Sanderson Explainer

First founded in 1860, Sanderson has been a key player in the world of interior design and is a world-renowned brand for their luxurious bold shades of premium paint.

Bringing gorgeous and robust shades to life, while specialising in durability and excellent quality paint, Sanderson is a company that has withstood the test of time and has been recognized by the Royal Family, having received a Royal Warrant in 1924.

Sanderson paints are blended with a higher ratio of solid pigments than liquids and additives, resulting in an incredibly deep and vivid colour payoff. Due to the richness of the paints, fewer coats are needed for full coverage compared to other paint brands. With a gorgeous smooth and quick drying formula, Sanderson paint application is easy and efficient.

Specific finishes like the Water Based Eggshell finish include additives in the blend for condensation and yellowing resistance, making them specialised paints for rooms such as kitchens, bathrooms and conservatories. Luxury Paints is dedicated to bringing only the very best luxury paint manufacturers onboard, and we believe Sanderson is ideal for any project.
