Review by CatGirl1643
FINALLY!!!!!!! This is the app I’ve always dreamed of. It is beautifully designed and easy to use. If you are looking for a simple, effective, working design app, this is the one for you. I have only had it for a few months, and I play it as much as possible, sometimes for hours every day. It has tens of thousands of furniture and accessory options, and doesn’t require you to put certain pieces of furniture in certain areas, you can do whatever you want. I have friends on this app, and am always excited when they post new designs. While you can play with strangers, there isn’t much you can do to interact with them, so it is very child friendly. I would recommend 9+ for this app, because there are links in the app that lead to websites where you can purchase furniture. I really love the challenges, because you can “compete” with other players in a friendly, non competitive way. The only problem I see with this app is the fact that you have to pay to use pictures of your own decor. Overall, this is an amazing app for kids and adults, and I totally recommend it to anyone searching for a good interior design app. 🤪😜😍😎♥️🤩
Review by Review Worth Reading
The first design I did was tedious to put together and very frustrating. I kept with it though, and I'm improving my skills for using the tools provided. If you are used to design programs like Photoshop, you'll be frustrated too. You are very limited on what you can put in a room because you have to find pieces that are the right angle for the room. There are a few options to edit what you choose, but not enough to make it perfect. You can change the perspective, but it Doesn't let you change the shape so you can get the right shape/perspective. There should be some paint brush options so we can add shadows where things should be darker, to help make the rooms look so flat and fake. I also wish that there were more filter options so I could search by style of room to only choose from the theme I'm going for. It would save me a lot of time looking through items. I really hope they add these things in the future. I love seeing the creative things people come up with, and I love the idea of these challenges to make you design a room for a specific purpose. The graphic designer in me needs these editing changes to happen for me to give a 5 star rating. I can already see that this app is going to be very addicting and fun!!

I NEVER write reviews for ANYTHING. I have been raving about this app ever since I stumbled upon it several days ago. I was itching for something to “play” as far as interior design goes (it’s my absolute obsession and dream). Just like others have said, there are other design games but cost money and MAKE you put things in certain areas. This game truly gives you freedom. I love that I can look at my “works of art” and know that I designed each and every aspect of it with the exception of the 4 walls and some small details (which are usually easily covered except they incorporate such beautiful details you wouldn’t want to anyway). There are endless options and OMG I just found the option to put your OWN elements into it as well. I am so thankful I found this because it’s truly a hobby of mine. Although I’ve been staying up way too late messing with it, it is amazing. I’m very disappointed in the people who have given this less than great scores. They’re either not very technically savvy, or pompous. Just saying!
Review by Nickel Nannie
I had used another design app. It scored your work and you had a limited selection of products, PLUS a budget! You could only do so much with their “way” of working. Then I found this app via Instagram and I’m absolutely hooked!!! My husband and I are getting our ducks in a row to retire within the next couple of years. We’re looking for a retirement home (not the nursing home type, the lakeside type)!! Plus, we will most likely remodel our home of 30 years, so our daughters can have it. This app gives ALL the information where I can purchase the items that I’m “playing” with! It’s a win win all the way around!! I would recommend it to home builders and real estate agents also. I just can’t get enough!
Review by Tortuevert
I love the fact that there are so many options to choose from and I’ve noticed that almost every three days or so there are new furnishing added to the collections so you end up with even more endless options. There are a couple things I wish that could be fixed though. When trying to be selective of the color of the furniture the color slider to choose your color isn’t very exact. It doesn’t have options like “red” but “rust red” and when you aren’t selective of this filter after swiping down for a long time you are able to find truly red furnishings. Also the scaling of small objects, I sometimes work a big room and I’d like to put stuff on shelves in the very back wall but the size of these accessories can’t go further and end up being too big. Maybe if you added a toggle slider to adjust the size to the smallest it can get. I wish you would be able to paint walls too. Or add a specific wall paper or texture. And lastly, I think it’s best to make sure that all the furnishings have all the angles so one can use them without being stuck with just 2-3 angles that might not work for our design. Above anything else I adore this app and would never stop using it if new spaces are added every once in a while.
