Identify, Test, And Browse New Looks

These powerful iPhone wall paint apps let users preview colors on their walls, making it easier to try out a tint or shade before painting.

Users can use an iPhone to identify, test and browse new looks for wall coloring using popular paint color apps in Apple’s App Store. These new home decor tools provide more than just a library of colors. Some present an augmented reality view of various palettes on the iPhone user’s walls and scanning colors from paint chips or the user’s home to explore a range of possibilities.

Apple introduced ARKit with iOS 11, bringing a unified approach to augmented reality to the iPhone and iPad and instantly making it one of the largest AR platforms in the world. While the iPhone 12 Pro and iPhone 13 Pro have LiDAR scanners to speed up AR capabilities, any iPhone made since 2013 can install AR apps and see effects overlaid onto live camera views.

Using the iPhone’s AR, the latest generation of paint apps makes it easy to see how a fresh new wall color can brighten and enhance the look of a room. Several decorating apps are available for the iPhone, but only a few focus on wall paint and feature the new visualization power of AR. Sherwin Williams, a paint manufacturer, offers one of the best solutions. The ColorSnap Visualizer app gives a live AR view of its large selection of paints with a simple tap on a wall as viewed within the app. It’s also possible to select a color from a photo to find a match within Sherwin Williams paint which is lovely for touchups or repairs. Consumers can scan the code to preview the paint via AR if a favorite color chip has already been found. Its ColorSnap Match app gives a more precise scan of color but requires one of its color matching devices, sold in Sherwin Williams stores. A dedicated device could be critical to getting a good match since ambient lighting can confuse a smartphone camera.

Benjamin Moore’s Color Portfolio app is just as powerful and a bit easier to use. It features a similar live AR view using the iPhone’s camera, presenting a color chip fan-like interface that looks just like a real color guide at a paint store. Colors are grouped by hue, making it fun to browse and quickly test out many shades and tints. Benjamin Moore also has a ColorReader device to get the most accurate matches, and it works with the Color Portfolio app.

Home Depot’s Project Color app allows the user to browse Home Depot’s paint selection, including Behr and Glidden paints. Users can virtually test colors on the walls of a room by using its color preview. Like the other home decorating apps mentioned above, colors can also be selected from the room, and the app finds matching paints. A fun addition for Pinterest users is picking a color palette based on pins and project boards. The augmented reality capability of the iPhone provides an easy and mess-free way to try out new looks with just a few taps.
