A quick and easy guide to refreshing your walls
How to refresh your walls at a price that makes you feel good
If you’ve painted walls, trims or furniture before, you’ll most likely know the foundations of a good kit. A decent set of brushes, rolls of masking tape, dust sheets that will witness every makeover high and decorating low. New to painting? We can help you master it like a pro.
Tools and experience aside, refreshing your walls might feel like a tough job; like it’s all a bit of an effort and, perhaps even, a little costly. But, we’re here to help make that change you need easier – and at a price that makes you feel good about your project before you’ve even opened a paint tin. From delivery on more than 30,000 products to over 300 stores to pick up last-minute essentials, we want to be ready for you whenever those life-changing moments or unpredictable events happen.
Decisions made easier
Here at B&Q, we understand the importance of getting that colour just right. Whether you’re struggling to make up your mind, wanting to coordinate with existing interiors or desperately trying to convince your other half, shop hundreds of paint samples online and in store to try at home. If you don’t fancy leaving the comfort of your sofa, Valspar’s colour chips can be sent straight to your door. Choose from 2,000 colours and wait for your new kitchen, office or bathroom shade to arrive in the post.
Imagine your colour at home
Perhaps you want to skip the tester pots or simply imagine what your chosen colour might look like at home. From barely there neutrals for a minimal living room or darker tones for a dramatic hallway, our visualiser tool lets you picture different paint shades in the room of your choice.
Not too much, not too little
Worried about waste? Maths not your strong point? Our calculator helps you work out the right amount of paint required for your project. All you need is the dimensions of your walls and the dimensions of the areas in the room you don’t want to paint. Also, we recommend purchasing an extra 10% for future touch-ups, unfortunate spillages and errors that signal a tea break. But don’t worry, our calculator works this out for you too. Just decide on how many coats of paint you want, and you’re ready to purchase. Easy.
Old walls, new look
We've whittled down some of our top value essentials to get your refresh started. Ready, set, change.
Mix your dream shade
Whatever you’re changing, our paint mixing service makes it easy to match your perfect shade. Simply pick from our colour cards online or in store, or our team can use a tool to match any reference you bring into us. Just make sure it’s bigger than a 50p coin and isn’t shiny. With a choice of 2.2 million colours, you’ll find a shade that brings your interiors to life (or just makes you smile a lot).
Ready when you are
Waking up and deciding today’s the day you decorate. Wishing you had an extra roller while applying the first coat.
