This app collects and shares data with 3rd parties. 1/5
By Hanna 225
Since downloading this app and connecting it to Facebook I have received hundreds of calls, texts and emails from third parties to include phishing scams and other con artists. I contacted the developer directly and they said others had complained but they do the best they can. This is not okay! It’s not enough they make money through their app but they have to sell consumers info too.
I loved this game. 2/5
I loved playing this game. It gave me an outlet when my husband didn’t want me to rearrange our furniture again. I even made a few in app purchase which I normally wouldn’t do. Sadly I have noticed in app purchase being made that I did NOT authorize and did not receive what was paid for. Has me wondering how many times I have missed “extra purchases”. I’m extremely disappointed.
Thanks DH! 5/5
By Elle Bhee
Just wanted to say thank you guys for the new & improved table decor, PLanT varieties and especially for the more refined selection of artwork from which to chose! This game just gets better so no complaints. I wouldn’t mind “Yard Sales” or monthly “Swap Parties” to curate vs the low scores earned on my “Clean-out Rooms”. Other that of course, many thanks!
Crash, crash, crash, and even more crash. I enjoy this game very much. I spend $$’s on this game every month because I enjoy it so. Please fix the crashing! I have lost $$’s and inventory and had to totally design a room from scratch.
This game is amazing you learn how to be a decorator I love this game
Cash and diamonds 4/5
By Vampdog 87
I think that if you still have cash and diamonds left when u summit a design the money you get for that design should be added to what you already have, not take left over money away from us
Costs An outrageous amount of money to enjoy 1/5
By CH. Marie
I really like this game. I like playing the game. It’s a fun concept with nice graphics. However, in order to actually enjoy the game you need TONS more diamonds than the game allots a user per day. Paying for diamonds gives enough to actually design freely and happily for only a few rooms as they burn up very quickly. The “free” options of getting diamonds through TapJoy have also proved a major disappointment. Shuffling through the annoying options, most of them requiring you to download shotty crap on your phone, more still costing a ton of time, money, and effort is a major buzzkill trying to enjoy the actual game. To top it off a good majority of the deals with tapjoy do not even successfully give you your diamonds, and after contacting them many times to have to solve that problem, they will actually dispute that you even completed offers even if you can show proof and receipts. Conclusion, I’d love to spend time playing the game, but the cost is outrageous. More diamonds per day is a must if I’d keep the game, and certainly won’t let my kids play it or recommend it.
Living design artwork room design 5/5

there goes the coffee table.
Game hasn’t been working all day 1/5
I have restarted my iPad multiple times, restarted the app, and tried fixing my WIFI. My WIFI is great, but my app hasn’t been working all Sunday. It won’t let me submit designs. I can earn more diamonds, and vote but that’s it. I can’t enter into any challenges, even though it will let me design the room, I finish it, and then I can’t submit it.
By Mello 2335417
I agree with Robinpack 220. Those are my exact thoughts.
I love this game, but... 3/5
I love this game, but I hate that all of the cutest stuff is limited and it costs an arm and a leg. Especially if you want to stock up on the cute decor that you know you won’t be able to get after about a week. Also, it takes forever to level up and the rewards for challenges are pretty slim.
Completely addicted! 5/5
I love this game. Although, it would be kind of cool if you could zoom in on the products once you’ve placed them so you could get a better look at the patterns & colors. Other than that, it’s great!
Love concept but there are issues 3/5
I became frustrated and deleted from my older phone due to crashes. I would lose the money I spent and my design. I am having a similar issue on my new iPhone. I will be creating a room and it crashes and I lost my design.
Also, I am not spending money on a game. It seems that those who do should compete with each other and those who don’t buy packages should be in a different category.
Home Design 5/5
By Queen Beast
Best Home decoration game out there I love it
I loved this game- loved it so much I justified buying a bunch of the crappy tap joy offers just to get enough diamonds to actually have enough furniture to play the game. First of all, no room looks good without pictures or plants. But they all cost diamonds and the game only give a tiny amount of those each day. So you’re forced to use real money if you actually want to make a room look good. You can trade diamonds in for cash but not vice versus? Why? Why have diamonds and cash anyways? Why not one or the other? Why? Because they know you want the things you need diamonds to purchase and it’s just one more way they get you to use real money to buy things. Greedy is the one word of use to describe the creators of this game. Don’t download it, don’t get sucked in. I’m about to delete it from my phone, it’s such a waste of money.
Addictive, Fun, and Rigged 2/5
By Mz Beaded Treasures
I love this game but gave it 2 stars because it’s unfair!! I’ve been playing daily and spending a lot of money to develop designs according to the challenges. The game makes you think you’re voting on other people’s designs but you’re not!! I’ve seen designs exactly like mine get 5’s and ugly ones get 5’s where I scored extremely low. It all boils down to feeding your money to play the game.
