Autodesk Homestyler has been around since coming out of Autodesk Labs a couple years ago (August 2010) as Project Dragonfly. For those not aware of Autodesk Homestyler, it is a free web based 3D interior space design application to visualize the space before you jump into the project. You can pre-plan your dorm layout to the future layout of your home or future dream home or space. It is also perfect for couples and roommates to plan furniture changes so all parties are happy and can visualize the redesigned space. Trust me it is so much easier to move digital furniture up and down floors and around the room of a house on Homestyler than in real life multiple times to find just the right place. So many uses, and so darn easy to use that pretty much everyone in the house except your pet goldfish can use it. You can even export your design as a 3D Revit model.

Autodesk Homestyler is available as a mobile app. The mobile app version allows some really unique features and workflow such as using the camera of your device to capture the room and it then approximates dimensions and allows you to adjust and fine tune. You can then place new furniture, electronics, décor, and more in your captured room to visualize a redesign of the room.
You can also browse the Design Stream and select other rooms for inspiration and even choose to redesign those.
I liked the gallery of Empty Rooms as a starting point. From the very basic to the nice big city loft space or cabin style.
I selected a big city high rise looking space and used it to re-design my big city office space.
And this is my finished space all done on my iPad. Not bad for only flicking my fingers, and no hernia or back problems from moving furniture.
Not sure you are an interior designer, there are links to real professionals you can use.
