5. Color Capture By Benjamin Moore

No More Swatch Trips or Guessing – EVER!

Description: Open-app, point at wall, identify matching paint color. It’s really that easy! You can also use it to find a paint to match any color anywhere that jives with your units’ style. 

Price: Free!

Pros: You can refresh units and preserve the look even if you don’t have the paint codes for what’s on the wall. Once you’ve saved it, you’ve got it recorded when the time comes again.

Cons: It’s accuracy is limited to the quality of your camera and the lighting in your photos and it’s matching is limited to Benjamin Moore shades. On the other hand, if they don’t make it – you’re probably looking at a color that isn’t as broadly appealing as a rental should be.
