Dulux Visualizer App Written Review
We finally made it, our quick review of the Dulux Visualizer App you may have seen advertised on TV Lately.
At first glance it was a little annoying, actually requiring a second look to really get into it as it was designed to be used. The first time we took a tour, it felt like it was against you and not intuitive at all like they show you in their demo video at the beginning.
The colour pallette on launch was not all in place (certainly not on our test anyway), but the second time around all seemed well and it felt easier to navigate.
It does have a little learning curve and time to adapt to its inner working, but once you set aside some time to play, you will soon be flying around the app like a pro, searching for colours you like or know already.
In my example on the video I just searched for Red and it gave me a multitude of choice.
There is even a pop up notice to let you know that the colour on your screen may not be an exact match the real life version on your wall.
As you will see though, there is a whole spectrum of colour to walk through on screen with a swipe of the finger along the top of the screen colour selection bar.
You can then drill down to types within the range before applying and then actually testing in the app.
The actual process of colouring in your walls is not too bad to be honest. It does give you a sense of how it may actually look should you go ahead and paint. Some parts get a little pixelated, but in this case, just choose to point your camera on a smooth and uncluttered wall for maximium effect.
To be honest, I would only recommend using this app on a tablet, or certainly a larger screen smart phone as it can be a little hard with tiny buttons.
The colour ranges available are vast and we loved the option to search for a local store, like us here at Hot Pot Paint.
So to sum up, the app is what it says, a visualizer, maybe a little gimmicky to be fair, and not likely to be a mainstay tester for the long haul, but certainly some good fun has promise for the future of paint selection. Let’s hope that Dulux watches out for customer and user feedback and updates the app for future releases.
