Design Apps Your Apartment

Moving into a new apartment is exciting, but what if you have little time, interest, or aptitude when it comes to decorating? Watching home DIY shows sends you into a cold sweat and you are too busy to pour through websites and magazines. What do you do? Well, you can create a stunning apartment that you will love to come home to with your phone. That’s right. There are numerous apps available to help you choose furniture, lighting, accessories, and more. Here are a few popular apps that can be used on Android and iOS.

Foyr Neo

Foyr Neo is the preferred design app of more than 50,000 interior designers worldwide. You can create floorplans in seconds with 3D drag-and-drop models, so you know exactly what your room will look like. While Neo is targeted toward professionals, design enthusiasts will enjoy the robust features this app has to offer. A 14-day free trial is available, then there are three monthly membership tiers, including one for personal use.


With Amakasa, you can choose a color palette, select furniture, and design a functional layout.  If you don’t like it, then it’s easy to change and you haven’t set foot in one store or spent a dime. This app is available for Android and iOS and costs 99 cents. That’s right. Other perks include a newsletter and space to share ideas with fellow Amikasa users.

IKEA Home Planner 2.0

BEFORE you tote that IKEA furniture home and begin the assembly marathon, it would be helpful to see how it will look in your apartment. This app is free to download on Android or iOS devices, and you can choose any room in your apartment to furnish and design. Next, select items from IKEA’s extensive catalog to try them on for size in your floorplan. This will save you time and energy by eliminating a hike through the store or repacking and returning merchandise that didn’t work out.


You probably have a Pinterest board for your hundreds of recipes and other ideas, but if you enjoy browsing, you will find tons of ideas that you can tweak and make your own. Just keep in mind that these are only ideas and the app doesn’t include features like 3D renderings, etc. Pinterest is free and available for Android and iOS systems.

Apartment design and decoration have some limitations as you probably won’t be able to change the paint colors or flooring, but you can choose furnishings and accessories that reflect your style. If the process seems overwhelming, these apps can simplify the process. If you are into design, then you can polish and perfect your ideas, and then bring them to life.
