Just a method I use...

I take the picture into a paint program then...

1. Reduce the color count to 256 colors.
2. Most paint programs allow you to change one of those 256 colors for another and ... see the room in anoher color.

what i want to do is "plug in" cabinets o a particular wall to see what it would look like and if i don't like it i would place them on a different wall, same with kitchen sink, stove etc. just want to "see" what placement would like like before shelling out money.

You can see such software at design centers, but you may be floored by the cost of such. Hint: 4 plus figures.

What works well is the old paper doll method. Print a photo and then cabinents and such to fit.

My trick. I use clear overlay sheets with the proposed cabinents because I can mix and match such over the original picture.


There is also some home design software, but I find most do not want to invest the time required to master such software. The paper doll system and maybe a foamboard presentation reigns here.
