Homestyler Interior Design

Most furniture is a fairly expensive purchase so if you don’t like the way that table or couch looks in your house you are definitely going to return it. It can take several trips to the store and back to see what furniture looks good in your house. If you don’t like the tedious trips back and fourth then Homestyler is the solution for you. The app allows you to see how furniture and decor will look like in your house from real brands. This app makes decorating easy and it will save you all of those back and fourth trips!

Paint Apps

Traditionally, picking a paint colour meant putting several swatches on a wall and seeing which you liked best. Virtual paint apps are easier, less messy and allow you to see what the entire wall will look like painted.  As a result, these apps have been gaining popularity! TapPainter allows you to choose colours from a wheel with the option of changing brightness and saturation. Users can also choose colours from brands like Benjamin Moore and Sherwin Williams paint colours. TapPainter is currently only available for IOS.

Other virtual paint apps include Project Color. This is The Home Depot’s version of a paint app and allows you find colours for both interior and exterior projects. Several brands such as CIL and Glidden have their own versions of virtual painters as well. There a ton out there so it may be time to put away your paint swatches for good!
