If you are planning on doing some painting on your home, there are some Apps you may want to look at. Unfortunately I have yet to find an App that will actually paint your room or the exterior of you home, but there are some tools worth checking out.
Have you ever driven by a house and thought to yourself, “that color would look great on my home!”? Or have you ever been in Model Home or at a friends house and really liked the wall color? That kind of thing happens to me all the time, well now there are a couple Apps for that.
This free app allows you to snap a photo and touch to match the color. From there you can snap a photo of what you want painted and preview the selected color to see how it would look. Take the guess work out of color selection. I have used this and find it useful and easy to use, capturing that perfect color is easy with this app. The preview is limited, but gives you some idea. There is also a paint calculator with this app.
Now that you have your color picked out and can visualize what the room will look like. How much paint do you buy? Lowes has a handy paint calculator online where you enter the dimensions of the area you are going to paint, and it will calculate how much paint it will take to cover that area.
Are there any handy apps that you stumbled across that you would like to share?
