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.

At Floorplanner we recently made it possible to automatically furnish the rooms of a house in our editor app. Simply select a bedroom, living, bathroom or kitchen, then pick your preferred style, click a button and BAM! your room is fully decorated. You got flooring and rugs on the floor, paint and painting on the walls and furniture placed in a way that makes sense. It may not be everything you ever wanted, but it’s a very good starting point.
The next thing we focused on was automatically furnishing home-offices, which in turn got us thinking about real offices. Why not use the same approach to furnish an actual office space? So we gave it a shot and here are our first results, pretty cool huh?
It’s available in our editor app as we speak, and if you have any tips and/or remarks please let me know!
