If you are planning to change your kitchen furniture and cupboards, there are several do-it-yourself (DOY) stores and furniture stores that provide cheaper options than the regular stores. One of them is IKEA, the Sweden company specialized in DOY furniture.
It not only has several options, with 23 different styles, from the white Lidingö to the black Applad, but also an incredible variety of appliances and possibilities. It also has a Home Planner 3D, a simple but effective design software which allows you to draw and get a full 3D view of your new kitchen. A detailed overview of your planned kitchen in 3D is a great way to get a feeling for what your kitchen will look like when it is actually in place at home. the IKEA Home Planner Tool has a user-friendly interface, designed for non-experienced “kitchen planners”.
It also gives you the possibility of creating a detailed floor plan and switch to the 3D plan view. Once you begin drawing your new kitchen – adding the exact measurements of your walls and of the windows, doors, cabinets, appliances etc and their location within the drawing, your 3D picture will update accordingly.
To get things better, a complete product list is included. As you build and design your new kitchen, the planner tool adds a detailed list of all products you choose to include. Name, product description, main material and price – all basic information you need. It is a very easy program to download and use. It works with basically any computer and operating system and is really user-friendly.
