6 Apps That Will Change the Way You Decorate

Home > Blog > Home > 6 Apps That Will Change the Way You Decorate
Posted on August 4, 2017 by Laura Lucky

Choosing the right tools, colors and furniture to decorate your home can be overwhelming. Luckily, there’s an app for that – several actually. Here are six you’ll find particularly helpful in getting you through that design to-do list.

VIEW IN MY ROOM 3D
Take the guesswork out of online furniture shopping with this new feature on the Houzz app, which lets you try out products in your home before you buy them. Search from over 300,000 items in the Houzz Shop, select “view in my room 3D” and the product will pop up in a photo of your space!
 
COLOR CAPTURE
This color matching app from Benjamin Moore allows you to take a picture of anything that inspires you and it will match the color to one of their 3,500 paint options. It’s practically Shazam for paint!
 
iHANDY CARPENTER
The incredibly useful app, appropriately called iHandy, brings five essential decorating tools to the palm of your hand – like that bubble level bar you can never find. We like to use it for smaller projects, like hanging a new picture frame.
 
PHOTO MEASURES
When shopping for furniture, you could A) jot down all of your room’s measurements into your phone’s notepad and then try to visualize what goes where when you get to the store. Or, B) download Photo Measures. The app lets you draw all of the dimensions of walls and flooring, directly onto a picture of the room.
 
MARK ON CALL
Drawing up a floor plan might sound complicated, but Mark on Call makes it a breeze. Arrange and rearrange pieces in the app using custom measurements and pictures of your furniture and fabrics. If you don’t like the flow, starting over is a snap.
 
ARTFULLY WALLS’ TRY ON WALL
If you’re uncertain what exactly that gallery wall will look like, Try On Wall is here to help. Take a snap of your proposed backdrop and then place images on it virtually. You can even shop for pieces within the app.
