We curated the top five must-have apps for interior designers that can help streamline the design process. There are so many apps available to help you create the perfect space – all you need to do is unlock your smart device! From layout planning, to paint selection and finding inspiration, there are countless uses for these programs. Below we’re sharing some of our favourite and most-used apps to save you time and make communicating design ideas easier.

Color Capture

Is your orchid the most flawless shade of mauve? Would the cognac colour of that leather shoe be absolutely perfect for your new dining room? Snap it, capture it and paint it. This app by Benjamin Moore makes it as simple as the press of button to find a paint colour that matches the hue that inspired you.

Forget the measuring tape and get familiar with the MagicPlan app instead. It measures your room simply by taking photos of the space. Carry your floor plan and measurements wherever you go to make selecting new pieces easy. Plus, you can add them to the app as you go, which is great for someone who is breaking up the shopping over multiple trips or the person who likes to freshen up a space seasonally (or more often!)
