A free room layout planner app is a great way to design a room quickly or plan a remodel. In minutes, using an app, you can easily rearrange your room. You can also plan a design for every room in your home from your computer, phone, or tablet without knowing a thing about home design software.

How do you make a room layout? With each of the free online room layout planners (most offer 2D and 3D room planning), you start by laying out your room's dimensions. Make the area as large or as small as you like, add interesting corners or walls, and do everything you can to make it look just like the actual room you want to build.

Add features such as doors, closets, and windows before moving on to adding paint, flooring, furniture, and accessories by just dragging and dropping them into your online room. Deciding where to put furniture in the room is personally customizable, depending wholly on your room size, preferences, needs, and style.

Each layout planner lets you design a room for free, but they all have different tools that work slightly differently. Read on to see which room layout planner meets your needs best.

    Plan Your Room

    Plan Your Room is a free online room layout planner that will help you design a simple room with ease. You'll love how simple the tools are and how easy it is to get the results you're looking for with your project.

    What Plan Your Room is missing in bells and whistles it makes up for in the fact that it can get the job done in a small amount of time. The walls are easily draggable, and the furniture and other objects are neatly organized off to the left.

    Also, the easy-to-use interface makes it a breeze to work with, all the objects you see available are the ones you can use, and none of them are secretly only available after you pay. User registration is only necessary if you want to save the design.

    Home Design 3D

    Home Design 3D

    Home Design 3D is a room design app that offers free and paid versions. The "freemium" option works great, but you're limited since you can't use the save feature. You'll also see ads and can't import or export your work. But, what's really great about it is you can work in 2D and 3D, and you can "visit" your room in real-time by walking through the space and visualizing it better by taking a 3D tour.

    It's easy to use on smartphones (iOS and Android), tablets, and PC and Mac desktops. It's a very popular app with more than 40 million downloads.
