Was a fantastic game but recent issues mean my game is frozen after years of playing. Contacted customer support and got no real help. Lots of other players complaining about this same issue on the Facebook page. Very disappointed.

Love this game so much. HOWEVER the fact that furniture disappears after you use it five times would deter me from EVER spending real life money. There are not enough opportunities to earn game cash, a room can cost several thousand dollars to design and then you only get $500 reward for it. Plus the you use disappear as well? The rewards from voting are also extremely low you have to get a perfect 5 to win any cash and even then again, it’s very low. I would spend way more time on this app if the rewards were more commensurate with effort and would certainly spend real money if the items stayed in your inventory once purchased. Also... many more options of decorative items should be provided these are not as realistic as the rest of the game as decorative items are much cheaper and easier to come by than furniture. If these complaints were resolved I would be on this game for hours every day and spending cash too.
Only now realised after reading other reviews that u only borrow items for the longest time I’ve been wondering why my items keep disappearing after I buy them again and again
I’ve complained numerous times now, to get useless replies, obv not interested in sorting out their problem. I use my own money (not pretend) to buy coins & diamonds to purchase items to use, for purchasing on their game, you get a score. I’ve showed them the room I finished ages ago now, also all the items I used, from snapshot I took of what gets shown underneath your room, saying clearly items I used!
I’ve been fobbed off repeatedly, & now they said that was a tutorial for new users, those items are not available in inventory. Absolute lie! I took snapshots of all those items, still available in inventory to purchase now. They aren’t in my inventory as I used them on that design, to get nothing! They will not refund me for the items, they say not being scored still is a glitch they will look into, they’ve said that for the last 5 or 6 messages now, taking two days to answer each of my messages. They are happy to take your money, this company makes millions, yet they are blatantly not interested in their customers, telling lies to not pay my money back or compensate in coins & diamonds. I will find out how to take this further as it is theft in my opinion, I haven’t got what I paid for, so I must have consumer rights
It’s a great game, sure! But all there is is challenges. Also, I’m fed up of having to buy everything! I know this is a short review, but oh well!!
Love this game however it would be great if there were more filter options eg. Price low to high as sometimes I feel I am scrolling through the many options of furniture.
Used to be a good game but now money grabbing.
If you want to have a reasonably successful design you will need to buy plants, pictures etc which can only be bought with diamonds and items are only valid for 5 uses, (if u are lucky - they seem to mysteriously disappear). The ‘generous’ daily bonus of 500 diamonds will not buy a plant or decent picture anymore, so you will need diamonds.
The game often slows down and is glitchy, the voting system is in my opinion rigged and lots of other small issues, odd scaled furniture especially as prizes, colours displaying differently, repeated prizes (ie you end up with 10 pink beds which can’t be used)
To conclude yes it can be fun but to progress and enjoy = ££££€€€€€
I honestly approve of this it is so relaxing and brings out the designer in me anyone can play this no stereotypes this is soo fun! ❤️
Great app, addictive! But you don’t get enough money to buy a lot of items
I’m beyond fed up I’ve bought things that never appeared in my inventory and the customer service team never did anything about it. The app has now disconnected itself from Facebook and won’t let me log back in so I’m back on level 2 as a guest. It’s so far beyond annoying. It’s a great game in principle but it’s always crashing and breaking. I spend a small fortune with you every month please treat your customers better and don’t take a week to reply to queries and close the query before it’s actually sorted out. You don’t deserve to earn anything the way you treat people!
I love this game sooo much! I think that you should be able to earn more money, because you run out so quickly. Otherwise I think this game is great fun!!
Game is useless unless you want to keep spending actual money on it! U buy furniture and you only get to use each piece a handful of times then you need to rebuy it all over again. All items are like this. Items are way overpriced. Again, probably to try and force you into spending your actual real money. And there’s no real way of getting any further on in the game, no way to progress unless you guessed it, you SPEND REAL MONEY. Because if you don’t have money to buy the overly priced items you can’t enter the challenges. U need to fill the rooms with furniture. But with no money how can you do this? Oh right buy money with your actual real money. If you don’t you can’t enter the challenges. Then you can’t do nothing! Uninstalling immediately! Such a con! It’s all about money money money!
Okay but I have no clue what to do and it gets a bit boring because you mostly decorate living rooms and nothing else 😔
I enjoyed this game for half an hour but to save my progress I required a Facebook account. I don’t have one and don’t see why I should have to just to play this game. Why not just allow users to sign up with an email address? Disappointing.
