So far I have been super impressed with the 3d home design software that I downloaded, mostly because it has allowed me to build my dream home from top to bottom. Of course I (unfortunately) do not have the money make the plans that I created in the house design software come to reality, but I guy can dream right? I mean they thought of everything down to the types of women I want floating in the pool haha. In all seriousness though, if anybody is actually in the process of planning or building a new home, I think that this could be a great asset to the process. I would say that the best home design software allows you to play with every single detail from paint color to landscaping plants, and also provides a virtual walk through at the end so that you can see if you missed anything.
I am ready to say that playing around with 3d home design software is my new favorite hobby, and one that maybe one day I could parlay into an actual career. I started out with some home design software free options that I downloaded to my iPad, then once I became more comfortable I decided to pay a little bit of money to purchase something for my desktop computer. With this program I was able to do so much more than that app including planning everything out down to the type and color of car I wanted in the driveway! This is the dream home that I have come up with, complete with single lane lap pool in the courtyard and double garages at the lower level for my sports cars (need to work on purchasing those though).
I do not think that I can sing the praises of 3d home design software loud enough after we used it to plan out a new pool that we are thinking of adding right behind our house. I knew that you could use home design software to plan out interior spaces like kitchens, bedrooms and bathrooms, but for some reason I had never thought to continue it outside. It made it so easy to play around with different shapes, depths and color schemes for the pool without committing to paying an landscape designer or spend the money to install something that we weren't quite sure about. I imagine that landscape design software 2020 has come quite a long way because you can do so much with it.
If I had one tip for using 3d home design software it would be to pick a program that offers you suggestions as well as the ability to build. Unless you are an actual professional remodeler or architect looking around for free cad software, I assume that the majority of us really don't know what we are doing (at least to that level). I think it is always helpful to have some guidance on the steps to follow so that you don't miss anything important. I also like when the programs have inspiration photos or starting designs because they give you a great starting point if you don't know where to begin. It is crazy that after a few hours or a few days of working with these programs, you can actually have a complete home design 3d image like this as well as all the plans for how to get there.
I am not surprised that 3d home design software has been gaining in popularity this year because it makes the remodeling or building process so much more simple and inexpensive than in the past. Of course, free house design software is not going to be a replacement for an actual architect because you will need one to go over everything at the end. But it certainly offers a great money saving option for you to play around with ideas and determine exactly what you want before you go to a professional. Plus it just makes home design fun to get to scroll through materials, finishes, and colors at your own leisure and discover decor styles or designs that you may have never thought to use.
Can you believe that these photos are actual virtual renderings that I downloaded from our 3d home design software? This was just a free program that my husband found somewhere on the internet but, as you can see, we were able to build and furnish the place from the ground up. It is crazy how detailed interior design software in nowadays, especially with the ability to update the program regularly to import new styles and trendy items. We had so much fun decorating this room because it was like shopping for items without actually spending money, so that we knew exactly what we wanted before we actually went to the store. With programs like this, home interior design is just so much easier for the amateur designer or homeowner.
