Redecorating and repainting one’s house can be a nightmare! First you have to pore over catalogue after catalogue to find the perfect shade, then paint small boxes on your wall to figure out whether it will look good in the entire room and if you end up choosing the wrong colour, something that you completely hate, you will have to start all over again. Now, this can be really expensive not to mention time consuming.
Asian Paints realized that many of their customers face this dilemma and they decided to launch a feature called Colour Chef on their website. How will Colour Chef help you?
Well, it helps you virtually paint your rooms in the colour of choice for better visualization so that you end up picking something you really love. Let me show you a step by step guide to using Colour Chef.
When you launch the Colour Chef, the first thing that you are asked is to choose whether you would like to paint the interior or the exterior of the house.
Then it shows you three set of options. You need to choose between plain finish, textures and wall fashions. I found these options to be amazing because in your regular catalogue you can hardly find such innovative designs. I was really excited to try this feature out.
Now after choosing the option I wanted, I tried to click the next button. But the page told me that I need to upload a photograph of the room that I would like to get painted. You can see a small blue button on the write hand side right? You need to upload the image there.
If you are feeling too lazy to click a picture and upload then you can select from a few sample photos that the website has.
Once that is done you will have to choose your themes and shades
And Tadaaa….Colour Chef will apply it to the photo and show you how it will look in your selected room.
Interesting isn’t it? I had loads of fun picking and choosing colours and patterns for my room, which is all set to be repainted this summer. I hope you found this tool useful, too J
