Design Home (iOS) Tips & Strategy Guide: 6 Hints You Need to Know

Design Home is a new simulation game from Crowdstar that you can now download for free for your Android or iOS device. It’s a game for anyone who loves home decorating – designing interiors for your home and bringing your design dreams to life. You can shop for the items you like, decorate your rooms in your own style (as the game would allow), and be recognized among the new game’s many players for your creativity. So how does this game work, beyond the interior design mechanic that underpins it? Well, it also happens to be a social title, as other players will be the ones judging your work. You’ll also have to follow certain instructions, as well as stay within your budget and make sure not to run afoul of the restrictions.

We would call this one of the more interesting and original new games out there for mobile players, as it takes on a subject that doesn’t get too much attention in a mobile landscape full of RPGs, CCGs, Match 3 titles, and endless casual games. That makes it largely unchartered territory for first-timers. So with that said, we hope you can check out the tips and tricks in this Design Home strategy guide, which covers different topics that could be of help to new players.

1. Don’t Go Overboard With Your Spending

Your first instinct may be to spend like crazy when you see all the furniture choices. You may want to go for the more expensive items the moment you can afford them. But that’s not really the wisest move, especially when you’re fairly new to the game. You should be working toward improving your star score, and earning more money so you can afford the really good stuff in the game.

2. Minimalism Does Work At Times

The game will give you a variety of design challenges, each with their own requirements and goals. You may need to combine furniture items in a certain way, have so many items of one color, etc., but in the end, it won’t be as free-form as the game’s description may make you think at first. You would be able to add your own choice of items, but in the end, meeting the requirements is what’s most important. Keeping this in mind, you may choose to add or not to add these additional accessories, but try to resist the temptation to overdo things. As you’re being judged by other human players, you don’t want anything to compromise your star score.

3. Keep The Theme In Mind

All of the design challenges in the game have their own specific theme. Follow that theme and let that inform your purchases and designs. If you need to create something minimalistic and modern, for instance, leave the heavy leather items out of there, because they obviously do not belong. Likewise, avoid fancy-looking items if you’re asked to create something more rustic in nature.

4. Keep On Voting

You may, at some points, run out of money to buy stuff, and the only thing left for you to do would be to wait until the votes are in and the judges have made their decision. Make good use of the downtime by voting as much as you could. For each five votes you cast, you’ll get three keys, and you will need those keys to submit designs. That also ensures that you remain a key component in the Design Home community, while preserving the game’s integrity. And speaking of that last note, don’t rush through your votes and pick any room willy-nilly. Make sure you’re voting for your personal favorite, and being as honest as possible!

5. Monitor The Pl Ayers With Top Star Scores

Want to know who’s doing well in the game? Want to know the secrets to their success? Tap on the trophy icon found on the bottom left of your main screen, and you’ll be able to view a list of Design Home’s top players. Look at what these users have designed, and try to pick up their best practices – what do they do right, and what makes their works so popular? Use their techniques, but be careful not to do the exact same thing they’re doing; copying someone else’s work could affect your rating and leave judges unimpressed, after all!

6. Play The Game Regularly

Last, but not the least, we would advise you not to rush your way through things, just as we had briefly stated in the other tips. Earning money in the game will turn out to be harder than it is at the start, so patience is key. Regularly playing Design Home also helps; log in to the game daily and collect your rewards. But you don’t have to play the game that regularly; it’s the login that counts when it comes to the rewards, and you may sometimes have to take a break if competing with a world full of virtual interior designers is too much pressure.

And this ends our guide for Design Home. In case you know other tips for the game, feel free to drop us a line in the comment section!
