There are many programs for kitchen design Part of them are payable and the part are free. Some are better and some worse. I looked through many of them and I would like to describe few of the best free software for kitchen interior design.
IKEA Home Planner – Kitchen.
IKEA Home Planner – Kitchen is a simple and free tool to help designing the home kitchen. It allows you to define the shape and dimensions of the room, location of windows, doors, etc. On the surface of the 2D individual cabinets can be applied using a wide directory included in the program. The catalog is clearly divided thematically into different types of cabinets, each is measured and presented in a simplified shape, and the program lets you define their appearance.
At any time we can use three-dimensional view that allows you to simulate the look of our future kitchen. There’s also a quote in which prices are all over the kitchen and its individual components. You can download and use it for free. Software is available in various language versions. The program interface operation does not cause any problems.
It should be noted that the offer of IKEA kitchen cabinets involves a lot of the standard sizes – what can be found in other manufacturers offer kitchen furniture. Consequently, in most cases you won’t be forced to buy furniture created by our project, only in IKEA stores. With success, we can go with the cost estimate to another store that we may offer more favorable prices, or other fronts patterns. In any pricing alternatives will help us also printed from the program cost estimate - it contains not only names but also the mass and dimensions of all cabinets used in the project.
In conclusion, the IKEA Home Planner - Kitchen is a great solution and it’s easy to use and universal. However, it has one disadvantage (like the other, the similar production solutions Geac Computer) - little realistic 3D visualization module. Here, another software could help, which we would like to take attention to now.
ALNO Kitchen Planner
ALNO Kitchen Planner is software of German furniture company ALNO. It allows you to design your own kitchen with rich furniture manufacturer directory, as well as equipment, accessories and additional kitchen equipment. The project can start ”from scratch” or to modify one of the exemplary projects. What makes ALNO Kitchen Planner’a better than other free programs is the ability to modify interference in the appearance of not only furniture but the entire kitchen (floor, walls, lights, ornaments, accessories, etc.). The most important advantage of the program uses it is brilliant 3D visualization module for lighting simulation, so that projects are very realistic. Best describes the manufacturer’s website with sample projects. Finished projects in the form of 3D visualization, 2D design and product list can be printed at the end.
Unfortunately the list of products on the printed design is not as clear as in the IKEA Home Planner - Kitchen. It does not contain blocks and dimensions of individual elements of the project, but only the symbols and shortened name of the manufacturer - which limits the universality of the program. This fact in the face of forced to buy ALNO products, narrows the scope of the program. You should however be interested in the program due to the mentioned, highly realistic 3D visualization module. Created with the tool design and visualization can help you design for your dream kitchen, a construction may be ordered in specialized firms.
KitchenDraw is one of the most popular professional software used to design and estimate the kitchen and bathroom, and after the installation of additional libraries also other rooms. KitchenDraw is a tool used by many professionals in the industry - including studies of kitchen furniture and furniture companies produces custom furniture.
Because of its destination, the program is harder to use than programs provided free by some manufacturers of furniture for independent interior design. It offers a much more extensive functionality. KitchenDraw possibilities are not limited to the arrangement of space but also to complete the preparation of project documentation (plans, projections, photorealistic visualizations), and commercial documentation (cost estimates, orders).
Unlike other solutions presented in this post, KitchenDraw is not free but allows you to 30 hours free design - which is more than enough for personal use.
