We’re proud of our heritage. A family-run business, The Paint Shed has been selling paint over 60 years. We’ve grown a great deal to become one of the UK’s fastest growing trade paint retailers since opening our first store in Edinburgh.
Now we have 18 stores across Scotland and the North of England. Our stores are open to all - whether you are a professional painter and decorator, or a DIY-enthusiast. Our friendly and knowledgeable staff are here to answer any questions you may have about our products or give you advice relating to your projects - helping you get the job done right first time.
Using advanced colour matching technology and high-spec tinting machines, we can provide all your favourite brands of paint in the colour of your choice, mixed to order in store.
Many of our stores offer a free local delivery service to surrounding areas. Ask in store when you order, or give us a call to arrange.
Our full range can be ordered in store, including designer brands. If we don’t have it in stock, we’ll arrange for delivery. You can also order by phone – we’d love to hear from you.
Trade Credit Accounts
Available for trade customers, a trade account makes managing your cash flow a whole lot easier and provides 30 days free credit. Ask in store for an application form.
