Tikkurila is a leading paint manufacture from Finland, who are increasingly growing in popularity across the UK. They are well known for their wide range of high-quality coatings including paints for interior and exterior woodwork, walls, masonry and many more.

One of the most well-known and widely used Tikkurila product is the Tikkurila Helmi Furniture Paint. The water based formula has unbeatable durability, with excellent resistance to abrasion, knocks, and scratches. Can be easily cleaned, with good scrub resistance.

At Holman Specialist Paints, you can choose the Tikkurila Furniture Paint to be tinted to an unlimited range of colours. Furthermore, the non-yellowing formula will ensure your paint coating will stay fresh and bright over time.

One of our most recent customers, Lindsay of Creative Chic who specialises in kitchen re-spray finishes, has this to say about her first experience using the Tikkurila furniture paint:

“As a professional kitchen sprayer and refurbisher, I have tried many different products, paint systems and methods.

I have used everything from Farrow and Ball to Acid Catalysed finishes and recently tried the Tikkurila Furniture Paint products from Holman Specialist Paints. I am so impressed, that I will use this system from now on!

The 30% sheen finish (from the Tikkurila Helmi 30), is flawless and tough and durable enough to withstand the daily workings of a kitchen.

When dealing with Holman Specialist Paints, they are a very helpful company and delivery is very quick and efficient too. Can’t recommend enough. A special thanks to their sales team too, who are always on hand for their technical advice!”
Lindsay, Creative Chic

Lindsay has recently completed this great kitchen re-spray and refurbishment using the Tikkurila Helmi Furniture Paint System. The kitchen has been completely transformed as the tired, dated cabinetry now looks like a sleek and modern interior space.
