How to create a range cooker in a truly unique colour and 10 other questions about Colourange

19TH JULY 2011
Colourange allows you to have your range cooker custom-finished in any colour you can dream of!


The desire to offer customers more colour choices led Britannia to create a unique colour-matching service for range cookers and cooker hoods. This colour-matching service is called Colourange. Colourange was launched at Grand Designs Live in London in 2006 and has been a sought-after service since. Here we explain how it works.

1. How do you create a range cooker in my own unique colour?
The process is simple. You let us know what colour you want. We create a swatch to match that colour. Once you have approved the swatch, we will custom-finish the cooker for you.

2. Do I need to have a colour reference to match?
You can send us anything of the colour that you would like us to match. It can be a colour reference card, a kitchen tile, your favourite Le Creuset pan, your Kitchenaid mixer or even a piece of fabric. If required, we will send your colour sample back to you!

3. Are you able to match the colour of anything?
Yes, we can match any colour. You only need to keep in mind that the finishing will be a solid colour with a glossy finish. If you send us a piece of fabric, then we match the colour of the fabric, but the finish will be shiny.

Send in a sample of your desired colour and Britannia will send you a swatch for approval.

4. How can I be sure I get the colour I want?
We will send you a swatch of the colour. We only create your custom-finished range cooker after you have approved the colour swatch.

5. What if I damage the door of my Colourange cooker in a few years time?
We keep an archive of all colours we have created, so we can always match it in the future.

6. How much does the Colourange service cost?
Please check with your local retailer for the price of Colourange.

7. Can any of your range cookers be finished in a custom colour?
Any of our Sigma, Dynasty and Classic range cookers can be custom-finished.

8. Can I have a cooker hood in a matching colour?
Yes, our Arioso and Latour cooker hoods can be coloured using the same process as for the range cookers.

9. What is the most popular colour for the colour-matching service?
Each and every Colourange cooker is unique. We have finished range cookers in any colour from subtle shades of grey to bright colours like yellow, red and orange.

10. How long does it take to get my cooker?
It usually takes a few weeks to send you a colour swatch. Once you have approved the colour it takes up to 6 weeks to create the range cooker. The whole process could take up to three months. If you are in a hurry, give us a call on 0800 073 1003 and we can see what we can do.

11. Do I buy a Colourange range cooker directly from Britannia?
We do not sell direct. You can buy your Colourange cooker and hood from any of our retailers, but we’ll help you with the process. Don’t hesitate to call if you have any other questions about Colourange!
