The following are some examples of Pinterest.
Pinterest is probably the most popular and well-known app on our list. It’s an online pinboard with crafts, tutorials, and design inspiration. Each idea is presented as a Pin. When clicked, the pin will display an image and a description. Hooks can be saved to customizable boards that users can use to refer back to or share ideas.
Pinterest is a great place to look for remodeling ideas, DIY tutorials, or ways to renovate your home. Pinterest’s visuals will inspire your creativity and help you organize your design ideas.

You may have seen a particular color in the sky or perhaps in someone’s house. Have you ever wished that you could paint it? There’s an app that can do this.
Benjamin Moore Color Capture allows users to take a photo of any color inspiration, and it will instantly produce paint matches out of Benjamin Moore’s 3,300 paint colors.

Renovation projects can sometimes involve more than just a new coat of paint or some new furniture. They may also require a completely new floor plan. If you’ve never created a floor plan before, it can seem like a daunting task. The magician app is there to help you.
Magicplan is a great digital tool for creating professional floor plans in minutes using your smartphone camera.
Stand in the corner of the room that you wish to create a floor plan for, and then use the app to snap a photo. Continue rotating the camera and tapping the button every time it is aligned with a corner in the room until you return to the corner where you started. Magicplan will create a floor plan for your room where you can add objects, electrical outlets, windows, doors, and more. This app can be used to furnish your home, plan DIY projects, get price estimates, or map out your existing floorplan.
You’ll need to use a ruler or tape measure when working on a DIY or interior renovation project. It can be difficult to use a measuring tape when you are working alone, as there is no one to hold the other side. A ruler or yardstick may not be long enough. The Measured app from Lowes can help you if this is what you need.
This app turns your smartphone into a tape measure. Using augmented-reality technology, Measured will tell you how long your kitchen counter is, how high your nightstands are, and the distance between everything in between.
Open the app and point your phone at the starting point of the measurement. Tap the screen. Then, tell the phone to the end measuring point. Tap the screen again.
Hutch is an essential app for interior design, as it lets you “try furniture on” before buying it. You can’t be sure which end tables will look best next to your sectional or what rug will fit in the nursery of your baby. Hutch is a great app that allows you to place furniture and other decor in a room virtually. This gives you a good idea of how the space will appear.
Hutch’s design quiz is another feature that users love. When you sign up, Hutch will guide you through the process to help you narrow down your options for interior design projects. Hutch, for example, will ask which room you are designing, your budget, and your interior design style so that they can make tailored product recommendations. If you find anything you like, all of the items can be purchased directly through the app. This is like an online home decorating dressing room.
