There’s an app for that right? Seems like there’s an app for everything these days and your home is no exception. We have gone through some of the top Home Apps out there for your smart phones and tablets and put together some of our favorites. Everything from matching your wall paint with that red pillow on your couch to finally really finding out if that picture your husband hung is actually straight. Did you know there are Apps out there that can help you make sure you’re up to date with all the latest interior design trends and that can help you price out that power tool you’ve been eyeing?

iHandy Carpenter ($1.99 for iPhone)
This is the first no weight tool kit! It offers 5 tools in 1 App: Plumb Bob, Surface Level, Bubble Level Bar, Steel Protractor and Steel Ruler. This is great for picture hanging and those on the spot jobs where you just can’t be bother to run out to the garage and hunt down that huge level you have somewhere.

Sherwin Williams Color Snap (Free for iPhone)
This is our personal favorite! You can take any object in your life (well almost any object) and this App will match the color of that object for you with a paint color.  Get inspired and use this to help you plan out your next big design job. You can also use this App to research paint colors you already know you want and to help you put together color schemes.

Dream Home ($.99 for iPhone)
Ever wonder what that piece of furniture or latest design trend would look like in your living room? Dream Home will help you visualize all of that. It’s specially designed for you to help integrate the latest interior design trends into your life and home. Take photos, move furniture around and look at colors for the different rooms in your home.


The Home Depot (Free for iPhone)
The Home Depot just got smarter with this App. Research and purchase all your home tools and needs online. You can browse and shop for appliances, bath, building materials, decor, doors and windows, electrical and so on! Now when you’re in the store you can also scan items to obtain product information and inventory status as well.
