Can AI paint my house and choose interior colors?

We asked AI to paint a house and choose the colors so it doesn’t ruin yours

Robots and AI are evidently coming for everyone’s jobs, so naturally we took a keen interest in the use of AI to paint houses. We asked ChatGPT if it could get started on a house we’ve got coming up in Walnut Creek:

While AI has made significant progress in various areas, such as computer vision and robotics, it is not yet advanced enough to paint your house entirely on its own. Painting a house involves a complex set of tasks, such as selecting the right type of paint, preparing the surface, protecting surrounding areas, and applying the paint in a precise and consistent manner. These tasks require not only technical expertise but also physical dexterity and attention to detail, which current AI systems are not capable of.

Ah ha! Artificial intelligence has been foiled on account of not having any, you know, arms or hands.

Everyone here at Woodiwiss Painting is relieved to learn we’ve not been replaced yet. 

However, AI can assist in certain aspects of the painting process, such as recommending the optimal type of paint based on the surface material, and analyzing images of the house to determine the areas that need to be painted. In these cases, AI is used as a tool to augment human expertise and make the painting process more efficient and accurate.

Alright, fine, what color should I paint my house then?

Choosing the color to paint your house depends on several factors, including your personal preference, the style of your home, the surrounding environment, and the color scheme of the neighborhood. Here are some tips that might help you make a decision:

  • Consider the architectural style of your house. Different architectural styles have certain colors that complement their design. For example, a Victorian-style house might look good in pastel colors, while a modern home might look better in bold, bright colors.
  • Look at the colors of the surrounding environment. The colors of your house should complement the natural landscape and environment around it. For instance, if you live in a green area, a beige or light green color might look good.
  • Take into account the neighborhood. While you want your house to stand out, you also want it to fit in with the neighborhood. Take a walk around the neighborhood and look at the color schemes of other houses to get a sense of what might work well.
  • Think about the psychology of color. Different colors can have an impact on mood and emotions. For example, blue can create a sense of calm and relaxation, while red can evoke energy and passion.

So, uh, a bright pastel beige house that stands out but is also bold and still fits in and doesn’t make anyone sad. Got it. But what about the inside of my house?

Choosing the color to paint the inside of your house also depends on various factors, such as the style of your home, the amount of natural light, the size of the room, and your personal preference. Here are some tips that might help you make a decision:

  • Consider the style of your home. The colors you choose should complement the style of your home’s architecture and interior design. For example, if you have a traditional style home, you might want to choose classic, muted colors like beige or gray, while a modern home might look good with bold, bright colors.
  • Take into account the amount of natural light. The amount of natural light in a room can affect the way colors appear. If a room has a lot of natural light, you can go for darker, bolder colors. However, if a room lacks natural light, lighter and brighter colors can help make the room feel more spacious and airy.
  • Think about the size of the room. Lighter colors can make small rooms feel larger, while darker colors can make larger rooms feel more intimate.
  • Consider the psychology of color. Different colors can evoke different moods and emotions. For example, blue can create a sense of calm and relaxation, while yellow can evoke happiness and energy.

So traditional houses should be muted and gray, but only modern homes can be bold or bright. Unless it’s a well-lit room, then it should be dark, and small rooms should be painted bright. Not sure we totally agree with that, but okay.

Ultimately, the color you choose should make you happy and reflect your personal style. You can also consult with a professional painter or color expert for more guidance.
