What our Customers Say
We recommend painting a swatch in different spots in the room to see how the light will affect the colour. Painting the colour onto a piece of card allows you to move the colour around easily.

Our extremely low VOC paint is better for you and better for the environment. Free from toxic fumes and odours, our water-based paints are quick-drying too, so rooms can be re-occupied as soon as the brushes have been packed up!
Although we have tried our best, we aren’t in control of your monitor settings so we can’t promise that the colour is exactly as you are seeing it on-screen. So, the best thing is for us to send you a colour chart which is painted with our actual paint.
Our Matt emulsion and Wipeable emulsion paints come in two tin sizes. 2.5L and 5L. Eggshell comes in 1L and 2.5L tins. Our Grepp primer is available in 750ml or 2.5L tins.
In layman’s terms, a primer ensures that the paint has a surface to stick onto. We sell Grepp. It is not our own brand but it is our brand of choice. It’s a fast-drying white pigmented Primer which acts as a two-in-one undercoat and primer. It also acts as a sealant and stain block and provides excellent adhesion to most surfaces.
The colour you choose will also affect how much paint you need. If you are painting a light colour over a dark one, you are likely to need more coats. Or if you have high ceilings, you will need more paint than you perhaps realise for your walls. You can use our paint calculator which can give you a steer and this table as a rough guide.

You can order our low VOC paint via our website or by phoning the showroom direct and we do offer a free ‘click and collect service’. We can deliver paint to anywhere in the UK. For overseas delivery, please get in touch.
As a small company, we regret we are not yet at the stage of being able to offer our customers free delivery. We work hard however to get the best delivery prices for you. All our prices are inclusive of VAT and we offer a standard three to five day delivery although sometimes, customers get their paint earlier than this. If you need paint urgently, we can offer also a next day delivery.
We offer three types of interior finish: Matt Emulsion, Wipeable Emulsion and Eggshell.
Matt Emulsion and Wipeable Emulsion are for walls and ceilings and Eggshell is for interior wood e.g. skirting boards, dado rails, doors, freestanding and fitted furniture, including kitchens. Simple. So, the only decision you need to make really is whether you want a very flat matt finish or whether it is important to you to be able to wipe down your walls.
Matt Emulsion gives a lovely, chalky, matt finish on walls and ceilings.
Wipeable is exactly that: wipeable. With this finish the marks left by small hands or muddy wellies can be easily removed with a damp cloth. That’s why we recommend Wipeable in heavy traffic areas of the home such as hallways, bathrooms and kitchens. It is similar in look to Matt Emulsion but has a very low, barely-there sheen.
Eggshell looks a bit like…eggshell and is naturally hard-wearing, with a very light sheen common to this kind of finish.
To see the different finishes for yourself, visit our showroom. Occasionally with some colours, there are very slight variations in colour between finishes within the accepted tolerances. In situ it is not noticeable but we’d rather mention it as we prefer our customers to be fully informed. All our sample pots come in Matt Emulsion and our colour charts are painted in Wipeable.
When measuring up a room to work out how much paint you need, don’t forget to discount fitted wardrobes, kitchen units and windows as this reduces the amount of wall space you need to cover.
Do think about the surface you are painting onto. Is it primed or does it need a primer/undercoat? Equally important is what type of paint is already on the walls. Our paint is water-based and it won’t adhere well to a wall which has used an oil-based paint. If you don’t know what the paint is that you want to paint over, be guided by the level of sheen. If you can see a clear sheen, it would be best practise to sand the wall down and prime it first.
When painting kitchens, be clear to your decorator about what type of finish you are after. Some customers prefer paint to be applied with a brush as they feel brush marks add to the charm of a hand painted kitchen. Others specify a roller for a more even finish.
“Our first experience of PTTG was very positive. We were concerned about mess and quality and were happy on both fronts. I should add that my wife (Jenny Gibbs OBE, Founder and Principal of KLC) is an experienced interior designer and has exacting standards: I am pleased to report that they were met!” January 2020
Director, Oliver Bea Design
“I just wanted to tell you how happy I am with the decorating downstairs – your decorator has just left. They’ve done such a thorough, fantastic job, I’ve really appreciated their eye for detail. Terry was super efficient and on top of everything, it was a pleasure to meet him too. What a credit to your company they both are!” August 2019
Creative Director of bespoke joinery company BSPK
“It is the best water-based paint I’ve ever tried. It flows beautifully, is easy to work with and it dries in good time – not too quickly, not too long.”
