Can you recommend any online room design apps?


So I am trying to move a hall bath into the area pictured to make the hall bath bigger, as well as to make room for our master bathroom where the current bath is. Problem is I'm having a hard time drawing the plans on paper, and would like to make something 3d to provide for blueprints. If any of you have recommendations for a program you have used, whether free or not please let me know. Thanks.

a search of the forum will provide you numerous recommendations, the question was just asked the other day.

one thing to consider is you enter garage into the application you get garage coming out. In other words you have to enter the correct information to get the correct results, if you make a mistake you get a mistake.

FYI, for a simple 3d modelling application I like Sketchup

Good luck!

I like Sweet Home 3D for floorplans and 3D views. Low learning curve and lots of symbol sets you can download if you need them. It is free, cross platform and with a large open source development community. It can be as accurate as you want to make it. It does nice take off lists as you go.

I would not use it for detailed construction drawings, etc. though.

Nothing beats good old fashioned graph paper and a pencil with an eraser. It will quickly let you know if you have the proper clearances for your ideas to work.

There are 3D software available in the online market. You can use it modelling and you can have a clear picture, it saves your time as well.
