Top 10 Best Paint Sprayers in the UK 2021 (Wagner, Bosch and More)

If you fancy yourself as a bit of a DIY expert, or even just handy around the house, then you’ll know having the right tools for the job is essential. While a good old paintbrush has never let anybody down, it isn’t exactly the most efficient, so you might want to consider a paint sprayer for larger jobs.

 
Not only are they faster and easier to use, but sprayers will create a more even coat, resulting in a better finish. But which is the best paint sprayer to buy? To help you out, we’ve included a straightforward guide to airless and HVLP sprayers, along with our ranking of the top 10 in the UK from Black+Decker, Wagner, Bosch and more!

How to Choose a Paint Sprayer in the UK – Buying Guide

Before diving straight into the top 10, let’s take a quick look at the various options available to us when purchasing a spray painter. Here, we’ll look at the different models, how they’re powered, nozzle options and how much paint you can expect them to hold. 

Airless or HVLP: Choose the Right Paint Sprayer for the Job

First and foremost, you'll need to decide what sort of paint sprayer you should opt for. You will generally have two options to choose from – airless sprayers or HVLP. Now, there are pneumatic sprayers as well, but as these will require you to own an air compressor, we won't be including them this time.

 
Airless paint sprayers pump out paint at extremely high pressure, fanning droplets to create a perfectly even coat. They’re good for painting exterior surfaces, such as fences and decks, as well as interiors like ceilings and walls. They can also handle thicker paint better than HVLP sprayers. However, they tend to be more expensive and might be a bit too professional for casual DIY.

 
The most common household spray painter is the HVLP (high volume, low pressure). These carry paint in a steady, large volume of air, and although it travels slightly slower, this facilitates a smoother paint surface. Unfortunately, they don’t handle all types of paint as well as airless sprayers, so you’ll still have to lacquer or varnish by hand.  

Mains Powered Paint Sprayers Are More Reliable Than Cordless

Mains Powered Paint Sprayers Are More Reliable Than Cordless

While they look like complete units, the truth is, your paint sprayers won't get very far without some power. More often than not, they'll need to be plugged into the mains. So, you’ll need to consider the length of the cord if you’re planning on painting outside and whether you'll need a plug extension. 


Cordless paint sprayers aren't as common, but can be found online. These have rechargeable batteries, much like how other modern power tools work. That said, they could run out of battery at any moment, leaving your work unfinished. So the main thing to check when purchasing a cordless option is the charging time and battery life

Consider How Many Different Nozzles You’ll Need

The nozzle directly affects the thickness of the paint and the spray pattern. Generally, most paint sprayers will have at least two different nozzle settings, which can be very useful depending on what you're painting. For instance, if you’re painting interior walls, thinner paint is preferable due to the faster drying time. 


Some paint sprayers come with up to 3 different nozzles. So, it’s worth thinking about whether additional nozzles will be beneficial to you or not. If you’re buying for a particular job, then you may not need many options, whereas those adding to their arsenal of painting and decorating tools may require it for various jobs over the years. 

The More Paint It Carriers the Merrier

Finally, you’ll want to think about the amount of paint the sprayer can hold. Without sounding too obvious, the more, the merrier, as this will save you from constantly needing to refill the tank, which should speed up the process of painting.


Generally speaking, HVLP sprayers have a capacity between 800 ml to 1.2 L, which is more than enough to see you through a few fence panels or interior walls. However, when it comes to airless options, these can hold as much as 3 litres, potentially allowing you to work all day. The downside to a large tank is they’re not nearly as portable, so there will be a trade-off.
