If you are selling your home a fresh coat of paint on the walls makes your house look clean, bright, and inviting and is a fairly quick and easy way to update your home. As a home buyer you may be itching to make your new space your own by adding your own color choices and perhaps a few upgrades. Either way, as any do-it yourselfer can attest, the best of intentions can go sometimes awry with results that produce disappointment rather than accomplishment… the wall color looked so much softer on the sample, the tile does nothing to create the ambiance you envisioned, the trim color that you were sure would accent the walls nicely, now dominates them… the amount of planning and worry that goes into completing a project without a professional can at times be overwhelming, but now there’s an app for that! Here are a few of the mobile applications available to help you with your next DIY project.
Sherwin Williams and Behr offer a mobile application that allows you to virtually upload a picture of your room and touch and tap to paint it. You can explore different colors and find suggestions for complimentary colors that will help guide you to a having a room that is worthy of the cover of a home magazine.
Shaw Flooring and Mannington Floors offer a similar concept for the floors in your home. Again with an uploaded photo of your own room, you can try different shades of wood, tile, and carpeting to help you decide if you’re going to love it before you buy.
Armstrong and GE have interactive design tools for kitchens that allows users to change cabinets, countertops and appliances in 4 different design styles – from casual to contemporary.
Design applications are not limited to just your interior spaces either. Ply Gem and Tapco Group have virtual remodeling apps that enable you to experiment with colors and designs, add windows, doors, and other exterior elements.
With the help of these useful mobile applications, do-it-yourselfers can be more confident that they have made the best decision for each job they plan to tackle!
