What Is Design Home: House Renovation?
Design Home is a game available in the App Store that allows you to design rooms using virtual pieces of furniture from around fifty well-known furniture brands such as Pottery Barn, Serena & Lily and Tommy Bahamas. The game also contains links to the websites of these brands in case you want to consider buying furniture for your real home.
Whilst the game is free to buy, in-app purchases are available. Many new players give up on the game because they run out of in-game dollars but with careful planning, it is possible to progress without using your real-life hard-earned cash.
This game was created by Crowdstar Inc., the company that created Covet Fashion. And if you aren’t familiar with that game, I’ve written another article about it.
Read on to understand how the game works and how you can progress through the levels without having to spend real money.
How Do You Play?
The game is played by completing “Challenges”. A challenge involves placing pieces of furniture into a room. It differs from many other home design games in that you don’t get to choose the wall colours, etc. Think of it as choosing pieces of furniture and decor for a room that is otherwise complete. Usually, they’re rooms in a house, but occasionally they may be somewhere like a TV studio or hotel lobby. Players choose and place required pieces of furniture and decor in the spaces provided.
Challenge results are determined by other players of the game who vote on designs. If a player receives four stars or higher, they win a piece of virtual furniture to use in future challenges.
Players progress through the game by reaching certain dollar values of room design costs. For example, once a player has placed $20,000 worth of furniture in room challenges, they move up to Level 2. When they spend $50,000, they move up to Level 3 and so on. Each time a player reaches a new level, more accessories such as pictures and plants become available, and they also receive a number of items to use for free.
