Total 3D Home Design Deluxe has enough of the attributes of solid house building software to land it a spot in our top 10 rankings, but usability issues and lack of design tools hamper this home design software. There are many sample plans to choose from, and decorating tools allow you to choose any room in the home and decorate it with one of many pre-designed templates.

One of the standout features of this house plan software is its large selection of sample floor plans. More than 1,000 sample floor plans are available in this application, which provides you with plenty of options for creating that perfect home. There are also editable room templates to quickly get your home furnished. To put your home design together, you can click on a room template, drag it to the appropriate location on your plan and then resize it to match your desired dimensions. It's fast and simple.

To further help plan your home remodel, this floor plan design software comes with a cost estimator. The cost estimator generates the cost of materials used to renovate your home, helping you budget before you invest time, effort and money into your project.

Total 3D Home Design Deluxe provides a library of more than 500 objects. These objects are diverse, and there are items for every room in your home. There are 48 cabinet combinations available, which helps you design the perfect bathroom and kitchen. Even though the object library and the cabinet options seem extensive, they are not as large as most of the other products we tested.

There have been reports from users about this software crashing during operation, as well as reports of multiple error messages during use. The navigation tools within the software are not as easy to use as other home design software that we reviewed.

If you experience any problems or have a hard time getting past the learning curve of this floor plan software, Total 3D Home Design Deluxe offers several support resources. Email and telephone support are available if you wish to speak directly with a customer support representative. There are FAQs and video tutorials available to help you along the way.

Total 3D Home Design Deluxe Summary:

Total 3D Home Design Deluxe has the features to land a spot in our lineup, but usability issues keep the software from advancing up our ranks. There are many home and room templates to get novice users started, and the cost estimator helps you plan for home renovation. This inexpensive software is a good tool for beginning software designers.
