One of the biggest challenges in home remodeling is envisioning the finished project. Making the wrong design and product selection decisions can lead to project delays, expensive changes and overall dissatisfaction with the process and end result. With Autodesk Homestyler, homeowners can easily explore and experiment with different brands, styles, colors and layouts before they start a project, thereby increasing confidence in their decisions and ultimately their satisfaction with the end result. With no training required, users can create floor plans with drag-and-drop rooms, doors and furnishings; easily experiment with finishes and visualize design ideas in 3D with a single click; and easily share designs with friends, family and professionals to get their feedback. The Autodesk Homestyler service is free and accessible from most standard Web browsers with no download or installation necessary.
