A Guide to Tikkurila's Kitchen Paint

The kitchen is the heart of any home.

From quickly putting together a meal on a weekday night after work to hosting friends for a dinner party and pulling out all the stops. The kitchen goes through a lot!

This is why it's important to carefully choose a wall paint that can keep up with the challenges that a busy kitchen faces. Everyday cooking stains, steam, and grease can all end up on your walls.

A typical matt emulsion just won't cut it. You need paint that has a resistance to moisture and can be scrubbed or wiped clean if accidentally splashed while cooking. This consideration extends to ceilings too with steam rising, an extractor fan can only do so much.

This is where our premium Nordic paints come in. With equal measures of durability and style, these paints are the answer to kitchen walls that can endure the typical challenges of a kitchen.


A key collection we have for painting a kitchen is Luja. Available in three finishes with matt, semi-matt, and semi-gloss paints. This is broken down with Luja 7, 20, and 40 with the number getting higher as the paint becomes glossier.

There is no shortage of reasons why Luja is a good choice for use in a kitchen. Firstly it is extremely durable and has resistance to dirt. Scrubbing it on a regular basis will not damage the finish. Being washable is an important factor in an area as busy as a kitchen.

Luja also features resistance to moisture and anti-mould properties. Important features for the only other room aside from your bathroom which will have running water or steam.


If you are not as concerned about condensation you also have the choice of our Optiva range when painting your kitchen. This collection is also more budget-friendly. 

This includes Optiva 3, 5, 7, and 20. These paints range from full matt to semi-matt emulsion. Tikkurila has also created a more eco-friendly line-up in the Optiva collection with the Optiva Nature paints which are available as matt or satin matt.

This collection is still a very durable paint with a smooth finish that will stand up very well to a robust cleaning regimen.


Our Helmi collection is great for painting cabinets. Loved for its easy application, resistance to scrubbing, and low VOCs thanks to being water-based. All of these features make this paint a popular choice for anyone looking to give their kitchen units a fresh appeal.

It comes in a choice of finishes from matt, semi-matt, and gloss which enables you to create the perfect appearance for your kitchen.

This collection is that popular you will see it featured heavily across our furniture paint range.
