Add furniture from the expandable and searchable catalog that is organized into categories such as living room, bathroom, kitchen, bedroom and more. you can change the texture, color, size, location, orientation and thickness of walls, furniture, ceilings and floors. While creating your home design in 2D, you can see the result simultaneously in 3D with an aerial view or explore around it with a virtual visitor type of view.
