Getting colour right first time for a client can now be achieved with a new app from Crown Paints.
Set to transform the way painters and decorators explain colour to clients, the MyRoomPainter™ app will enable tradespeople to offer instant schemes while using a smartphone or mobile tablet to show how any palette will look in situ.
Available for free download, the new online tool is designed to illustrate how any room decorated with Crown Paints’ products will look in any spectrum of shades.
It also contains a colour-matching function, a handy paint calculator and an inspirational library.
Projects can be saved and shared online too, giving clients the chance to consider their options before selecting a scheme.
Debbie Orr, Crown Paints’ Marketing Manager, said: “MyRoomPainter™ will be a helpful tool to aid the way painters and decorators approach colour.
“By using the app, decorators can take pictures of a room and show their clients exactly how a finished project will look in whatever shade is chosen, taking away the fear factor from choosing colour.
“It’s instant colour scheming on the job and alongside other tools such as the paint calculator and colour-matching tool, we think it will prove an invaluable asset in our bid to provide the best possible support to those in the industry.
“Colour choice is one of the most vital aspects of any job whether the client is looking to preserve an historic feel, bring opulence into the space or make a dramatic statement.
“MyRoomPainter™ will enable painters and decorators to show their clients how the latest looks would appear in situ – allowing people to make the best choices and offer help to those looking to be really adventurous with colour.”
The app is now available to download free of charge for smartphone or tablet from the App Store or Google Play.
MyRoomPainter™ will work alongside other tools from Crown Paints, such as the powerful online resource, PaintSpec Finder®.
Available at www.crownpaintspec.co.uk the facility delivers instant and technically-detailed plans for exterior and interior projects through a user-friendly format that enables the user to filter through a great deal of technical information to pinpoint exactly what products – from Crown Trade, Sadolin and Sandtex Trade – they need for their chosen projects.