Review by Mrs J 15
I am in love with this app. Love all the choice and the fact that it's free, unlike another one I tried. It does have a few issues though. One issue I've encountered is that I worked really long and hard a room. I clicked the save button, message popped up that said saved, exited the app but came back to make sure my room was saved. I was so frustrated and upset that my room vanished, along with all the time and hard work I put in for it. That needs to be fixed. Another issue is the fact when you try to use the masking tool to take out unwanted areas, it is really not the easiest thing to use. Since there are really no instructions on how to use this tool, you have use trial and error. Sometime you get the results you want and many times you don't. One suggestion would be to employ a system similar to Microsoft Word's program where you use lines and various shapes by snapping lines. Also, there needs to be a help button with a few answers on how to use some of the tools and buttons. These a few of the most frustrating problems I've seen. I hope this helps. I do love the game, just wish there were less frustrating moments. Would love yo hear your response. Thank you.
Review by Itachixxxxx
This app is so freaking cool! I had my eyes on a sofa from Pottery Barn for the longest time, but I wasn’t sure if it would match with my current living room. My wife and I were really frustrated because we did not want to spend that much money on something that we would end up hating. So, I went on the app store and did some searching. I came across DecorMatters and to my surprise, I was so happy and grateful. The augmented reality option makes my life SO much easier because I can finally be able to design my room just the way I like it without having to run back and forth from the furniture store lol!!! If you guys are looking for a good app, be sure to check out this one because it is totally worth it.
Review by Dibolacj
Of course this app is wonderful especially to us Polyvore addicts and it has a great feel, but there are some areas that really need tweaking like: the tools for clearing out backgrounds for sharper edges, saving your work without having to delete all previous versions, furniture and accessories having more than one direction and less background and above all, displaying a clean, sharp final output...right now it has a haze or blurriness to the overall board which is so distracting and unattractive. One last thing, I wish we could add animation slogans and figures, color blocking, a typing feature and a way to add on from furniture stores we are familiar with. Those are my points and I hope they will be incorporated in the future! Then it would really be a 5star app!!!
Review by czechokie
If you love designing and enjoy free reign in the process, then you will find freedom and satisfaction in this app. No more forced voting, no high-priced in- app furniture to buy, all free! If you want to add your own decor, which is not mandatory, then the inventory spots are very reasonably priced. Editing tools are available to further enhance images. Results are endless when one masters the editing tool. The best thing about this app are the fellow designers who make up a community of encouragers. The app is further supported by the creators’ involvement in design challenges, helpful blogs, and rewarding outstanding designs. By far, the best decorating app available. This is also a great tool for those who suffer anxiety, depression, and other mental health issues.
Review by BATBeast
If you love to design rooms in your home this is the app for you! What I find really cool once you’re done decorating your room you can actually find out exactly how much money it will cost you to buy each product and you can actually purchase them from here as well how cool is that! I don’t even let you take a picture in your house of the room you want to decorate and then you can go for it so it’s not only an app for people who like to interior decorate. It’s also an app for people who want to decorate their own home! And the best thing of all is that it’s completely free completely free!There are absolutely no hidden fees!!!
Review by AllNicknamesTakenOnBadReviews
UPDATE! DecorMatters has made some vast improvements since my initial review and they continue to do so! I am officially addicted! You can now easily communicate with other users! There seem to be more quality items available for use! If you love design you have to check it out! I do have more changes on my wish list but I’m very pleased with the ones I’ve seen! Keep up the great work DM! Original review: This is a fun app but they need to make some improvements. A lot of the items cannot be used because they have backgrounds that can’t be edited. On the up side you can import items and edit them. It’s also hard to communicate with other users directly. The contests are repeatedly won by the same users over and over. Not nearly as user-friendly as Urstyle or trendMe and other design apps out there. I truly miss my Polyvore 😥 Also restricted to Apple users only. That being said, this is not a bad review, it is meant to be helpful to the admins to use for future improvements. The admin seems very receptive to their users and it is still a pretty fun app! I hope to revise this to a 4 or 5 star review in the future!
