4 Useful Decorating Tools

We're excited for our upcoming move from a small 1 bdrm to a 2 bdrm apartment. We spotted housetohome's Decorating Tools and think we'll try some of these tools to help make our move go smoothly and efficiently.

We'd like to paint some walls in our new space, plan the rooms to incorporate all of our existing furniture and make use of our first outdoor space that's just for us. (It's amazing what one compromises when living in a city!) Here's a peek at a few of the tools and how we are looking to use them for our space.

The COLOR PLANNER section offers multiple room templates. We picked this dining room and gray paint color to see how our own dedicated dining room could look.
The PAINT CALCULATOR will help us to plan how much paint to buy. Since we have a small budget we don't want to waste any money on buying too much paint.

Have any of you used calculators to help with your design? If so, tell us about it. Did you find the estimates to be accurate?
