Floorplanner can prove to be a good home design app if you are a architect or interior designer. You can get your design right down to a centimeter. But then you should know what you are doing.

Every item can be resized, rotated, reshaped according to your liking. You can easily share the designs you created with your friends as well. I did find the app a bit buggy though. The app blanked out once or twice. And if you are not familiar with designing homes then you will have a hard time creating one by yourself. You might need help to create a complete drawing. But if you know your way around then, it would not be a problem.
