This New App Lets You Play (and Compete) to Design Your Own Home
If you’re anything like us (we know you are), you rearrange the furniture every season, between DIY projects and sometimes just for kicks. You might also spend every moment of your spare time designing your *future* homes in Sketchup. It sounds like the Design Home app by gaming platform Crowdstar is for you. This free app lets you decorate 3D living rooms, dining rooms, bedrooms and outdoor spaces on your smartphone or tablet, using furniture and decor pieces from primo brands like Design Within Reach, Serena & Lily and Taylor Burke Home. Whether your style is boho fabulous, rustic chic or Scandi sleek, you’ll enjoy free rein in the Design Home app to use all the iconic decor pieces you most covet in designing your rooms.
Give the app a whirl right now by taking part in HGTV’s launch challenges. In three easy steps, you’ll be able to interact with content from your fave home shows. (Lookin’ at you, Fixer Upper and Rehab Addict.)
Step 1: Browse the current challenges and see if one piques your interest. New challenges will be appearing three times a week, so you’ll have multiple chances.
Step 2: Choose a room to be your blank canvas, then try out furniture and decor pieces that fit your personal style. It’s like going on an AH-mazing home shopping spree, without ever spending a dime.
Step 3: Once you have a design you love, hit the submit button, then sit back and bite your nails while you see if it racks up the votes.
If your design gets voted up enough, it might be chosen by HGTV editors to appear on the site. Your 15 minutes of fame awaits!
