Total 3D Home Design Deluxe has 3D viewing and tools so you can design a true-to-life kitchen on your PC, and it has a virtual walkthrough feature that enables you to preview your virtual kitchen from multiple angles. With this 3D kitchen design planner, you can create a beautiful design.
It has over 1,000 sample professional floor plans, so that you do not have to create a design from scratch. You can modify the templates to fit your individual needs, and the 3D drag-and-drop tools let you import items such as appliances from the object library.
This kitchen design program has a precise dimension feature that lets you measure your virtual cabinets, sinks and appliances so that you can make realistic plans. This is especially useful if you want to get estimates on prices for materials ahead of time, and the software can track the type and quantity of supplies you need and generate a cost estimate.
The object library is relatively small at 1,000 objects, less than most kitchen planners. However, there are almost 50 cabinet combinations, and if you can’t find what you want, you can import and insert your own digital images.
This software is missing several important construction-planning features for a full kitchen remodel. You cannot plan your HVAC, plumbing or electrical wiring, so you will have to use what already exists or hire a contractor to do the work for you. Since the software does not allow you to save your plans in a PDF file format, you will have to install a print driver first, which adds more work for you. PDF files are ideal for sending to contractors for bids and price quotes because they can’t be altered.
Since this product does not offer a free trial, you can’t test it out before you buy it. However, the company does have a toll-free telephone number on the website, or you can make contact through the email link on the website. Video tutorials are available with detailed instructions and design tips.
The Total 3D Home Design Deluxe is an interior design program that does not have a large object library or construction tools for planning what goes behind your walls. It does offer a wide selection of 3D tools, so you can get an accurate rendering of what your kitchen will look like once complete.