I’ve been playing this game everyday since April 2018, non stop and it cheats you!!! I’ve bought furniture or won furniture, used one or two items with 4 to 3 of the items left, and it tells me sorry, it can’t be found it in the warehouse. It doesn’t replace it or refund the money!! If you don’t feed the developers a lot of money, they won’t let you get past 4.60 stars, and that drops low as well............
Love / Hate this game 2/5
I am addicted to this game and I love this game - but unfortunately there are many disappointments which are compelling me to just delete the game and not waste my time-efforts-money.
I have the most issue with the voting and scoring system. This needs to change. We rely on other players to vote between 2 different designs. I’ve participated in this voting as well.
I have noticed that some designs are elaborate and well done going up against one that just has the requirements to enter. This is incredibly lopsided and unfair.
As a player sometimes I enter a design using the minimum entry with what I have in my inventory - never my best work - just to get some cash. These designs get higher scores than the ones I put more thought in!
I’ve spent real money on this game as well. When we buy something in this game we should either get unlimited uses of the furniture/decor or at the least more than 5!
It takes forever to level up.
I love being able to filter furniture by style-color-brand. It would be great to be able to filter by price and by cash or diamonds.
I read other comments for this game and they are all pretty much the same as mine. I sincerely hope the developers consider these disappointments and make some changes. Otherwise I’ll be weaning myself off this game.
Fun but ridiculous 3/5
Ok, so this is a bit of a rant but anyways this game is really fun. It is interesting to be able to design different spaces. However, another method of voting would probably be better because all people vote for are the designs with flowers filling the whole area. They don’t go by the description of what the area is supposed to look like but they get 5 stars anyways. Be more original than just flooding the whole space with pretty flowers.
Great game when it works. I agree with a previous review that this game is mainly to make the developer money. When something happens, customer service is last on their priority list. Then when they do get back to you, it’s a story and they never fix the problem you had or offer a solution. You can tell who spends money by the number of extras included in their designs. Those are the people with the higher scores and who earn more rewards. It’s a shame that the developer has forgotten that this is supposed to be an entertaining game not a gambling game to spend money on trying to win things.
Awesome but about earning money 5/5
By K dog sheep pig hamster
I love this game. It is about one of the best games ever but I run out of money too quickly.
Things that I wish were better 4/5
Love this game so much, but I spend so much money. Maybe there should be rewards to those who spend a lot of actual money? I also really miss the fun wall paper rooms. They seem to be few and far between as of late. I try to just do the daily challenge as I end up spending more money if I do multiple rooms. Please bring back funky walls!
Design home 1/5
This game is a great game but you don’t have a lot of money so you can’t play it that often and you can’t play the game without making so I give it a 1 star rating because of the money problem
Horrible at resolving issues 1/5
I bought a premium seascape package and only received half of the contents. I messaged them twice for help and got the same generic answer with nothing resolved. Don’t waste money on this game because you’re not guaranteed to get what you pay for
Item disappeared 3/5
I don’t understand why once you buy or win something you only have limited uses. In your other game Covet Fashion once you earn or buy you can use it forever. It just makes it almost impossible to play when all your items are gone.
Don’t waist your real money!!!! 1/5
I enjoy this game because I love decor. I think it definitely needs to be updated. Its not fair we are at the mercy of voters who don’t vote fairly. Ive seen many designs from others and myself who should have received 5 stars, and only ended up receiving 3 or 4 stars. Its ridiculous!!!! Im about done with this app. Its not worth purchasing items because many do not take the voting seriously. 💯🤯💥🤛🏻 #justsaying
I love playing, but 3/5
Other players aren’t up to speed on keeping to the requirements, and are giving higher votes to rooms that were not created within the requested style just because they suit personal preference, I suppose.
I just did a very nice room around the requested “rustic” theme, using a leather couch and rough wood side tables, etc, and didn’t even score a 4. I checked the top votes and the rooms are nice enough, but not rustic in any way. And there’s a dropdown that lets you choose the style you need, and items that match, fill the list.
I love doing the rooms but don’t like the way other players interpret the rules!

Was thrilled at first.... 1/5
My review echoes the extremely consistent frustrations others are reporting. Mainly: 1) Requires excessive spending to enjoy the game. Unlike most games, that reward skill, advancing here is closely aligned with how much money you spend. For one thing, purchased furniture should be OWNED and remain in inventory. 2) Competing in challenges is pointless when the winning rooms bear no relation to the challenge profile, and tend look like monochromatic showrooms that no sane person would want to live in. I was really thrilled by this game at first, so it’s a drag to have to stop. I’m giving it 1 star so I can get that nifty auto-reply from the “developer” saying how much they care about user experience. vvvvvvv
Restart issue 1/5
I love the game but it’s so annoying as it keeps crashing and restarting all the time! I’ve sent crash reports but nothing seems to be fixed.
