The Best Interior Design Apps That You Need To Know About

Interior design apps have come a very long way since they were first launched. Today, these advanced applications can help you design and decorate your (and your clients’ homes) quickly and more efficiently.

From finding design inspiration to creating detailed layouts, the possibilities are endless with interior design apps. Most of these apps are available for free on iOS and Android, making them easy to download and use.

So without further ado, here’s a list of our top picks of the best interior design apps available!

The Top 7 Interior Design Apps for 2023

Our team at Render Atelier consists of some of the best interior designers and digital artists in the industry. Using our knowledge of the field, we have created a shortlist of the top seven interior design apps for you to explore. Let’s get started!

1. Curate

Curate is a functional mobile tool that allows users to virtually place any artwork on a wall of their choice and view it in the correct scale. Users say the app is intuitive and easy to use.

Curate is handy for galleries looking to create virtual exhibitions, artists who want to display their works digitally and of course, interior designers who want to help their clients choose the right artwork for their homes.

Curate is available on the iOS App Store and can be downloaded for free.

2. Pinterest

What list of interior design apps would be complete without Pinterest? While the platform features images on nearly every subject, it is famously used by interior artists and home decor enthusiasts to create mood boards by “pinning” reference images that appeal to them.

You can scroll through the app to find inspiration when you’re facing a creative block or share boards with the clients to get a better idea of their design preferences.

The Pinterest App is available on the Google Play Store as well as Apple’s App Store and is free to download.

3. Houzz

Lovingly referred to as “the Wikipedia of interior design,” Houzz is an app that every interior designer needs in their arsenal. It boasts of an extensive library containing 16 million high resolution images of interiors. You can also shop from a collection of over 10 million products, read customer reviews, and browse their featured sales.

The best part? The View in My Room 3D feature that allows you to see what products would look like in the space you’re designing by using augmented reality tech.

Houzz is available on iOS and Android and is free to use.

4. Color Capture

The color of the walls plays an integral role in determining the aesthetic and cohesiveness of a home. Color Capture is a great House Design App that helps you find the best color palette for a project. All you need to do is snap a picture of a color you love and the app will give you paint options to match it.

It is available on Google Play and the iOS App Store and is free to download.

5. Home Design 3D

A recent launch, Home Design 3D is a valuable tool for architects and interior designers alike. It allows you to create basic but accurate 3D floor plans. You can import your premed floor plans, edit their dimensions, adjust the ceiling height, remove or add walls etc.

Of course, if you’re looking for professional quality interior renderings, we recommend speaking with a reputed rendering agency.

Home Design 3D is available on Google Play and the iOS App Store. It costs $9.99 to purchase and download it. 

6. BrightNest

This app is a little different than all the other ones we mentioned. BrightNest functions as a virtual personal assistant that helps you keep tasks in order and give you reminders to make sure your work is on track.

As an interior designer, you have several deadlines to meet and this handy little app can help you stay organized and on schedule.

BrightNest is available on iOS and Android and is free to use.

7. MagicPlan

MagicPlan helps you take measurements and draw floor plans in minutes. Its advanced technology computes distances and spaces accurately by analyzing pictures. You can also upload a picture of your space and the app will convert it into a floor which you can export as a PDF, JPG, or DXF file.
