Important information

  • Scrubbable paint finishes take around 1 week to fully cure and therefore scrubbing should be avoided for the first week. We also recommend using a soft material to wipe down the walls to avoid burnishing the surface.
  • Due to differences in computer monitors and colour swatches actual colours may have slight variance when mixed into paint. Colour Match products cannot be refunded or returned once mixed unless there is a product fault. If you are unsure about a colour, we provide an excellent testerpot service so you can test colours in situ before ordering in larger volumes. It is your own responsibility to ensure you have picked the correct colour.
  • Leyland Hardwearing Matt in anything other than a pastel shade is upgraded to the Johnstones Acrylic Durable Matt free of charge.
  • Numbered Dulux shades are copyrighted and therefore we are unable to match them.
  • We cannot match to Pantone or HEX colours.
  • In some cirumstances there may be other colour / finish combinations that cannnot be mixed, these are rare and we will contact you promptly to advise if there is a limitation preventing the colour / finish combination. In most cases we can provide a closest match which is within 10% variance to the original colour selected, or suggest an alternative suitable finish. We will only ever do this with your prior agreement.
