Download Sweet Home 3D to Make Virtual Floorplan of Your Home

Download of the Day: Sweet Home 3D

Don't tell anyone, but I spend an inordinate amount of time on CasaSugar. I'm obsessed with my home — what goes where, new accessories, new pieces of furniture, new colors — and I am deeply, deeply happy when I can combine my love for making a cozy home and my love for tech. Whether it's hunting for a new HDTV, space heater, or cord solution to hide the ugly part of my electronics, I need the perfect gadgets for my abode. And isn't it great that manufacturers are integrating sleeker designs now, like the Wii, which fits seamlessly into modern interiors?

Therefore, my new obsession is Sweet Home 3D. To see why it is one of my fave downloads,


Sweet Home 3D is a download for Windows, Macs, Solaris, and Linux, and it enables you to put a virtual version of your house together, and rearrange your furniture online! Add in measurements and the pieces you have (or are thinking of getting) to the 2D window, and the window below applies them for a 3D view. Mess with your floor plan without physically doing it and making someone else insane!
