We found the most convincing reviews for the Better Homes and Gardens Interior Designer software at Amazon.com and Epinions from users who own the software.
For people who want to get an idea of what a remodeled kitchen or a new bathroom might look like, Better Homes and Gardens Interior Designer software is a good choice. This program comes with a library of over 4,000 items for designing your home, along with cost estimators for interior spaces and 30 how-to videos, plus 500 sample home plans. This software is roughly similar to the interior portion of Better Homes and Gardens Home Designer (*est. $60), but has advanced interior dimension tools found only in this company's two most expensive products. Reviewers say these tools make the software easy to use, and that they can easily move walls and create accurate home drawings. The only consistent criticism we could find in reviews is that the decorating options, such as furniture and appliances, are limited.
Over 20 contributors at Amazon.com give the Better Homes and Gardens Interior Designer software good marks. They say that the software is easy to use, and that there are many colors to choose from for walls and floors. The only downside is that decorating options are limited, owners say. One owner complained that "you will not be able to duplicate a space that you see in the design magazines."
