Want to transform a room? You can now get a free online colour consultancy and paint delivery

General Paints, home to Irish paints Colourtrend and Curator, are now offering complimentary colour consultancies with fully qualified interior designers, as well as contactless home delivery. 


Loads of people have caught the DIY bug during lockdown, and plenty of homes are looking the best they ever have. However, maybe you haven’t been able to decide what would be the best colour for your room, or have had trouble getting your hands on paint.

General Paints, an Irish family business, and known as the company behind Colourtrend and Curator paints are here to help. While their stores are remaining closed, they will be resuming their Click and Collect service at their stores, as well as offering free contactless home delivery.

Edel Nicholson, Head of Marketing at General Paints Group said that the “increased demand” for their products has caused the company to find ways to serve their customers during this exceptional time.

“We want to take this time to thank our customers for their patience and understanding during this challenging time and want to continue to inspire everyone through colour during this period of isolation. We hope our online service can be of assistance to the many tackling DIY jobs in the safety of their own homes. Painting is an incredibly therapeutic activity, so what better way to pass the time than with a home refresh.”

As well as this, General Paints will also be waiving the usual €125 fee for its personalised video Colour Consultancy service. Their interior designers and colour consultants will be able to advise on colour and finish, and can even tailor a whole scheme to a client’s style and preferences.

This is ideal for anyone who has struggled to choose a colour when redecorating, as well as complementary colours for accents and details like skirting boards.
