Price Baskets

Insight iPaint30 Retail Price Basket

Since the beginning of 2014, Insight DIY has been tracking on a daily basis, the retail prices of 30 of the best selling paint and paint accessory products across the UK retailers B&Q, B&M Bargains, Homebase, The Range, Wickes and Wilko. The basket has been carefully selected to include all of the products that a consumer may purchase when deciding to re-decorate an average sized living room.

The basket of products is then compared on the same day across each of the named retailers, ensuring that we have an exact specification match. In many cases the lines are identical i.e. same brand, barcode etc. and for the remaining lines, we ensure we have a direct match of both specification and quality.

The total numbers at the bottom of the page are the add-up of the basket of 30 lines, if a consumer walked into those retailers on the date specified and purchased one of each of every product in the full basket. 

To the left you can download a data extract of the iPaint30 basket completed on 10th December 2019.

To subscribe, the cost is £50/month, simply click here, enter your details, tick 'Price Baskets' and we'll come back to you to set up payment.




Thank you for the excellent presentation that you gave at Woodbury Park on Thursday morning. It was very interesting and thought-provoking for our Retail members. The feedback has been excellent.
