About Us

'From our family store to your family home'

Colour Supplies

Colour Supplies is an established family business that started off as 'Housemakers', a decorating store in the market town of Whitchurch, Shropshire. That was over 50 years ago, and now we have massively expanded our range and have three Home & Garden Department Stores and a Tile & Bathroom Centre, with the same family still at the helm and actively involved at every level of the business.

Our fabulous staff have a wealth of knowledge on the products they sell in store, with some having been with us for many years.

Both our online venture and stores are operated under the same principles, offering an extensive range of branded products at value for money prices; with our team of staff available in store and via a telephone call or e-mail if you want help choosing a product or if you need after sales service.


We expanded some years ago to sell a comprehensive range of popular products online from a number of our in-store departments. Currently we have over 5,600 products listed, ranging from kitchenware to garden machinery, with bigger items being dispatched direct from our suppliers. We are still expanding our online offering.

We are also a Feefo Platinum Service Award Winner for our e-commerce operation, offering outstanding Customer Service to our online customers.

By buying from us online we can offer you value for money prices with the convenience of internet shopping, but if you do want any advice we can give you the benefit of our experience too.


We are often asked how we can compete against the buying power of the national chain stores. Well, we buy in bulk, often directly from the manufacturers, and pass these cost savings on to our customers. Our long-term relationships with major manufacturers and suppliers both overseas and in the UK ensure we can take advantage of special discounts or promotions they offer and these cost savings are passed directly to our customers. 

We do not have the expenses and overheads of large national stores and are true negotiators when it comes to business dealings. As an independently owned enterprise we therefore have the ability to compete against the better-known retail stores, and are able to pass these cost savings on to you, rather than to a Board of Directors or into the pockets of institutional investors.
