Envisioning new paint schemes has never been easier than with online paint visualizers. Formerly, predicting what your room color would look like was exactly like predicting the future: a lot of educated hit-and-miss work. Test-daubing ovals of paint on your wall, test-painting entire walls, painting cardboard squares and taping them up: all have their merits and their disadvantages. But online paint visualizers provide the one view that no other method can give. With these programs, you are able to view the entire room in a new paint color, not just sections. On top of that, you can usually view the new color at different times of the day to see how your color might look at dusk, noon, night, or in the morning’s first light.
Before you invest time in any paint visualizer, it is important to remember that these are marketing tools that paint companies offer for free to lead you toward purchasing their products. While the world of free online tools is familiar to most of us, what this means in a material sense is that you will be led down a well-tended pathway to a paint purchase from a single company. While it is possible to copy paint colors from one manufacturer to another, you will always see the greatest color fidelity by sticking with the same company. So, you may wish to eliminate online tools from paint manufacturers not represented by brick-and-mortar locations near to you. Nothing can be more frustrating than settling on that perfect bathroom paint color, then finding out that it is not available to you.
