Paint Color Renderings – a free service for any project we quote!

Posted on August 24, 2022

“How will my house look after it’s painted?”

The process can be overwhelming if you’re thinking of changing the color of your home’s exterior or a room inside.

Many people have difficulty visualizing a new paint color and get stuck.  And this causes them to paint the same color all over again.

Or some people know the look they want, but the colors they’re considering are “not perfect.”

Do-it-yourself paint color apps are hard to use:

Some turn to online color visualizers and photo painting apps that help you visualize how paint colors you’re considering might look.  But there are many downsides to these apps:

  • Paint rendering of a shed in gray with a dark door.
    Our designer Kate is so adept at doing realistic color renderings; check out this computerized rendering of a customer’s gray shed – the shingles look “mottled,” and it looks like we’ve already painted it.

    House painting color visualizers, simulators, and phone apps are difficult for the general population to use.  It’s especially hard to “outline the house” using a trackpad or mouse.

  • More importantly, the color you paint your photo is often not what the color will look like on your home’s exterior or in the room when shadows and lighting come into play – a designer needs to be able to interpret the colors and adjust them so you know that what you see is close to what you’ll get.  There would be nothing worse than thinking you’re getting dark blue paint but having it look royal blue because of how the sunlight hits your home.

This is why we have our staff designer, Kate Rafoth, provide a color rendering of the space you’re painting for anyone who wants one.  Kate considers the lighting in or on your home and any shadows so that the color on the computer rendering is close to what you’ll see when we start painting.



Free computer renderings:  Visualize your home in different paint colors.

This means you’ll be able to see different colors on your house.  You’ll be able to visualize the paint colors you’re thinking about before we pick up a brush.

Many families have used our color rendering service to settle color disputes!  This is much better and less expensive than having us paint and then realizing your paint choice looks terrible.
