This color matching gadget is a must for any home remodel or painting project
When your mind is in home renovation mode, there’s design inspiration pretty much everywhere you turn, especially when it comes to colors. Yet, without fail, the hues we think would look best splashed on our kitchen cabinets or bathroom tiles, never happen to be ones we found on a color swatch.
Instead, we’re left playing the guessing game of find that color name through endless Google searching or unsuccessful trips to our local home improvement store. That’s where the Nix Mini 2 Color Sensor can help.
This nifty tool can easily identify any color IRL just with a simple scan. The device pairs with its companion app and compares your chosen hue scanned from most surfaces (painted walls, vinyl, leather, plastic, fabric, dyes and more) to that of nearly 100,000 paint colors, to help you pinpoint the exact name of the color you’re looking for. From there, the app will also color swatch it to a variety of paints from leading purveyors including Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams, so you’ll know exactly what to add to your shopping cart.
And even if you’re not working on a DIY project at the moment, the app will save any of the colors you find so when the time does come to go all Fixer Upper on your home, you’ll have your favorite paints ready-to-go.
While normally priced at $99, currently the Nix Mini Color Sensor V2 is on sale for 15% off, making the device just $84.
