5 Handy iPhone Apps for Your Next Home Redesign Project
Moving into a new home means you get a chance to redecorate. Design your children’s bedroom into a Harry Potter-themed wonderland or, if not, just a room that’s nice enough for them to want to stay there for hours, enjoying their solitude and for you to enjoy the peace and quiet of the rest of the house.
Here are a few apps that will be great when you’re starting to plan on how to redecorate your homes:
If you’re looking to paint your walls, you’d want to make sure that it matches your bright yellow curtains or your neon green chairs. Painting the walls bright orange and realizing how awful the room looks later is just wasting time and effort. With the ColorSmart app, you can snap a picture of the room you intend to paint, and mix and match colors in the app before actually getting started.
This is the app to have when you’re undecided on how to design your house from the inside. It has a collection of photos of every type of room where you can get an idea on how to design your room most effectively. The app also has a directory of local designers, architects, and contractors for your convenience.
Color Capture, free
Paint samples are a great help in making sure you get the right shade of red or pink or whatever color it is you’re using. These things are awesome, but, when you get them all mixed up, it’s all over for you. Remembering the perfect shade is a lot easier when you have the Color Capture app. This app allows you to select and bookmark the exact color shade so you don’t lose it. Color Capture also gives you information about paints and colors. But, remember, sometimes, colors on a screen can be different in real life. So it’s always best to double-check with a printed paint sample before proceeding.
Home 3D, $3.99
3D is the next best thing to real life, because it gives you a complete idea on how your plans may or may not work. And with interior design, planning is everything. With the Home 3D app, you can get a clear visual on your home will look and know what will fit. Move windows and floors to match space and set material on floors and walls. And when you’re satisfied with the designs, email them to your interior designer or contractor or save them to Dropbox.
Mark on Call, $2.99
This app is a must-have for professional designers who are making a living by helping people design ways to maximize the space they have. You don’t have to worry about aesthetics or logistics again when you have this app. It also allows you to customize skin furniture and countertops so you will know the best color scheme to go with when redesigning.
