You’ve found the perfect couch but you’re wondering if it will be too big? Photo Measures is the easiest way to store measurements on your phone.

Choosing the right paint colour can be overwhelming. With the Dulux Colour app you can:

  • Browse over 4,500 colours
  • Visualise a colour in a space
  • Hear what the experts say about current colour trends
  • Save and share your choice with others

And probably the most exciting…love the shade of yellow in your egg this morning? Upload a photo to the app and it will determine the closest match from the Dulux catalogue.


Not sure how a piece of art will look in your home? Or if it will fit? Take a photo of your space, then browse included galleries or upload photos to determine what suits. A good way to avoid expensive mistakes!

If you’re an artist or seller, you can reach customers and increase sales by adding pieces to the galleries on Curate.
