A Guide to Tikkurila Furniture Paint

A coat of paint is a very stylish and cost-effective way to breathe new life into old or worn units. There is no need to purchase brand-new furniture if you fancy a change, just apply our furniture paint and offer units and wardrobes a second life.

This is great for when budgets are tight and you would like to tie your furniture into an updated decor if you have already chosen your wall paint.

This entire collection of paints is available tinted to any of the vast array of colours on offer. Currently, there are 2436 options. An answer for any need.

Tikkurila offers an array of premium paints to paint your furniture. Each with its own unique appeal.

Let's run through your options.


First, we have Empire. This is a semi-matt top coat that is made from a traditional alkyd eggshell and is ideal for wooden furniture. This paint is very easy to apply and leaves a brilliant finish, every time.


Then there is the eco-friendly Helmi range which comes in three finishes. It includes Helmi 10, Helmi 30, and Helmi 80. These paints are matt, semi-matt, and gloss sheen level respectively. Having this combination of sheen levels ensures no matter the project you have the paints you need.

The Helmi collection is incredibly versatile being suitable for a wide range of situations. This paint is also an excellent choice for a surface that may need to endure a more rigorous cleaning regimen. It is also quite scratch resistant.

It also has a very short drying time. You can a coat to be touch dry in around an hour. No waiting four hours before applying the second coat.


If you don't want a solid paint finish on your furniture and would rather still see the grains of the wood you can choose an interior lacquer. For this purpose we have Kiva. This paint is also available in matt, semi-matt, and gloss with Kiva 10, Kiva 30, and Kiva 70.

Kiva is available completely translucent or semi-translucent with a tint. For a list of the available tints see the wood stains and lacquers range in the colour directory. There are around 40 to choose from.