It’s obvious to see why the price filter isn’t included in the game. However, I’ve been a loyal player and invested a lot in the game- spending my own time and money. I think it’s about time a price filter was added so we don’t have to spend looking through items that we can’t afford.
I love this app, I play it almost everyday but my main issue is that the couple times I’ve tried to log into my Facebook account with it to borrow items, the game doesn’t load and I have to delete it and start all over again. It’s so irritating that this happens every single time.
The help support is useless sometimes
Very annoying because there is so much potential and I enjoy playing but it crashes every 5 minutes so I don't get chance.
If it doesn't get fixed soon I will have to delete it :(
This game is ok but the furniture costs LOADS and you have to get ‘keys’ to enter competitions! I’m not being mean tho.🦁
In all of the tasks they need a cabinet and I don’t have enough money so I cannot make money by completing the tasks. I love the game but you cannot log out
This app claims it's a '#1 top home design game' No, there are SO many which are better. This is so bad just don't get it. You can't even be creative!
This app is just so disappointing. You spend time on designs, only for them to become completely blank rooms when you enter the design! Design Home Support are useless, offer no explanation, and do not reply to your messages when you have a problem. My advice would be to avoid this app. It’s a complete waste of time!
The game is like the best wooohooo
... meaning you lose the designs you created and you have to start from scratch. I constantly have to restart the app in order for it to update too. Extremely annoying. Puts me off using it now.
I really love this game! It is a great way to get creative and put some real thought into the designs. However, the fact that you “purchase” furniture which you can only use 5 times is a real rip off. It wouldn’t be so bad if the rewards reflected the investment made or if more coins and diamonds were given for the amount of time actually played. I think you abuse the fact that players will want to invest in their inventory and should make it easier to get good scores and more rewards so that people can have the choice whether they spend money or not. Alternatively make the items a bit cheaper as sometimes you physically can’t complete a room as the requirements only allow you to choose really expensive items.
Absolutely love playing the game, but to buy the good stuff you need diamonds and to get diamonds you either have to buy them (no, thank you) or you have to download games to and complete levels to get them.
The problem is half the time you don’t get the diamonds, you send off to support with photographic evidence and they say you can’t have the diamonds for stupid reasons, for example the game was not downloaded,
If the game is under pending then the game was downloaded so therefore you should get the diamonds you have earned! Been cheated out of a lot of diamonds by tapjoy!
Love this game as you get to express your self!
Having played the game for over 3 months, literally every single day. I must confess I really enjoyed playing it but I wish one could get physically rewarded for playing this game, I mean make money from it whilst putting lots of effort into creativity... I strongly believe the developers are making some cool cash from the game, stemming from the adverts and the real world furnitures/items advertised/sold on the game.
I have only given it a 3 star (I think I’ve been very liberal with this) because players are being ripped off with the purchase of furnitures/items which can only be used 5 items...
Dear developers, I know you can see this, please leave peoples’ purchased items to be used innumerably, let us stock up our inventories and don’t take the items/furnitures after the fifth use- this is very annoying, especially if you are purchasing with one’s real hard earned money. This significantly leads to people (such as the likes of me) sourcing/researching and looking out for home design cheats- how to get free diamonds and cash to sustain playing the game and buying furnitures one wishes to purchase.
On a serious note, please can someone tell me how to get lots of free diamonds and cash, the options available on the game are hard to get such as- you have to play a game for a week to earn diamonds, watch videos for only 15 diamonds and these are very limited in a day. I’m tired and in desperate need of tons of free diamonds and cash. Please help!!!
Many thanks in advance!!
From an Ardent Player
I love this game a lot because I like to decorate my room now and then so it’s a good game for me and I really really enjoy it :)
I actually really enjoy playing this game, it's become rather addictive. However as a lot of other users have mentioned it does have its flaws and I hope the makers will review this because what you spend is far more then what you get which doesn't add up at all. Pay out more or charge less for the items or just let us keep em all together!
I love the game and would spend money on it too. However, I refuse to put any of my money into a game that doesn’t let you keep the items you purchase.
the game itself is similar to Covet fashion game but with furniture and house design instead. (Covet lets you keep the items you purchase and can use in other contests without a set amount of times. )
I really wish they would change the limitations on how many times you can use an item. It’s ridiculous.
the game itself is fun but I will not be playing it anymore for the reasons stated above.
