Redecorate with iPad

If you want to give your home a makeover, iPad is equal parts handyman and stylist. It can help you find inspiration for every room, visualize ideas before committing to them, and easily take on a project yourself.


Start with a statement piece.

Use Vango Art to see how artwork will look in a room. Simply snap a picture of your wall and swipe through original paintings hanging in your space. The large iPad display lets you see every stunning detail.

Make a plan.
See it take shape.

Create an accurate floor plan without a tape measure. Test bold colors on an entire room before you make the first brushstroke. Rearrange the furniture you have without lifting a thing. Or see how a piece fits before you buy it. With the MagicPlan, Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap Studio™, and Homestyler apps, you can see what your design will look like before committing to it.


Update your home’s look and feel.

The ecobee3 Smart Wi-Fi Thermostat and app let you control the temperature of individual rooms right from your iPad, so everyone feels comfortable at home.

Do it yourself.

Tackle your own projects with the help of the DIYers on Instructables. They’ll walk you through a variety of tasks with detailed step-by-step photos and text. Skitch makes it simple to measure and notate the dimensions of a space. Just snap a photo of the area, add comments with arrows and text, and bring iPad along while you shop for supplies. And if you’ve borrowed a tool that’s new to you, wikiHow can show you the basics for using it properly and safely.


Document your progress.

Use iPad to take and edit incredible photos of every home project from beginning to end. Then share your home’s transformation with your favorite people using iCloud Photo Sharing. Just create a shared album in your library and invite whomever you want, and they’ll see your photos as you upload them.
