Cool Web Sites: MyDesignIn

Furniture and appliances always look smaller in a store showroom than at home. Several times I have bought something but had to return it once I saw how bulky it looked in my studio apartment.

If only I had known about MyDesignIn, an online home-design social network where members create blueprints of room layouts and drag-and-drop in photos of furniture and appliances. You select the photos from retailer sites like Pottery Barn with a bookmarking tool.

You can ask fellow members for feedback and suggestions and even let them access your layouts. So if your living room furniture doesn’t look right, invite people to collaborate.

Although membership is required to use the site, registration is free.
