4th Home Design 3d - interior design

This is an interior design application that provides a professional result. We can build our own 3D model of the interior, change the heights and thickness of the walls and add windows and doors. Then get down to decorating and placing furnishings. All these elements are finished blocks. Then the model can be visualized with photorealistic 3D rendering.

5. magicPlan

The app itself is free, but if you intend to use it regularly, you will have to buy a subscription(only two projects are free).
By moving your phone, you can scan a room and then the windows and doors, resulting in a dimensioned projection. Later, of course, we can edit it. It is best if there are no large objects in the room (and especially its corners).

6. IKEA Place - furnishing

Before entering the vast maze that is IKEA, we can figure out what really fits in our home with the IKEA Place app. Using augmented reality technology, we can place the furniture or lamps of our choice in our own interior. It doesn't necessarily have to come down to just IKEA products, we can always see how a particular style of furniture, will look in our apartment. When we find something we really like, we can buy it directly from the app or find a nearby store that has it in stock.

9th Sketchup - 3D modeling

Thanks to this application (which is even used in architectural offices) we can easily obtain an accurate 3D model of an area or even a single object. The unlimited ability to add models of various objects, as well as existing products created by manufacturers, makes it possible for us to very accurately render the appearance of our room or even the entire home environment.
SketchUp offers many levels of sophistication, with plans and subscriptions. However, if our needs are not complicated, SketchUp offers an online-only service through which we can design a 3D model. This option of the program is completely free. However, if we want to have the applications on our computer, a 30-day trial version is also available. We can install the application on our phone, which will be compatible with the PC version.
