Friday, May 29, 2020

There’s nothing like a newly decorated room to help us to feel relaxed and at home. Every room in your house will affect your mood when you spend time in it, spaces that are neglected or lacking in charisma will only make you feel lethargic and uncomfortable. When you’re next decorating your home, here are four apps that can help you to get organized and creative!

1 . iHandy Carpenter

Before you start your next home improvement project, make sure that you download the iHandy Carpenter app. With this app you’ll get digital plumb bobs, leveling tools, and bubble level bars, to help you complete your projects perfectly. Using the tool you can check that all is well aligned including your photos, walls, and surfaces. The app also comes with a protractor and a ruler, so you can ensure that your measurements are always correct.

2. Planner 5D

Planner 5D helps users to build 2D or 3D renderings of their home, to plan redesigns. Using the app you can plan out your rooms and visualize the outcomes before making changes. The application includes an extensive item catalog and a simple drag and drop interface. One of the best features is the ‘snapshot’ setting which can help you to achieve realistic images with appropriate lighting. Users can download Planner 5D for desktop or mobile, and sign in with Google or Facebook if they prefer. It’s helpful to have a floor plan when you are planning a large scale renovation.

3. Craftgawker

Craftgawker is an app that offers tips and ideas on craft projects. Here you’ll find guides, creative DIY tasks, and eco-friendly ideas. Craft experts and users can submit their projects, to help others get inspired. The app is perfect for those who love making their own items and are looking to spruce up their home. Whether it’s an upcycled vase, cushion covers, rugs, or decorative frames, Craftgawker will help you to keep your home looking lovely. Making your own decorative items is an excellent way to go green and use up old things around your house. What’s more, you’ll also save money with DIY home projects.

4. Design Home

Design Home is a game that can help you to imagine creative ideas for your home. With this game, you become an interior designer, and get to build your dream home (virtually)! Just because the app isn’t for real it doesn’t mean that it’s not a great way to visualize color schemes, play around with ideas, and let your creativity flow. Design Home also has an online community where you can share your rooms and even vote on those that you like best. (There’s nothing stopping you from using the in-game designs to inspire your real-life interiors)!

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, we’ve all been spending more time at home than usual. Now is the ideal time to get around to all those home improvement jobs that you’ve been putting off. From your appliance repair to painting your fences and planting new flowers, why not take this time to get your home in tip-top shape?
