Redecor Game Cheat Sheet: Tips & Tricks


Today we will take a look at everything you need to know about Redecor, as well as some tips and tricks to help you decorate spaces and win more challenges. Of course, since it’s a game that’s all about decorating, you will need to put your imagination to work as well!

Since imagination is not all you need for a successful design, we’ve prepared a few decorating tips that are definitely going to make your designs beloved by everybody. So without further ado, let’s take a look at the Redecor tips and tricks we’ve got up our sleeves!

Always try to create sleek designs

Creating a colorful design in any space can be fun, but keep in mind that it’s not all about what is fun for you, but rather what sells. You want your designs to rate high when they’re up for voting, so make sure that you create something that catches the eye, but doesn’t overstimulate it.

You want a pop of color—but not too much. You want mixed elements, but not a cocktail of wood, mixed metals, and marble. Try to create something unique, but with a pleasant look. Players usually vote for the designs that look sleek and have a touch of creativity, so don’t go too minimal, nor too complex. Aim for a healthy middle ground.

We prefer to go for something rather eclectic minimal and rate 4.7+, but that can’t always be the case. So, try to find your style and play around with the colors and textures.

Color plays an important role in every design

When designing any space, you want neutral colors to be the predominant ones, and then add a few elements of a different color as accent pieces. This will draw the eye towards the elements you want highlighted, and it will give your designs a professional feel.

Make sure you don’t combine colors that are complete opposites in the color spectrum, because these don’t always bode well with the voters. You can, of course, go for opposite colors, but that’s quite difficult to pull off. It’s best to stick to just 3-4 colors that are within the same range (let’s say pastels—you go for baby blue, powder pink, white, and grey, and you get a nice color scheme).

Try to add accent elements in your designs

Accent elements play an important role in décor, as they draw the eye towards the elements that you want highlighted. For example, you are designing a living room—you want to place a beautiful sofa, and next to it, you want to add some interesting lamps as well as other matching decors that will draw the player’s attention towards them.

Make sure you try to emphasize one element in each design, otherwise it might look dull.

Vote every day for extra bucks!

If you want extra money, make sure you vote every single day. The votes actually matter, and having a cool design will really pay off. You can vote several times a day, so if you have some spare time and want to make some money, try to do this as much as possible.

Don’t leave your designs bland

Make sure that you add décor elements whenever you have a chance. They will make a world of difference, and even if they cost some money, they might end up winning you a challenge! So, make sure that you always add something anywhere that you can.

As we mentioned above, try to follow some simple design strategies, and you’ll end up winning the challenges like a real designer!

Invest in the Season Pass

If you want to spend some money in the game, but don’t want to spend too much, then the Season Pass is definitely the way to go. You will receive exclusive rewards, and it’s definitely going to pay off. We prefer to get this instead of buying premium currency or specific items. If you have just a few bucks to spend and want to get the most out of them, the pass is a great deal.

If you plan on getting the pass, don’t get it at the end of the month—it is best bought at the start of the month, since each season lasts for that long.

Practice makes perfect

Just like with many other things, in Redecor you will learn what sells and what doesn’t. And when we say what sells, we really mean what designs rate as 5*. You will get an idea of what people like only by playing the game more, so make sure you take part in every single challenge you can, because it’s going to pay off.

Redecor Game Cheat Sheet: Tips & Tricks


  1. I have found that GENERALLY a color scheme using Browns, Blacks or Blues (BBBs) will get higher scores than Purples, Pinks or Pistachios (PPPs). ( Pistachio was the only word I could think of for green which began with a P.) White and Gray are neutral colors. I avoid using orange, red and yellow as my primary color, and use as little as possible of those 3 colors in my designs.

