But if trekking out to your local home improvement store is too much of a chore, we’ve got good news—you can completely change the color of your apartment without even leaving your couch! Here are three companies that deliver paint to your door – plus more Other things supplies you need to get the job done.

Clare’s 70 wall colors are organized by undertones — useful when you know you’re looking for colors that look good with decor and paint colors you already have. An online quiz will match you with a color option based on factors such as the type of room you plan to paint, size, lighting in the room, and style you’re looking for. If you want to see how the color will look on your wall, Clare has peel-and-stick decals that make it useful to choose a color without having to paint over swatches later. All paints are free of toxic carbon-based solvents, hazardous air pollutants and EPA chemicals. Clare also offers kits that include the supplies you need (tray, roller, brushes and more) and shipping is free on orders over $100. Prices for a gallon of paint start at $69.
Instead of hundreds of colors to choose from, Backdrop has rounded up 50 options they think look good on walls, breaking the colors into broader categories like “neutral,” “light,” and “bold.” Like Clare, Backdrop sends you peel-and-stick samples so you can actually see how the color will look on your wall. They also have a calculator to help you determine how much paint to use. The company’s Essential Kit contains everything you need for a painting project, from brushes to rollers and tape. Shipments are free and arrive between 1-3 business days. Prices for a gallon of paint start at $45.
You probably recognize Behr from the aisles of Home Depot, where they have hundreds of colors, but a smaller selection of its paints can be ordered from Behr Express online shop. There are 59 colors to choose from, and Behr also helpfully breaks them down into room categories so you can find their best picks for each room. Like Clare and Backdrop, Behr also offers peel-and-stick paint samples, as well as an all-in-one kit that includes all the supplies you need for your painting project. A gallon of paint starts at just $40, and the price for the all-in-one kit is only $53.
And don’t forget the tools
In general, you need a roller, a paint tray, a paint stirrer, tape, drop cloth and a ladder. You can expect to spend at least $30 on supplies. This 11-piece painter’s roller set is $17.99 on Amazon and the painter’s tape is $7.88. The biggest expense will be a ladder if you don’t already have one; these easily exceed $100.
