Most of us have many little projects all over our houses awaiting attention. There are things needing fixing, cleaning and moving. Other stuff needs to be sold, put away in boxes or tossed out. We’ve listed some useful apps that have a focus on home improvements, designing, decorating and beyond:
Deco (Price: Free)
This app allows you to browse through the images of gorgeous hotels and celebrity homes across the globe as well as properties advertised on the Idealista website. These choice selections from the Idealista team provide you with great décor and design ideas.
You can have a look at photo galleries covering areas and rooms you’re most interested in— whether it’s the kitchen, living room, dining room, courtyard, garden, terrace, or anything else. You can collect great inspirational ideas for immediate use or store them for future reference.
There are various options that allow you to view full screen images, save them to devices, and share them with others through email, Facebook, and Twitter. There’s so much of eye candy to take in; get ready to spend a considerable amount of time with this.

Using this app, you can create a comprehensive inventory of all items within your house. Storing all types of relevant data such as serial numbers and model numbers is a breeze.
