Choosing a paint color used to mean spending an afternoon wandering the aisles of paint chip samples.

Thanks to a handful of smart designers and paint companies, there’s a better way to shop for paint. Take a look below at a few of our favorite tools and decide which is best for you and your next paint project.

Call her a revolutionary with a roller. Interior designer Nicole Gibbons has started Clare, a paint company that simplifies the often overwhelming process of choosing a color. “Decorators don’t have 3,000 favorite colors. They have a short list they know and love and could recommend for any space,” she says. Pulling from that knowledge, Gibbons assembled a collection of 55 colors on a user-friendly website that includes images of each color in different lighting conditions and detailed descriptions that note undertones.
The Clare Color Genius tool asks a series of questions and lets you upload photos of your space. Based on your answers, it picks the best color for your room. (Consider it a paint-style quiz.) Stickers let you try out the colors before you buy ($49/gallon in eggshell or semigloss). The $2 8-inch-square repositionable stickers allow you to try colors in different spots, lighting conditions, and combinations. And there’s no need to pick up the paint at a store; it’s delivered to your door.
