Dunelm is one of our favourite affordable homeware shops, so we were thrilled to hear that the store has launched a range of own-brand paints and wallpaper.
The new Dunelm-brand paints are water-based and easy to wipe clean. Available colours include on-trend tones like sage, dusky pink and vanilla, with each coat touch dry in as little as an hour.
Plus, the range includes other makeover must-haves, including self-adhesive floor tiles and splashbacks to quickly transform your rooms on a budget. And if you’re looking for non-permanent ways to glam up a rented home, the Decorate & Co-ordinate range also includes removable wall stickers.
‘The idea behind the range is that customers looking for a brand-new look will be able to purchase the paint, wallpaper and accessories they need, all in one place,’ says Debbie Drake, design director at Dunelm. ‘Each design and each shade has been carefully curated to achieve a stylish and cohesive design scheme in any home.’
If you’ve ever been on a decorating spree, you’ll know that costs can quickly mount for even simplest-seeming job – you always end up needing a couple of extra tins or rolls! Luckily, Dunelm’s paint and wallpaper range was specifically developed to offer an Instagram-ready quality finish at a reasonable price.
And when we say reasonable, we’re talking about paint prices starting at £16 for 2.5l, and wallpaper from just £8 per roll!
The whole range is ready to shop now online and in-store – all paint shades are currently available in matt emulsion, with eggshell versions set for release next month.
If you want some inspiration to get you started, here are five of our favourites from the range!
Dunelm’s own-brand paint and wallpaper range: our highlights
Willow matt emulsion paint
- £16 for 2.5l
Pale, naturalistic greens like Dunelm’s Willow matt emulsion are everywhere right now – and we think it’s a trend that’s here to stay. Sage tones are soothing and versatile, looking just as at home paired with whites and creams for a cottagecore look as they do against dusky pink or pastels in a contemporary scheme.
Havisham wallpaper in Navy
- £12 a roll
With its rich colours and repeating bird motif, the design of the Havisham wallpaper puts us in mind of the stately home-inspired patterns you’d find by luxury brands like Little Greene – but on a much more affordable budget!
Space Blue matt emulsion
- £16 for 2.5l
No matter what trends come and go, a bold royal blue is always in style. You can use a rich blue shade like Dunelm’s Space Blue to make a statement in any room, although we think it’s so gorgeous we’d use it in the living room for everyone to see!
Banana Leaf wallpaper
- £10 a roll
When the warmer weather arrives, it’s natural to want to give your decor a little tropical twist – step forward, this uplifting banana leaf design! The pattern is vibrant, but the deep green colouring keeps it from being overwhelming – meaning your walls will still look fab even in the winter months.
Russet matt emulsion
- £16 for 2.5l
This rich red will truly come into its own as autumn approaches, with its warm brown undertones that calls to mind falling leaves. Use it in a living room or bedroom for instant glamour, but think it would look fantastic in a hallway, making for a truly grand entrance to your home!
