Choosing the right furniture for your home can be overwhelming so we’ve researched some of the best interior design apps out there — all of which are free.
The go-to website for all things home, Houzz has its own app with a huge selection of furnishings, accessories, and lighting you can purchase. It’s also full of stunning photography which is great for inspiring your projects. Other users can connect via the app and share insights and wisdom, or you can use it to connect with a professional designer to help you transform your home. New feature ‘View in my room 3D’ lets you try products in your home before you buy them.
You’ll doubtless be scouring websites and blogs to find the best new coffee table to match your couch and accent decorations but how do you keep track of all the new things you want to buy? Many of the top home bloggers use RewardStyle (an influencer marketing platform) to link items in photos to shoppable sites. LIKEtoKNOW.it syncs with RewardStyle and can instantly pull up shopping sites of favourite looks. It lets you create your own lifestyle collection, and keeps track of all your favourite pieces and wishlist items in one place. You can also follow your favourite Instagrammers through the app.
Similar to Houzz, this wonderful app allows you to virtually outfit rooms from photos users upload. You can explore decor and furniture from your favourite brands using 3D technology to see how the space is coming together. It has a unique sliding tool which lets you see your space pre-and-post transformation.
This augmented-reality app shows you what artworks will look like on your wall before you purchase them. Choose from its wide range of curated collections, framing options and art prints. The ‘Gallery Wall Designer’ feature allows you to group different art pieces together, while ‘Visual Search’ helps you find pieces similar to the one you’ve selected.
This handy app stores notes and virtual instructions on a home's maintenance, which users can then share with family, guests and any contractors they hire. Decorators can use the ‘to-the-trade’ component to keep track of how the home’s furnishings should look.
