Gert-Jan van der Wel

Hey! My name is Gert-Jan van der Wel. I'm 41 years old, Dutch, married and have three little kids. I co-founded Floorplanner and I'm currently transitioning from running the technology dept to the sales dept. In between family and work, I like to ride my road bike whenever I can.

Here I share what I'm up to and working on at the moment. I aim to update it every few weeks. If you want me to send you an email whenever I wrote something new, you can sign up here.

Automatically furnish rooms in the Floorplanner editor app

work - 28 Nov 2018

A few weeks ago I wrote about the experiments we were doing to automatically furnish the rooms of a floor plan. Today I am very happy to announce that you can try it out yourself as itโ€™s available in our editor app ๐ŸŽ‰๐ŸŽ‰

It works now for the following room types: the living room with or without a dining section, a single or double bedroom, a bathroom with a shower or a bath and a home office. We will continue to work on improving the furnishing of the current room types and weโ€™ll focus on supporting new ones like the kitchen and furnishing professional offices.

You can decorate a room in a certain style by selecting one of the eleven collections. A collection is a selection of furniture items together with wall and flooring materials. We will add more collections ourselves soon, and later on we will let everybody create their own collections.

Give it a try and Iโ€™d love to hear what you think of it!
