As the coronavirus (COVID-19) lockdown and self-isolation continues at home, a lot of us are looking to update our space as we embark on some painting and decorating projects.

On Monday 4th January, Prime Minister Boris Johnson announced a third national lockdown in England to help curb the spread of COVID-19. The majority of shops have closed again, and even with the exception of hardware stores being listed as ‘essential’, many have remained closed in order to abide by the government’s social distancing guidelines.

Additionally, police guidance has stated that going out to buy paint and brushes simply to redecorate a kitchen, for example, is not a ‘reasonable excuse’ for someone to leave their home during the coronavirus lockdown.

So many of us are left asking the same question, ‘Where can I buy paint online?’

You’ll find some retailers and paint manufacturers are currently experiencing knock-on effects as a result of coronavirus, with issues including limited supplies, logistical issues and increased product demand.

If you’re looking for the best places to buy paint online, whether it’s interior paint for walls and ceilings, kitchen or bathroom paint, or masonry paints for exteriors, see a list of retailers – and the types of paint available to buy – below.

Designer Paint

Designer Paint is still making deliveries for online orders, and is following the advice of Public Health England. Designer Paint offers the widest choice of paints online based on colour, finish and surface. Brands include Dulux Heritage, Rust-Oleum, Little Greene, Graham & Brown, Farrow & Ball and many more. You can also buy decorating essentials, such as brushes and rollers.

Dulux

Dulux had to temporarily suspended its website for all new orders in April last year, but customers can continue to shop as normal. It’s worth knowing that it may take longer than usual to process your order.

‘Due to exceptional demand and operational safety measures, orders may take longer to fulfil than our usual timescale. We apologise for any inconvenience caused by this,’ says the team online. For more product availability, check Dulux’s local stockists to enquire about delivery.

You can shop house paints, wall paints and more, and please note, you may have to wait longer for delivery.
