Dulux Trade Launch a Newly Updated App

One app. Multiple Solutions



Dulux Trade has launched a newly updated app designed to help ensure the day-to-day lives of decorators run smoothly.


The Dulux Trade Expert app provides multiple solutions to equip hardworking professionals with a host of indispensable features in one place – including integration with the Dulux Trade Colour Sensor.


New features include a quick paint volume calculator, which determines an estimate of how much of a specific paint is required quickly and easily to save valuable time and money.


Project folders will also enable users to save information on a project – such as product details and client colour choices – in one easy-to-access area.


Available for both iOS and Android devices, the Dulux Trade Expert app replaces the existing Dulux Trade Paint Expert app.


The app continues to offer invaluable tools such as Dulux Visualiser technology to show clients exactly how colours will look on their project, with more colour collections available, as well as access to important information on stockists and product availability.


It also links seamlessly to the Dulux Trade Colour Sensor, which previously used a separate app, meaning decorators with the sensor can colour match on the job, check which products can be mixed in the colour, and visualise the colour of a project for a client all in the same place.


The Dulux Trade Colour Sensor is a pocket-sized colour matching tool that gives professionals and their clients an accurate colour match in seconds on the job.


It works by scanning the colour of an object and providing the closest colour match from the Dulux Trade collections, allowing decorators to demonstrate their professionalism and expertise by finding the colour of an existing wall, or creating a scheme for a client based on an object they love.


Dulux Trade Marketing Manager Becky Orton said: “We’re always looking for new ways to make day-to-day life easier for professional painters and decorators.


“So, we’re delighted that decorators will now have access to this updated app, which is designed to provide the answers they need at their fingertips, especially for those more specialist jobs.


“The past year has been extremely challenging for painters and decorators and, with restrictions lifting, we expect them to be entering a particularly busy period.


“We believe the app will be especially useful for busy tradespeople over the coming months.”


Current Dulux Trade Colour Sensor app users need to download the Dulux Trade Expert app to continue using the sensor.

WRX Eggshell Review – Written by a Decorator

Professional decorator Mike Gregory jots down a full and honest WRX Eggshell review. How does it shape up against its rivals?

Brilliant!!! Colour sensors have only been around for a couple of years and Dulux were one of the very first manufacturers to be able to offer the technology to their clients. Now anyone, from decorators to designers can scan colours quickly and easily whilst on site. This helps us offer a better service to our clients.

However, Dulux seem to want to stay on ahead of the pack. Not contempt with the revolutionary device, they’re constantly looking to improve and make the product better and easier to use. We can’t wait to see the feedback about the new app.
