A quick way to dress up a drab looking home is to paint the porch a pretty color!

A quick and easy way to give your home a refreshed look is to paint and redecorate the porch.  Did you know that the porch is trending as a place to rejuvenate and create added living space for the family?  Benjamin Moore, a leading paint company founded in 1883, has various tools which allow you to take the guesswork out of which paint colors to choose for your home.  And as for furnishing/decorating your porch in a whole new way, it’s a matter of choosing comfortable, functional, and decorative pieces which match your personal taste.

Fan Decks

Fan decks are helpful tools which will give you ideas about possible paint combinations for your porch.  Different from a standard color wheel, a fan deck gives you strips arranged by color family.  The easy-to-view strips feature a variety of shades and intensities in the same color hue.

Fan decks, used by interior designers, are useful not only for choosing paint colors but also for coordinating furnishings, fabrics, and accessories.

A color wheel or fan deck can be used to help decide on the perfect shade for your home's exterior.

Brian Gluckstein is an internationally recognized interior designer who has inspired a Benjamin Moore paints fan deck.  Gluckstein has credited Benjamin Moore paints with creating colors that have a complexity and depth which cannot be duplicated.  The shades on this Gluckstein-inspired fan deck are elegant and equip you to design your own look with the finesse of a professional.  The fan deck includes 198 colors for a home’s interior and 198 colors for the exterior.  But this is just one of many fan decks that you can choose from.

Personal Color Viewer

Even when you get a general idea about the colors you might choose for your porch, it can be a daunting task to settle on a color scheme with confidence.  The good news is that you can take the guess work out of how the new colors would look on your porch.  Benjamin Moore’s incredible tool called the Personal Color Viewer allows you to see what your house will look like painted in every imaginable color before you actually paint it.

Using the Personal Color Viewer is easy.  These are the basic steps:

Start by clicking on the camera icon to upload a picture of your home.

1.    Upload a photograph of your home (by clicking on the camera icon on the table).
2.    Select the areas on your photo where you wish to make a color change, using the drawing tools.  It works best when you block off a large area and then subtract details that you want to remain the same, using a different drawing tool.  For example, you may want to preserve the existing colors of the window and front door.
3.    Finally, simply select shades available on the Benjamin Moore Color Palette and paste in the colors in the areas of your photo that you highlighted previously.

There is a disclaimer that the color reproduction you will see on your computer screen doesn’t substitute for a true-to-life paint color evaluation.  This helpful online tool is simply a great starting point, particularly if you’re struggling with decisions about paint color.  You should still test the real paint on the surface and evaluate how it looks in natural light.