Pretty but clearly not worth it 2/5
Downloaded and tried this game. It’s very pretty and designing rooms is fun. BUT- I managed to do six rooms before the starting money ran out. Usually games are generous at the start to get you hooked and it’s clear the amount you can get in this game afterwards is even more restrictive. You don’t “buy” the virtual furniture- you buy 5 uses of it. The amount of money you get daily can easily be spent on a single, relatively lower end piece of furniture. And basically every single room requires multiple specific pieces of furniture- furniture from a specific brand, specific color, whatever. So it looks like you can maybe design one room a day if you’re very careful and strategic with your spending. You can of course spend real money - so you can get “uses” of virtual furniture. I expected it to be like the games where you build up a stock of things over time and could spend real money to get a variety faster or to buy some specific special items. But nope, this one you’ll always be extremely limited and have to scrape for everything. It took me less than 20 minutes to design 6 rooms. If you want to play for 5 minutes per day or less or spend a bunch of money for things that you don’t even get permanently in game, thus is the game for you.
Where is my inventory? 1/5
I was enjoying it until I noticed furniture inventory that I’d paid for was slowly disappearing. 👎
Loving it again: Update 2/5
Play, only to spend time being creative. I haven't seen a 5 in a very long time. The voting is a joke. Want 5's put in all white furniture, or duplicate the wall art, every time! Design THE most boring room to be successful!
I'm not being bitter. This is the truth. Play for design, only. Very few get 5's, and that's because they never work the color wheel.
I have played for over a year now. I love the new artwork that everyone can get. But some items...I wish we could have access all the time.
I'm hoping that being able to level up easier will help with the feeling of being stuck.
These new items help to keep newbies competitive.
Okay but expensive 3/5
By Love to play except
I’ve been using this app for quite a long time. To compete for 5 star designs, you need to be ready to invest money. I did that for awhile but decided it was too pricey and now I just do it for fun. I stopped purchasing diamonds. I noticed that the furniture pieces get more and more expensive. This drags you into needing to invest more cash. I wrk around it but it’s disappointing that a popular game gets greedy. I have no doubt the inventor of this has gotten rich, but it’s at the expense of the players. Sad, but that’s how it goes. I’m hoping a new option comes out that leans to the clients in a reasonable manner.
No way to restart 1/5
The tutorial shows how to place items, but there is no explanation as to how the money and diamonds work OR how the challenges actually work (with required items you must buy etc.). So by the time I figured it out, I wasted all my money. Wanting to restart, I deleted and downloaded the app again... but the game refuses to let me restart AND keeps prompting to connect to social media to borrow items from friends also playing the game. Hard Pass.
Voting system is ridiculous 1/5
What the heck is wrong with your eyes people???
I am so disgusted & disappointed I this game. I have actually spent approx. $1,000.00 ( one thousand dollars) since 9-17-2017. Very ashamed to say I thought it was a legitimate game.
Only to finally prove that voting does not work at all like it should ! Don’t play unless you have lots of money to throw away, or don’t care about your score.
Needs to have “Houses” 4/5
I really like the game, but I’m constantly running out of money and gems! I would really appreciate it if you could have the Daily Bonus give you more gems and the challenges have a higher reward of money when you enter it. Also, I have the Covet Fashion game and I really like that you have a “House” you’re sorted into based on a couple of questions that you answered. I think that this game should have “houses” too. One last thing, you shouldn’t have to sign into FaceBook to borrow! On Covet, you can borrow one item from one of the members in your “house” each day. I really hope that you take this suggestion into consideration and do it. It would make this already amazing game just that much better. Thanks!👍🏻
Fix the voting and it would be perfect 4/5
This game is a lot of fun, but the voting makes no sense. In order to obtain more keys, you have to vote in rooms. The voting should be made on a star system that you can give to each individual, rather than picking between two that you like best. This makes no sense because you’re not voting for the #1 room. They should make it where you vote on each room and give it your own rating. Then, give a key for each room done. Other than that, it’s a great game.
The happier your customers are the more loyal they’ll become and more money they’ll spend. So many greedy decisions from this company and SO many technical issues.
I recommend you find another app.
The good the bad and the ugly 3/5
This is the only design game worth playing, but seriously you guys need to lower your prices or reward more daily diamonds. It’s getting impossible to make decent styled rooms without purchasing stuff, and most challenges I can’t even do anymore. My score just keeps tanking and I’m tired of spending money. Make it just a little bit worth our while guys. This game has serious potential. Invest a little more in us and we may do the same to you.
By Sharon L.H.
