Zillow Digs

Zillow currently provides a price estimate on the majority of real estate in America.  Their website provides an online, searchable database easily accessible to all.  They now offer an app for home improvement and design.  It allows you to choose an array of interior projects that matches your price point.  Zillow digs also provides advice from real designers and allows you to share with others on social media.


This app allows for you to view 1,500 different shades of Sherman-Williams’ paint inventory and will allow you to apply it to any of its virtual sample rooms.  Not only do you get to see how different colors look in different rooms, it will also analyze colors of any photo on your smartphone and inform you of what shade of paint it is.


Houzz contains more than 5 million high resolution home images that are tagged and organized according to style, room and location. You can search your favorite looks and save them in an “idea book” to later refer to when needed.  It also includes real-life design consultants that you can share and request ideas from.

Other top home designing applications that you can download are Homestyler Interior Design, Curate, Like That Décor and Furniture, MagicPlan, MyPantone, BrightNest and Home Design 3D Gold.
