why choose tikkurila paint?

An introduction to finest quality Nordic-made paint brand – Tikkurila by Kate Gaynor of Tikkurila Ireland

Value for Money

The Irish market is flooded with different brands of paint, all with varying price tags and levels of quality. The first, most evident, characteristic which sets Tikkurila paint apart from it’s competitors is it’s price point. Considering the excellent quality you know you can rely on from this Nordic brand, it comes with a very competitive price tag. We all know that there is nothing more expensive than cheap paint so it is reassuring to be able to purchase paint that you can trust to perform for many years without breaking the bank.

Tikkurila Optiva 5 Wall Paint is rich in quality resins so it is highly scrubbable and stain/scuff resistant ensuring it looks beautiful for many years to come.

Long Lasting

The longevity of paint is an interesting factor to consider. If you purchase cheap paint to freshen up a shed for instance, you may find yourself having to repaint it every spring. Once you add up the yearly cost of paint plus the time and effort you need to put in and compare it to using a top quality paint such as Valtti Opaque which can last from 10 to 15 years you may be surprised which works out cheaper, and less effort. Not only does having high performing, long lasting paint save you time and money, it is also better for the environment so everyone is a winner.
