In addition to interior design software that can be used to design entire homes or individual rooms, you can also get bathroom design tools that are typically software options with bathroom design features.
This page is part of our popular home design software section but emphasizes bathroom design tools.

3. Home Hardware Design Centre
Home Hardware offers two interior design tools. One is for kitchen design software. The other is color selection. Neither are bathroom specific, but can the color selection platform can be used for bathrooms.
Touted as full home design software, this option can be used as a bathroom design tool if that’s all you’re designing.
Below we offer a series of screenshot to see how to use this option. I think you’ll be impressed with the last screenshot that reveals a 3D design. It’s quite good.
FYI, lots of furniture options to incorporate in your rooms including bathroom.
Also entirely online and free, RoomToDo is a fairly simple design tool.
It can render bathrooms in 3D which is great.
Like all others, it takes a bit of time to play around with but it’s an option you should check out if you’re set on free.
6. Room Sketcher
Room Sketcher is cool because you have the option to get them to do some drawings for you if you find it difficult to do your own designs.
As you can see from our screenshots below, you can design any room including detailed bathroom designs.
7. Small Blue Printer
Not my favorite, but I include this design tool because I like to err on the side of being overly inclusive.
As you can see from our screenshot examples, it’s fairly dated in it’s user interface.
My biggest beef is you need to download it, which I don’t like. I much prefer software that’s online (i.e. on the cloud).
8. Olympic Paint Color Visualizer
Below we set out a series of screenshots showing how this can be used to help with bathroom color selection.
9. My Deco 3D Room Planner
10. Lowe’s Virtual Room Designer
With Lowe’s design tool, you can specifically design a bathroom. Check out image below. The level of detail is quite good.
My favorite feature though is the pre-designed bathrooms so you don’t have to start from scratch (but you can if you want).
Here are some images to see what you can expect with this software.
Click here for PlanningWiz.
There comes a time when every bathroom needs a little spruce. So it would be great if we could have a way to visualize it as close to reality as possible. Here come the 3D floor plans, which provide enhanced visualization capabilities, offering an accurate view of the space.
Although there are so many apps which allow you to do that and you probably don’t know which one to chose.
We say to chose one which is user-friendly, which is not hard to use and you don’t have to have special skills in order to create online floor plans. We believe anybody can create online plans and visualize them in 3D without being a necessity to have technical skills.
PlanningWiz has a special section of bathroom items which can be used to create interactive floor plans in order to get a better sense of how you would like your bathroom to look like.
A floor plan is very important when you are home redecorating, a 3D rendering is the closest realistic view of the plan except for the construction itself, and in this way, you can share your ideas with your friends and family.
3D floor plans give you the facility to organize your bathroom and all the pieces around, before actually buying them. They help you see all details, the exact dimensions of each item if it fits a corner bathtub or a regular one, or just a shower cabin. You can decide how all these are placed along with which colors and textures you would choose for the walls and flooring.
PlanningWiz’s catalogue for bathroom includes generic objects from which you can choose in order to create a complete bathroom that matches your ideas and style. And then you go shopping for the items having a solid plan.
With PlanningWiz you can create up to 5 plans for free, you can work from your computer or tablet/ iPad and also you can visualize the plans from your mobile phone. All you need is an internet connection and to make an account.
B. Paid Options
If it’s more bathroom design horsepower you want, it’s available, but for a price.
Below are some paid bathroom design tools and software you can check out.
12. SmartDraw Interior Design Software
I’m not a huge fan of SmartDraw, but include it because it’s hugely popular and they offer design software for pretty much everything under the sun including bathrooms.
Here are a series of screenshots and examples.
13. Chief Architect
Now we’re cooking with gas.
I own a license to the Chief Architect software and it’s outstanding. The level of detail and the quality of bathroom graphics are second-to-none.
It’s a very robust platform so it takes time to learn, but if you’re doing a serious reno or building a house, it’s totally worth learning this design tool.
Even FloorPlanner is paid, the lowest priced option is very, very cheap. Frankly, I overall prefer paid software because software that charges money is often better because there’s funds to make it better.
This can be used entirely online to design your bathroom.
You can design for free, but pay if you want the design so there’s no risk. If you don’t like what you can do with it, there’s no cost to you.
15. Space Designer 3D
When it comes to design software, Space Designer 3D is one of the best.
With more than 5 million users, it’s very popular even though it costs money. What I like about it is as follows:
- Easy to use;
- Very detailed renderings.
- Pay for just one design (or several). This way you don’t have to pay way more than you’ll use it.
- A lot of design features for every room including bathrooms.
16. Punch! Bathroom Software
Punch! design software is right up there with Chief Architect. I also own Punch! software (landscape and interior design versions). It does a spectacular job for every room including bathrooms (as well as outside the home).
If you’re investing in design software, you can’t go wrong with Punch! However, keep in mind that this is a very robust platform so it takes time to learn (I enjoy using it and figuring it out… but I’ve put many hours into using this tool).

17. Sketchup Pro
Sketchup Pro is the big kahuna that many pros use (it’s expensive). It’s amazing but you need to spend a lot of time learning it. Also, in some instances you may need additional software for various renderings or dynamic renderings.
But you do get what you pay for. This software can design anything and the level of detail is amazing.
