Designing a new space in your home rarely goes as planned. There is always something out of place or oversized that you just cannot seem to work into the layout. Choosing paint colors or peel and stick wallpaper and pieces to collectively obtain a certain atmosphere has been made into a much easier task through the advances of smartphone technology.
You are no longer tasked with moving the couch seven times before you find the right place. You now have the ability to pick, choose, swap, and tweak every little detail of your design from the palm of your hand. Check out a few of the most functional and popular mobile apps available in home design.
