What Color to Paint? - Free Color Tool!

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker

I came across a really neat color tool at my local hardware store. It's from Valspar. They have these nifty overlays with different rooms and different exterior shots that you can overlay on the color samples you select.

What's great about this as opposed to the online tools is you get to see the actual color sample instead of a screen version of the colors. This is a great way to help clients visualize the paint in a room or on the exterior of their home.

They had 4 different exterior house overlays and numerous interior room overlays. The photo here is just one of the room overlays available.

What a fun and convenient color tool!

Thanks for the info Kelly.  We're thinking about painting our living room, but haven't been able to decide on a color.  Maybe this Valspar tool will help.

Hi Kelly,

Thank you for the information.  When trying to choose a room color - the Vaspar color tool sounds like it would be very helpful.  Again, thanks for sharing!  Enjoy your Sunday!

Kelly - It seems like this is a very useful tool.  I wonder if it is available in Canada.
