Would you like to know how your favorite sofa will look in your living room before you buy it? Or maybe you need to name a nice shade? Cannot decide on the choice of wallpaper in your bedroom? Now all you need is a smartphone and a few apps. Interior design applications, painting apps, 3D interior visualization, etc. – the choice of application for repair and home decoration is huge!
Smartphones, tablets, and other useful gadgets are increasingly integrated into our daily lives. And if you haven’t already wondered how your mobile device can help you decorate your interior, then we advise you to get acquainted with the 7 most useful and cool apps.
1. IKEA Catalogue
Now IKEA fans can not only view the company’s catalogs on their mobile devices but also virtually project their favorite furniture directly into their room. The app works on both iOS and Android operating systems.
You just need to scan the models you like using your smartphone or tablet, as well as take a photo of the magazine on the floor of the room so that the app can determine the scale of the projection relative to space. That’s all, after a successful “fitting” of the sofa, you can safely go to the nearest store to buy it!
Another company decided to follow the example of famous Swedes and developed a similar application. By downloading it to your smartphone, you will be able to select the desired items from a large product catalog and project them onto your interior. At the end of the virtual arrangement, you can even take a picture and save it in the memory of the device. Just keep in mind that the app is only designed for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch. Unfortunately, it is not available for the Android platform.
A very useful program that will quickly and qualitatively make a selection of color combinations to any necessary shade. And it will happen in the best traditions of coloring. So now you don’t have to worry about what color curtains to choose for the Wallpaper in the living room. The app was created only for Android devices.
4. Benjamin Moore Color Capture
Another application related to colors, but working on a different principle. This incredibly convenient tool is not only for designers but for ordinary users as well. It will allow you to recognize any shade with a photo. Just take a picture and Color Capture will do the rest. You can find it on Google Play and AppStore.
5. Magic Plan
It’s just amazing! This is how you can characterize an application that allows you to create a plan of the room with only one frame, which is priceless for anyone who wants to repair. Take a photo, and the application will calculate everything by itself and draw a room not only in the correct proportions but also with placed furniture! Works under the operating systems from Google and Apple.
6. Homestyler Interior Design
As always, this is an excellent software from the brilliant Autodesk Inc. Using a normal snapshot of a room, a three-dimensional basis of space is created. You can add anything you want to this space. Furniture, lamps, paintings, mirrors, and carpets – all this appears on the screen with just one touch of a finger. Above all, you can share your projects through social networks and find many interesting articles and contacts within the application itself. Installation is possible both from Google Play and AppStore.
7. Color Wheel – Basic color schemes
This application is not only for interior design but for everyone who needs to find a favorable color combination as well. This is done with the help of a color wheel: you just need to choose the type of wheel (there are only six), then see what colors are combined, and which are not.
There is not a word about the interior. But if you still haven’t decided what color to paint the walls or what curtains to choose for the kitchen – the app will help you navigate.
