Before moving in, I took photos of the unit (old tenant’s things and all) and measured all the walls and windows. The tool lets you click and drag walls around to fit any irregularly shaped rooms, or specify wall length and height. You may not find exact matches for your home materials but you can get pretty close. There were no options for steel floors that I could find, for example, but dark grey brick replicated the feel.
Fed up with free tools, I gave paid services a go. I was first introduced to e-interior design startup Havenly a few years ago at SXSW. The service promises to create a mood board, layout, and a shopping list to help make implementing the design easy — all under a flat rate instead of an hourly bill you might get with an in-person designer. (Havenly starts at $19 for a consultation, while the full experience is $169 for a bare room, with help on where to lay out each piece.)
Consider the Custom Builder a craftsman…. they have a professional Design Team who works alongside you to create a ‘one of a kind’ home to suit your wish list, your budget and your block of land.
I applaud the folks working with AR to create interesting use cases, like on-location work training. But kitschy applications like this are just… not very fun to use? Holding my arm out for minutes on end gets tiring fast, especially when you have to browse through thousands of items just to find the one thing that might work in your space.
Wherever you might be on your journey home, I can’t wait to show you the way, or even do the tough parts for you! Let me lead you straight to the classic, forever space you’ve been waiting for.
You see, the way we live continues to change…. housing is not just about a roof over your head…. it’s about making a statement, it about lifestyle.