‘I’m over the moon with the decorating work that Paint the Town Green have carried out at my flat. I’d happily recommend them to anyone else needing decoration works in their home.’ November 2018
Founder of Yogi Yoga
“As a yoga studio, the idea of non-toxic paints was compatible with our ethos and the idea of promoting healthy living and sustainable products. I was very impressed with the outcome. The finish is stunning and the paint has true texture and depth to it. My builders also liked using it as it has a great hold and does not require endless coats.”
Plank PR and customer
“Paint The Town Green re-decorated my office whilst my team remained working in it – that is testimony to their professionalism and the quality of their paint. It is odourless and I am delighted with the finished product. Phil Robinson works to a very high standard and I would highly recommend his company “
TV presenter and customer
“I needed my entire house decorated in a very short space of time and Paint The Town Green were impressively quick quiet and highly professional. They offer a wide range of contemporary colours and I was able to continue living in my house without the smell of paint.”
Journalist and customer
“My experience with Paint The Town Green was nothing short of spectacular. The quality of workmanship was far better than I’d even anticipated. It is just perfect. I was also thrilled that, as someone who is often working from home, I was able to do that comfortably throughout. There were simply no fumes! The workmen I met were quiet and incredibly tidy – it made the whole thing much simpler and easier than I’d expected it to be. I simply cannot recommend them highly enough.”
Blogger, writer and customer
“I can highly recommend Paint The Town Green. I really like the ideal of eco paints, particularly as an asthmatic, for the health benefits. There is a great selection of colours and I am thrilled with the results. “
Nikki Rees Interior Design
“I love that Paint the Town Green paint is better for the environment but is still a quality, durable paint with fantastic colours.” 2017
Fallfordiy blogger & Pinner of the Year 2017
“I stumbled across an amazing paint company on Instagram and knew I wanted to work with them to decorate this room. Paint the Town Green offer a beautiful choice of contemporary colours and all their paints are non-toxic, environmentally friendly and odourless. Perfect for painting any room, but especially for spaces you’re going to have younger family members in.
For a waterbased paint the colour has a beautiful depth and needed only two coats. The paint dries within two hours which makes finishing a room quick and easy. Especially when you leave it right until the last minute like we did!” 2017
“I am delighted to say that I have used Paint the Town Green paints and the decorating team in my own house as well as on client projects and am reluctant to use anyone else. Phil and his staff are professional and a joy to have in the home. They understand the trials of having to live through a decorative change and are sensitive when it comes to the setting up and packing up each day. They’re incredibly tidy and meticulous and there was daily communication in terms of managing the job. There were no fumes during the process due to their paints being eco friendly. I love the brand and the colours and would highly recommend them for your decorating project.” 2018
‘Thank you to Phil and the whole Paint the Town Green team for the work that you did at our new property, and for your much appreciated support and guidance both in scoping the work and during its delivery” 2018
“I would highly recommend Paint the Town Green as decorators. We have used them for a number of decorating jobs and all their team have been very professional and a pleasure to have in the house. We felt that Phil and Terry took pains to ensure the experience was as hassle free as possible for us. Thank you!” March 2019
“Phil came around to quote. He was thorough, detailed and very clear. We had other quotes that weren’t as precise and, to be frank, a little bit cheaper. I went for one of these and completely regretted it. It was a false economy. We ended up spending more than Phil’s quote for a poorer finish.
Now I look back and think we should have gone with the professionals….Paint the Town Green” March 2019
‘I was so impressed with the service here – prompt, organised and the paint was ‘new’ to my decorators too who were really impressed. What was a bit of an unloved area of the house now looks so smart. “Night Swimming’ is a lovely deep colour and matched with brass hardware looks amazing. There was no noticeable odour – really impressed and lovely to have expert help on the doorstep’ August 2019
Phil quoted for decoration of my house post-building-work. There was a lot of damage as a result of the work and Phil explained the challenges and options for overcoming them. I went with a cheaper quote because I was cash-strapped but quickly realised it was a false economy.
There have been “misunderstandings” about the scope of work with my contractors resulting in a higher price and I can see where I have tried to cut corners to save money, it just hasn’t worked. Given my choice again, I would go with Paint the Town Green. December 2019
