An interior designer’s day-to-day challenges can vary as widely as the tastes and styles of their clients—from determining a room’s natural light to staying creatively inspired. And while there is no shortage of design-related apps, it can be tough to tell which ones help get the job done, and which ones are compltetly free. So we asked four tech-savvy designers which apps they know, use, and love. We hope you like what we came out with!
