If you’re purchasing one of the new homes in Chelsea AL in the latest phase of building at Willow Branch community and you want to start exploring your decorating options, there are a bunch of great apps to help you plan the perfect room layout and design.

If this is your first time creating a floor plan and you’re looking for something simple and straightforward, Magic Plan (available for iOS and Android) is a great starting point. This free app takes the drawing and measuring out of the equation and lets the user create floor plans based on their own photos.

If you want to play around with colors and scale and floor coverings and furniture arrangements and all of those fascinating elements of room design, Rooms is an easy and entertaining way to explore it all. Enter the room’s dimensions and you’re ready to start designing! The app, available for iOS, is free, but you do need to the $3 upgrade in order to actually save your room designs.

For a speedy start, try Room Creator, a free Android app, that potentially lets you create an interior in ten minutes or less. Enter the room’s dimensions and start exploring your options with color, flooring, decor elements, and more. This is a simple and straightforward app to use according to reviews.

Android users may be interested in the Floor Plan Creator app. This free app (in-purchase apps $1-7 per product) provides users with the option of creating 3D floor plans for an even better sense of the design and layout. If you’re going to be purchasing furniture for the room, the app is particularly helpful in letting you know if the furniture will fit the room.

For real accuracy, Amikasa is earning praise and Webby awards for its ability to let users create room layouts with actual furniture and decor offered by a huge variety of brands. This helps take the guesswork out of the design. Plus, the app, which is available for iOS and Android, lets you take a virtual walk-through tour of the room to let you get a feel for the room’s flow. If you want to share it with friends for advice and/or gushing praise, you can share the rooms via social media.

Using any of these apps gives you a chance to play around with options and try variations you may not have considered previously. Explore colors and patterns and furniture styles at your leisure. By the time you’re ready to decorate one of the homes in Chelsea AL from Scotch Homes, you’ll have a clear vision and sense of exactly what you want and need. Of course, if you’re considering one of the homes in the beautiful Willow Branch community, which has just opened Phase III, you should act fast, because there are only 10 home sites remaining.

Client Testimonials

We had a wonderful experience having our home built by Wayne Scotch and the Scotch Homes Team. They were very patient in helping us get ready to start the project and even helped us find the perfect location. He was always available to help us through each step and to explain everything. Wayne's wife, Stefani, works hard behind the scenes to make sure that orders are placed and deadlines are met. She is also available to answer questions and to make recommendations! We felt that our house was always of the utmost importance to Wayne and his team! Now that the house is finished, we are so glad that we had Scotch Homes do the building. The quality and workmanship in our home is very obvious. Wayne and the entire Scotch Homes team are extremely honest, caring people and their Christian concern is a huge part of their business. There could not be a better company or a better builder anywhere than Scotch Homes. We recommend them highly and we are very grateful that we found them!Jim and Maria Brandt
After living in the same home for 28+ years, we decided to build a home. We feel so fortunate to have contracted with Scotch Homes and Land Development for the project. Scotch Homes listened to what we wanted in our new home, provided house plans that met our needs and made wonderful suggestions throughout the building process. We were amazed at the progress each day when we visited the construction site. Scotch Homes constructed a quality built home that we love, in a very convenient location on a great lot! Their team provided us with contacts for selections of our lighting, flooring, etc, emailed me when selections were due, and provided a valued opinion about selections when I asked for her help. Not only are we thankful that Scotch Homes built our home, we also are blessed to now call them our friends.

From the moment we met with Scotch Homes, they listened to all the different things we wanted to include into our new home. They discussed every step. The budgets we had for brick, lighting , flooring and even the landscaping were generous enough that I could stay in budget and not go over.

Besides being a great builder Scotch Homes is a great company that takes pride in their work. I recommend Scotch Homes to everyone I meet. If you have thought about building a home with Scotch Homes ,I promise, you will have a wonderful time!
