From 2018- 2022, we have been recognized as the Burlington Post Reader's Choice winner for Best Paint Store. So, if you are tired of the lack of service at the big boxes and hate paying way too much for the competition, why not stop in & see what Standard Paint & Wallpaper is all about.

Our Story

Our Story

Standard Paint & Wallpaper traces it's roots back to 1906 when it began as the Standard Paint Company of Canada, located in Hamilton, ON. As the years went by, a split between the paint manufacturing side and the paint sales division occurred. The paint sales division became Standard Paint & Wallpaper.

In 1962, a young, ambitious painter by the name of Doug Newton purchased the store & expanded it into a retail/ wholesale paint store. Aiming to meet the needs of both the professional painter and the do-it-yourselfer, Standard Paint & Wallpaper acquired the reputation as THE PAINT STORE in Hamilton.

Expansion into Burlington occurred in the mid-1980s and the sterling reputation for service & quality that Standard Paint & Wallpaper grew in Hamilton became the norm in Burlington. In 1991, Standard Paint & Wallpaper moved into it's previous location at 2279 Fairview Street in Burlington. This showroom was both Burlington's largest independent paint/ wallpaper store as well as the home of the oldest independent paint store in the Golden Horseshoe.

In 2011, the Newton family sold Standard Paint & Wallpaper to Ken Looker, who had been an employee at the store since 1998. With a commitment to maintaining the store's reputation for service & quality that dated back to 1962, the goal was to honour the legacy while moving forward with 21st century modernization of the business.

In December of 2021, we moved to our current location at 3245 Harvester Road #8 Burlington, ON. This new location allowed us to develop a designated "wallpaper room" while also providing us with a warehouse & workshop to expand our contracting services, offered under the Deck Deck Goose banner.

Standard Paint & Wallpaper is a locally owned, independent business and we pride ourselves on that. We aim to develop relationships with our customers and take a great deal of pride in our ability to deliver friendly, knowledgeable customer service. Spend just five minutes in the store and you will feel the difference that our commitment to service & quality products will make in your shopping experience.

So, the next time that you decide that you need to freshen up the dining room or turn your grown up child's old bedroom into an office, drop by the store & pay us a visit. You will be glad that you did.
