Posted In Home Technology & Gadgets, iOS devices, iPhone, Mobile - By Techtiplib on Tuesday, April 29th, 2014 With No Comments »

The only thing more exciting than hiring someone to revamp your home is doing everything yourself. You’ll appreciate everything a lot more if you get your hands dirty, but what will you do if you’re not a DIY whiz kid? You don’t have anything to worry about because help is always at hand in the form of home improvement apps. Here is a little taster of what you’ll find in the app store and we’ll talk about the benefits of each one.

5 Fantastic DIY Apps To Help You Tackle A Number Of Jobs Around Your Home

Mark On Call HD

If you want to find the best home improvement advice available you’re better turning to a guru who has done and seen everything before. Mark Lewison is the perfect person to listen to and his app happens to be one of the best on the market. The app will let you start with an empty room after you’ve plugged in the dimensions then you can build it up by adding lots of things. When you’re finished you can take whatever is on the screen and turn it into reality by remodeling your home.

Carpet & Floor Calculator

The foundation of any room is the flooring and you need to get it right before you can do anything else. Do you want to lay carpets or would you prefer to lay wooden flooring? How much of each material will you need depending on the area of each room? It’s hard to work out all of these things on your own and before you walk into Home Depot or a similar store you want to arm yourself with all the knowledge you can acquire, so use the Carpet & Flooring Calculator app to work out what you need in advance.

ID Wood

Every room you walk into might have a different style of wooden flooring and some will look much better than others, but how will you know which type of wood would fit best inside your home? Instead of trying to guess which kind of wood you’ll need to buy you should turn to ID Wood, the ultimate dictionary when it comes to wooden flooring. There are hundreds of different types of wood inside the app and you’ll learn about all the positives and negatives of each one.

Feng Shui Bagua Map

Have you ever taken into consideration the fact laying out your furniture in a certain way could somehow affect your life? It certainly sounds superstitious to say the least, but Feng Shui is an ancient Chinese tradition many people take very seriously. The app will teach you everything you need to know and you’ll have all the information required to make the necessary changes to any room inside your home. If you’re even the tiniest bit superstitious it might be worth giving it a try to see what happens.


The only reason I’m including this app in an article about home improvement apps is because it’s the perfect place to store your ideas when you come across something you’re inspired by, whether that is fancy kitchen cabinets or exotic lighting fixtures. Just stick everything you find inside Moodboard and when you eventually want to make any changes to your home you’ll be able to look at everything that has inspired you in the past and you can try to bring them to life.

Change the way you do things

If you’ve never tested out any DIY apps before I think you’ll be happy when you eventually realize how much help they can be. If you like the sound of the ones we’ve talked about today don’t hesitate to download them, but remember there are a lot more out there and they all tackle different things.
