Online Decorating Resources for Livening Up Your Place

Regardless of whether you’re looking for a new place, or looking to spruce up your current spot, your choice of design is important for your quality of living. Being able to express exactly how you feel through decorations and design can really increase your comfort and ease when you’re at home (and for your guests too!).

So, why not invest some time in decorating your apartment? There are tons of free tools available online that can help make decorating your apartment a breeze. In fact, these tools can provide you with inspiration as well as new techniques that can help you create decor that you didn’t know was possible! Read on to learn about some popular online resources for apartment decorating.

Decorating Resources for ‘Creating’ Your Own Room

3D room planning tools are available online. These tools allow you to create your own room spaces, blueprints, and floor plans. Some of them also have updates that allow you to work with real products and unique colors, which is invaluable for real-life, precise design and decor planning. A few good examples of these online tools are roomstyler 3D home planner and Room Sketcher.

One recommended exercise is to create your own personal “dream floor plan.” Design your ideal apartment space and see how it both reflects and addresses your living needs and desires. That way, when you’re actually doing some apartment shopping, you can see if any existing floor plans match your dream layout!

Get Ideas From Pinterest

Pinterest is a social network that allows users to post, share, and discover images or videos which typically center around arts and crafts. The genius of this website is that anyone can join — this means that the images and projects are home-grown and truly reflect what’s trending at the most grassroots level of decoration and design. You’ll find a ton of DIY projects, decoration tips, and images of interesting furniture.

A word of advice: If you’re going to implement something from Pinterest, you may want to modify it slightly or put your own twist on it. Some people are so active on Pinterest, they can immediately recognize projects originating from there!

Find or Create the Perfect Colors for Your Decor Themes

Choice of color is a hugely important aspect of interior decoration and design. Finding just the right color is one of the most fun (and sometimes most challenging) aspects of design for many. For all of your color selection needs, you can use ColorBlender. ColorBlender is a handy online tool that you can use for discovering, blending, and creating colors.

Color blending and matching is an art and science that uses various numbers, values, and figures for creating colors. If you’re in the know regarding this aspect of colors, you can punch these into ColorBlender; if not, you can always trust your eye to make a match.
