#TiqOurWord While going digital for things like your home renovation has it perks, being online also exposes you to cyber threats such as data breach, privacy invasion, and cyber-attacks that imply potential asset losses. As such, take due diligence for cyber security with Personal Cyber Insurance at Tiq by Etiqa Insurance.
#2 Home Design 3D
With the Home Design 3D app, you can take a leaf from the professionals by conceptualising and designing your home. Simply start by drawing out your house plan and dividing it into the various rooms. Then, add the finishing touches with furniture and accessories such as house plants.
What’s cool is that this home renovation app comes with a spanking photo-realistic 3D rendering function where you can envision your home in real-time as though you’re really there. The added compass function can also identify areas where natural light falls in your home at different times of the day.
#TiqOurWord As many home fires start in the kitchen, do leave sufficient space between the stove and nearest item when planning the furniture arrangement. A comprehensive home insurance that provides Emergency Cash Allowance in case of a fire accident or event that causes your home to be uninhabitable will certainly come in handy too!
#3 ColorSnap® Visualizer
Planning to revamp your home with a fresh coat of paint? You do not have to wait for a new year to do so. Relatively easy such that you can do-it-yourself, you can make use of technology to help you visualise and select the ideal paint colours before you get to work.
Forget about paint swatches! While that’s one way that allows you to select the exact shades that you want for the walls of your home, you might find it difficult to envision how a colour will look like on the broad walls of your home. Even if a shade looks aesthetically pleasing, it may not work well on large areas. For instance, if you’re gunning for bold colours, it might appear overly lurid in large amounts. If you’re choosing dark colours, it can make your space feel smaller and claustrophobic even.
Rather than relying on your imagination, try this home reno app instead: ColorSnap® Visualizer by Sherwin-Williams. Simply take a photo of your home via the app and you’re able to test out how if it goes well with a certain colour!
