Total 3D Home Design Deluxe can help you remake your living room, renovate that spare bedroom, add a family room or design an entire house. It's top interior design software with professional panache, intended for the average person. You don't need design skills to use this application.

This home design software is a good way for casual users to brainstorm ideas on everything from house design to interior design, and even landscaping. It provides you with basic tools to dream and sketch out your interior décor ideas. This product lacks several features our top three products have, but it offers adequate tools to handle usable interior designs.

The SmartRoom Blocks feature lets you create complete rooms automatically. This can save time and help spur design ideas. This software has color-coded floor plans that help to distinguish windows, doors, furnishings, appliances and more within your designs.

You can design in 2D and 3D. This software lets you import images to use in your designs, such as pictures of furnishings and fixtures, and to simulate interior lighting and shadows. It offers photo rendering that transforms your designs into lifelike images.

This room design software does not let you create custom animations – or movie-like walkthroughs – of your finished designs. Moreover, you cannot view designs in dollhouse view (with the roof removed) or in wireframe view (a 3D line drawing, of sorts).

Total 3D interior design software offers more design options than you could need, including combinations of paint, wallpaper, flooring, tiles and carpets. You can choose from more than 40 window and door types and customize them to fit your designs.

It has more than 1,000 sample plans, a materials paintbrush and tools to generate stairs, cabinets, window coverings and more. There is a window treatment tool that lets you place varied shades, valances and more.

In addition, this software tracks estimated and actual costs for materials and labor. It gives you a final price tag on every project you design.

One of the deficiencies in Total 3D Home Design Deluxe is it that it cannot design electrical and lighting plans or HVAC and plumbing plans.

Total 3D Home Design Deluxe software offers thousands of brand-name products and materials to choose from and place in your designs. These includes appliances, bathroom fixtures, cabinets, doors, windows, flooring, light fixtures, stairs, interior furniture and more. It also offers a photo gallery of design ideas to help you generate ideas for your designs.

This house design software does not offer design elements to accommodate handicap accessibility, fireplaces, outdoor furniture and lighting, or additional free elements that you can download.

Nothing alienates customers more than unresponsive customer service. Our phone calls to company representatives were unreturned, as were our emails to customer care. This is a black mark on any company, especially when phone numbers and email addresses are listed on the company's website, but there is no live chat. Only our email to the company's public relations department was promptly answered.

The company offers a manual and tutorials within the application, but not online.

It lets you view designs in 3D and offers photo rendering to transform your designs to look like real rooms. However, you cannot view your designs and plans in dollhouse or wireframe views.