Review by paulapbee
I like DecorMatters. It’s a fun app. I was a Neybers user before they shut down the app, and this app has been a good sub. However, I wish there were a few little tweaks that could be made. First off, a positive is that they have a big inventory of design items and fun challenges. Cons: I would give it five stars if they could make a cutting tool to crop. The cropping tool they use is like a painting tool and distorts it in the design so some of the inventory is unusable. Also i noticed that when i save a design that the inventory is stacked on top of each other and the design is not saved how I designed it. That is extremely annoying. So if those couple of things can be fixed, I’d be a happy camper. Thanks for the fun though DM 👍🏽
Review by Why I need a nick name?
I have a relatively small place (San Francisco, you know),so it’s good to know what will look nice but also fit in before I really get into it and rush to buy it. This app helps me to know what I can do with my little lovely space so I Appreciate A Lot! More importantly, it gives me kinds of views of how my place can be like. I don’t have time just to browse around fashion magazines or spend hours online to learn how to make a place not only functional but also amazing. Luckily I have Decor. Now I can play with it try out different opportunities and avoid the risk of buying the wrong thing. Thank you, Decor, mu life is better now because of you.
Review by yaydecor
This is by far the best app/game in existence for anyone who likes decor, furniture, and being creative. The competitive vein in designing for specific challenges keeps the site energetic. It would be better if designers could NOT win by using a screenshot and adding a few accessories, as opposed to taking the time to be creative. Even though there is this one hiccup with designers crazy about winning, I still give it a 5 star rating because of the huge inventory, fun challenges, and the built in ability to interact with other designers. I have made some great friendships though this game.
Review by PMGDesign
I am enjoying a lot about this app. Wish there was a way to change background template with edit button. (Say wall color with a click of a button.) also would like to put in my own walls, windows and flooring from scratch. Especially with actual measures from a project. I’ve just started but that’s something I’m not finding ready to go and easy. Also wish there was a way to adjust area rug sizes and angles better. Where is there wallpaper.... I have yet to find that. I’m only using the free app options thus far so maybe that’s in a paid level but without knowing what’s exactly included in paid options I’m unwilling to try.
Review by AshleyOlivares
It needs work. A lot of the options when looking to put something in your design of its white or glass a majority of the time has giant holes in it and you cant use it or the product doesn't show up at all. I also wish they had an easier way to rotate things because if its small all you do is end up resizing the thing over and over and over again. And maybe a hidden list of whats in your design so you can go through it and click it so you can move it (because if you have layers in your design its very hard to move small items/things in the back or even get to them without having to move everything around it).
Review by meek84meek
I ABSOLUTELY LOOOOOVE this app! I can design to my hearts desire without worry about coins or points to use! However, I really hope the search tool would find the items I type in. For instance, if I type in “puppy” nothing puppy shows up instead it’s everything else but an animal :( or some items are blank no matter if I’m on WiFi or not. Kinda frustrating when you have a idea but can’t put it together because you can’t find it. But I’ve learned to think of other words like pet or dog or fluffy to find it. Other than that, I’ll continue to use this app to expand my creativity. Thank you so much for this!! 🤗
Review by hobiandhiscrew
I am an interior designer that is in love with all sorts of home decor and furniture. You name it, rustic, eclectic, industrial, traditional, modern, and so much more! I used to have Home Design, where you had to pay ridiculous amounts for one piece of decor or furniture, well, no, I’m not happy with that. So I deleted it and just stopped looking for another app. Then I found DecorMatters!! I honestly have found the Golden App when it comes to decor games! It’s stress-free and there’s nothing to pay for, it’s all free, and literally the only thing to compete for is the contests, which are your choice, do it or don’t. Thank you, DecorMatters.
