Great for ideas, doing "wotif" arranging
I found this v useful firstly when doing initial planning for a house we were lucky to be able to have built. Then when our architect laughed at our designs and came up with a mor sensible design we could play around with door layouts and lastly furniture arrangements to see where existing stuff might fit and where we might need to add things. It can be fiddly and irritating to select and move things without inadvertently resign an object. Staircases are a bit of a pain. The ability to view how it all looks in 3D is excellent.
Self built house
Best app I ever used.
I am not a designer, my background is in healthcare.
I used this app to redesign some aspects of the internal layout of our architect designed self-build house. It enabled me to see how the house would work, and place the electric points as well as built-in cupboards and kitchen. It gave me confidence to move a bathroom and also the kitchen door.
I was so pleased with this app that I have recommended it to some of professional tradesmen we used. The feedback I got from them was was excellent!
The updates since completion of the build mean that the app is even better, and am still using it for showing the landscaper how we want our front driveway and rear terrace and garden.
I even used it to recover a sofa, plotting out the pieces of material needed in order to buy the correct amount of material.
This app is amazing and better than other apps like it. But there is something it's missing that it's rivals have - not being able to create a 2nd floor! Bungalows are cool and all but it can get boring, if possible I would love this to be a feature of the app. Especially since there's stairs!
