These days, home design software has been my favorite thing to play around with because my husband and I are planning out our first full build. I have tried a couple of different versions of this tool from a home design app that I can download onto my phone, to a more formalized program that I use on my computer. To be honest, they all do very similar things so be sure that you don't spend a ton of money on a high tech program. The thing that I like most about house design software is that it allows you to see how your home will look (down to the smallest detail like paint color) before you commit to anything.
I can't believe how easy it was to generate this awesome country kitchen plan using home design software that I simply downloaded to my laptop. When I decided to take on our kitchen remodel on my own I consulted with some family friends that had experience with projects like this, and they all recommended looking into some type of interior design software to help with the planning. I downloaded a free program with the best reviews and set off to planning. Without much computer experience I was able to generate this awesome design that replicates the exact dimensions of our space. I couldn't believe that kitchen design software was so detailed or could produce an exact photo (shown here) of what the finished product will look like.
One of my favorite interior decor bloggers was raving about some home design software that she recently worked with to plan out her latest remodel. I had heard about products like this in the past but wasn't sure the best home design software to use or, honestly, how it could benefit me as an amateur DIYer. Boy was I in for a world of surprise. I couldn't believe how effortless it was to enter in my room dimensions and special architectural features then start designing. The floor plan software I used even knew where things like electrical outlets, HVAC registers and switches would be requited for the design to be up to kitchen codes. It was definitely an amazing resource to help a beginner like me embark on a fairly overwhelming project.
If anybody ever asks me the single thing you need most when you are taking on a remodel project, it is definitely home design software. I would be totally lost and overwhelming by the concept of how to design your own house if I didn't have a program like this to help me visualize each piece of the project. Until you are asked to decide on a driveway material, window shape or style of roof line, you do not really know what you want or what your personal tastes are. This is where 3d home design software came in for me. It allowed to me see a picture of each detail I was adding in realtime so that I could really choose which styles I liked and did not like.
I will admit that I am a bit of a nerd when it comes to interior design and DIY projects, so home design software was right up my ally of cool things to try for my next project. I wanted to post my latest bedroom remodel in our new home, alongside the architectural blueprint that my room design software created for me. I went with a very simple program that primarily creates 2-d drawings of a floorpan with furniture and architectural details. I know that some program create virtual walk throughs and other fancy features, but I wanted something simple and to the point to begin. I downloaded this home design software free and immediately was able to jump in and figure it out like a pro.
Home design software is my new best friend after taking on a huge DIY remodel project in the house my partner and I just bought. Several of our friends who are contractors told us that the single thing that we need the most in the planning process is some type of building design software to help us visualize the components we want to add. These images are the renderings of the project we put together, down to every last detail. I am so impressed that you can see your home design 3d with just a click of a button, because it helps you to identify areas or finishes that just don't work together well before you invest the money to purchase and install them.
