Virtual tool helps pick paint colour
A survey by Canadian company CIL identified choosing the right paint colour as one of the biggest home-decorating challenges, so the company has launched a new website that makes it easier.
Based on a model home concept, the website allows visitors to view dozens of room settings, each featuring a different wall colour.
“Although people have relied on paint chips to help them make colour selections for decades, it’s very difficult to envision how the chip they’re holding in the palm of their hand will look on the entire length of a wall,” said Alison Goldman, brand manager for CIL paint.
A visualizer tool allows you to see different colour combinations or upload photos of your home, save your colour choices in a project folder and share them through social media, an option also available on the free iPad app CIL Simply Beautiful Colour Studio.
CIL paint website and app are both free at CIL.ca or iTunes store.
