Not everyone is an interior decorator or designer. Even if you have a great eye for color schemes and incorporating points of interest, there are times when you may need a bit of extra help. You could always hire professionally, but sometimes, you just want a quick and easy refresh! Wouldn’t it be nice if you could receive instant assistance with the swipe of a finger? Well, you can! With the help of technology, you can have your home refreshed in no time. Here are some of our current design app favorites to help bring your coastal decor ideas to life.
Home Design Apps to Make Your Life Easier
There’s nothing worse than having a beautiful color in your home, but you just don’t know what paint matches. Maybe you want to match an accent wall to a colorful table lamp or you want your room trim to share the same tone as a coastal-inspired throw pillow. It isn’t always possible to bring a sample of the desired color into the paint supply store. With ColorSnap Studio by Sherwin-Williams, you’ll never have to. Simply snap a picture of the color you like, and the app will tell you exactly what Sherwin-Williams color matches it. Color choice made simple.
Homestyler Interior Design
Do you have a hard time picturing what a room might look like with certain coastal furnishings, accent rugs, and other features? With Homestyler Interior Design, you can instantly design the look of your room. With the phone’s camera, you’ll snap a handful of pictures. The app then threads all the images together in order to create a 3D model of the room. You can then lay out furniture, fixtures and other objects into the 3D rendering to help you determine exactly what the room might look like with your design selections.
Home Design 3D
Some people can just visualize a finished room instantly, others really need to see it first to see how everything comes together. For professional results at your fingertips, you’ll want Home Design 3D. This app is similar to Homestyler, but also allows you to design a space from the ground up. You can actually design and remodel your house in 3D. To fully visualize your dream layout, you first create a footprint and build walls. Then you can add and move furniture and architectural features.
Sometimes all that wall space can be intimidating, making it hard to determine what to hang where. Fret no longer because Curate lets you virtually see artwork scaled correctly to your wall. So before you grab the hammer and nails, download this app to make certain your beach art is in the right spot.
With the help of these design apps, you’ll have access to fantastic technology geared toward helping you transform the look of a single room or an entire house.
