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.

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 it’s available in our editor app 🎉🎉
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 we’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 I’d love to hear what you think of it!
