Now that Spring is almost here, I’m dying to get my house whipped into shape! I want to change the furniture layout and get new curtains for sure. And with My Deco’s 3D room planner, I can do it without the hassle of moving my furniture a billion times, just trying to get the right configuration.
On the right hand side of the screen, you’ll find a side menu. Choose Design a 3D Room to get started. That opens in another window. It’s really easy to use! You just drag and drop everything and then arrange it to suit your taste.
You start by selecting the shape of the room you want to decorate. You then add alcoves or walls as needed. Next, you furnish the room (if you’re using it for rearranging like I am, just pick furniture that has the same shapes as what you have) and then you can decorate it!
If at any time you want to see your room larger, just click on the Bigger and Better button beneath the 3D image of your room. That will make the 3D image bigger. When you’re finished, make sure you save your design so that you can refer back to it later.
Another great part of this Web site is the ability to create a mood board. A mood board lets you collect ideas or create collages of things you like. They’re helpful when designing a room, because they give you something to refer back to if you get stuck on your design.
For your mood board, all you have to do is drag and drop the items you like from the left side of the screen to the right side. You can then organize them in a collage style that suits you.
Another option you might consider is Furnish a Photo. That lets you take a picture of the room you want to decorate and upload it so that you can make your changes directly to it. The photo can’t be larger than 4 MB.
You can also check out 3D rooms and mood boards other people have made. With the 3D rooms, you can even edit them if you think something else would look better. There are even competitions for the best designed 3D rooms. Have fun!
