Many home decorating projects can be done without much advance planning. But if you want to make a more substantial change, you really shouldn’t start until you have a floor plan drawn up.
For decades, architects and engineers have been taking advantage of computer aided design (CAD) for drafting and planning beautiful homes. But for the non-professional, CAD programs often seem too technical and difficult to learn. So instead you might spend hours drawing a rudimentary sketch on graph paper, erasing what didn’t look right, redrawing, and repeating.
Now there is a wide variety of easy-to-use home design and decorating software to choose from. These programs and online tools make it fun to plan and actually envision changes to your home’s design. No software program is perfect for every project, and some are more user-friendly than others. So it’s a good idea to spend some time looking at the various options.
If you don't want to purchase design software, there are many to try for free.
