The Trouble with Paint

Do you have trouble selecting a paint color for the interior or exterior of your home?  You’re not alone!  I do dozens of paint color consultations every year.  Many of my clients just want help to make sure they select a color they can live with.  They don’t even need a painter, as they plan to paint their home themselves.  They just need HELP!  Of course, I’m happy to help anyone select a paint color – just give me a call.  However, if you want to do a little pre-consultation shopping, or you want to take a crack at making your own paint selection, here are some resources that may help you out.

Sherwin Williams has a Color Vizualizer on their site; this great tool allows you to select from 1500 colors, select a room or exterior photo, and see what the color looks like on that photo!  While this experience isn’t fool proof, due to computer monitor differences and the fact you aren’t viewing the color in your own home, it should get you started in the right direction.  See it here:  http://www.sherwin-williams.com/do_it_yourself/paint_colors/visualizer/.

Benjamin Moore takes this concept one step further by allowing you to upload your own digital photos, and paint your OWN room!  See the Personal Color Viewer here:  http://tinyurl.com/5jr35b.  Again, this isn’t  fool-proof process, but it can get you started in the right direction.

If you have a favorite color-selecting tool, please post it in the comments section – I’m always looking for fun new tools!  Have fun selecting your new paint color.  And, call me if you need me!  🙂
