Valspar

Any colour, no compromise

For over 200 years, Valspar's innovative paints and coatings have been bringing the world to life with colour. From Lindbergh's Spirit of St Louis, to a Yamaha grand piano; from the green that defines John Deere to Coca-Cola red, the Valspar® brand has been built upon colour.

When you want to bring colour into your world, Valspar are there to deliver quality.

An American company, Valspar products are trusted for their durability and performance - and their extensive range ensures that, whatever your project, there's a colour coating to match.

Colour Matching

Colour is crucial to making you feel at home. Reflecting your personality, creating a mood and bringing out the best in the furniture, art or decor that you love - the right colour can make all the difference. So why let somebody else choose the colour for you? We know that choosing your colour is the start of every project, so we want you to be free to let your imagination inspire you. That's why we're introducing Valspar® Colour Matching to B&Q stores across the country.

Valspar uses incredible colour matching technology to create paint in any colour that the eye can see - that's an amazing 2.2 million colours. From wallpaper to fabric, your favourite flowers to your children's toys, if you can bring in a sample, our team will match the colour.

Bring it and we'll match it

Whether you are redecorating a whole room, want to take some colour outdoors or want to add a unique, personal colour to a kitchen or bathroom, with Valspar, we can match the colour and create the paint you need.

  1. Find a sample of the colour you would like matched. This could be anything from a piece of fabric, wallpaper, your favourite item of clothing, or household accessories. Just make sure the item is a solid colour and avoid anything really shiny. As long as the surface area is 0.5cm in diameter, we can match it. We have even matched flakes of paint and small round sweets.
  2. Find your nearest B&Q Store offering the Valspar colour matching service and bring in your colour sample. We will scan your colour, creating a bespoke recipe just for you. To view the range of paint types available, see the products tab
  3. Choose the paint product you would like your colour mixed into.
  4. We will create a customer file with your details so you can name and store your colour and you can always come back for more.
