I just can't recommend this. There is no practical use for this other than fun. I wasn't expecting a professional CAD suite but I was expecting something that could be used for DIY purposes. This is no more than a game. I would go as far as saying that the Home Builder in Sims 3 is far better (and the graphics are better too!).

Cons are:
- No manual dims entry, especially from internal dimensions!
- Cannot add a second flooor (should be called "Room Planner")
- Cannot use for planning lofts
- The 3D renders seem low-res and the texture quality is poor
- Very small gallary of fittings and stair cases
- When modifying a wall, arrows are displayed in the centre of the wall. These obstructs the dimensions of the room.

Got this game on sale, I think. I havent used it for months, now I would like to start building a dream house or planning the house I'm in so I could show my wife what we could do... Well it crashes as soon as it opens and I cant do anything. I've checked integrity and uninstalled and re-installed. Still not working. It looks like something like this has been going on since April... >:(

It is okay if you just want to goof around with designing floor plans without having to pay the price for a Sims game and deal with the characters. It would be nice if i could print the floor plans i've created though. The texture/shading needs to be improved though

This would've been something great to use, but you can only design single-floor dwellings which won't work for my purpose of creating multiple levels in 3d space in order to simplify running wires and choosing good paths with ease and without needing to run around ( injury caused by someone running a stop sign leaves me stuck in bed for days at a time when moving around too much )...

So, rather than digitizing blueprints into a 3d model, which was my original purpose for this software and others I've tried, I may as well just print duplicates and use them for add-on "smart-home" wiring...

I'm not sure if i should recommend this program or not, because it's not possible to furnish a (real-life) room.

Cons:
- Units are not realistic
- It's not possible to make an attic with sloping walls
- Not much furniture

Its definitly not bad at all. And if you see it as a "game" like The Sims or to design your dream house it's fun.

Product received for free
The way this program is, it feels like an IOS. If you dont have any skills with any other type of software ment for home designing then this would be something for you... OR SIMS 1,2 or 3!!!

a tool that lets you design your home with zero tech background requirement.
the problems:
it doesn't have stairs so you can't design multi-level home yet.
it doesn't support cloud save and cannot export your design.
the models look a bit last decade.

This is the least intuitive, least flexible, most under tested program I've ever purchased. Shift+click does not let you select multiple walls. Shift+move does not allow you to adjust an entire room keeping its original proportions. Instead you move one corner of the room regardless of which command key you press while moving a corner, making it impossible to easily manipulate rooms. You cannot place a room inside of another room, meaning that you have to put up individual walls, which also is not easy. You put up one wall with the intended length, and then the wall next to it magnet clips onto the INSIDE edge, meaning you have to add half the width of your wall to the length of the wall you're currently placing. This occurs irrespective of your choice of magnet clipping in the settings option. It should connect to the outside edge of the wall so that your inside measurement stays the same (this is particularly important for odd widths of walls since you cannot make walls through half inch intervals). To make matters worse, once two walls have connected against your will, they still have two different drag points, so moving the corner does not move both walls, once again making it impossible to easily adjust corners. Additionally, measurements do not update as you're dragging the wall, so you have to guess where the right placement is. Never purchase this program. Zero thought went into its production. Right clicking does nothing, when it could have added additional functionality. They obviously wanted the program to be highly flexible, but then don't make easy alternatives to painstaking and difficult modifications. Shift, cntrl, right click, any of these could have been utilized to successfully create a program that is both flexible and easy. They had obviously never used Photoshop or GIMP, which both have incredibly intuitive interfaces, from which these programmers could have learned. This program is a prime example of why you need not just UI programmers, but UX experts who design the program for the UI programmers to realize. 0/10.

A lot of functionality for a low price.

Pros
- In 30 minutes I was able to make a fairly faithful recreation of my living room
- 30 minutes later I had imagined an extension to the living room and bought some new furniture
- Switched to first person mode and walked around the extension, showing my wife what it could look like.

Cons
- Now I have to build an extension and buy new furniture.

First off, this review has been updated due to comments (see comments section for more on that)

Do I recommend this program? Yes and no. Read on for more info.