Turn back. Don’t download this game. Design Home is fun. But to get anywhere you need to add your own funds. Which I’ve done
but I this is a one way relationship. I give and give and give money ($25/month) and get little in return. There’s a revolt in the making and they don’t seem to care. When I contacted support I was told (three days later), I got mansplained instead of “oops, let’s fix this”.
Money scam 2/5
I agree with some of the comments that, this game is geared to make money. The developer can say all they want but, in order to finish a particular game there are requirements to be met and, nine out of 10 times you need to purchase furniture or accessories to finish. The money you get/ win daily is not enough to finish individual games
Fun to scam 1/5
I’ve contacted the customer service numerous times to get the issue of my diamonds and NOW KEYS disappearing.. NO HELP AND NO RESPONSE! We spend our money only to have the items we pay for vanish!! Not cool at all!! This is happening too often to even enjoy this game anymore!
This is good 5/5
By blue pink purple
I like design home because it fun and unique so I think you should get it
I love this game, but yes it can be expensive. To unlock new levels is a million dollars in designs? And buying diamonds is not cheap. If a player doesn’t follow the design “rules” their design should not be in the voting. Also voting should be divided by levels in tens. Example if you are in levels 1 through 10. Your design should be compared to others in the same levels. Levels 11 through 20, an so on. Of course the higher the level you are on the better floor decor, wall decor & plants you have because you have unlocked them. Decor ( floor, walls, plants) should be able to be purchased on every design. Then if you have the best design you should receive 1000 diamonds. A 5 star should give 700 diamonds, a 4 star should be maybe 200 or 300 diamonds. What about pillows for decor instead of ugly poufs?
Too expensive to have fun 2/5
By Angie Rae
It’s fun when you have enough money and diamonds to buy enough furniture to design pretty rooms. Don’t want to spend lots of money on an app, which makes it not so fun.
Broken - where should I begin... 1/5
Whenever I watch videos through the Tapjoy add agent, it NEVER pays me my diamonds. I’ve also noticed that some of the ads, like Township, are displaying non-relevant gameplay videos. I know this because I own Township and the videos do not represent the style of game play in the game. I’ve notified Playrix of this false advertising because I’ve noticed that township is getting negative feedback due to these irrelevant videos showing gameplay.
I’ve also reported Crowdstar to the Better Business Bureau due to the poor customer service I have received in the past and maybe if this community wants results, you should too. Customer service has no idea how this game works and always replies with the same scripted message, letting you know your concerns have been forwarded to the design team. WHATEVER, I don’t think you have a design team, just a round file. No one is fixing the issues, you will never be reimbursed for cash lost in purchases as there is no inventory tracking, or cataloging system in place to keep track of how much slips through the cracks.
Originally I sent in several suggestions to improve gameplay but they have also hit the round file. Greedy, Entitled and Neglectful are the best words to describe this company. I will never spend again on this game, I refuse to enter a challenge that isn’t paying diamonds or the $2500 cash for the daily design.
My advice to all players, do not enter a room that only pays you $500, unless you truly want the furniture reward, then go all out with every slot filled. If you plan on dumping a room, dump with the cheapest furniture you can find and keep this cheap furniture stocked for future dumps. In order to continue gameplay you must be putting out less than you are making on a room, and never dump a room that only pays you $500 because it’s a waste of good furniture.
If you like this comment, give it a thumbs up, and this will keep it at the top of the reviews for future players to read. Most people don’t know how to do that so I will explain. After reading my long explanation click out of it, back to the ratings & review page. Once there, hold your finger over my review until the thumbs up thumbs down is available, this will then allow you to rate the review.
I really hope everyone can find some fun in this game and be able to design some amazing room designs. It’s not easy to avoid entering rooms but you can build a good inventory by using the requirements set, design a nice room, then screenshot it to save it for later, remove the furniture and it stays yours! Don’t enter a room for such a crappy reward of $500, the voters will never be generous and when you think you should be getting a 5.0, you’ll probably get something below 4.0 and this will piss you off realizing you’ve just lost so much and gotten so little.
Design Home Review 3/5
I have been playing Design Home for over a year now. I am disappointed with the decor items. I also think they are overpriced. I also see some of the furniture pieces when I go shopping and the prices don’t line up Design Homes prices. Further, there are times that you judge a decor item to be too large for the furniture piece, and then again you allow a decor piece that really looks too large for another piece. I have spent a lot of real dollars on the game and have super challenges to decorate a room the way I would like to because your requirements don’t fit with the look I would like to create. I keep thinking I will stop playing the game, but I have a lot of money invested, and I also enjoy creating the rooms, so thank you for the opportunity to express my frustrations with the game.
Great but... 3/5
I love playing the game but I don’t like The fact u have to vote on so many designs and only get 3 keys. And I would love to design more Kids rooms and outdoor spaces. I’m sick of doing living rooms.
