Must-Have Apps for Your Color Palette Needs

Posted on June 9, 2015

For every home redecorating project, picking out paint colors is probably one of the most important and equally difficult things you will have to decide on.

Because choosing colors is such a big decision, it can be quite overwhelming, especially if you’re doing it on your own. But it’s actually fun to do and the results can turn your room into nothing less than a work of art if you do it right. But if you’re still hesitant if you’re picking the right colors, here are must-have apps to help you make the crucial selections for your project:


An app that was originally created for designers, Coolors develops an endless array of color combinations which makes choosing a color palette infinitely easier. If for instance, you already have a color or shade in mind, tap on it and Coolors will develop a palette based on your chosen color. The app is available for $0.99 on the App Store.


With an extensive library of colors housing 1500 shades, ColorSnap works by matching colors from pictures you’ve taken. What’s exciting about this app is that it lets you visualize how a room will look like once you’ve painted its walls. You can do this by taking a photo of the room.

Real Colors

If you’re an aspiring interior designer, then Real Colors is the best assistive app for you! All you have to do is take a photo and Real Colors will create a color palette based on the colors it finds in the photo you took. You can even choose what kind of palette it comes up with, whether it be complementary or monochromatic. You can download it for free from the App Store and Google Play.


Here’s the scenario: you’ve already chosen a color but you don’t know how much you will need. ColorSmart helps you find out how much paint will cover the project. Just like ColorSnap and Real Colors, it also matches a color to a photo you’ve taken but aside from that, it can also calculate how much paint you need to get to finish a whole project.
