Sweet Home 3D for Mac allows you to design and layout your home's floor plan. Input the current layout or proposed home, and then manipulate elements within it, in order to create a layout that you love.

Pros

Interesting 3D rendering: As you draw your 2D elements onto the graph in the top half of Sweet Home 3D, it renders a 3D sketch of your room below. To see your room take shape as you manipulate the elements within it is a lot of fun and very useful, because of the instant feedback on your design choices.

Easy to get started: In some ways, this software feels like a chess game. It is easy to learn how to play with it, but it could take a lifetime to master. However, to jump in and design your first couple of rooms is extremely easy, and we were able to do so with no direction whatsoever.

Cons

Limited selection of elements: The reality is that there is no end to the number of things that people may want to put in their homes. There are also many variations on standard items, such as a dresser. A little more variation in the preloaded items to insert into the rooms would have been welcome.

Limited help menu: The help menu appeared quite limited. All it seemed to do was point us to the appropriate place in the other menus, rather than providing an actual text-based help file for our inquiries.

Bottom Line

If you're considering redecorating, wondering how you could arrange furniture in a new home, or just like designing rooms in your imagination, you will love this software. It's a little restrictive, but it really is a lot of fun and easy to use.
