Now we start our seventh routine contest -The T-Shaped Room Contest！！！！
Goodbye 2021, and Hello 2022 - the Year of Tiger🐯！
In China, the tiger symbolizes bravery, strength, vitality and good luck. And we hope you a prosperous new year with all these best wishes! To welcome the Year of the Tiger in 2022, Homestyler is organizing a special activity for the Year of the Tiger. We provide you with a floor plan shaped like the letter "T" (for Tiger). In this room, you can decorate it with various tiger elements, for example, you can find some tiger-shaped carpets in the free Model Collection Vol68 - Funny Carpet from the Trends catalog. And you can also upload your own tiger element images as paving tiles, or as materials for paintings or pillows, to design it as a tiger element room to welcome the new year!

Of course, you can! You can design both the inside and outside the room. But please be careful not to change the length and width (the general outline) of the designated floor plan.
3: Can I add windows and doors, or other building structures like partitions to the room?
Of course, you can! You can even add more floors or basement to it.

Of course, you can!

You can refresh the page or check whether there is a problem with the network. If you still cannot upload after trying, you can add an aerial render instead to show an overview of the whole design.
