With the New Year arrival, it's the perfect time to get your home in tip top shape. Whether your resolution is to finally paint the spare bedroom, or freshen up the living room with a new look - all the help you need is just a click away. 

Roomations, is a website that connects homeowners to professional interior designers using an online platform that allows the designers to create 3D images of a space for customers and provide a complete shopping list of all the items needed.

Oak Parker, Lakshmi Jayanthi started Roomations 3 years ago with two classmates while at Uof M Ross School of Business.  "Katie, Jessica and I started Roomations because we saw a need in the market for low-cost interior design services and we knew that many designers are constantly looking for freelance work".

All design services are done without leaving your home. Users go to the site and take a style quiz giving Roomations clarity of style preferences; packages are presented with options for sample boards, 3-D renderings and a detailed shopping list by professional interior designers.  Check out Lakshmi's top decor 3 websites to get your vision started:
