FREE Home Design Tools To Help You Design & Decorate Any Room In Your House

I got an email from Jeroen Bekkers, the creator of today:

Hi there. We made an online tool to create and share interactive floorplans. It can be found at I thought you might like it as we see a lot of people creating cabin/log homes with it.”

So I spent the afternoon playing with this free online tool.


Check it out… Highlights:

  • It’s FREE.
  • You can save up to 5 layouts.
  • It’s easy to share your room designs with friends & family, or make your layouts viewable to the public.
  • On first glance, it was a little intimidating, with no real instructions. Just do what I did: jump in and start clicking & dragging and see what happens!

TIP: Don’t skip the “create” box that pops up on your screen. There are some helpful hints for using this program in there!

  • After you place any object in your room, you can click once to change the dimensions, colors, etc of that item.
  • For more helpful how-to’s and tips, check out their blog.

The verdict: I like it!!! is very flexible and allows you to change lots of minute details that other free programs don’t.

It’s a professional design tool that makes designing any room a cinch.
