Free DIY Tools and Calculators

by Dinah Wulf

Today I thought I’d put some of my favorite free DIY Tools and Calculators together to help you out on your next DIY project! The style quizzes are fun and the calculators can come in handy. Have fun!

 

HGTV’s What’s Your Design Style Quiz

This is a simple ten question quiz to help you with your design style. Many of which is a choice of photos you choose that bests fits your fancy.

 

What’s Your Decorating Personality Quiz from Real Simple

This decorating personality quiz consists of nine multiple choice questions asking, “Which item do you like best?”  They appear to be random pictures, however represent something much more.  You calculate your style by counting mostly A’s, B’s, C’s, or D’s.  My problem? I had 3 A’s, 3 C’s, and 3 D’s… doh!

 

BHG Design a Room Layout

This Design a Room Layout tool is awesome! You start by selecting from four different room layouts. Once you pick a room you can reshape it to fit your room exactly!  You add furniture piece by piece from a wide selection. You can rotate and alter the dimensions of each piece of furniture as well! Brilliant!

 

BHG My Color Finder

I don’t know about you, but deciding on what color to paint a room is stressful! This free tool from Better Homes and Gardens is so helpful and useful. Find colors for both interior and exterior, room by room, and you even have the option to upload your own photo. If you don’t have a photo there are several selections for you to choose from that best fits your style.
