Use the restlessness from being cooped up in the house all winter to tackle a few home improvement projects and have your house ready for spring. Here are three apps to help with inspiration.
A popular app with more than 100,000 ratings in the Apple app store, Houzz lets users save photos for inspiration, find products and find local professionals. All areas of home improvment have a place on the app, from redecorating to building additions.
Houzz also runs an online network, accessible via desktop.
The app is available in both Apple and Android stores.
You can't rip out that wall, but you can paint it.
Lots of paint brands have their own custom apps (Benjamin Moore's Color Capture, Behr's ColorSmart, etc.) but MyPantone lets users save colors based on their Pantone ID and create color palettes from inspiration pieces and even suggests complimentary colors.
The app is available for $9.99 in the Apple store and $7.99 in the Android store.
You figured out your project. Now you actually have to accomplish it.
Save money (and storage space) with iHandy Carpenter. The app turns your phone into a plumb bob, level and ruler among other tools.
iHandy Carpenter is available for $1.99 in both Apple and Android stores.
