Urban Barn is a Canada-based store that offers unique, contemporary home decor at reasonable prices. They offer both furniture and home accessories and have quickly become one of Canada’s fastest growing companies, with 42 locations across Canada to date.
While we do love their furniture and home accessories (which are accessible through online shopping, for those of us who don’t travel to Canada frequently!), what is most striking to us about them is a very cool feature on their website called The Make-Room.
The Make-Room allows users to become their own interior designers, and makes creating fun and practical living spaces a simple job than can be done without hiring help. This interactive room planner is user-friendly and fun to play around with. It gives you the option of choose a pre-designed space from their gallery (such as two-bedroom apartment, bedroom, living and dining room in a condo, living room, dining room, and small one-bedroom apartment). If none of those spaces fit the area you are seeking to design, you can also choose a room shape and give specific dimensions as to get as close to your specific space as possible.
Once you have a space created, the fun part begins! While The Make-Room does automatically give you a recommended set up, all pieces are moveable so you are able to play around until you are satisfied. By simply dragging and dropping furniture and decor into your plan, you are able to create a space! You can choose furniture and decor shapes (black lining and white fill space) to merely get an idea of how a room would appear, or you can drag and drop Urban Barn pieces into the space and create a wish list as you go.
For those of you in the throws of renovation, or new home owners, or those of you who just love to re-design your homes, this is a website for you!
