FAQs

In our expert opinion, the best primer and paint for furniture are Tikkurila products, specifically the Helmi primer and Helmi 10 or Helmi 30 furniture paint. These products provide an exceptionally durable finish that lasts much longer compared to alternatives like Rust-Oleum.

There are a few primary points to consider when choosing what furniture paint you need. It typically falls into what kind of glossy tones you want on the furniture and where the furniture is located.  In this range, the most popular paint types chosen for furniture would be 

  • Matt
    • A matt finish on furniture will look smooth (if you buy good quality paint) and forego that shiny look you sometimes get from pre-painted furniture. Many customers prefer the finish that comes from Rustoleum Chalky Furniture Paint, which we have available in more than a dozen colours. 
  • Eggshell
    • Many homes, especially in kitchens, are now opting for eggshell colours on furniture like cabinets and tables. If you want a premium eggshell finish on furniture, Farrow & Ball Estate Eggshell is an excellent choice.
  • Satin
    • Velvety tones can work well on most furniture, and a suitable satin finish makes it all the easier.  A reliable satin on prepped furniture will be durable, with some slight reflection from light.

This isn’t to say gloss paint can’t be used on furniture. There are some circumstances where it may be an appropriate choice, but with it’s higher sheen and predisposition to have a slick finish, it does tend to be left to features on furniture rather than an entire object.

When getting a garden in working order, you’ll want to weigh up whether you’re looking for your furniture to match decking and fences or to have their own colour. If you want everything in good condition and done quickly, Sadolin Garden Furniture Stain & Protector is a good choice. It comes in teak, cedar & oak to give you a little variety on the intensity of the finish.  For anyone working exclusively with wooden furniture, both inside and out, our Woodcare Section has some great products from the likes of Demidekk, Dulux & Johnstone’s. 

When it comes to painting wooden furniture we recommend you follow these steps:

  1. Ensure you have the correct accessories to hand - paint tray, masking tape, roller pole and sandpaper.
  2. Buy the correct quantity of paint and primer to achieve the right coverage for your chosen piece of furniture 
  3. Clean your furniture - removing any existing flaking paint or marks by giving your wooden furniture a light sand. This will also help you achieve a lovely smooth surface once you have finished painting.
  4. Apply your selected primer, our top rated primer for wooden furniture is Tikkurila Helmi Primer
  5. Apply two coats of your chosen colour choice in our best wood furniture finish - Tikkurila Helmi 10 or Helmi 30 

 

Getting furniture ready to paint is important, especially if you’re working with a surface which has been previously painted. In most cases, you’ll want to sand down and clean up the surface to give your paint the best chance of adhering. You’ll be able to find sanding blocks and associated products to help you get started in our Cleaning & Prep section.

For anyone who wants absolutely no fuss and wants to paint over existing paint and stain, you will want to get Owatrol ESP- Easy Surface Prep. It’s a primer that lets you prepare shinier surfaces, so things like kitchen cabinets which would need sanding down can forego needing so.

The Paint Shed is here to help anyone with their furniture paint needs.
