2. Wayfair

It can be tough to imagine pieces of furniture in a given space and envision how they’ll go with the overall vibe of a room. Thanks to the Wayfair app’s View in Room feature, you don’t have to just imagine it — you can preview it! Use the feature by selecting a piece of furniture you’re interested in, and then tap the View in Room button under the picture of the item. Then just move your phone to look around the room, and you’ll be able to get an idea of what the piece would look like in your home. Pretty cool, right?