  2. I agree. Avoid bright bold colours especially red, purple, hot pink, orange and yellow, bright blue and green. Muted shades of these colours sometimes can be included in a design e.g. burgundy, lilac, pastel pink, burnt orange and mustard, but only in very small amounts e.g. vases or cushions etc. Also try to avoid matte painted items except black, white and possibly cream or grey – they rarely look good in Redecor. If white is too stark in a design tone it down to light grey or cream. Also try things you wouldn’t think of using in surfaces to see what they look like. I discovered that Tuscany Hickory a dark brown wood, passed for a copper shade on light fittings, meaning I didnt have to pay for expensive copper. Usually I stick to wood such as balsa, ash, milky pine, natural white or silver birch. One rule I try to stick to is if I use a pattern somewhere in the design the rest of the design is largely plain shades. You might use a patterned wallpaper on the walls, a patterned upholstery fabric on a couch or chair or a patterned duvet cover on a bed – but only one of these in any one design otherwise it can become overwhelming. Another tip that Redecor itself gives you is try to stick to a colour scheme of 3 where possible. Usually 2 base colours and 1 accent colour. These can be taken from a patterned fabric or artwork or go online and look up some ideas. Traditional schemes that just about always work are navy, white and dark brown for example or white and beige with an accent of navy or blue. Usually in my experience blue trumps most other colours – so when in doubt go blue in various shades. Usually a scheme with a base of white, cream, grey or beige works well. Save the dramatic colors e.g. black and gold, metallic shades and marble for public spaces which come up from time to time, not someone’s living room. And dont forget white. White walls are clean and fresh and bring a brightness and lightness to a room. A white couch with colourful cushions can be very eye catching and classy. Also, familiarize yourself with current decorating trends like scandi and modern etc as this can be helpful/useful. I think it has already been mentioned but adding a unique or expensive (gold) item which you may have won in a challenge or bought, can sometimes be all it takes to make your design stand out. It might be a cushion, throw or upholstery fabric. Something that people haven’t seen before and catches their eye. Likewise dont forget the classic schemes like white and balsa wood with a touch of black. These schemes though simplistic can look classy and stylish. Also remember texture – a plain scheme can be bought to life with different textures even when there isn’t much colour such as a brick wall, wooden floorboards, finger panelling etc. NEVER clash colours! Bold and gutsy though this may be it rarely goes down well with voters. Having said all that winning is sometimes random and not always logical so dont try to read too much into it. There are 5-6 challenges and 1 duel a day and if you complete each challenge twice you will have 10 chances a day to win. I find I usually win 1 in 6 challenges, so at least 1 a day and I win most duels as you can see before you start what you are up against and can design accordingly. The only thing with duels is you only win gold and cash and not items or unlocks. Finally dont forget lighting. Redecor’s developers design the rooms in 3D and then take photos at various angles to see where the light falls. You may notice this when designing that white might look grey or black shiny because of where the light falls so try different things and try to take it into account. It can be subtle but makes a difference. Personally I like my rooms to be light so rarely design dark rooms and they dont seem to rate as highly with voters but occasionally a dramatic black wallpaper I’d fun to use for a change from all the beige!

    • Thanks for the information it helps alot I do have one question though when your in the League and you win how do you receive your points? I have one twice now and thought I got alot of points or cash but then went to the next league and had no cash. Are you suppose to get cash when you win?

  3. Even though I’ve played Redecor game for a year now ; I’ve learned so much here and especially in the comments
    Well done guys
    Happy designs

  4. The duel challenge I don’t get it, I thought it was supposed to be your own color scheme and not copy the desighner colors…When I done my own I all ways didn’t win…the other person won because they copied color for color…so it’s not an original design…

      • As others have said, the original design you see are from your opponent, not the game. Duels are my favorite part. I’ve been surprised by the outcome of a few duels. On others, I knew I had it in the bag. On a couple, I knew I was up against a tough designer. I wish you had more than one a day. They are fun and you get quicker results than with the challenges — plus, you can see the votes in real time.

  5. Some of the design is not all that good. Yet they win. I don’t know how some of these people are voting. If they are going on who is spinning the most money. They need to stop this game.

    • Well, taste is individually different. Bear in mind that many players are NOT professionals, even children and just pick what they like. Also, voting is done to get money, so in general you can’t expect very serious considerations, nor paying attention to details. It’s the first impression that counts…

      • Agree. I also played with my kids to pick which they liked best when I had to get through 100%. My 5 year old was a rapid picker (though he often picked what the crowd was picking and picked what I would have). Still, I am surprised by some wins. Others seem predictable. I think in some cases, a design’s score may just be who you are up against. A particular design may rate higher or lower when it is grouped with another set of designs.

  6. I think yall are wanting an all dark country. Everything that is dark and bleek win. The world needs color. I see so many that decorate with the sinister colors win more often. This world needs colors. NOT DARKNESS!!!

  7. I also see people winning that doesn’t even follow what the customer wants. Like for instance if someone puts that there favorite color is blue and they want blue in the color scheme they don’t even use that color, but wins.

    • That happened to me as well, quite a lot. Sadly, there is not much we can do, other than keep trying to create something stunning even if it doesn’t exactly follow the customer’s guidelines…

    • YES! When I go for what is ask for by the client I generally lose. I think those who don’t at least try to do as requested need not get as many points for their design. I just decorated how I like it, regardless of the request

      • Yeah. I’ve started to ignore the requests because it definitely doesn’t matter as far as winning goes.

