These days, however, there are lots of fun and useful tools to help you explore different color schemes, choose paint colors, and much more. Take a look at some of the best color tools, below, and if you know of a great one we’ve left off the list, share it with us in the comments!

  • Benjamin Moore Personal Color Viewer– Virtually “paint” a room with Benjamin Moore paints.
