Redesign your house from the comfort of your couch

Redesign your house from the comfort of your couch

If you’ve ever wished you could really imagine the walls of your house a different color or your furniture in a different arrangement, wish no more. Today you don’t have to have a fantastic imagination in order to visualize your home with a different style or design. All you need is access to the apps newly available that help you redecorate and redesign your home.

View your home in 3D

Home Design 3D is one such option. At just $7 on iOS, it has the capability to turn "a two-dimensional view of your home into a three-dimensional graphic that you can view from any angle and even walk around as if inside." It requires some basic knowledge of how to manipulate iOS apps and some time to acquaint yourself with the functions in order to operate it correctly. You start out by drawing out your home at the two-dimensional level, even inputting precise measurements so you can be sure it matches your house exactly. Then you can add doorways, windows, wall colors, and floor textures. Once you’re done, you can animate it to the 3D level.

Browse database of design photos

Another design app which is much simpler is Houzz Interior Design Ideas, which is free on Android and iOS. It has an extensive database of design photos which you can browse based on room category. You can then save or bookmark the photos you like to come back to and peruse again later.
