There are a lot of home designer software applications in the market that you can purchase with varying prices. But for a user who is not professional in this area, the options look very complicated. The added downside is that the majority of them are available for the Windows operating system, but Linux users are not alone. They have Sweet Home 3D.
Before analyzing the software, I have to tell you that I have used the software to the maximum degree before I was married to design our new home. To do that, I have purchased an ultrasonic distance measurer with a laser pointer to take measurements. (I have purchased it for a price of about USD 20 in my country and Amazon has a similar gadget at a similar price. I strongly recommend purchasing one, because it greatly reduces the time, and the tiredness, you will experience.) Then, I recorded every measurement that I took and finally had my plan, which I carried with me everywhere.
Sweet Home 3D
To download Sweet Home 3D, go to its website, click Download and select the file that is appropriate for your Linux installation (32-bit or 64-bit). Once downloaded, open the file by double clicking it and extract the contents to a convenient location, such as /home/user_name/Downloads/SweetHome. After the installation, just run the SweetHome3D executable under the SweetHome directory. The program comes as a “complete installation package”, which means that you do not need to think about the dependencies; everything the program needs to run is in the downloaded file. The total download is about 45 Megabytes.
