During the lockdown, you should only be going outside to shop for essentials. Sadly, despite our personal beliefs, paint doesn’t qualify as essential.

Paint is selling out fast at many of our favourite DIY stores. Some stores have stopped selling it online altogether, for example, B&Q has limited their online range to essential repair supplies.

We’ve rounded up a few of the places where you can still buy paint online.

Where can you still buy paint online?


The DIY superstore is still selling tins of paint. Better yet, they are currently offering a three for two deal on Homebase paint. Most of the Homebase own brand collection is still in stock and will be delivered within 10 days.


If you need evidence of the boom in DIY in the UK, take a look at the Wickes website. Due to the high demand, you will have to wait in a virtual queue to enter the website.

However, the brand is still selling paint. They even have a 2 for £26 offer on Dulux paints, and 2 for £20 offer on Wickes own brand.
But, the brand is a longer lead time than usual for delivery.

The Range usually stocks a large collection of paint. But, most of the standard paint pots aren’t currently available to buy online.

However, they still have a large collection of tester pots available to buy for £1.49. They are perfect for small upcycle projects, or this dalmation wall transformation.


Amazon still has a large range of colours available to purchase. However, the online giant is currently prioritising essentials, so you might wait longer than the standard shipping time.
