Needs work 2/5
I enjoyed playing this game at first, then noticed I had to repurchase items I just bought, and the game would constantly glitch after I would just start designing and take my keys, maybe someday it will be awesome
I enjoy playing, but am truly disappointed with the scoring inconsistencies. My friends and I designed a room together using identical furniture and other pieces. We used our own accounts and we each got a variety of scores-ranging from 3.74 to 4.64. I know that this is a game and people vote, so it's the luck of the draw basically. But it is a real drag to see and get such a low score when your rooms have some same qualities as another high scoring room. Or maybe even decorated exactly the same!
Potential To Be Great, However... 2/5
By Fed Up CT
Only one challenge a day offers you the chance to win your money back ($2500 upon submission) which depletes your funds quickly as challenges require the purchases of items you do not have in order to complete and submit the design for $500.
In addition to this, decor items go quickly from your inventory and are expensive to replace, but they can only be bought with diamonds. The game gifts each designer 500diamonds a day, no more, no less, and only allows so many videos watched for 15free diamonds a piece, maxing out at maybe a few hundred a day, if that, which is not even enough to replace a plant and a painting together. There used to be a decent number of apps you could download and run, or achieve a certain level in to gain free diamonds, but since the New Year has begun, there really hasn’t been any new options, leaving you left to scams and purchases as your only other options.
The game crashes when purchasing items and causes multiple purchases and wasted money. No reply of complaints from developer.
Voting is a joke 3/5
Well, many of my irritations have already been written in MOST of the other reviews so I won’t bore people by repeating them (e.g., too expensive, can only use items five times, etc.)
What I will discuss is how screwed up voting is in this game. I consider myself a pretty good designer. I have always gotten compliments on my home decor and friends have asked me many times to help them decorate their
Homes. I follow the design requirements for each design and I think my designs are appealing. However, when I get less than a 5.0, (of which I have only received four), I look at the Top Designs, and they are bland and boring. Most of the furniture is beige and the art is sometimes non-existent. That gets you a 5.0??
How are people with poor taste getting these perfect scores? I can only imagine that either there is a glitch in scoring or most of the people playing have bland taste in decor. Either way, I can’t concern myself anymore with getting a high score and instead just enjoy designing the rooms, as long as I can afford it, Which may not be much longer. I have spent hundreds of dollars in less than a month. It’s pretty ridiculous.
To the app designers, you really should make the art easier to obtain. The art often completes the design and makes a big difference. Only receiving new art for every $500,000 is not fair.
Hope they make some adjustments.
My favorite game 4/5
By recycledwhite interiors
Please update some suggestions to better suit these areas
1. Allow us to sell the furniture and artwork we do not like for coins or dollars
2. Add more artwork the selection is minimal compared to the amount of furniture options ! The limited selection makes the expensive furniture you buy with coins look less luxurious and lessens the overall design value we work so hard to create. This also gets tiresome using the same pieces over and over until you reach a new level . The selection of art is really bad for the most part and there needs to be other options like mirrors or carved wood art more clocks.
3 add farm country decor to the style selection. This is such a huge craze and very in demand how can you not offer this look !!!
4. The voting process is great to earn keys however it devalues the selection process the voters aren’t always making well decisions and often time those with very well done challenges are receiving low marks ! Often times people are in a hurry to get through the voting process they don’t even look at the two photos they pick whatever to get the keys ! This is very upsetting after spending actual money to achieve a high score and not getting it is where there needs to be a better voting system !
Also if you don’t think the challenge was done to the criteria of the client or if it was just a bad challenge you shouldn’t have to vote for it !

It is great! I like it! But...well...I don’t like that you have to use sertand things for some homes.
So upset. 1/5
Lost all my inventory. Needless to say it was a lot. And of course I don’t hear anything back. Used to be my favorite game despite the absolutely ridiculous prices but this is infuriating. So much time and money wasted. Thanks a lotttttt
I love the game 5/5
By Tameka Terrell
However it’s not working anymore for me. I don’t know what the problem is so likely I’ll be saying goodbye.... It’s needs to be fixed.
Pretty good 3/5
By Eastin j
I like this game a lot and how it works, but everything is too expensive. There's only two ways to get money. Buy it, or enter a challenge. If you're just beginning, it's hard to enter challenges because you don't have money to buy a lot of furniture for them.
