Sites to "virtually" change paint colors?
Are there any sites that exist where you can "virtually" try out different paint colors on a wall? We've seen books that let you switch out things like hardwood floor finishes, carpet colors, wall colors, ceiling colors, etc and I was curious if there was a place online that could do that.

I'm well aware that computer monitor colors differ from one another, but I'm just looking for something to help get my wheels turning.

Go into "For Your Home" then "Personal Color Viewer"

The PCV is also available as a program for your computer for around 15 bucks
The advantage of that one (as opposed to the free online one) is you can punch in digital photos of your own home

The online one is great also, but you use stock bath.bed/living room shots, and that one's free

Ah that looks great!

Do you know of one that lets you change out hardwood floors and/or carpet colors?

One the things that we're wanting to do is see how certainly colors look with our hardwood floors that are fairly dark.

Go here:

This is a flooring selector but you can choose from a Ben Moore color palette for the walls as well.
