21 May, 2019

You might like different interior design styles, materials and shapes, but your home design needs to be a consistent and have cohesive final look.

Because the Homestyler catalog has thousands and thousands of products, and you can now even add your own 3D models in our floorplanner, the choice can be certainly tough.

How to move your steps around the Homestyler catalog and decide what furniture items look best in your next home design project?

Let's see this together.

When you first open the Homestyler furniture catalog, you will see how the items are organized in different categories.

In this way, it will be easier for you to to find products  and accessories related to the particular room you are designing in that moment.

Additionally, you will also have the chance to have a look at our New items (the ones we just added), to the Editor's Pick (that get selected by us on a monthly basis) and the Trends (divided by color schemes).


1. Real furniture models


When you open the Homestyler catalog, the fist section you will see is the one of the Brands.

That's right, the majority of the furniture items you will see in Homestyler are 3D models of real furniture products, made by the most diverse and famous global furniture brand names.

To mention a few: IKEA, Calligaris and Wayfair… But we do have more than 200 furniture brands in catalog! So the choice can really be endless.


2. Generic Items


Together with the real furniture  models, we have prepared some additional products for you, and categorized under the name Generic – In the Brand section.

These items will come in handy when the brands don't offer the products you are looking for.

If what you need is a similar product to the one you find among our Generic options, you can still virtually stage it in your design, and get a general idea how how it will look in your room.

3. Models uploaded


One of our most recent features – And definitely among the ones we are more proud of, is the option users now have to upload up to 100 of their very own 3D models in the Homestyler floorplanner.

If you need instructions on how to do this, please have a look at our previous blog post.

How to place items


When you browse in our catalog and select an item, you will see it appearing in both 2D view and 3D view.

Thanks to the blue arrows around it, you will be able to resize, lift and arrange the item as much as you want. 


How to favorite your furniture


If you feel like you particularly like one of the items in our catalog, and you are willing to use it multiple times in different design, remember to "Favorite" it by clicking on the Heart right below its thumbnail, so it can appear in our special Favorite folder.
