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've introduced 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.
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.
Creating your personalised colour is free and we can keep it on file until you are ready to start your project. We also offer tester pots at £3 so you can try out a series of colours to try the look you want.
Find a sample of the colour you would like matched. This could be anything from a piece of fabric or wallpaper, your favourite item of clothing, or home accessories that you'd like to co-ordinate your paint with.
The Valspar colour matching team can match a colour from most samples. 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.
When you've found your colour and selected a sample, bring it into any B&Q store which offers Valspar colour mixing.
Once you've chosen your colour, all you need to do is choose the right paint product for your project. Your unique colour-matched colour can be mixed into any high-quality paint products.
