If you’re looking for some Design My Room tips and cheats to help you get more positive votes for your design and get enough money and diamonds to afford all the best items and decorations in the game, you’re at the right place! Because today we’re helping you become a solid in-game designer.
Design My Room is the latest in a series of games that helps you become a virtual designer and does a great job offering high quality visuals and a really active community. The game is fun to play and the more active you are, the more rewarding it gets.
But you can still get better – for that, check out our Design My Room cheats and tips below and have fun becoming a world renowned designer!
Complete the daily missions
If you need more money and diamonds fast, the easiest way to get them even if you’re not scoring the big points in the design challenges is by completing the daily challenges.
You have to complete them all each day or get as close as possible in order to unlock the treasure chests and grab the rewards. The most difficult one – especially when you’re just starting up – is the one requiring you to use 65 items in your designs, but completing that every other day is still better than nothing.
Eventually, you will have enough items unlocked through various means and it won’t be as difficult to complete that mission daily.
No need to use all possible items in a design
I’ve seen many designs with very poor ratings just because those who created them decided to fill up all spots available. This is usually a mistake and even more so when you don’t have that perfect item to fit the design.
Instead of using something that upsets the balance – or using something just to add an extra item to a room – it’s better not to use anything at all. In most designs I usually leave at least two spots not filled with items and I still manage to score at least A- on them!
Unlock the story with badges
As you play the game, you unlock badges, which can be used to unlock new episodes in the game’s main story. This is done through the main menu and you can skip the stories entirely as they are text and image only and you don’t get to play through them.
But you should unlock them nevertheless because once you reach a certain number of unlocked episodes, you are rewarded with a gift holding extremely useful goodies for your career as a virtual designer.
So, if you are not really interested in following the actual story and the adventures of the main character, you can simply hoard badges until you have enough to unlock a gift, then use them one after another, skipping the actual story. Your choice!
Do the Special challenges first
Every day, there are a few special design challenges that will reward you with better rewards than the regular ones. There’s even the chance to see, if you scroll down the available challenges, which special ones will follow and then.
Make sure that you take part in as many special challenges as possible, because the rewards there are great and much better than those in the regular ones.
Vote other designs and learn from them
First of all, don’t forget to vote for as many designs as possible. It’s the community and the votes of fellow players that make or break a game like Design My Room, so make sure to do your part here. And don’t hesitate to be forgiving when it comes to ratings and offer more likes than dislikes.
You also have a lot to learn from this: look at the designs you’re voting for, check out items used, the colors and how everything is placed in the room. Then look at the ratings that particular room design got and learn from this: if the ratings are overwhelmingly positive, you should try and replicate such designs. If they are mostly negative, make sure not to repeat the mistakes the designer did.
Be selective when it comes to challenges
You will do better or worse in a challenge depending on what items you have on hand. Each room type goes better with a particular type of items, while some of the items are only available for particular rooms.
Try to focus and specialize early on in order to increase your chances of getting the high ratings. Design My Room is a waiting game and you need to be patient: you will have, sooner rather than later, enough items to do well in multiple categories, but initially you should focus on just a couple.
Remember that usually the rarer, more expensive items are getting better ratings in the game (for the right reason, since they’re usually better looking) and you won’t be able to get them all as soon as you start playing!