I enjoy this game apart from:
All items in your inventory can only be used 5 times and then they are taken away, so if you purchase something you don’t keep it permanently, you just get to use it 5 times, that’s really underhand.
Voting, this really annoys me because you can follow a design to the finite detail , it does not mean you will win because the people who, play the game then vote for the best design and tend to forget what the design was about. Example recent winners of a “eclectic” dining room , it was not at all eclectic so that makes following the requirements of a design a complete waste of time. If you want to win a design it seems the best way to go is to make a room one colour and add wall decor that is the same eg 3 paintings of a leaf . Not in the spirit of the design requirements and so top designers are tacky , but voters decide . I do really enjoy designing the rooms though, and I think you should be able to keep what you pay for .... but if that was the case the developers would not be making money out of us would they. I’ve decided to continue with no further purchases and if I can’t participate in an event I’ll wait until I can.
This is a good app but there is one problem you have to pay for furniture. You can never really get the things you want because you don't have enough money
The makers of this game need to change the voting system, I would suggest a tiered system so only voters above a high level say 55 get to vote on others at the same level, you at least then would know the person voting is a serious player who votes based on the criteria used not just on anything, at present high level players get no reward or help to progress, this needs addressed otherwise it's a pointless game, you cannot get higher , should also be some items you purchase you can keep so you can at least have a base stock, come on developers you must have made a bomb start rewarding loyal players
Love the game concept, love the amount of different products but oh my god.....WHO HANGS THE SAME PICTURE ON THEIR WALL THREE TIMES?! It SO bizarre that these designs win 5 stars. How many real houses do you go to where they have the same naff butterfly picture three times in a row on the same wall?!
Also, would be good to have more opportunities to win diamonds
Fix the bugs PLEASE!!!!!!!!!
It’s a really good concept for a game, which i initially enjoyed. It helps you with styling the rooms but soon enough your money will run out quickly. You aren’t provided with a lot of money to begin with so you end up having zero money just after a few challenges.
This app keeps crashing and disconnecting and customer service is pretty much non existent. Such a shame as the game itself is great.
Enjoyable but much can be improved. Main thing when voting between two designs, the designers should be up to the same level. It's not fair that someone on level 5 for example is being compared to level 25 The items are better and have more item choices the higher the level so it's not fair to be compared to another when the other has more options.
Once your start up cash is gone, which isn’t very long, you can’t proceed unless you purchase cash.
You are awarded $500 per day, providing you claim it but when a side table would probably average $1,500 it’s gonna be one hell of a long time to furnish a whole room, particularly as you have to include some specified designer brands.
I enjoy this game but it’s all living rooms and occasionally a bedroom or outside space. Houses have more than 3 rooms so would be nice to have more dining areas or an entrance hall to design. Would be also nice if you could place a choice of items in one space say an assent chair or dining chair. At the moment you can only place one item of furniture from the specific category.... just a shame really but designing is really fun.
For starters, I do genuinely enjoy using this app and it’s awesome how you can buy items from real life and find links to their websites.
One of the unfortunate problems with this app is that I put so much effort into all of my designs and they never get the votes they deserve. I understand that it is up to the users but I try to always colour coordinate the furniture but I never get good ratings.
I love this game so much! The only problem I have is that you have to spend money to get decorations otherwise your room is extremely bare and you loose ratings during votes! When you buy an item it’s not yours to keep you only get to use it 3-4 times which isn’t much when you have about 4 challenges a day. You end up getting sucked in and spending lots of your money on this app which is a shame!
Too much money for something you only borrow. Once you buy an item doesn’t make it yours you can borrow it 5 times some items are less. This game puts items on that are impossible to buy unless you buy gems. EVERY PLANT ,PICTURE,VASE AND TREE all need gems. Kids have no chance and you can’t win or make a room work without. I’m so disappointed
Great Mae you should get this
I have been playing this game for a long time, I have over 1800 designs submitted including a number of them for the next 3 days. Today they all vanished from my submission table! Would like to know why. Since I can figure any other way to communicate with whoever runs this App, review it my only hope. Maxima
In order to be good you have to buy things basically. If you don’t it’s very hard to progress and becomes useless! Needs to offer some free things in order to be good
It was fun at first but then I ran out of money and diamonds now I’m stuck and can’t complete designs because things are more expensive and it would take weeks to get 1k+ of diamonds just from watching videos. I hate games that are unfair like this why should I have to spend money on a game to level up it’s basically like saying this game isn’t for poor people
