19 High-Tech Interior Design Tools

From Color Scheme Generators to Virtual Decorating Apps

— August 11, 2015 — Tech
These high-tech interior design tools make it easier to redecorate any room in your home. Whether you've moved into a new place or you are overhauling an old room, redecorating can be a costly and time-consuming process. These clever interior design tools make it faster and easier to redesign a given space.

One of the first things to consider when redecorating a space is the color of the walls. If you plan on using a new color, you might need a little bit of help to ensure that you find the perfect shade before you pick up your paintbrush. Some of these virtual painting tools include online color scheme generators, light-sensitive paint pickers and nature-inspired color palettes.

Beyond paint, there are a number of other factors to consider when overhauling a space. If you're trying to figure out what furniture might suit a particular room, there are a number of virtual decorating apps that will help you decide before you buy. If you're interested in changing the actual structure of a room, you can use high-tech interior design tools such as 3D modeling apps and virtual surveying platforms in order to better visualize your final project.
