How can I select my colour?+

We recommend using our A5 colour samples in-situ to ensure you are happy with your colour choice.
These samples (called brushouts) are made using real Aalto paint, "brushed out" onto A5 card. You can order these online for free, and test the colour by positioning them in different areas of your home in different lights.

These samples negate the need for testpots.

How do I order paint?+

It's never been easier to purchase Aalto Paint.

  3. Choose your quantity
  4. Add to cart - it's that simple!

I can't find the colour I want online. What are my options?+

Over the years Aalto have created thousands of colours - many more than the 360 in our current range. If you are unable to find a specific colour in our current range, it may be a historical colour.

Aalto historical colours are still available for purchase - simply email or visit your nearest store to order. We recommend purchasing a testpot of colour before purchasing your paint as due to improved paints and tinters, the colour may have shifted over the years. Unfortunately we are unable to provide brushout colour samples for any historical colours.

We can also colour match other colours in store, and create bespoke paint colours - just bring in a sample of what you're after, or chat to one of our staff to discuss your requirements.
