Paint Colour Matching

paint colour matching

Here at Victory Colours HQ we know the importance of colour and how important it is to get the right paints for your home, which is why we offer a paint colour matching service. 

Although we offer a beautiful palette of paint colours for your home, we strive to create the best experience in colour for our customers so we won't be offended if you would like something different. 

Whether it's an image you have seen in a home design magazine or a colour scheme idea you’ve fallen in love with on Instagram, the colour spectrum is practically limitless, as are the combinations of colours. Therefore, if you can give us a paint colour reference, or a sample for matching, we will do our very best to match it for you.

How long does the paint colour matching take?

Our paint colour matching service will take a couple of extra days from receipt of the order. However, we will endeavour to freshly mix your beautiful, matched paint within 1-3 working days at no extra cost than our regular colours.

Our Colour Matches are excellent, however, there may be some tolerance perceived if you are matching to existing paint, due to differences in finish, light reflection, and many other factors.

How does the Colour Matching Process Work?

The colour matching process works in one of two ways.  Either, we work from a physical sample, which could be a colour card, a tile, piece of fabric or wallpaper (we have even matched to a sweet wrapper before – it is literally any colour you like the fancy of), or maybe chip of paint from a wall, the sample only needs to be a couple of centimetres in size.  We then use our spectrophotometer to ascertain the colour values and then use that as a basis to reproduce the colour match.

Or, if we don’t have a physical sample we can obtain theoretical spectral data such as Hex, RGB, or LAB and use the colour that presents to match to the converted LAB values.  We have a database of over 20,000 shades to give us a start point.  It must be pointed out though that an image from a screen may vary from monitor to monitor, so a physical sample is usually preferable.

If both these methods fail, we revert to the Mark 1 Eyeball method, and good judgement and work to produce the best colour ☺

Why use our colour matching service?

Although we have a fantastic range of paint colours, it is possible that you may find a larger range of colours elsewhere. However, with these larger paint brands you will not necessarily reap the same benefits or achieve the same results as you would with Victory Colours paints.

Victory Colours is an independent, family run business that was created to help reduce the environmental impact of paint. Here are just some of the benefits of our specially formulated paint:

  • Toxic free
  • Low VOC
  • Ultra low odour
  • Vegan/ cruelty free
  • Excellent quality and opacity 
  • Easy to apply 
  • Durable and washable
