3 Steps to Finding the Perfect Paint Color
Create a refreshing color palette with the help of the Boysen App
Colors can easily grab attention—whether it's a bright hue or a relaxing shade. Have you ever experienced passing by a store with a captivating color scheme and wished that you can have the same palette at home? You can actually recreate and achieve similar colors with the help of an app and your smartphone!
Boysen created a color app that allows you to take a photo of your peg. Once the photo is taken, the app will recommend similar shades from their wide range of paints. It's very convenient to use as after the app shows the results, you can show it to the paint mixer at your favorite hardware store. It can even give you ideas on the colors that go well together!
Familiarize yourself with the app and see how it works with this quick overview:

Choose your Paint
What kind of surface are you painting? Are you painting on wood or concrete? Keep in mind that there are specific types of paint that go well with different surfaces. For example, enamel paint is great for painting wood while latex paint is ideal for concrete surfaces.
Take a photo
Whether it's a wall, a desk, a page from a magazine—make sure you take a sharp image.
The app itself will provide different color options for you to choose from—as well as additional information about the different hues.
The Paint Calculator
Once you've finalized the color that you need, you need to determine the amount of paint that you will be needing to cover the room or area that you are planning to work on. Simply input the size of the area in square meters then the app will automatically compute the amount of putty, topcoat, and primer that you would need.
If you want to look for more color pegs and options, simply click or tap the color collection button and the app will display hundreds of paint options that you can view and choose from.
