Masonry Paint Colours

Picking the right colour is one of the most important parts of any decorating project, but especially with a large project like painting an exterior masonry wall.

Masonry Paint Colour Charts

Most masonry paint manufacturers have colour charts that their paints come in as standard. Generally, these colour ranges are smaller than interior paint ranges due to the fact that people usually paint their exterior walls in neutral tones, such as white, grey or cream. Looking for a masonry paint colour that is just right for you? Here are some of the colour charts from the most popular masonry paint manufacturers in the UK:

Dulux Weathershield Colour Chart

Dulux Weathershield is the retail version of Dulux's masonry paint formulation. It is a rainproof masonry paint that comes with a 15-year guaranteed all-weather protection. While not as advanced as it's trade version, it offers good protection for a smaller budget.

It comes in 19 standard colours, ranging from black to pure brilliant white. Some of the most popular shades include classic cream, which is a common choice for a neutral masonry paint, to jasmine white, which is a fantastic choice if want a white shade with an added warmth.

Dulux Trade Weathershield Colour Chart

The trade version of Dulux Weathershield is a more advanced formulation that offers the same 15 year protection as the retail version, however in reality the durability is much higher.

The main difference between the two paints is the opacity, with Dulux Trade Weathershield comfortably coating an exterior wall in two coats. The colour will also last much longer without fading, as it has higher quality pigments than the retail Dulux Weathershield. This added quality does come at a higher cost.

Dulux Trade does not come in a range of standard colours, instead it can be mixed in any Dulux, RAL, British Standard or NCS colour, plus equivalents of other paint manufacturers colours.

Dulux Trade have a number of fantastic colour charts that a wide number of their paints can be mixed in, including the Weathershield 420 Fandeck. This colour chart includes a huge range of shades. Below we have included just a small part of the Weathershield 420 Fandeck that shows their white, red and grey shades. Ultimately, Dulux Trade Weathershield can be mixed in any colour, including colours from the other colour charts in this guide.

To order a custom mixed colour, simply visit the Dulux Trade Weathershield Smooth Masonry product page and either type in the name of the shade or search through our colour palettes and select the shade you would like.

Masonry Paint Colour Ideas

We all need a bit of inspiration from time to time to give us some ideas before starting a project. Here are some of our favourite examples of painted exterior walls:


Pink is an increasingly popular choice with modern home decor. It brings a beautifully light and calming look that can give a property a whole heap of kerb appeal. Pink is a surprisingly versatile colour that works on properties of all types, from new builds to traditional properties. They are the perfect shade for making your home stand out, while not going too bold.

White masonry paint has to be the most popular choice for homeowners at the moment, and for good reason. It is crisp, clean and can make any home look it's best. The worry with white is the fact that it can start to look tired if not cleaned regularly, although with a self-cleaning masonry paint like Emperor Masonry Paint, this is not a problem as it will remain looking pristine white for years.

Pale Beige

A colour combination we absolutely love is pale beige masonry with pale green exterior trim. The combination is perfect for older properties, bringing a heritage and subtlety to exterior walls that is quite simply beautiful! If you want to achieve this look, opt for a paint like Zinnser Allcoat Exterior mixed in pale grey to use on your UPVC window and door frame.

If you aren't a fan of white or grey and want to add character to a property, this is the perfect shade for you.
