Looking to Renovate? Know Exactly What You’re Doing with Homestyler
Every home renovator knows the struggle of staring at a room and having a head full of ideas, but being too fearful to try any of them out. After all, it’s easy to feel discouraged when you spend hours moving the couch to the other side of the room and rearranging your shelves to install the new piece of furniture you’ve just bought, only to realize that the room just doesn’t work. When we unnecessarily spend our hard-earned money and make such a huge effort to get things done, only to put things back the way they were, it can deal a serious blow to our inner renovators.

Luckily, this scenario should happen less, what with many app developers now coming up with great tools that home renovators can use. Last year, Reuters said that Americans spent $130 billion on home remodeling projects, the highest amount since 2007, and at the moment, apps have been found to help ease the financial burdens of home remodeling. Gaming Realms, the owners and operators of Free Bingo Hunter, have said that growth in mobile internet is among the strongest trends in the internet landscape to date, and app developers have begun creating apps to aid any and all problems consumers may face. This is great news for home renovators, as it is thanks to this that the free app Homestyler was born.


Available on both iOS and Android, Homestyler eliminates the guesswork from renovations by allowing users to snap a photo of the room they wish to renovate, and freely experiment with placing 3D renders of the products onto the rooms, and even hanging light fixtures from the ceiling. Products found in the app are branded so you can easily find the ones you want to purchase, after seeing how well they work with the rest of your décor. The app also comes with a built-in design stream, which gives you easy access to inspiring décor ideas from the world’s top interior designers, as well as other users of Homestyler.

What’s more, should you feel the need to contact a professional for help, the app has listings for some great designers in the area, as well as copies of their portfolios so you know exactly what you’re getting into. It’s an app that could certainly evolve to become a home renovator’s best friend – and it’s completely free. Obvious gripes, of course, are that there need to be more products included within the app, because more choices are always better, but as it stands, the app is a great starting point to let your creativity shine.
