7 Home Redecorating Apps to Try

lady-and-purple-appsOur smart phones and tablets have become the de facto source of information and a resource for solving arguments in the pub.

Case in point, stop reading this blog and check how many tabs or web pages you have open at this current moment. As I write this I have more than six tabs open with varying pages related to work. On my phone I have seven different tabs and on my tablet I have at least 10 different tabs open at any time. My phone has pages of apps related to various things such as health apps, social apps and of course Angry Birds. It has become more common place for us to search on our phone as we always have it to hand.

Chill recognised the fact that people have more means to connect to the internet than ever before which is why we released our responsive website to suit what ever device you might choose to visit through.

But phones and tablets are not just useful for solving the argument of what is the name of the latest Tom Hank’s movie or what was Liverpool’s line up at the weekend. With 37% of people searching for DIY via their phone or tablets, we have put together a quick list of some of the apps we use at home to help us be more productive or make a decorating decision.

For some people pinterest is a daily visit for design inspiration as it allows you to create some really diverse boards based on your needs at the time.
