Dulux MixLab helps you find your perfect colour match

Whether it’s in the house, on the house or in the garden, our Dulux Mixlab will make you the perfect paint.

Browse our in store colour wall, which has been split into warm, cool and neutral to help you choose the right colour. Scan colours horizontally to discover harmonising colour schemes or vertically to explore different tones of the same colour. You can also see how these colours or your own colours look under different types of light.

If you have a colourful item in your home that you love, then use the in-store scanner to find the nearest matching Dulux MixLab colour.
