This fun home makeover game is based on the Property Brothers TV show on HGTV.

Why we chose Property Brothers Home Design:

  • The app is free to use with no real need to purchase anything in the app to get ahead.
  • Work with the Property Brothers themselves to design someone’s home.
  • Play a matching game in order to get more coins to spend on paint and furniture.
  • Visuals look more realistic than some of the other apps, making it feel like you’re really decorating someone’s home.

Be warned, this game is super addicting, so we just had to put it at the top of our list.

This app is great for those who don’t want a story element to their design app.

Why we chose Redecor:

  • The app is free to play, and we did not see any need for in-app purchases, which makes it a great choice to try out.
  • Decorate rooms and submit them to be rated by other users.
  • Once they’re rated, receive coins and items to use in future decorating.
  • This app has many more options for colors than some of the other apps. You can really get creative with this one!

You'll really feel better about your interior design skills after a few hours with this app.

  • This app is free to use, and you don't have to pay to get ahead.
  • Work with many different professionals, including a client, an interior designer, and a contractor to put together the perfect room.
  • Play a matching game in order to get more coins to use on furniture and paint.
  • The characters are quirky and have funny lines making this a fun app.

Pick from options within a blueprint to create the perfect room. Easy to play and makes you feel like a real designer.

This is a story app about a designer who just graduated college.

Why we chose My Home:

  • Follow the main character's story as she finds her first apartment and starts decorating it.
  • Easy decisions! Choose between three options at a time for each piece of furniture or wallpaper.
  • This app is free to use.
  • Play a matching game to get more coins to use on furniture and wallpaper.

This is fun for people who want a stronger story element in their games and for younger players who like more of a step-by-step experience.
