Tinting & Matching Service



Bring in a sample of your favourite colour and we’ll instantly generate a unique colour formula that can be mixed into any interior or exterior paint.

Our unlimited range of colours means that you can create a truly personalised palette for every room in your home or business.

How it works

1. Bring a sample of the colour

Our colour matching team will scan the sample and create your custom colour recipe. So that we can accurately scan and match the colour, your sample should be:

  • - At least the size of a 50p coin.
  • - Clean and dry (we are unable to scan wet surfaces).
  • - A solid colour.
Please note that we can't match a colour from phone or tablet screens.

2. Mixing your bespoke paint colour

Once we’ve matched your sample and have the colour recipe, you need to choose the type of paint you need. We can create custom colours for the majority of our paints. Whatever you’re painting, we have a comprehensive range of finishes available to make sure you get the best results. The in-store teams can help you choose the right product for your project. We then mix the colour formula into your tin of paint for you to take home. To make sure you really love your custom colour, we recommend you try a tester pot first. We will also provide details of the paint formulation, allowing you to purchase further quantities of your bespoke colour.

Our Dulux, Crown, Little Greene, Paint & Paper Library and Farrow & Ball paint tinting machines hold recipes for every colour that those manufacturers have ever done. If you have previously used a colour that is no longer shown in colour card lets us know the complete colour name and we will be able to pull up the appropriate recipe.
