Colour planners to help with your design

If you find it hard to visualise how certain wall colours will go together with each other and with the furniture and floor, or if you're not sure how to design the colour choices for the walls, then a colour planner can be a great help. Many companies offer different types of colour planners, and all of them can help you decide how to blend the various colours in a complex design for a harmonious result. In order to ensure that you have the opportunity to try them out, we have compiled for you a collection of some of the most important colour planners available from the internet.

Colourful colours!

Do you fancy creating something really new and startling, but you don't know how to go about it? Then try it out in a free colour planner and let your imagination go wild! Working in a colour planner you can use the boldest colours and wackiest layouts without worrying about cleaning it off if it doesn't work, then save your design (or throw it away) and start again with a different idea ... If you want to design more than just the colours for your room then we recommend you use one of the more comprehensive planners that let you plan the layout and the furniture as well.

Softonic Color Planner Download

This app is free to use on the sample pictures of rooms and homes, but if you want to use it on pictures of your own home you will need to send the pictures to the developers to be converted, which does cost. The program is very quick and easy to install and even easier to use with large colour selections and lots of options.

Plan your exterior colour scheme

It's not only when planning your interior design details that you need to be certain of what colours go together – the exterior wall colours need to be chosen carefully as well, not only to be sure they look right for you but in order to make certain your home will be something pleasant for the neighbours to look at. Some home designers include the ability to plan the facade colour as well, so look out for this when choosing your planners.
