New apps make light work of interior design

Monday, 28 February 2011 in HPM Legrand

Two new, easy-to-use colour selector apps are taking the guesswork out of interior decorating.

The just-released HPM Linea and Legrand Arteor apps give homeowners choosing those all important finishing touches a convenient and easy way to match electrical accessories with any wall surface.

The apps allow anyone building a new home or renovating an existing one to put aside piles of product catalogues and instead use the latest interactive technology to choose accessories that look perfect in their new rooms.

Using these tools at their leisure, homeowners can test all the colour and design combinations of the Legrand Arteor and HPM Linea ranges of light switches and powerpoints.

By taking photos of walls, benchtops, splashbacks and tiles in their new house, uploading the images to the app, and then placing the chosen light switch against the surfaces, homeowners can virtually try the product before they buy.

These handy apps are free from iTunes and can be used on iPhones and iPads.

How to Guide:

• Download the two apps from iTunes and browse all the colour and design options in the Legrand Arteor and HPM Linea ranges of light switches and powerpoints.

• Choose a background colour by using a photo or browse the library of wall colours provided.

• Select from light switches or powerpoints, then try out the 18 Linea coverplate colours and the 17 Arteor styles and finishes, and find the preferred combination.

• The selected accessories can be rotated and scaled against a photo of a surface to give an accurate picture of how the light switch will look in a particular setting.

• Save favourite combinations for later reference or email selections to electricians for ordering and purchase.
