Chairish is similar to IKEA, but with this app you get to buy items from individuals as well as a store. That makes it possible for you to access a wider range of products through Chairish, including:

  • Antique furniture
  • Artwork from professional painters, sculptors, and designers
  • Knickknacks that will add flair to your home

In most cases, you will have to pay for shipping and handling, but sellers can also offer a local pickup option. This is a convenient way to avoid shipping fees, especially when you buy from sellers located in or near your city.

Chairish is more than just a place to purchase new and antique items for your home. You can also use it to make money from things that you no longer want. If you have a table that doesn’t match your new decorating scheme, then you can sell it on Chairish. It’s free to list items on the app, and you get to keep 80 percent of the selling price.

Mixing and matching colors is essential to making your home look beautiful. The last thing you want to do, however, is buy new furniture, decorations, and paint without comparing color schemes. What looks good in your head doesn’t always translate so well to reality. That could mean that you waste a lot of money on ideas that aren’t as attractive as you imagined.

The ColorSchemer app gives you an opportunity to see exactly what various colors will look like together. You can use it to automatically generate concepts based on complementary, monochromatic, and triad colors.

ColorSchemer also lets you draw inspiration from previous concepts made by over 450,000 members of its COLOURlovers community. If you see something that you like, you can copy it or make a slight alteration to get the perfect color scheme for your room. In the end, this app can help you save a lot of time and money.

Available for: iPhone and Android devices

Just because a piece of furniture looks beautiful in the showroom doesn’t mean that it will look equally nice in your home. In some ways, you can’t really know what a couch or chair will look like in your living room until you move it in.

For obvious reasons, shoppers don’t want to move heavy pieces of furniture into their homes before they know whether the furniture will look attractive. Until recently, people had to rely on educated guesses. Today, they have SnapShop.

SnapShop is an augmented reality app that lets you see what new furniture will look like in your home. You just choose the item you might want to buy, open the app, point your cell phone’s camera where you want to place the furniture, and your display will show you the piece placed within the space you chose. The combination of a fast, reliable network and smartphone with large display and high-definition camera makes SnapShop a perfect home decorating app. If you still aren’t sure whether you like what you see, you can share the image with friends to get feedback. It’s one of the most effective ways to choose furniture without unnecessary lifting.

The next time you want to make some changes to your house or apartment, these four inspiring apps will help make the job easier. Instead of doing all the work on your own or hiring an expensive decorator, download these apps to revitalize your home.
