Hello

I'm struggling to find the right colour using tester's and looking online and I can't find the colour using the colour chips at Wickes.

Does anyone know if all of the colour chips are available at the Dulux Decorator Centre's?

I know I can order five chips online but choosing the right one's isn't easy when there are that many available and the accuracy online can't be relied upon, I was hoping to buy a durable matt paint for the bedroom walls.

Thanks

Any place that mixes paint will have the colour cards (if that is what you mean). Some can scan a sample of a painted surface and try to reproduce the colour. Forget online for figuring out colour, if nothing else your monitor will not be calibrated for accurate colour reproduction.

Dulux, Crown, Johnstone's, B&Poo and independents who mix paints will have colour cards.

Thanks very much OchAye.

I'll visit the local Dulux Decorator Centre, you're right trying to match colour's online.

Collect some colour cards from there but don't buy your paint from there! My nearest DDC charges 12% more than my local Buildbase for exactly the same paint, and I have a "cash account discount" in both stores.

I'll do that, thanks Tom!

You can order a variety of Dulux Trade literature from their website. It's free and it usually arrived within a couple of days. Have a look at: https://www.duluxtradepaintexpert.co.uk/products/literature.

(Some of their literature is only available in downloadable pdfs but some can be order in hard copy versions.)
