If you have ever struggled with picking out a paint color because you just can’t “picture it”, PPG might be able to help. PPG has a room painter tool that will let you test any of their 1,900 unique paint colors on a wide variety of sample rooms. Here’s how it’s done:
Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 9.17.59 AM1. Click here to access the Room Painter feature on PPG’s website and click “Get Started”.
Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 9.18.34 AM2. From here, you have many room types to choose from (all options on the left sidebar). We chose to sample a living room. Once you find an image you like, simply click the image.
Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 9.23.41 AM3. There are 4 different ways to choose color: browse all colors, browse color collections, match a color, and search a color. For this tutorial, we focus on searching specific colors. Type in the color name or the color number and select the color when it pops up on the screen. Note: all of the colors you have selected will pop up on the right sidebar.
Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 9.23.55 AM4. When you have chosen all of your colors, you will click “Paint You Project” which will take you to your selected room image.
Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 9.23.57 AM5. Select a color to try then hover over a surface to paint. If the surface is paintable, stripes will appear.
Screen Shot 2017-06-28 at 9.25.30 AM6. Click the surface and VOILA! You have a painted room. To try other colors, repeat step 5.

Remember, the online room painter is an approximation of what the room would like painted in the color of your choice. Various factors such as computer screen coloring and lighting in your home can effect the way the color looks. Before ordering any paint, we ALWAYS suggest to view to physical color chip first.
There you have it! Easy as 1-2-3. We even tried a few colors out ourselves! Check out our favorites below. And, if you try this for yourself, we’d love to see your favorite rooms! You can post them to our Facebook Page or tweet us @HooverPaintTN!
