From Web to real world

By Steven Barrie-Anthony

AOL Home

AOL keyword: Home

Too stubborn to hire a decorator? AOL members can try out the Internet portal's self-help home design tool, part of the premium content available only to subscribers using the AOL keyword: Home. The Web-based program doesn't work miracles, but it does help transform two-dimensional fantasies into real-world remodels.

Click to view rooms from different angles, read practical design techniques and participate in message boards. "Home calculators" take the guesswork out of how much paint you'll need for a room, how many yards of carpet for the den or how many shingles to redo the roof. AOL's shopping guide also lists retailers.
