NCS+ App

Explore a world of colours

NCS+ is the brand new NCS app that helps you succeed with any colour design. NCS+ gives you inspiration, colour advice, colour trends, and the possibility to browse all 2050 NCS Standard colours. With NCS – Natural Colour System®©, developed by world-renowned colour experts, it has never been easier to find the right colour for your project.

Succeed with any colour design project

When starting a new project, most people use an existing setting as inspiration. But how do you go from colour inspiration to finding the colour that actually works for you? NCS+ is the smartphone app that helps you find, correct, store and share colours for any sort of interior or exterior colour design project. NCS+ enables you to find and store your colour palette online.


NCS+ has several functional and inspiring features such as exploring colour themes, combining colours and features for saving and sharing your favourite colours and palettes. You can also find colour details such as CMYK, RGB, LAB or lightness values.

Explore colour collections

In NCS+, you have access to all of the standardised NCS colours and can explore all of the NCS products, including Trend collections, the NCS Index, NCS Exterior and NCS Inspire. You can also find the 100 new Standard colours in NCS+.

Use the Navigator to find your colour

The new and improved NCS Navigator brings unparalleled ease of navigating in the NCS System, through the NCS Circle selecting the prefered hue and the NCS Triangle to select the correct nuance. You can fine-tune your selection by modifying the selected colour in either chromaticness, blackness or whiteness, giving you exactly the colour that you want.

Gain design inspiration

Save your favourite colours into mood boards, upload images or take photos of your project to provide additional context to the board. You can then share the boards with friends or colleagues to inspire and collaborate.