Need to be allowed to keep inventory and not have to purchase 3/5
Could be better if allowed to keep prizes and what you already purchased in the game
Love this game buuuut..... 5/5
I really love playing this game. Love the different designs. I would really like that if I bought something it’s mine to keep. That’s annoying to have to constantly keep paying for something.
Secondly, it doesn’t seem fair to vote if people are on different levels. Voting should be kept with the specific level someone else is on.
But still love it!!
Can’t get the app to open since the new update. Also, before I downloaded the new version I could only watch one video to earn diamonds.So, 15 diamonds don’t buy much.
Great game, huge bugs 2/5
I love the concept and when it works it’s great fun. But the newest version won’t even download to my iPad so playing is now impossible.
App not working 4/5
What’s wrong ?!!?! I keep hitting the continue button and it doesn’t do anything!
Move the furniture 5/5
By Tradewinds ranch
Love this game but I need to be able to move the furniture around
New and Improved update crashes. 4/5
By frustrated decorator
I can’t even get on the app with my iPad. What’s wrong with you developers. It crashed before periodically and now no on can use it. At least Verizon customers. You got to make this app more reliable and not require people to have the fastest possible internet or it won’t load.
But one of my real issues is the limited wall art choices. We need more paintings and better ones. This is ridiculous. Most users end up with the same piece of art twice or 3x on the same wall. And honestly one item would suffice on a wall if you could put it in the middle instead of having to cram in 2 on each side. And change the art and add new pieces regularly like the furniture.
Also it would be really interesting to know the number of rooms submitted, the percentage that get 5s. And what gets posted as a winner and why. The rooms are frequently carbon copies of each other. If there are thousands of 5s, make the score go higher so the rooms can be differentiated more, or at least choose radically different 5s to show. Put all rooms that are black and white into the same voting scheme and let people chose between them and not against rooms that are not black and white.
Recruit me and I could do wonders for this app.
I agree 100% with rachie773 ‘s entire review!!! 4/5
Love this game and I don’t do phone games. Rachie773 was on point with all suggestions!!
Newest update 4/5
Just updated the app. And now it won’t open. I really enjoy the game. But I wish it was easier to make money to buy more items. I see so many people with incredible rooms, and furniture, but idk when I’ll get enough money in the game to reach that point. Kind of, slowly losing interest strictly for that.
Also, I wish we could decorate entire houses over time. Like our own rooms that others could come look at
So frustrating! 3/5
By woo saa
I HAVE spent so much money on this app but usually it is something that helps me unwind or distract me so I figure its worth it. For the past two days it has been kicking me off in the middle of a design or not even letting me open the app. I wish I could say that this is no big deal to me but sadly, it is! I also agree that when voting it seems as though two really great designs are paired against each other and two not so great designs are always paired up against each other. This makes it nearly impossible to vote accurately. The game claims that designs are randomly selected but its obvious that that is not the case. If im going to spend all of this money i want good service in return. Design Home, please get it together before I have to find a new addiction, I mean coping mechanism.
Soooo fun just stahp reading reviews and get it already I mean it free so u got nothing to lose except time and ur already wasting that
App not working since update 2/5
Nothing will load now.
Frustrated .... 3/5
I’ve been playing this for a couple weeks and have even spent my own money on diamonds but the past couple of days it hasn’t worked !!! I even updated it and that made it worse. Now when I click it it’s telling me to update again but when it goes to the App Store it just says open ?
I really want to play but it’s being really stupid. Hope it’s working again soon.
Ditto on Rachie773’s comments + two more 4/5
I agree with everything Rachie773 said but I’d also like to add that I wish there was a way to sort items by price/diamonds. Also it appears that the scores result from your last total score averaged with the score you received from the design being judged. Seems like it would be a better and more accurate reflection of designed skill if the designer’s total score was an average of ALL designs they have ever submitted. A true average. But love the game and can’t wait every morning for the $2500 design! I do it while enjoying my morning coffee.
Problems with most recent update 1/5
Recent update app keeps freezing then
News work on the voting 3/5
By French Lover from the Bronx
Fun to create the room, but the voting and scoring is not fairly done. They need to work on a better scoring system.
Designers Dreams 5/5
By That GAME!!!!!!
I loving the fact that I can design room after room
TOO EXPENSIVE 4/5
If this game didn’t cost a fortune to play I would have given it 5 stars. If you want to do a really nice design, you will end up spending money every design😡
By Damon Bradley
I love this game but I haven’t been able to play it for a few days because I keep having issues. The game keeps telling me to go update my app even though it’s already updated and there’s absolutely nothing I can do about it.
