Hiring an interior designer is the foolproof way to go in designing your home. Let’s admit it though, it can get crazy expensive.

So those who can’t afford a designer go the DIY route with their favorite interior designing app for ideas and inspirations. A home design app can never replace a professional designer, but if you have budget considerations, it might do the trick.

We tried using some of the best interior design apps, and in this review, we’ll let you know how they turned out.

 


1. Pinterest

Pinterest AppIf you have just moved to your new home or are planning to renovate your house, I’m sure you’ve headed on to Pinterest one time or two.

There are so many great interior ideas on Pinterest and most users find themselves spending hours and hours scrolling down the app. It can get addicting.[1]

This design app allows you to search for room inspirations and interior design ideas. You can then save them to your own board where you can compile the designs that fancy you and create a mood board to whatever your home project is.

You can also take a photo of your design project and pin it to your board and share it to the Pinterest community for inspiration.

I used to create my mood boards the practical (and slightly drawn-out) way: ripping out pictures I liked from magazines and pasting them on to a board alongside swatches of different fabrics.

Although that method is not without its charms, today I’ve streamlined the process hugely by using the online service Pinterest: a super smart and speedy visual discovery tool that helps me put my boards together digitally. It saves a lot of time – and a lot of paper! – Carolyn Bailey, Good Housekeeping
