Our matches are created to match the branded colour charts. Please check the chart prior to ordering to make sure that you're happy with the colour you will recieve. To check the matches once recieved simply dry your colour onto the chart. This should dry down to within a 10% variance of the colour on the chart.

If you are ordering the same colour again please reference the machine number from your current label in the text box along with the colour name or code. Eg. 'Blue Dream Machine 2'

Colour Match by DCO is our expert paint mixing / tinting service which gives customers access to over 16,000 paint colours including most major brands.

Mixed into trade quality paint which provides improved consistency and coverage, customers can benefit from a wide range of finishes bringing the colour of your choice to your walls and woodwork.

Colour Match paint is mixed to order on our in-house tinting machines, using formulas that are tested in lab conditions and matched to colour charts for consistency, providing confidence and peace of mind your colour will be just right.

To order, simply follow the steps above and your paint will be mixed to order. All our colour match products are available for next day delivery when ordered before 1pm!

Important information

  • Leyland Hardwearing Matt is only available in pale pastel shades. For any darker colours please choose the Acrylic Durable Matt.
  • 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.
  • Numbered Dulux shades are copyrighted and therefore we are unable to match them.
  • We cannot match to Pantone, HEX or RGB colours, Rust-Oleum shades, Frenchic, Sherwin Williams, Cuprunol or Behr.
  • 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.
