Homestyler.com allows users to design the layout of their "dream home" using Autodesk, Homestyler's free online home-design software. Users start by laying out the dimensions and floor plan of their home and then decorate with real products, including 40,000 color options for finishes.
The site provides a design gallery where users can find inspiration in pictures of real homes. One of the major advantages of using the Autodesk Homestyler software is the ability to try a variety of layouts and design options at no cost. Autodesk Homestyler is also available in an app version that allows users to take a picture of their living spaces and insert 3D models of furniture directly into the photo of the room.
