3 Best Renovation Apps to Have in Your Pocket

From colour swatches to room ideas and measurements, these apps make the project easier.

Getting a fresh new look in your home can feel like a new lease on life. You didn’t have to travel anywhere or move and you’re looking at a whole new scene.

It can be a complicated process, though. How can you simplify it? You can make it all easier by using some tech tools to help you refine your process.

If you’re looking for inspiration on where to start and what to do, Houzz Interior Design Ideas is your tool. Named a best app for home improvement by both the New York Times and CNN, Houzz provides you with millions of design ideas through photos of different rooms and styles.

Choose your favourites and share them with friends and family. Draw directly on the photos when adding your own ideas.

Looking to shop? You can do that through the app as well, along with hiring professionals like contractors and architects, and gathering feedback from Houzz’s online community, on your ideas.

If you’re doing the project yourself, Photo Measures is useful to have in-hand. It allows you to take a photo of a room or object, and draw its measurements directly on the photo.

Painting? For those who’ve decided to use Behr products to colour the walls, ColorSmart is great. Take a photo of your room and have the app match the color to the closest option Behr sells.

You can also scan the back of a Behr color swatch to access the color name or number.
