The New Year is here, which means it’s time to start thinking about those home renovation goals! Thankfully, eieihome.com has just launched an exciting new tool, designed to help make your renovation planning much easier.
Our new room designer gives you the power to see what different styles and finishes may look like in rooms similar to those in your home. Best of all, there is no learning curve, because our room designer is incredibly easy to use! Here’s how it works:
Step 1: Access Room Designer Through eieihome.com
The first time you use the room designer tool, you’ll need to access it through our home page. Simply look for the gray navigation bar at the top and click “design your space”. From there, you’ll be taken to the room designer homepage. Click the Let’s Get Started Button for the next step.
Step 2: Choose Your Room
When you first begin, you will be asked to select a room that you wish to design. Choose from bathrooms, kitchens, and home exteriors. There are a variety of different styles and layouts, making it easy to select a room that best represents your space. Then, click next.
In order to move on to add finishes and colours to your space, you’ll first need to sign up with eieihome.com. Note: if you are already an eieihome.com member or newsletter subscriber, you can use your existing login to use the room planner! Simply click Log In at the bottom of the signup screen.
Step 3: Time to Design
Now that you’ve signed up and selected your room it’s time to design. This is where things get fun! On this page, you’ll find two different types of menus. To the left is a menu of categories, organizing the components in your space, such as the backsplash, cabinets, countertops, and floors.
At the bottom are the options available under each category. Simply click on the different finishes and choices to see them appear in place on the main image. When you find a finish that you like, select another category and go through the same process. You can continue to work through the different categories and finishes until you’ve designed your ideal space. When you’re done, click next at the bottom right of the screen. You may need to click a few times until it changes from “next” to “summary”.
Step 4: Next Steps
Once you’ve finished designing your room you have a few options for your next steps. You can edit your existing designing or select a new room and start over. If you’re happy with the room you’ve created, you have the option to save it and have a copy of the designed sent to your email for future reference.
The best part about this option is that you’re not just saving the image. If you scroll down a bit on the page, you’ll notice a list of the different selections and materials you’ve chosen. This makes it easy to show your contractor what you want or to act as a helpful guide when shopping for materials at your local home improvement centre.
