Modsy is a home design solution that uses 3D visualization to help you redesign and redecorate different rooms in your house. (Translation: It’s like hiring an interior designer who is also a computer whiz.) You upload room measurements and a few photos and Modsy provides a 360º rendering of the space, plus two custom design recommendations based on your personal style.

Modsy is a fun, easy way to see your ideas come to life and get design inspiration for that one wall you just can’t figure out what to do with. Check out Sarah’s dining room renderings below!
