Reviews & Testimonials
This app is great for helping the DIY-er in designing their home. I really helps someone with furniture layouts, materials selections, and scale. Those are some of the things homeowners seem to make mistakes with when buying furniture and remodeling as well.
In the beginning it’s very easy to navigate. It is nice having all of the rooms pop up at once so you can choose which ones you want, how many, and which ones you do not want. Having the grid behind the floor plans is a godsend. You are able to make the rooms perfectly even without the worry of them being a tad off. It is also very nice that there are dimensions, but it would be good if you could double tap on the dimensions and be able to type in the exact numbers you want without expanding and moving walls around yourself.
When you tap on a room, the functions are very helpful. You are able to add a room, label the room any name you would like, split walls, overlay or simply delete if you are not satisfied. When double tapping on a room it gives you the ability to add “objects” or “materials”. When you open the Objects button it shows you the furniture and accessories according to rooms. You also have a doors and windows button for all your exit needs. It’s very extensive, this app seems to have everything, from beds to walk-in closets, to vases and candles. You are able to choose what you want in wood, wallpaper, paint, tiles, fabric, marble, exterior, and metals. It is a very nice and functional app that allows you to space plan to your liking.
I think it will be a hit with homeowners looking to design an interior space themselves!
Selected for Top 50 Must have iPad app. Other apps in the list are Facebook, Skype, Google Chrome, AllRecipes, Dropbox and other top of the line apps we use every day.
This is a work in progress. But I’m using Interior Design for iPad app to create the floor plan of the house I grew up in.
I use Interior Design for iPad app every day, I like it so much!!
Love this app! If you like decorating you will love this! Would like to see some shutters for outside of house. Also some hobby items would be great, or the ability to take a pic of something and use as a object not material. Other than that I think its well worth the price you pay. I have spent hours designing our house. Good way to try out colors and layouts without the cost of mistakes! Keep up the good work guys!!
