6 Online Decorating Tools For A Stylish Home

Re-decorating can be tough. From all the heavy-lifting involved (ugh) to perfecting the little things like wall color and lamp choice, it can be a long process! Whether you’re giving your space a full reboot or just making it feel a little changes to make it more cozy, I’ve rounded up 6 online decorating tools for a stylish home!

Homestyler

Homestyler is an online tool that allows you to plan everything from the flat floor plan of your home to a 3D builder that lets you see exactly where every item will go. The coolest part of Homestyler? Their mobile app allows you to upload a photo of a room in your home, and Homestyler will digitalize it. It’s incredibly realistic too! This handy feature will let you see what it’s like to move things around or change your paint color, without doing the physical work!

This site lets you build your floor plan in just a few easy clicks. Build walls, add furniture, and move it all around just as easily. You can even add your own photos and videos for added realism. FloorPlanner.com also has an easy sharing tool so you can send your creations to your friends, family, or contractor. Their basic plan (which includes one plan and access to their iPhone app) is free!

Design A Room

This app is one of my favorites- it lets you design a kitchen, bathroom, dining room, living room, or bedroom from scratch, or from an existing photo of a room you love. Thinking about changing your flooring? Test out different shades of stain, different grains, and even toggle between hardwood and laminate.

Polyvore

Polyvore isn’t an app like the other options, but it’s perfect for putting the finishing touches on your space. Pick out everything from photo frames, bed frames, even what candle would look best in your home. Add all your dream items in one easy frame to see how the colors work with each other.

Benjamin Moore Painting App

A paint-color switch is a perfect way to give your room a refresh without purchasing all new furniture. Before making the jump – upload a photo of your space on the Benjamin Moore Painting App. Test out exactly what shade will be right for your room! Pro tip: If you’re feeling bored with your current color, try a statement wall! A single wall with a bold color is a great way to add a pop of personality with minimal effort.

Easter Egg Confetti

Side Note before we get started: Easter is going to be here before we know it and it still snowing up here in Iowa (woof). Spring get here soon please.

End Rant – onward to our craft! Confetti meets Easter Egg! Not the same old, same old decorating of eggs this year, my friends

You will need:

  • Eggs (hard boiled or decorating plastic eggs)
  • craft paper
  • paper punch
  • mod podge
  • foam brush

Instructions:

  1. Hole punch your craft paper. I bought my loot here from Target all for $1. Hobby Lobby has lots of craft paper as well.
  2. With your foam brush, wipe the mod podge on a little section of the egg to start
  3. Add the confetti to the section of the egg that you just put mod podge on.
  4. Continue the process until the egg is covered.

Easy Peasy, right? These would look great in a bowl or vase to decorate for Easter this year! For more inspiration and crafty ideas make to sure to visit my Pinterest page.
