Have you ever had a friend or client who cannot visualize what their paint selection will look like with their floor, countertop, or cabinets? In my years of dealing with people, this is proven to be very common problem, if not the norm.
cheerfully agreed to have our painter paint the wall.
The blue color Mrs. B selected looked horrible with her flooring—I tried to tell her that it would, so here comes sample #2. We just couldn’t partially paint #2 over of the just-painted blue wall…so I had to have my painter repaint the entire wall. Now, this time it was too green.
“There is a syndrome in sports called ”paralysis by analysis.””, Arthur Ashe. Nobody likes making the wrong decision. When it comes to our making decisions, it’s only natural to want to be “right.” After all, picking the wrong paint color, flooring, or other important home finishes is about as fun as failing in your favorite sport (remember Martina Navratilova’s quote: ”whoever said, ‘it’s not whether you win or lose that counts,’ probably lost.”).
Ultimately, the blessing was, Mrs. B now loves her living room and she paid for our extra effort along with the materials. And in the long run, the kind of service we provided paid off as she called us back several times afterward for additional renovation needs.
To have avoided this wasted effort, what I really needed was a way for Mrs. B to visualize her living room painted blue. Thanks to the visualization tools found at MyVisualHome.com, it is easy to see how this tool has become invaluable for our clients.
