Dulux Trade launches a new version of its Commercial Colour Schemer Tool

Dulux Trade has upgraded its Colour Schemer tool to make exploring colours and visualising schemes in commercial environments even easier and more effective.

The Dulux Trade Colour Schemer is an online tool designed to allow customers to create professional branded moodboards, all in a few clicks.

Tailored to individual sectors - from education to healthcare - it enables users to review and adapt a range of colour schemes created by colour experts at Dulux Trade.

Schemes are created around a chosen start colour, such as flooring or furnishings already in place, or simply a preferred wall colour. The software then renders a colour scheme within the selected image and the start colour or co-ordinating shades can be swapped in and out, or viewed in different images, until the desired outcome is achieved.

It is straightforward to design a selection of coordinated spaces for a project in one session as the tool offers a variety of room types for each sector.

The resulting moodboards can be saved and shared as PDFs or accurately colour printed by Dulux Trade and delivered to site, allowing designs to be shared with clients, colleagues or building users for evaluation and sign off.

Once a colour scheme has been perfected and approved, it can be executed with confidence in the end result.

The new and improved tool now includes sub-sectors, a wider selection of photography, pre-coloured mood boards and the ability to toggle between different colours in the mood board.

Paul Fleming, marketing manager contractor specifier at Dulux Trade, said: "Colour is an essential element of any space and we want to enable our customers to use colour more easily and effectively.

"The colour schemer allows users to draw on the expertise of Dulux Trade to build designs that create the desired outcome for a space and its occupants, whatever the sector or scale."

Paul adds: "The colour schemer is already in regular use by commercial customers across the country, and with the added flexibility and choice introduced with this upgrade, it will prove an even more effective tool for creating tailored colour designs to meet our customer needs."

Dulux Trade is committed to enabling the use of colour and the upgrade comes shortly after the manufacturer launched a must-have tool to allow professionals to match the colour of multiple surfaces to the nearest shade of Dulux Trade paint. The bespoke Dulux Trade Colour Sensor has been uniquely adapted for Dulux Trade to give far greater accuracy than other similar colour scanners.

The brand has also invested in enhancements to in-store colour scanning and mixing to help professionals to execute their final designs accurately, with new technology being rolled out in stores by the end of 2019.
