With so many paint colors available, it can be hard to pick the right one for your home decorating project. Rather than carting home piles of paint chips, consider an online paint selector tool. Many paint companies now offer these tools to simplify the process of how to decorate your home.
Valspar’s color selector is the most comprehensive. It allows you to select rooms from their gallery or upload a photo from your home to virtually paint. They offer pallet suggestions for how to decorate a room based on your color choices and allow you to build and save decorating palettes. Their virtual painter will even show you what the rooms would look like in different lighting.
