Thankfully, we’ve got everything you need to make the best decision when it comes to your garden. Check out our carousel content for some shed paint ideas and read on for our top tips to get started.

Shed paint ideas and considerations

Choose colours that complement your landscape

Whether you want a bold statement or a subtle finish, be sure to match your paint to your garden aesthetic. Consider the shade spectrum and choose one that complements your perennials.

Pick premium quality paints

Your paint needs to last, so only choose paints such as 100% acrylic latex paint for a robust finish.

Prepare your shed before painting

Strip away any previous colour and smooth away impurities, then apply a base layer before applying your chosen paint on top.

Finish with sealant

To ensure your paint lasts, finish it with a waterproof sealant. Then stand back and enjoy your shed’s new look!