        Another thing to consider, though, is that you get points by using season pass items etc. The current season pass items are not crowd friendly. I’m basically just designing some pretty crazy stuff knowing they will lose to get the season pass and/or experience points in some cases.

    • I agree! The voting area then just says pick the best design and never mentions the clients color request. It should say, pick the best design that incorporated yellow (or whatever color the client wanted). That really bugs me too.

      • I just started. I’m super annoyed by this. I went out of my way, and paid extra, for items the client wanted. Zero points for that. The person that won had none of the colors indicated

  8. It is frustrating to choose a pattern swatch only to have it look different and most times, cheaper when used in the design. It is also disappointing how few choices they let us choose from. I’m getting burned out because if I only have a few, mostly ugly swatches, I can’t create to my envisioned final room.

    • Agree. I see a nice design swatch and it looks completely different. Then it doesn’t match your design and you are forced to use something that may not be what you want…. Or have to spend money to open more choices…. But still not the choices you want. A little frustrating.

  9. Why are all my metals black?

    I thought it was because I was a low level but I saw someone at level 2 with metal in their designs. How?

    Where are all their rules? The Facebook sites just want to see designs.

    This is FRUSTRATING!!

  10. Why are all my metals black?

    I thought it was because I was a low level but I saw someone at level 2 with metal in their designs. How?

    Where are all their rules? The Facebook sites just want to see designs.

    This is FRUSTRATING!!

  11. I don’t get how the challenges work? I always can se my opponents design before I start, but that gives my opponent a disadvantage? Or do they reuse peoples designes and everybody always can se what they will compete against?

  12. I just started Redecor. How do you know your rank during voting? Is it the number next to your name or is that how many votes you have received?

    There not any explanation on how that’s supposed to work.

  13. I never win this game. The choices are so few and the nice ones needs a lot of token and gold. Cash choices are not ad good so you end up buying the ugly ones just because there’s no choice. It’s disappointing

  14. Hello I love this game I have noticed that at 8:00 p.m. Eastern standard Time if I vote in the sets of five or the sets of 10 I get either $75 cash or for sets of 10 $150 cash at 8:00 p.m. on the sets of five I get $375 cash and for the sets of 10 $750 cash is there any other times of the day that it increases?

  15. Hi fellow decorators. I just designed a beach bar twice . One design I took a lot of time doing. I picked neutrals with some blue to relate to the background of the ocean and sky.
    The second I went all out there and did bright pink and browns and just used colors I thought were pretty. Well guess how I scored. My wild design came in 10th , and my neutrals with a pop of blue came in FIRST. Just goes to show the suggestions here really matter. Try it yourself. It fun. Happy Designing.

  16. This is my absolute favorite game to play hands down. I did notice that even that one of the wallpapers I didn’t quite like was actually a big hit and one I did well it didn’t get such good feedback with the votes. So I had to realize what was popular with the voters and I won with that wallpaper several times 1st place. Designers actually design for others most the time. Remember it’s not always what you like if you want to win. But this is a game in the end and it’s meant to be fun so we should also have a little fun with it sometimes. Unless your the type that has to win always then you may want to please others instead of yourself more and have as much fun as you can!
    I really do love this game tho. AND… I just realized that I don’t have to actually buy the plants!!!! I’m so happy! I have been wasting so much money on that. Now I can save it for my designs! They were lacking due to me not knowing I didn’t have to buy the plants.
    I wish I could unlock all the choices that would be awesome!!! If I ever become rich I’m totally doing that. It will probly be one of the first things I would do I love this game that much!!!

  17. Okay so how can I get some deluxe items when I click on them they are not available to me they are not locked I’m just not able to get them it’s all deluxe items where can I purchase them? Does anybody know? Please help these are beautiful items and I’d love to use them in my designs where do I get them from or how can I become a deluxe designer?
    Also I made it into diamond League and I’m not able to go any further I’ve been in the diamond League now three times how many times do you get to stay in the diamond League before this is all over or you move up into something else I thought the diamond league was the highest? Please help very curious

  18. Hi!. I love redecor! There’s just one thing I don’t get. See, new leagues contest. Every time I start new one with 0 points, there’s already someone with 55 000….how the heck am I supposed to even try to win this….

  19. Hi guys!
    Can someone expierenced in this game explain, how to enter (create?) many design duels?
    Otherwise all I get, is one Duel challenge in 24hours where somebody has made it first.
    However there are many players who participate in many (even around 10) design Duels a day.
    Thank you sooo much! :)

  20. I was trying to figure out how someone had 248,000+ XP in 2 days and noticed the same thing. They had 11 design duels, when I only have the option for 1 a day.
    Any suggestions?

