This blog is provides a list of 10 of the best interior design apps to help you create new spaces in your home.
Pinterest and Instagram
If you haven’t looked at Pinterest or Instagram for ideas and are questioning where to start, you are seriously missing a trick.
With the ability to get ideas from thousands of users, Pinterest is a great app for those looking for inspiration, design ideas, or generally seeing up to date trends. This is a fantastic tool to help you get started in your interior design journey.
Instagram is a hub for inspiration and ideas, not just for interior design, but everything you can imagine. With interior design becoming much more digitised, a new wave of interior designers are using the media savvy approach to bring ideas straight to your smartphone. From cutting edge designers to experienced industry professionals, Instagram provides the user with several contrasting ideas which may be just the inspiration needed for the next project. This is an app you need to look at before starting your inter-design mission.
With 16 million + high-resolution images of every sort of interior you can imagine, Houzz is a great app to have in mind for the bit of inspiration you may desperately need. From everything to space-saving hacks and modern bedroom designs, to finding the ideal coffee table for your living room, Houzz allows you to navigate through ideas for your perfect home.
In addition to inspiring you, Houzz allows you to find professionals who are going to be able to help fulfil your grand plans should you need them.
This app breaks the mould from the first two. Have you ever walked down the street or into someone’s house and saw a colour you liked, but wasn’t too keen to ask how they got it or where they got it from? Color Grab helps you in those moments and will give suggested paint options, by simply taking a picture of the colour. This is the saving grace for the new paint you wanted in the bedroom.
This is very similar to Color Grab but allows you to build your palettes as wel. You can easily share your ideas with your interior designer (if you have one) or your friends and family for their opinion.
This is an app which allows you to design a room by merely taking a picture. You can design the layout of your room on your phone. If you like what you create you can ahead and buy the items straight away – it’s essentially a one stop shop for interiors.

Before making an impulse decision and deciding this is the right one for you, you can see whether it looks on the wall and how it fits. This is perfect for those who are looking to fill empty wall space or create a feature wall.
