Using colour

Let’s face it, there’s probably too many paint colours to choose from. That’s why in the Leyland Trade Colour Card we present to you a compact range of our tried and tested colours for both homes and businesses.


Here you will also find the BS4800 range, a collection of 100 paint colours for building purposes which are included within the British Standards framework BS 5252:1976. The framework specifies these selected colours as the source for all building colour standards. 


The colour swatches shown are an electronic representation of colours available and should be used as a guide only. Due to limitations in technology, the colour may vary depending on your screen resolution and settings. We strongly suggest that before you purchase your colour you check that you are happy with the actual colour as shown on the latest Leyland Trade Colour Card or by purchasing a tester pot. Ask your local Leyland stockist for details on tester pots.

Bespoke Colour Schemes 

There’s more to colours than appealing design, especially if your customer is a business. When you take on this type of job, you’ll find that there are a few legal requirements that have to be covered. When it comes to safety, the British Standards (BS) framework outlines how colours should be used in commercial decoration to promote a safer environment.  


Our colour experts know all there is to know about paints and how they work, so we thought that we’d put them to good use and help our customers out. Our dedicated, free-of-charge colour consultancy can answer any questions that you may have about your projects. 


Don’t hesitate to get in touch with any questions about…

  • Innovative colour designs 
  • Current paint legislation
  • Your current projects
