5.0 out of 5 stars Works for me February 5, 2011
I wanted to buy this software for a while, but the mixed reviews were a deturrent. I found hgtv H&L Platinum sute at target for $32 around christmas i had to get it. I have found that this software has been very good. for all the negtive marks that i have read almost none have been true. My sister and i were able to wall the house in under an hour. we did have very good drawings of the house with percise measurements. At this time i have only done the kitchen, but we had to draw the whole house.

Cons.
found that you can only do one color on a wall no design.
appliances are few and ulgy.
the viewing angles took time to find out how to use right.

Pros.
all around very easy to use.
all the doors, cabinets, windows, you could want.
walk around feature very useful.

The pros far out way the cons even if i can't think of any more, this is my first review and probably my last lol. i hope this helps someone on the fence about this product. i do have some computer experence but not much, so for a novice it would be fine. i found if i just play around with the software i could find out everthing i need to know.

1.0 out of 5 stars Lame product from a company that is not trustworthy April 14, 2014
On January 4, 2014, as part of a home office design project, I bought and downloaded the Mac version of Nova's Home design software (actually I paid for it twice as I unintentionally downloaded the PC version before getting the Mac version--I never installed the PC version as I couldn't). I successfully installed the Mac version, and I then spent the better part of that Saturday trying to use it. I had used Better Homes and Gardens kitchen design software for the PC a dozen years earlier and found it very satisfactory. The Nova software was clumsy and I simply couldn't get it to do what it was supposed to do. My opinion is that it is a poorly designed product. I called Nova and asked for their advertised refund on the two downloads (this was on the Monday after I had downloaded and attempted to use their product). After a long wait, a lady told me that she would e-mail me the paper work that I had to fill out to get my refund. Following their instructions carefully, I completely filled out their three-page refund request with all kinds of information, affirmed that I had deleted their software, and e-mailed the form to them on January 8. Despite my making repeated, polite telephone calls and sending several e-mails over the last four months, I never have received my refund!

3.0 out of 5 stars Needs More of HGTV in the Designs August 21, 2011
Verified Purchase
I researched all the home design software on Amazon and mistakingly chose this one. The product works and really isn't difficult to use. It comes with a great user's guide. It is more advanced so is not for someone looking for a basic program. The real disappointment with this program is the interior design portion. For having HGTV in it's logo, you'd think it offered great choices for design. However, the choices are minimal. This program has 100's of design options - not thousands. You can change the color and finish of furnishings, but not the style. There are almost no decorative accessories and you need to be creative in making a walk-in closet. One bonus is that you can download some additional elements and add to the program catalog.

1.0 out of 5 stars Worthless July 4, 2013
By ShelB
Verified Purchase
I bought it to design a one acre lot. Canʻt fit a lot that size into the work area, canʻt see the dimensions as I create lot lines or even after for that matter. Very steep learning curve, may be possible to do what I want to do, but I donʻt see how. Donʻt waste your money. Iʻve had several house and landscape design tools, and this is by far the worst Iʻve encountered.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good software June 15, 2011
I bought this to lay out a house we're purchasing, specifically to visualize a major kitchen redesign. Having seen the mixed reviews, I made sure to watch the video tutorials. This is not a piece of software that you can learn to use by trial and error. But once you watch the tutorials and read the help, it's pretty easy to use and to construct your space. The 3D rendering for visualization is good.

What I would improve: have lots and lots more objects (furniture, fixtures, etc.). The ones they give you are fine, but more would be better. Also, I found it difficult to create just a countertop (i.e. without a cabinet). It can be done, but it's a bit cumbersome.

Overall, it's a great piece of software for the price. Just be sure you invest the time up front to learn it. They payoff to be able to visualize changes without paying a cent for paint or fixtures and without having to move a muscle to rearrange a room is worth it.

Edit: Had to revise my 4 star rating to a one star. After a week of work putting my new house together, I saved the file and hibernated my laptop. It would not start back up, so I rebooted it. When I fired up the software, it told me the file was in use or had restricted permissions. Neither was the case. After getting up to third level support with the company, they established that the file was corrupt, as was the backup the software was supposed to have made. They basically left me with a pat on the back and a "Good luck to you, pal." My work went down the drain. I was assured that it was normal for a file to become corrupted when power was lost.
