Last Updated: 23-Nov-2020

For nearly 90 years, Dulux has been on a mission to add colour to people’s lives in homes and communities throughout the UK. During these uncertain times, our primary concern is to help everyone to stay as safe as they possibly can whilst you plan your next decorating project. We are still seeing unprecedented demand for our products but if you have a query about buying Dulux products then, in the first instance, please check our top FAQs below regarding ordering, delivery and customer service. If you need to contact us, please note that our Customer Support teams continue to receive a high volume of queries – whilst our aim is to respond to queries within 5 working days it may take a little longer,  so please bear with us.


Where can I get Dulux paint from?

Paint can be purchased from any Dulux stockist (subject to availability); colour testers can be purchased direct from Dulux through this website. Our products are in high demand and availability of products and/or colours may change from day to day and from one store to another.


I’ve been unable to add items to my shopping cart?

Once you have chosen a product and colour combination, we will display the purchase options available to you. Items that are available to purchase online will have a clear ‘Add to shopping cart’ and/or a ‘Buy from a retailer’ option displayed. Where items are not available to purchase online there will be an option for you to find a local store to visit. If online buying options are presented but you are unable to continue to purchase, please chat with our virtual advisors for assistance in case of a technical issue or send us a message.

Is Dulux/AkzoNobel redirecting its manufacturing to support the nation in the efforts to beat Covid-19?

At our manufacturing sites, we are making paint and coatings products for a whole range of critical industries and for the construction sector. For example, our coatings are used on hospital beds and other metal equipment (including oxygen bottles and ventilators), which are currently in high demand. Our protective coatings products are also vital in keeping the country’s infrastructure running (our products are used widely in energy generation and distribution). We are therefore prioritising our resources in these areas to ensure production of these key items can continue.
