I love this program. I have made floor plans of our current house and one we plan to buy. I can move furniture around virtually before I ask my husband to move it around physically. My granddaughter's also like to use the program. The 8 year old one says it is her favorite computer program. (An 8 year old needs some help learning how to use it.)

-Fairly user friendly
-More downloadable catalogs on the Home Designer website

It's lacking a few things:
-no furniture for children's rooms (like cribs or changing tables)
-no fitness equipment
-no garage equipment (like vehicles, tools or workbenches)
-a piano stool, but... no pianos (even though a picture in the product description shows a living room with a grand piano in it- misleading)

Other minor issues:
-There is no way to import 3d models, so you're out of luck if the library is missing something you want.
-Some objects cannot be edited (size, material, etc.)
-It freezes/crashes a lot

Not a bad program overall. Make sure the drivers for your video card are updated or a lot of your materials will show up blank white in 3d mode. It took me a lot of time and frustration to figure this out!

The product is very nice and user friendly. It has a large library of items and furniture. The 3D is easy enough to use and you can even modify items in 3D which is really nice. For example you can move furniture around in 3D, drag doors/windows to be bigger or smaller, etc. I did a complete kitchen and bath remodel and this software made choosing layout very easy. Also, since I haven't yet moved into the house, I was able to use it to decide how well my large bedroom furniture would best be arranged in the small bedroom without having to work really hard physically moving it around when I move in. I would recommend this software.

Waste of money! I export the 3D drawings to JPEG and TIFF, they are both in bad quality. The details are jagged. I need my money back

I downloaded this SW to help place my furniture in my new home but I find it very hard to use an anti-intuitive to learn. I hate it.
What's the point of having 30 different desk designs to choose from? I need to create a generic shape because my 2-piece, L-shaped corner computer desk will not be in your dumb library. Very frustrating.

Not reccomeded. Stick to more basic but practical options.

Only use program for floor plans, the kitchen cabinet lay out is very easy. I don't know how the three dimensional part is?
