Usually when people decide to paint a room it involves buying a load of tester pots, painting blobs of colour all over the room followed by countless discussions of what will work, then finally making a decision and often it’s still not the right choice. So when Dulux told us about their free Visualizer App we were super keen to give it a test run. Anything that helps make design decisions easier, especially if you’re choosing a bold paint colour, has got to be a good thing.
Here is a room before.
The app itself (for both Android and iOS) is genius. All you do is point your phone at your room, like you were about to take a picture, and it automatically assesses the space and recognises the areas that are walls. Then you just choose from hundreds of colours (or it can match a colour in your room) and click on the wall you want to colour. The app then virtually applies the colour and you can see what your room will look like straight away. If you’re happy with the result and look of your room you can then save the image to review later or even share it with friends and family.
Now you have a little fun...
So, I’m sure you’re all dying to know what it is we actually went for and – drumroll please – here is our finished room!
