to paint a room (walls, ceilings), woodwork (furniture, trim), metal (gates, railings), or uPVC (windows, doors) with a tinted paint that resembles your favourite colour or a colour inspired by nature, earthy materials, a region of the world, a design style, textiles, or to capture a mood, we can help. We create paint colours to suit your individual taste. Get your preferred paint colours mixed to order in a specific finish (e.g., matt, eggshell, satin, or gloss) at your local decor store.

Albany - Quality Trade Paint

Buy quality trade paints at Albany Home Decor instead of retail paints at DIY stores.

Note: Not all paints are created equal. Trade paints are superior to retail paints in terms of product formulations (e.g., raw materials and specialist ingredients) and overall performance (e.g., opacity, durability, and colour retention) and are worth paying extra for. Trade paints contain better quality and greater quantities of pigment (e.g., titanium dioxide) and protective ingredients than retail paints. Trade paints are also tested and approved to a higher standard than their retail counterparts.

Avoid paying exorbitant prices for the trade paints of mass-market brands at their direct-to-consumer decorating centres. If you are a value shopper, please contact your nearest Albany Home Decor store in Ireland or a Brewers Decorator Centre in the UK for prices on Albany paints. We (Slipstream) create customised colours and paint colour codes for our clients. 

Get your preferred paints mixed to order by experts using high-quality tint bases and colourants at your local decor store.
