Colour Matching in Interiors 🎨
At Plank Hardware, we understand that many of you aspire to transform your homes into awe-inspiring spaces, like a screenshot pulled straight out of Architectural Digest. Of course, as with most things — it’s not always as easy as it looks.
The Science of Colour 🧪
Lack of scientific knowledge shouldn’t stand in the way of creating the most beautiful living space for your needs. Colour matching can be daunting, especially for those of us who don’t have a natural eye or necessarily know what mood or vibe we want our rooms to portray.
In reality, any room’s transformation requires a little artistic ingenuity and a substantial dose of scientific know-how— which is where our handy, interactive colour matching tool comes in. Our free tool was created to empower people to successfully make their own interior colour choices, without the need for an expensive third party. Plus, the satisfaction of knowing you’ve been your own project manager and creative lead is unbeatable.
What To Consider When Using Our Colour Match Tool
How To Use Our Colour Matching Tool
We've designed our colour matching tool based on the four shades featured in our new Colour Pop Drop hardware collection.
To get started, simply select the colour you’re initially drawn to for your personal taste and the space you require it for, then you will be led to a selection of complementary colours for you to consider. Not only will you get a good idea about the colours that work together, but you’ll get the colour hex codes so you can get the exact ones you like from the paint shop 🎨
These complementary colour palettes include monochromatic, analogous, complementary, split-complementary, neutrals, triadic and tetradic, all based on the art and science behind the colour wheel theory. Definitions of these colour schemes can be found below ⬇️

Colour Matching in Your Home 🏡
Whether your personal style is moody and monochromatic, or energetic and colourful, a lick of expertly selected paint (as identified using our tool) and the addition of colourful hardware can be transformative, not only to your mood but to your relationship with the space too — which often isn’t given enough credit.
Our colourful collection consists of a palette of trending shades, curated by our in-house design experts; cobalt blue, sage green, lemon yellow and soft lilac — all of which have gained popularity within interiors in recent months.
