Is it time for all or part of your house to get a fresh coat of paint? Not sure what colors you want to use or how they'll look when painted on a wall? Here is a helpful tip that lets you get an idea of what the color will look like before you invest in a do-it-yourself project or hire a professional.
Sherwin Williams has the ColorSnap® Visualizer that allows you to use existing scenes or upload your own photos. You can then choose paint colors for different substrates and then get a nice visual of what the colors will look like.
If you want to see colors offered by different brands, you can check out their official websites for similar color previewing programs. For example, Benjamin Moore has their Personal Color Viewer and Behr® has their ColorSmart program. Each of these sites provide a user-friendly interface that allows you to see how colors will look in various room styles as well as exteriors.
When you are satisfied with the look you want, you can stop by your local paint store and pick up a sample quart to test it out first. What if you like a color from Sherwin Williams but want to use Behr Paint or vice versa? Simple, bring a color swatch or color number from your local Sherwin Williams to the store where you are buying Behr paint and they can do a color match. Many professional paint stores and home supply stores will already have the formula on file for most paint brands.