  21. Yes, one of my cactus league opponents just did 15 design duels in a row… and her xp skyrocketed…its an unfair advantage if you don’t know how to get the game to give you unlimited design duels to stay 1st in the Cactus league.

  22. I’d love to know the same, within 8 hours of the cup reset 1 person has 185000 points and 10 duels, as stated here get 1 in 24 hours so how come???? And how come I seem to get so few designs to do. Some of those 1 above me or below have 4 or 5 designs I have never been given to do, something stinks here

      • Actually I think that the players who get more points are getting them by doing a “redesign” of one of their submitted designs. If you click on the submitted (in voting only) design on your personal page, there is a redesign button to click which lets you start over. Then you can submit another version of that original design and earn XP points which give you more points in the league. I try to “redesign” before I vote. I really don’t want to copy anyone’s design or get immediate inspiration. However, when I’m voting, I really do get inspiration and have learned a lot through voting. Of course, we don’t always agree with the outcome and often can’t fathom why the voting results turned out the way they did.
        I have two pet peeves (probably because of my age): someone who copies a duel and only changes a small shade or changes nothing at all; and people who use “Chic Quotes” everywhere. About the latter: I think I have seen (in 9 months of playing) the quote “Good Night” in almost every room and situation possible — even on a patio!
        Yes this game can be expensive and I have wondered why there is no option to buy gold or star coins with cash earned in the game, not just real cash.

  23. From a post I had read in the Facebook group, Redecor is doing beta testing with the dual designs. Some designers were on a zoom call in late October2021 & can create a couple of duals each day. These dual codes are frequently found on Facebook or Instagram. On your live page, scroll down to the bottom to redeem code.
    There is no *magic hour* to get more money when voting. There is just a random algorithm to the amounts. If you need money & have time, voting is a quick way to get money.
    Cactus league winnings in all leagues, are the same prizes. 2 art from the ‘Autumn tones’ currently.

  24. I’m relatively new, a month and a half. I do notice I won more in the beginning. Now I feel frustrated bc it seems like the designs I put more time and care into lose, whereas those I put together quickly do better.

    I’d like a shot at more duels if they help standing. Instinctively, I do not like duels bc I hate knowing I’m competing with one other person, weird I know. How can I start the duel allowing someone to do the challenging for a change?

  25. I feel like you don’t want me to play any longer. I love the game. I have spent hundreds of real dollars playing. Suddenly you have made it so no cash can be earned during peak hours. $75 game cash for voting. It has made the game unplayable for me. All day until dinner and then the value increases.I get you want people to make purchases… I do!!!! But this game change is such a game changer, I quit. Look at my activity!!!! You will see I play and purchase all the time, but you have now ruined the game… I quit. ( i don’t use Facebook anymore, this is the only way I know how to contact you,do not post)

( i don’t use Facebook anymore, this is the only way I know how to contact you,do not post) it’s exhausting to play now… I giveup

  27. I love this game! The voting is real suspect at times, though. It seems the blandest design wins. But, whatever.
    To Bella – at the bottom of the live/in voting screen there’s a link to “vote.”
    To Liz – wow! You’ve been spending lots of money to play. That isn’t necessary. How did the game change that makes it so intolerable for you now? I am still beginner.
    Oh, I do have a question – how many stars does it take to do the “season” design challenge? Is it just one star?
    Good Luck everyone!

  28. Can someone help me post/share onto Facebook when I get a winning design? I just got two 5’s today! When I press the “Share” icon, my phone allows me to click on Instagram, Photos, etc., but I don’t have a Facebook option to share to the Redecor Page like everyone else does. Is it the Redecor app or my phone settings? I can’t figure out why Facebook isn’t an option. Help!

  29. Has anyone else noticed that the app has changed? Larger fonts (which I don’t mind), but trying to play the game is difficult as you can click on a item and nothing happens, or you try to change an item and nothing happens or you click on winnings and you get a vote screen. Also, when you go to the live decors they are all blank – no color! What the heck is going on?

  30. What is the function of the cactus cup? Is it even working? I have completed WAY more than 12 designs and have not been entered in anything. I am relatively new to the game and dont know if I am doing something wrong.

  31. Can anyone tell me why some designers don’t have mandatory elements in their final design.
    Example … I had to pick an accessory ( a plant or a knick knack) or it would not let me post my completed design. Yet another designer did not have that on their final design . Can you get past having to pick one? At times I think it hurts the final design.
