Color matching monitor and print

So I had my first photos printed. The very first impresssion was, that color is different than on the monitor. It wasn't that strong between tablet and PC monitor.

I'm familiar with theory -> looking for practical guidance. I just would like to know the first steps on having my prints come out as I see them on my monitor. It's all basic off-the-shelf the next best monitor from a local computer store and a print from the next door photo service.

One big point on watching the colors of the print is of course my ambient light, some warme-white LEDs.

I want to improve (e.g. have monitor and print matching) step-by-step until I'm satisfied or don't want to invest the required time/money.

Regards, Felix
