  • If you're thinking about doing some remodeling, room rearranging, or you just want to daydream about it in 3D glory, Roomle is a polished, free web tool for designing in three dimensions.

    Roomle is a layout editor that supports both 2D and 3D views for easy visualization of your creations. You can use Roomle for something as simple as a quick mock-up or set the scale and get to work creating a full layout complete with furnishings. Roomle comes with hundreds of items like doors, windows, chairs, and even small details like potted plants and rugs.

    Roomle requires no signup, but we recommend creating an account—you can't save your creations without one. You can save your plans, export them as images, and share them with friends.
