Did you know that your smartphone can be a useful tool when it comes to tackling a home decorating or redesign project? Today, I'm handing over the blogging reigns to guest blogger Jemma Dane, whose going to introduce you to four home decorating apps that you simply cannot live without!
Websites, blogs, magazines and lifestyle TV channels have provided us with plenty of ideas to redesign our homes and live in style, but the problem with these platforms are the accessibility of the tutorials, as well as the furniture and decorations showcased in these publications. Now that we’re fully immersed in the digital age, we need tools that we can instantly refer to to help us with whatever design problems we may have at any given time or place. Have you thought about using your smartphone as an assistant for your interior decorating project?
It’s crazy to think that a phone could have such capabilities, essentially eliminating the need to hire an interior designer, especially since the primary use of a phone is to keep in touch with people. For some time, one of the few purposes for our phones other than communication was entertainment (which is why in the early stages of the app store, it was games that saw the most downloads). From the revival of the beloved Nokia snake game to mobile platforms breathing new life into old favorites like Slingo, the mobile gaming industry began to pave ways for all sorts of app developers to create their own products using similar technologies and functions.
HOME DECORATING APPS
Now, there isn’t anything you can’t do with the help of your smartphone, whether we want to learn a new language or need ideas for home renovation.
For all your home redesigning projects, here are a few apps to check out:
Need a space to brainstorm your ideas? Instead of using poster boards and magazine cutouts to make your moodboard, save space and time by compiling everything into this iPad app. You can create multiple boards for your various motifs, collecting photos from your album or from the web to pin onto them with the layering effect included. You can also choose to edit the photos and refer to the color wheel or selection of palettes to guide you in the board’s theme. To top it off, the boards have built in designs to mimic real boards, such as cork, graph paper, blueprint, among others.
