Create a Look You’ll Love with Sherwin Williams ColorSnap® Paint Color Visualizer Tool
The easiest way to choose the best interior paint color is to start with a color palette you love. Choosing your favorite color as a base to build your palette is a great way to get started and will ensure you are pointed in the right direction. However, there are other factors to consider. Which room are you redoing? Are you designing around a specific theme or decor inspiration? Are you getting ready to sell? Whether you’re choosing a different palette for every room, or a unified scheme, making sure the paint colors you choose to align with your goals is important—and what’s more, making sure you make the right choice before the brush meets the wall is critical. That’s where color visualizer tools, like Sherwin Williams’ ColorSnap® come in really handy.
Using Color Theory to Find Inspiration
Creating a color scheme can seem daunting when you have no place to start, and hundreds of thousands of paint colors and shades (and don’t even get started on the sheen discussion) to choose from. You don’t have to be an artist or an interior designer or study color theory to get great ideas from a little color wheel. Using a color wheel to see how colors relate to one another can help you decide on a color scheme quickly. While the color wheel will merely show basic colors and their relationships, and likely won’t be the actual paint shades you use, color theory is a great starting point. From there, you can begin to select paint colors to start building a palette based on your design inspiration, and color preferences.
Selecting Paint Colors with Swatches and Samples
While building inspiration and selecting individual paint colors using tools like color theory and inspiration boards is helpful, you still don’t know how the colors will look. Most hardware or paint suppliers offer paint swatches and samples to take with you when deciding on paint colors. Chips, swatches, and even small sample-sized containers of paint are all useful tools in the initial planning stages of building a palette, creating a vision or inspo board, or matching decor however, they don’t do much for knowing how the color will look on an entire wall, or throughout a whole room. With the help of technology, you can ensure you choose the right color every time—the first time.