Review by nad.io
I am so grateful to have found this app. The graphics are better than alternatives I have tried in the past and I love the social aspect of this app especially because everyone is so kind and supportive of each others designs! The only issue I have is that some of the furniture items have a false light gray blotch shadow underneath of the item and other (mostly white items) are broken when added to the template. Besides these minor issues I am so happy with this app and recommend it to anyone who loves interiors and furniture placement in a space🌞❤️
Review by leanvYX
Bring out the creative YOU and redesign a room or a whole house. Upload your own space to design with all the latest colors, furnishings and accessories. Or use a DecorMatters template to bring out your true design sense. Articles and design tips offer great ideas and advice. Follow your favorite designers and maybe your design will be featured! There isn't a more creative and versatile app out there..truly awesome!!! And, unlike some of the reviewers, who obviously don't get it...you have to be at least a little creative, not all Apps can spoon feed you!
Review by ameythstgirl
This app almost made it to five stars, except for one problem. I love to decorate rooms with furniture and other unique pieces like art and plants. But for heaven’s sake, please make an option for me to disable the live chat. The questions your team asks me are annoying. I’ve gotten “Is there any reason you don’t want to publish your designs?” I still share my designs with my close friends on other websites, like social media. I just choose to keep my designs in the app private for right now. What I do in the app should be my business and no one else’s. This is the only issue so far.
Review by Time. Bomb
This APP is what I’ve been waiting for quite awhile! It is fun, challenging and never ending stimulating. The ability to interact with other players, on their designs is part of what separates this APP from others like .... wait there are no other APPs like this .... lol. You will not only have other players helping you with questions but the “help page” where you email your question, has the nicest real live people answering you and not some copy and paste answer. Seriously I nothing as of yet I don’t love!! This is an APP that will never leave you bored!
Review by AidenPaycO
I downloaded this app when I started working on ideas for redecorating my bedroom. I really can’t say enough about how helpful it has been! I can try out different color schemes and furniture arrangements. I found it quite intuitive to use and when I couldn’t figure out how to do something the instructions were easy to find and use. Perhaps best of all, working with this app is FUN! I actually let my 6 and 8 year old grandsons try it and I was blown away by how quickly they took to it!
Review by Minion All
This app is definitely my first choice of house decoration, and come on, who can say no to the coolest AR technology! It has updated home design inspirations feature, and the styles are just so trendy. I love chatting with their team when using the app, it's like I'm literally hiring a whole designer team to help me get through the entire decorating process. What's even better is that the app directs me to the local furniture stores with google map according to the products I like, it's just so sweet and efficient!
Review by @ParisNouvelle
First things first, I do love this app very much! What I dislike is that it’s so difficult for anyone to win challenges... it’s always the same people winning over & over & over again based on POPULARITY. I feel like that’s so unfair! They’re should be a way for everyone to have a chance at winning besides/likes & popularity. The next thing I dislike about the app is that most of the popular people on here add endless amounts of blank templates back to back to back & we get notifications for it every single time if we are following them. I don’t think we should get notifications every time someone we follow posts something; it gets super annoying after a while, especially if it’s JUST a black template.
Review by TomCarchMM
This is a really good app the good things are that they are really up to date with the newest room trends and they usually have new stuff very often also it’s nice to have a variety of different rooms to design and to see how you could Manet do your own house in reality. it was an amazing app. I nearly forgot you can also post it with your game account and see what other players think of it that can comment and even like. This is a great game and I really recommend it
Review by WurineJustm
Recently I got a new apartment and need to buy a lot of furnitures. But I do not know where to buy, which style would be best fit for me. Inadvertently I saw this application in the Apple store. There are a lot of projects created by interior designer and full information of the furniture can also be found on the page. This app gave me a great inspiration, and I think I know what I really need to buy now. The app is very easy to use and I recommend it.
Review by Annie esq
Love this design app. No constraints on what you can do - YES no “requirements” - and it’s FREE. Unlike Home Design or DMR - which will cost you big. You can be as creative as you want and conjure up all kinds of beautiful designs. Huge catalog of great decor items and you can import your own too. DM offers challenges if you like those but you can freestyle too. Easy to learn the basics. I suggest you use with Magic Erase app to make transparent pngs. Highly recommend this app if you love design.
