Our 5 Favorite Apps for Redesigning Your Apartment

Technology is amazing. It simplifies every aspect of life, from simple tasks to large projects.

For example, it has revolutionized the apartment redesign process.

In the past, redesigning your apartment was a huge hassle. But today, everything you need to revamp your home is available right on your phone. It’s never been easier!

There are a ton of apartment redesign apps out there. But we’ve weeded through them all to find the five best ones. You’re going to love them!

(Heads up: You might want to invest in an Apple device if you don’t have one already. Some of these apps only work on iPhones and iOS devices.)

1.‌ ‌‌Homestyler

Homestyler is first on our list because it’s a professional-grade app that’s simple enough for a novice to use.

All you have to do is upload a picture of your apartment. Then, you can choose furniture pieces from a wide selection to see how they’ll look in your home.

The app is free to use. It offers users the ability to create their dream room, save it, and share it with others. You can send your images to a friend for a second opinion, or even forward it to an interior designer to get some professional input.

For serious designers, there are weekly contests to see who can design the best room. You may not be on that level yet, but after you play around with Homestyler enough, you might get hooked!

When you’ve made your final decision, you can purchase those items or similar ones directly from the app itself.

With a simple yet sophisticated design, this app is an apartment designer’s dream!

2. HomeDesign3D

HomeDesign3D is our favorite app to play with. It’s fun, easy to use, and doesn’t require an internet connection (after the initial download).

The app is set up like an architectural blueprint. You draw up a 2D floor plan, and the app turns it into a 3D model. It’s amazing!

Once you have a model, you can furnish it with any number of pieces from the app’s furniture collection. There are thousands of options, many from top brands.

And don’t worry about falling in love with a piece you can’t buy. The app only lets you decorate with pieces that are currently available, so if you like something, you can buy it immediately.

3. Houzz

If you have an Apple TV, you can sit on your couch and use Houzz to design your room on the big screen. If not, any other Apple product will do.

Houzz does more than just show you what your apartment would look like with specific furnishings. The app also connects you with local professionals who can do the heavy lifting for you.

Using the app is simple:

First, upload photos of your home. Then, spend some time browsing and playing with the product selection. Houzz gives you over 10 million products to choose from.

If you want design tips or information on a specific design style, you can read articles directly in the app. You can also talk to experts and get advice from other users on the Houzz discussion forums.

When you’re ready to turn your plans into reality, the app will connect you with builders and decorators in your area. These professionals are pre-vetted for reliability, so you can be sure you’re hiring reputable people.

4. Havenly

Havenly may be the most personalized of all the interior design apps. It’s super easy to use, too.

Before you do any designing, you’ll have to take a quick quiz. This questionnaire helps the app to identify your design style. It uses your answers to create a personalized catalog of furniture pieces for you to choose from.

You also have access to an expert interior designer who now knows your preferences and can help you more thoroughly.

Serious about redesigning but not sure about your furniture choices? You can upgrade to a premium account for a small fee (oodles less than it would cost to hire an in-person interior designer) and get custom design solutions from a pro designer.

5. Chairish

This award-winning app has been featured in Architectural Digest, Apartment Therapy, and Lonny. And it’s available on both Apple and Android devices!

Chairish is the go-to place to buy vintage furniture and one-of-a-kind decorations. No matter what style you’re looking for, you’re sure to find something you love!

Using the app, you can see how a piece would look in your space. That way, you don’t buy anything that looks out-of-place in your home.

When you find a piece you like, you can make an offer on it. If the seller accepts your offer, it’s yours!

Chairish is just as popular with sellers as it is with buyers. So if you have some vintage furniture that you’re ready to part with, you might be able to sell it here!

In Conclusion

Gone are the days where it costs an arm and a leg to decorate your apartment. Now, you can get expert advice for free (or the cost of an app upgrade).

Show the app your room, pick pieces that interest you, and see what they’ll look like in your apartment without spending a dime.

Love it? Buy it! It’s as simple as that.
