Plan Rooms and Gardens - Friday Time Killer

Posted on 4.03.2008
It's Friday afternoon - almost time to go home, to the pub, out to dinner ... and hopefully not work late. But there are still a few hours to kill. Here are a couple of sites to help you get there. I'm making some upgrades to the old homestead, so forgive me if I've let my personal life influence my work.

Mydeco - Furniture Fix for the Decorati: This is a complete room planner. Enter your room dimensions (or pick from pre-loaded layouts), drop in doors, windows and other architectural features and start planning. You can choose from a variety of furnishings like beds, dressers, chairs, televisions, even radiators. You can also paint, lay carpet, tiling and wallpaper. One neat feature is that everything you decorate with is a real item available for purchase, or just estimating costs. It's not hard to lose some time here.

Small Blue Printer's Garden Planner: This one is for the green thumbs out there. Similar to Mydeco (but you can't buy trees, shrubs or ponds), start with an area by entering the size you're working with or start with an existing plan. Lay down sod, add trees, shrubs, ground cover (stoned walkways, etc.), flowers, garden furniture ... if it's found in a garden, most of it is here. You can fully customize by using the "tools" section.
