Have you ever rearranged your furniture only to find that the new layout is too cramped, or too open, or too... just plain wrong? I know my wife and I have, and before we consider rearranging again, I'm going to use Floorplanner to find the optimal layout for all of our stuff.

Floorplanner is a new web-based application that allows you to create a virtual representation of your space, and then add and rearrange furniture to your heart's content. It took me a little while to get used to the flash-based navigation and all the various tools and object libraries, but once I started figuring stuff out, I was rearranging our house into configurations that I never would've thought possible. I also got a kick out of sticking miscellaneous objects in our living room; at one point I had a turntable sitting on top of a BMW that was sandwiched between a fish aquarium and four Xboxes! CRAZINESS!

Floorplanner offers several fee-based levels, but their basic FREE version has more than enough functionality if you're simply looking for a virtual way to rearrange your living space. If you'd like to try it out before you sign up, you can play around with the interface here, or check out some of the virtual spaces other people have made. Give it a shot before you undertake your next living room rearrangement.
