New App Makes Determining Unique, Personal Interior Design Style Easier

If your latest interior design project has left you with piles of paint samples, binders of fabric samples, and random sketches and magazine clippings that have remained untouched for months, a new app can help move your design decisions forward.


The app, designed by Ferguson Bath, Kitchen and Lighting Gallery, utilizes six prompts which ask the user to answer questions about visual style preferences. After just a few minutes, the app can tell the user whether his or her style is modern, transitional or traditional.

Transitional style is a fusion and a blend of traditional and contemporary design and lends heavily to individual interpretation. Modern style includes sleek, clean lines and simplifies open space. Traditional style is classic and orderly. Furniture pieces in a traditionally designed set typically match and they are consistent and predictable.

Ferguson Bath, Kitchen and Lighting Gallery even takes the decision-making a step further, by connecting the user with specific bathroom and kitchen products that match the user's newly determined style.

Sam Rose, director of showrooms at Ferguson, said the app helps streamline tough interior design decisions.

It can be overwhelming for many consumers to begin the idea gathering required for a new construction or major remodel project,” he said. “This fun, simple quiz is a great way for homeowners to start turning their unique vision of the perfect kitchen or bathroom into a reality.”

A focus on unique perspectives and personal taste are emphasized with the app results, which also allow users to share the results on Facebook or directly download them. Giving users the opportunity to evaluate their visions at an actual Ferguson store and see the products in-person, the app also lists the address of the nearest showroom.

Once inspired by discovering their specific design types, users can then begin to plan out their dream kitchens and bathrooms, with the help of the experts at Ferguson.
