Default Online Tools to Help You Choose Interior Paint Colors

Choosing an interior paint color is a stressful process for many home owners. Which color will look best? Should you simply go with a neutral color? What about a colorful accent wall? Is this shade too dark?
Although some artistic types can easily create pleasing interior color palettes without batting an eye, most of us are not quite sure how to successfully combine colors for a winning look.
To start, try this slick interior color scheme design tool; which makes it easy to quickly view several types of color schemes, including monochromatic, complimentary, triad and tetrad. It is the most sophisticated free color schemer that I have come across on the internet. Simply choose your base color and click through the schemes; a virtual paint swatch displays the color combination.

I recently discovered ColorSuckr, a neat color tool that creates a color palette from a photo. You can choose a photo from those displayed, search Flickr for the perfect image, or to link to an image. Perhaps there is a stunning picture of a field of tulips (like this one I found with the Flickr search feature), and you’d like to recreate the color scheme in your own space. See the results!

Get some fresh and funky ideas about interior painting at,when you scroll through home decorating image galleries. You can also get interior paint ideas by selecting a particular color, such as pink.

The internet makes it easier to choose the perfect paint color for your interior. Color tools, image galleries, blogs full of ideas and advice . . . of course, picking a bunch of paint swatches from your local hardware store is a good place to start, too!
