If you’re interested in doing a little home remodeling, or simply want to know what the living room would look like painted in a different color, try Homestyler.com.
It’s a clever new way to design or remodel your home in 2D or 3D, right in a web browser window. Or, with the Homestyler app, right on your iPad. We Mincey folk know what it’s like to repaint and remodel, and this is the most fun you’ll have with either.
Home Sweet Home
Homestyler gives you simple tools to create a 2D or 3D design– of a new home, or your current home, or someplace you plan to move to soon.
Everything is drag and drop, too. Rooms, doors, windows, appliances, furniture. Within seconds you can have a view of your home and change the wall color or flooring.
Homestyler comes with gallery designs and a grid. Simply drag and drop room layouts, interior walls, corners, whatever it takes to mimic your home.
The gallery comes complete with furniture and layout options for master bedroom, nursery, deck or terrace, family room, kitchen, entertainment room and more.
Want to see what your kitchen would look like after the remodeling? Homestyler does it.
Here’s what it looks like on the iPad.
These are not just clumsy drawings of furniture, either. Truly, this is a case where you get more than you pay for (Homestyler is free).
Use your iPad to snap a photo of a room in your home and Homestyler creates a 3D version.
That’s a good way to see what a room will look like with a fresh coat of paint in a different color.
Or, if you’re interested in a full on remodel job, Homestyler gives you new rooms and new furniture to move around, including light fixtures, rugs, paintings, mirrors, and other home furnishing accessories.
The Homestyler design stream is where you browser for other photos, remodeling articles, how-to articles.
Yes, Homestyler shares, too. Facebook, email, et al. And, when you get itchy to see how much your remodeling might cost, there’s a portfolio page of professional designers near you. Homestyler is a pleasure to use, but not quite as full featured as the web site (and I need to issue a Flash alert for that).
