Dulux Trade has partnered with painting contractor Lucas to provide a colour-matching app for decorators and specifiers.
The service, which is initially being trialled in London, allows users to scan walls with the device and instantly order matching paint from a Dulux Decorator Centre, which will then be delivered within four hours .
Complementary palette options will help users create and refine colour options in the early stages of projects. Within the app is a section called ‘work request’ where users can take multiple scans, add job notes, take pictures of the space, add time frames and submit to the contractor.
Danny Lucas, Executive Chairman of Lucas, says: “A decade ago, a paint matching machine came in a briefcase and cost nearly £10,000, now it comes pocket-sized. This has allowed us to develop a completely new approach to assessing the works, identifying the correct paints and automatically making an online work request.”
