Many people would love to paint the interior or exterior of their home, but are afraid of picking the wrong color. While paint is relatively inexpensive, the cost of choosing the wrong color and having to repaint can certainly add up. While enlisting the help of a decorator or Home Stager is always helpful, it is still difficult for most people to envision the finished product. Now, thanks to great technology provided by Sherwin Williams ( based right here in Cleveland! ), a lot of the guesswork has been taken out of the process.

This great tool is called the Color Visualizer It allows you to upload your own photos and try out different paints and trim colors. There is a great video here that will explain how to best use this tool.  I have used this successfully for my clients and it is truly amazing.  You can use it for both the exterior and interior of a home.  I truly urge you to try it out because it is really helpful.

You may also went to check out another tool from Sherwin Williams, the ColorSnap for iPhone and Blackberry.  Use your phone to snap a picture of a color that inspires you.  Not only will Sherwin Williams help you match that exact color, this app will help you fine tune it using lightness, saturation, and hue features.

Have fun with these innovative tools and please share your experiences with these or similar products in the comments section below as we'd love to hear from you.
