The Best Paint Brands For Your Home’s Interior

It’s time to give the walls that protect you from the scary outside world the attention they deserve. While Choose Your Lines Carefully. A Guide to Designing Your Walls has some brilliant creative ideas, let’s talk about a technical aspect of the painting process.

We know most of you are thinking, “Let’s just go for a cheap house paint even if it is lower in quality since the interior is protected from external weather conditions.”

Don’t. Do. That.

Many customers have expressed regret as cheaper quality paint simply does not produce the results you would want for this sacred space in your home. The other thing is that the money doesn’t add up either – you’ll end up spending more to buy more buckets of paint for more layers of coating.  Your interior designer or house renovation contractor might have some ideas for you but here are some of the painter preferred brands, as recommended by painting contractors on Kaodim.

A painter recently revealed to us, “Dulux is our most reliable brand. In fact, some decorators we know refuse to use any other house paint!”

Dulux is a household name in Malaysia but it’s actually from Amsterdam, Netherlands.  Dulux paint is manufactured by AkzoNobel. AkzoNobel is a leading global paints and coatings company and a major producer of speciality chemicals. They have operations in more than 80 countries around the world.


Nippon Paint

Probably one of the most well-known brand names in the country, Nippon Paint claims that it is currently “Malaysia’s No. 1 Total Coating Solutions provider” since 2008.  It’s got a Japanese name but not many know that it’s actually a homegrown Malaysian brand which will make any Malaysian (painter or not) proud. It now operates in Pakistan, Bangladesh, Philippines and Thailand.  Since they started in Malaysia in the 1960s Nippon is gaining traction as a leader in paint for Malaysia.

We’ve met many painting professionals who insist on sticking to trade paints. Crown Trade, a brand widely used by contractors, painters, designers and builders came highly recommended. In fact, one contractor even made the bold claim, “We’ve never had any problems with them!”
