Are you thinking of having an architect create a design for your upcoming home improvement project? If so, you may have images of the designer laying out page after page of blueprints. You’ll squint at the drawings and tiny numbers, trying to visualize what they mean in real-world terms. The architect will point and gesture with their hands in effort to describe what the finished project will look like. If you have a good enough imagination, you’ll be able to see it.
Snap back to reality. Thanks to the 3D renderings used by top design-build firms today, there’s no longer a gap between “architect-speak” and your imagination. 3D digital renderings can bring your project to life.
Step Off the Page and Into Reality
For most design experts, 3D renderings provide a way to take their ideas from 2D sketches and blueprints and create a digital world to which their customers can relate. It’s easy for architects and builders to exchange ideas and design concepts with one another using terminology that’s part of their everyday job. For a homeowner engaging in a remodeling project, though, it may be harder to visualize why moving the stove to a different part of the kitchen or spending money to knock down a wall between two rooms will benefit the overall design. 3D architectural renderings do more than just tell a customer what could be done; these designs actually show them what the finished project will look like.
Move Through the World of Your Newly Remodeled Home
3D renderings are more than a single photorealistic image. Panoramic renderings allow viewers to see the area in a 360-degree view and even move through one room and into the next. This can help homeowners understand the overall feel and flow of the design. Rather than having just a general understanding that their dream home addition will have a new entryway in the living room, leading to the new master bedroom with 2 walk-in closets and a gorgeous master bathroom with a luxurious steam shower, they’ll be able to tour it all in 3D. These kinds of renderings don’t simply tell you what the project will be; they actually show you.
Interior and Exterior 3D Renderings in Amazing Detail
The wonderful thing about 3D renderings is that they do more than just display the general layout of a room. They’re wonderful for understanding how various fixtures, finishes, and furnishings will fit in once the project is complete. Are you creating a beautiful outdoor living space and aren’t sure if a pergola will look right in the design? A 3D rendering will give you a definite answer. From the tile backsplash in your dream kitchen to the bamboo flooring in your new basement space, digital technology can bring your design choices to life in stunning detail.
Make Changes Early On
One of the biggest benefits of this kind of technology is that homeowners can clearly see what the project will look like before it gets underway and they can point out any problems or items they don’t like before it’s too late. For example, if you don’t care for the style of the farmhouse sink that the builder is proposing then that detail can be changed before the sink is put on order. Maybe you initially liked the idea of wood tile on your shower walls in addition to the floor, but after seeing the renderings, you’d like to lighten things up a bit. Digital technology can help you make decisions early on in order to avoid delays down the road.
So go forward confidently into your remodeling project knowing that you won’t have to decipher a single blueprint. 3D renderings are here to help you, inspire you, and guide you through creating your dream home.