Review by likestoknit55
I love this app, first. There are quite a few items to choose to decorate with. The challenges I like, they really get you thinking about space, color, etc. Second, I agree with some of the other reviewers that some more perspectives of furniture to fit the room templates might be a good idea, or a way to adjust them to fit the perspective of the room (I’m not sure if that is possible here). The white objects are sometimes lacking white space because of the selection, which kind of ruins the effect. I wouldn’t mind more challenges, those are fun. And more effects (like light, shadow). I think other ways of upping your crown level than just winning challenges would be great, like commenting on designs, liking designs, to raise that. Thank you for this app, it’s fun.
Review by ZMountaiT5
To be honest I love the fact that it’s free and you don’t have to purchase anything in game to get a better experience. It’s such an easy app to use and it’s actually really fun. I’ve always had a love of interior designing but never really got to move forward with that career, this really can help if you’re planning on changing your house up too! I haven’t had any issues with it YET and I don’t plan on having any issues soon. Ps- Have a nice day!
Review by essgeevee
I consider myself to be an intelligent person, not because I am a braggart but because many people have told me as much. I am pretty tech savvy and am completely self-taught. Some even come to me for tech support. I noted all this babble to say that I absolutely could not figure this app out. How to add a rug to a room, how to add ANYTHING to a room. I was so excited to try this app because it appeared to be a legitimate free app and it looked like I could while away the hours while my hubs was at work in the evenings. Sadly, I will have to keep playing the other app until I can find something more user friendly. Not sure what I am missing with all the five star ratings. Like I said, I’m not stupid.
Review by OkobethAnnanski
I really like this app to help me take what’s in my brain and get it out on something constructive! I was able to plan my living room in my new house and it ended up looking very similar to what I had designed. I also love that you can shop the items that you put in your room-that’s really fun. One recommendation is having more room options available. There weren’t a lot of rooms that looked like the room in my house I was trying to design.
Review by ChaellCarrrbonneau
I’ve recently been playing design games and some are expensive having to pay out for furniture. You can design away in this game and you don’t have to pay out for a thing. You also get to enter competitions, no need to spend money at all, although there is a section where you can join up to pay out for extra designs “in my decor” but it’s not necessary. I loving it already!!!
Review by chklooyexc
I'm beyond hooked and have been for over a year now! The choices and elements to use when designing your perfect dream space are nearly endless!! The interface is easy to understand, the graphics awesome, and the fact that you can choose from hundreds of furniture options just add to the fun! No two spaces are alike, and the community of other users is very friendly, encouraging and fun! Download today and create the spaces of your dreams!
Review by zoetheevbk
It cost you no money, and has great features, like customizing your OWN rooms, you can take a picture and put things in it, try it out. Now other design games can cost you a lot of money, but this one is 100% completely free! It’s great. It has amazing rooms to choose from and categorizes the decorations, or you could just search them. (Dining room,Tables, chairs, art/decor etc.) Its a very simple but fun amazing game. I recommend 11/10
Review by dinorahvera
This app deserves 5 stars. Not only did I find a game that I like, I feel like I’m not wasting my time because at the same time I’m playing I’m getting ideas on how to arrange/decorate my new room. It has a variety of furniture & decor to choose from. The possibilities are endless. Only thing I’d ask is for more options on the backgrounds. For example different color walls on the bedrooms & different scenery’s too. Other than that it’s perfect 👍🏼
Review by justadarling
This is the perfect outlet if you’re trying to learn the basics of interior design. It helps the creative process of making mood boards and discovering what styles best suit you, as well as learning how to scale pieces to fit a room. A great perk is that almost everything you use to decorate a room in-app are available for purchase if you find a piece you love. It’s great for inspiration, learning and passing time. I’ve been waiting for an app like this! I love it.
Review by KrioHelizman
I absolutely love this app I have only had it for a couple weeks but already done like 6 designs! Great for designing on a set background that the app makes but not only can you do that you cam also design in your own space by simply taking a picture of where you want to design then adding the furniture you can also take a picture of your own furniture and place it on you design! AMAZING APP∞⋆REALLY HAPPY WITH THE TURN OUTS OF MY DESIGN!
