Every household should have a varied set of paint brushes. From fences to furniture, the right paint brush can help give a quality finish to any decorating job. Our range of brushes makes applying paint easier and gets the job done quicker, with maximum coverage, secure bristles and easy grip.
The paint brush you need depends on the job at hand. For fiddly areas like skirting boards and window frames, go for something between one to two inches. For bigger jobs, like ‘cutting in’ the edges of walls before rolling, three inches is the perfect size. Smaller brushes are the most versatile and can be used for plenty of DIY tasks around the home.
Specialist brushes cater to all kinds of painting - we have specific paint brushes for applying stains or treatments to wooden fences and sheds and our angled brushes are perfect for cutting into tricky edges.
