A few months ago we looked at apps that will help you lay out the furniture in your home by creating 3D maps of the interiors. In this edition of the tablet app roundup, we turn our attention to apps that will help to serve as inspiration in interior decorating, so while these two roundups sound similar, they are both handy tools for your interior decorating tool kit.
iPadHouzz Interior Design Ideas: Described as the "Wikipedia of interior and exterior design", this app is chock full of inspiring images that are thankfully nicely organized. Even though I'm not currently planning any renovating or decorating, I enjoy perusing the app and looking at images. FreeInterior Design!: If you're looking for an app that both you and your Android using significant other can peruse, check out this one. While we cannot attest to the quality of the images, it does contain hundreds of interior images and is available for both iOS and Android. $2.99ColorSmart by BEHR™ Mobile: Looking for paint to match a piece of furniture in your room? This app is for you. I like browsing the color palettes and find it useful even if I'm not looking specifically for Behr paint, as it helps me show what I'm thinking as far as a new color for a specific room. Also available for Android. FreeAndroidMastering Interior Design HD: This well reviewed app is a repository of interior decorating images that might be worth a look if you're in need of some inspiration and don't want to spend a cent on an app to find it. FreeInterior Design Gallery HD: The name of the app says it all — this is a gallery of interior design images. Also free, this app is a nice complement to the aforementioned one, and between the two you're bound to find several images worth adding to your inspiration board. FreeMaster- Design Furnish: Sadly this app escaped my notice during our interior decorating roundup a few months ago, during which I focused on mapping out interior spaces. Since I missed it last time, I knew I had to include it in this roundup. This is one well reviewed app that you can use to draw your rooms and furniture, a must when planning out where everything should go! Free
