The total quantity of NCS Standard colours in the NCS colour collections is 2050.

NCS publish the 2050 Standard colours in a variety of formats. Most products contain the complete collection of 2050 colours but some have smaller, specific colour ranges.

The smaller colour collections are used for designing specific products, Exterior, for example, is for colouration of exterior materials such as bricks, concrete and paving. WS 160 is ideal when only low chromatic colours (whites, greys) rather than saturated colours are required.

The Inspire is a great tool when you’re starting a colour scheme from scratch and need inspiration. It contains popular colours used by architects and designers divided into themes which makes it easy to navigate.

Bespoke colours can be created by NCS if a shade or nuance in between the standard set of colours is required.
