Valspar Colour Matching

Unlike any other paint brand, Valspar can scan and match any colour the human eye can see using its state-of-the art technology, making over 2.2 million different paint shades available in B&Q stores in minutes.

Valspar instantly generates a unique colour formula that can be blended into any interior or exterior paint product to a 99-100% level of accuracy.

So whether you’re decorating your walls and ceilings, wood and metal trim, or even your kitchen and bathroom, with Valspar’s unlimited range of colours you can create a truly personalised palette for every room in your home.

We’ll even save your unique colour formulas on our system so you can come back to any B&Q store for more when you need it.

Once you’re set on your colour, choose the paint product you’d like to have it mixed into. This can be paint for walls, ceilings, wood, metal, kitchens and bathrooms, and even exterior masonry or wood and metal.

More about Valspar

There's a range of complementary Valspar products available to help kickstart your decorating project.

* Information on the Valspar Colour Matching service - we can match any item we can scan, if we can’t scan it then we can’t match it. i.e. we can’t scan anything that’s shiny, doesn’t provide a solid enough colour to match or is smaller than 1 inch sq. How it works - the versatile non-contact spectrophotometer allows for paint colour matching on just about any customer sample, even patterned, textured, large, or bulky items. With switchable aperture size of 6mm and 12mm, the MatchRite iVue offers the smallest measurement size in colour matching.