Since they don't show you a full-screen screenshot, you can't see how badly the texture qualities are. Many of the textures go onto surfaces wrong and you can't correct it either. If you're thinking of buying this for fun, then you're probably better off just buying the Sims.

Update: If you are buying it for fun (as opposed to professional reference and useage) then you would be better off to buy the game I mentioned. There are other tools like this one out there that you can get for free and this one in particular is also available on iOS and Android from what I've read.

There is no denying the tools usefulness, but better textures and more customization items would be good too. But that's me being picky.

Can you lay out a room plan with this product?
Yes.
You can work to accurate measurements based on your room. The tool does what it's for, but it could have been improved upon.

There are 10 items in Home Design 3D which are unlocked via liking the Dev's Facebook page.

And since a commenter asked me to suggest any other programs that do the same or better, there is a program called Sweethome 3D. It's the only one I recall the name of right now, but there are android apps and according to one of the other reviews here, Home Design 3D here is a port from that app. Wether it costs on the appstore or not I can't tell you, but if you Google for home design or interior design apps, a few recommended apps come up above the rest of the results.

If you're willing to do a few Googles or search the Android and Apple App stores, you'll come across programs much like this and save yourself some money.

This program has some potential to be a good interior design tool, but it is not very user-friendly. Here are some missing features:
- No simple vector drawings - every wall has to have a non-zero thickenss, which makes drawing a flat based on interior measurements a nightmare.
- There can't be rooms within rooms - it's not allowed
- No multi-select
- Cannot manually punch in the length of a wall

I also encountered a glaring bug 5 minutes into using the program: For whatever reason, the program will try to drag me to the edge of the drawing board. The only solution is to close the program and re-open.

I might as well use Paint.NET to draw my flat.

Note: I didn't spend 8 hours on this program. I simply have it minimized for 7.5 hours.

Edit: This program has a functionality to split walls under "Create a new angle" option. This can help with creating more complex rooms. The developers also seem pretty active in addressing concerns for now. I am willing to withdraw this negative review if the program improves substantially after a few patches.

Bought this as I'm purchasing a house, I was able to recreate the floor plan that I have in front of me quick and easily.

Being able to get a rough visualisation is more than enough for me. Would recommend.

It's alright. I got it for around $7 and used it to design the apartment I'm moving in to next month.

It could use more assets. The UI could also use improvement.

Here is my review and gameplay video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uY0vm2Ht_wA
In the video I show how to make a room, by placing the walls, window, door, furniture, painting, I quickly show all of the furniture that the software has. I speak about iOS version and the port that this one is, that is much simplified.
But overall would I recommend this software? I got it on promotion for $6, which is almost 2 hamburgers and it does a good job at replicating my room, but overall:

Pros:
-Cheap
-Has most things that will populate the house
-Easy to learn
-Does the job

Cons:
-The graphics remind of Counter-Strike, although there are some good looking textures
-The full version is made for iOS, this is a really simplified and dumbed down version
-You cannot make multi-store buildings, cannot make second floor
-Do not have garden objects like pool, plants, bushes, trees
-Cannot adjust the size vertically (height) of everything except the walls
-Cannot import your own textures like in the full version

Overall as I said I am content with what it does, but I was and still am reallly disappointed when I found out the full version that costs $10 has so much much more, and its only for iOS, I hope they update this software.

I knocked out a semi-faithful recreation of my house with furniture in about half an hour.

Some of the furniture seems less than standard, common sizes could be labeled as such (bed sizes).
I'd rather see a rgb wheel or something for the paint option.
I couldn't figure out whether you could split surface conjoined rooms, like the kitchen/living room. It always tried to carpet or tile the whole area for me.
The furniture snapping to walls irritated me a little. I couldn't seem to place anything but the front edge of a desk against a wall.

It's good enough for brainstorming what you want, but not much more.

I bought this to help design a workshop. Unfortunately, this is a very minimalistic drawing program. Can't manually enter the length of a wall or window, so it's kinda tedious to set a wall to a specific length (14'10", 15'2", 14'11",15'3",14'8", etc). Can't copy items so if I want the same window in every room, I have to drag and resize each one separately. Probably most important, there is no support for roofs. Without the ability to view the building with a roof, this is just a toy.
