Now that we have chosen a floorplan and have a faint idea of what our
house should look like it’s time to think about the design.
1. Shapes and Walls
Try to be creative when it comes to shape your
building. Avoid squared houses - you should always
create some little corners e.g. for a Laundry
corner to make it look more realistic.
HERE is a list of rooms that will give you an idea
of what your corner could constist of.
The size of your rooms depends on what kind of
house you want to build. Incase you are not
building a villa you should not make the rooms too
big. It looks more realisitic with smaller rooms
filled with interior.
The same thought applies to the height of walls. A
villa needs huge walls with splendid design while
midsize households usually go with the medium or
small wall height.
Tip: If you want your house entrance to have
stairs - build a foundation!
1. Picking a colour
Finding a fitting colour for your walls mostly
depend on the style of your house. Same goes
for textures. A modern house usually doesn’t
have a wood paneling. Below you can see an
example of what your house could look like.

beginnings that is supposed to become a little,
cosy, rustic home.
- single colours walls in bright colours
- Brick walls or imposing paneling with stucco
- Wood sidings with cheesy extra decoration
3. Windows and Roofs
While placing windows you should never mix up
styles of windows that are too different. Try
to maintain the same colour and look
throughout the entire house.
Also notice that you are able to place
windows in a higher or lower position into
Depending on the height of your walls, choose
the correct height of your windows. Big, tall
wall levels with tiny windows will look
Also, play around with the roofs. Add
multiple shapes of roofs to your house and
change its height and width to e.g. build
Keep the style of your house in mind. A cosy
little rustic home without a pointed roof -
but in the shape of a bungalow might seem a
bit weird. Yet - if it is a modern wood hut -
a bungalow shaped roof looks totally fine.
- flat/bungalow roofs and bright/huge windows
- Huge roofs with lots of different shapes, big windows
- pointed roofs, normal sized windows in rustic style
4. Additional Design
