Maybe, you are planning to build a house for yourself or for a member of your family or to redecorate your existing home or apartment and want to see how it would look before buying and installing the actual furniture and accessories. This free program will allow you to do so in an easy and fast manner.

The program's interface is divided into four panels. From left to right, the first one shows the list of available items sorted by the type of room, for example, bathroom, living room, bedroom, and so on. The second panel is the plan of the house; you can drag any furniture and drop on any place of the plan. Once you have done this, you can put to the exact place where it would be, as well as turn it; change its size; and more.

The third panel shows the characteristics of each added item, while in the fourth one you can have a view of the room and its furniture. You can switch between a simple 3D view to a virtual tour, as if you were actually walking into the room and watching all its elements from different points of view.

Sweet Home 3D also allows you to add different colors, textures and types of illumination to get a better idea of how your home would look when finished. You don't need to be an architect to create a pretty accurate plan, but you need to spend some time using the different options of the program.

Although the application is absolutely free, you can make a donation if you wish.

max This program is really nice and easy to use.
I would like the wall angle to be fully flexible. Not limited to 15,30 or 45 degree. To be able to constructed a roof would be super too.
Unfortunately, the software is blocked from Windows 7 on one of our PCs.