Could use some improvements 3/5
I really enjoy this game and look forward to creating new designs! However, I feel like diamonds should be easier to earn and you should get more than just 5 of the item when you purchase it. Another thing that would make things easier is if when looking for items you could choose to only show cash or diamond merchandise and be able to organize it by cost.
Won’t let me play 1/5
So I updated to the latest version ... open the app to try to play and I get a message saying there’s a new version. Click to go to App Store to download most recent version. I click it, it gives me only the “open” option. There’s no “update” option. I’m on the most recent iOS. Soooo ... not playable until this is fixed.
Will Not Open 1/5
For the last two days the app has not been working. Yesterday it kept telling me there was a connection issue and to check my internet, there was nothing wrong with my internet. Now today it keeps telling me I need the newest version but the update was already done yesterday.
Update hell! 2/5
Loved playing this game until the most recent update. Now the game won’t load.
Design Home 4/5
By Bracelet Lady
I really enjoy this designing ap. The best way to improve the game and keep people happy is to lower the price for art and plants. The voting leaves a bit of a bad taste, also.
By Bri Wilson
I enjoy playing this game. I like that it features items that you can actually buy. I only wish you could put throw pillows on your couch and beds!
It was fun until latest update 1/5
Latest update keeps making the app crash
UPDATE CRASHED!!!!!! 5/5
I love this game!!! Now I can’t even access it at all!!!! I did the update this morning, now nothing! This bites! Please help.....😩
Obsessed with game 5/5
I agree with the other players about the rating process for the designs, but I still have to give the game 5 stars for the concept and all the different challenges.
BUT, my biggest rave is for their tech support! After their update last week, I couldn’t get most of the items to load or kept getting error messages. I wrote to the app support, yesterday; received a response within an hour and they had a new update by this morning. I couldn’t be happier with this new update, except now I have 10 designs to catch up on. Whoa is me 😂.
Todays update. 1/5
Update today made things worse. Cannot open app
New bug in loved app 5/5
In iPhone you new update is looping. I have newest version App Store is stating “open” no new updates. But your app loops me back to open in App Store.
So much fun and allows me to be creative! 5/5
I have been playing for awhile and really like the app.however for 2 days the site is saying connectivity problems,everything freezes and now is stuck. It says To update, I have the updated version. Can’t do anything.!! Help
There is some fraudulent things happening in regards to the voting and ratings of the designs. Also it is very glitchy and often won’t load!
By rainbow waterfall
My iPad has updated the latest version. When I go to the icon it is still telling me hit continue and update. Won’t let me in to the game even though it is updated.
My app quit working after the last update
Version 1.04.08 1/5
The newest version of 1/18/2018 won’t update. Followed directions for the Update Link but there’s no Update Button.
I really like this app. Hopefully they can get this glitch fixed soon.
Addictive but expensive! 4/5
I am so addicted to the game but it is ridiculously expensive to play. I should only play one challenge a day and move on but I do love it and usually do them all. I am starting to cut back now. I’m surprised my husband hasn’t cut up my debit card over this game! Sooo.. be warned ;). Like others, I would really appreciate it if you didn’t have to keep buying the same won accessories over and over but really, just more uses for what is purchased would at least make it more practical to play. Orrrr even better would be higher prize values with high scores to help make it possible to offset cost if you invested in each design.
I would also like to see the design criteria be part of the voting process. As others have stated, I to have changed the way I play because I have learned that design appeal is all that is weighed, not the stated challenge or defined ‘client design request’.
I hope they continue to up the art collections and maybe add pillows or other accessories. Improve the affordability! I mean it is a digital product. I would love to encourage friends to join and play but I always hesitate over the cost.
Latest version crashes 4/5
I’ve been having fun with this game. However the app now tells me I need to download latest version from the App Store. There is no other version and the app keeps crashing. Hoping you are working on a fix.
Love the game but recently updated now can’t play anymore 😢😫 2/5
Last update and now it’s stuck and will not do anything don’t want to reinstall I will loose everything I’m not happy 😡
Great game but! 4/5
Like many others have stated the game is addictive and fun but the rating of designs is not always easy to understand why rated so low! Not happy with having to buy wall art so sometimes I just stop playing since I know having know art will make for a low score! I like the idea once you buy it’s yours or at least for more than 5 uses! Hmmm a few glitches but I enjoy!