Review by Pugs15
This app is the most useful app for presenting houses and/or if you want to set up how you want your house to look. I also like this app because it helps improve your organization skills. It's almost like Instagram because you can chat with people it isn't like Instagram because you can't chat privately and you can show designs instead of posting pictures of yourself.
Review by IuveniGalvin
This app is the best! No matter what you're looking for they have it. You can use the template and items to create your own designs. You can browse designs & ideas for anything you want to do to your house or landscaping. They have links to buy everything under the sun. I swear if you don't know exactly you're looking for or need, DecorMatters will help you find it. Love it!!
Review by Stefa Zapata
I love decorating, and was in the search for the best app for that.. but always found apps that required me to pay, play other games, have lives or some other weird thing i didnt want to do! Until I came across this app and it is perfect! I get to just decorate spaces and thats all i wanted to do. There’s templates or you can even use your OWN houseee! Love that feature too.
Review by leanettelin
Whoever developed this design home game is a genius. It gives you plenty of ideas of renovating your places without using physical fixtures. There is numerous brand furniture(Ikea, create&barrel, west elm, livingspace...)that you can pick from their app and apply to it. You can have a better image of how to implement your houses instead of paying an interior designer to design. I will definitely recommend this app.
Review by LleyHarrrenas
I’m astounded at the quality & excellence in designs...this is the most exciting app I have ever had the pleasure of using!!!I’ve sent other designers that are using different gaming apps messages to come & try ‘DECOR MATTERS’ as this is really next level decorating & something that anyone of any age can really sink their teeth into & be as creative as their imagination will flow... Thank you for making designing so simple!
Review by Dr. John Harrington
I have rated apps from time to time, but I never write a review, but this app is top notch. It’s all about decorating and design, not annoying games to earn coins or credits to proceed, and it’s completely free!!! No in app purchases like some designing apps. It’s pure enjoyment!! The decorating community is supportive and encouraging and so very helpful!!! Highly recommend this app... it’s also relaxing and informative!!
Review by 土拨鼠RR
I am the type of person that do not have much artistic sense. When it comes to decorating or remodeling, I always have a hard time to decide and picture them on my head. I am glad that I have found this app on google which can solved my issues. For those of you that have the same phobia as me, I believe you will find most of your answers here.
Review by mom-esart
1. Items offered for design were cleaner and easier to manipulate. I cut stock for digital art for a “living,” so I know what it takes to make a decent png. Items on here tend to be extremely over or extremely under cut. The tools for editing are difficult to navigate. In addition, tools such as changing the perspective are remedial, at best. 2. Many items never show up in search selections. I get blank boxes staring back at me no matter how long I wait. 3. Search function is very limited and somewhat confusing. Many items catalogued incorrectly. 4. More frequent contests would be great! I really think this could be one of the best decorating apps available if developers would consider spending a little more time organizing items, implementing useful tools, and employing good stock artists.
Review by CorndogsAu
Not just for remodeling, super creative fun. Connect and view other designs...see the latest furnishings, trends, colors and accessories. Learn how to turn any space into a living space with unlimited possibilities and best of all...complete details and purchasing info on your favorite pieces so you can truly make your ideas come to life! Use the provided spaces for designing or upload your own.
Review by Amazing voice and music!!!!!!!
This last change has it so you are limited to 3 of your own items, then you pay to have more. My complaint is that changes should make a app better not worse. Also most of the winning designs are won by popular vote, so you better have lots of friends! I use to love this app, but now am so disappointed!
Review by Reluctang0
Great app but defiantly spend your time on this app it's not one of those apps wear u drag a fake couch back and forth, this one of these kind apps if u we're designing a house or if u r in to designing rooms and furniture then is a great app for u. The quality is great they give u real furniture that u could go buy if you liked your design or if u like the furniture, so definitely check this app out it is 100% perfect!
Review by MusieDorrio
So easy to use and very professional in its design and outstanding in its realistic outcome that even your clients will be taken aback by the end product you present to them. Can only give 5 stars - should make it 10 out of 10 stars though even then you’d get 10! Exceptional quality and very easy to use and astounding in the final outcome! Keep up the great work!
