3D Rendering: Everything You Need To Know!

Interior designers have a secret weapon when it comes to helping clients visualize their finished home. We call it 3D rendering. Many home owners are starting to use different softwares on their own and learning how to use them as they go, so they can imagine their perfected home. You might have a few questions about it, such as what is 3d rendering, why does it help, and which software should you use? Well, you’re in luck! We have answers for you. Keep reading to kill the curiosity.

What is 3D Rendering?

3D rendering is a creative process that utilizes certain software to create a 3d visualization that includes all details. The 2D image should come out looking similar to a photograph or cinematography, because you will be able to add in all the lighting and stage the entire home. Here’s an example of a 3D rendered image…

Why Does It Help?

The image helps homeowners get a realistic visual of their space, and it makes every idea come together to create one design. This also helps make more sense to the homeowner so they can decide if everything is placed exactly where they want it and have it come out exactly how they would like. By seeing this and making these decisions in a software, you can save the homeowners from making a few costly mistakes!

Which Software Should You Use?

Even though we do suggest going through a designer because of experience and design knowledge, we want to share with you the most user-friendly softwares that homeowners can use on their own. There are two that are free and very easy to use: Olioboard and AutoDesk Homestyler. You can use them for something just as simple as deciding if you want a specific piece of artwork hung on which wall at what level, because seeing it all first definitely helps save you from all that handy work and nailing into your wall repetitively in different areas.

Livable Living | 6 Decorating Tips for Newlyweds

These days when it comes to planning a wedding, interior design typically takes a supporting role. Pinterest boards are no longer sporting fun around the house DIY projects, but instead those of hairstyles and decor for the big day. And rightly so!!

So, what happens after the honeymoon? Back to reality, you have to live together?! Combine two styles into one?! Just because you love each other, doesn’t mean you have the same taste in interior design. The designers at A.Clore Interiors have gathered some helpful hints on how to help ease the tension and stress that comes along with the marriage move in:

1| Plan Ahead – There is nothing wrong with a little prior planning! As designers, we know it takes time to gather furnishings, colors, accessories, etc. You don’t have to run out and buy your whole new living room tomorrow, but it helps to have an understanding (if you don’t already) of what each other will tolerate on the decor front.

2| Create a Virtual Mood Board – This will help organize your design thoughts. There are several websites and applications that will allow you to pin your ideas to an “imagebook” or “board”. Some of our favorites are Pinterest, Houzz, and Olioboard. Warning: It is addictive. There are thousands of inspiration photos at your fingertips (literally). You will start to see what the other likes, this should be the fun stage!

3|  Make an FF&E List – This is Furniture, Fixtures and Equipment; some couples may have more than others so this varies. It will help to make a list of all the items you both have to create an inventory of furniture and appliances. This is a great way to have an organized list to sort out what will be kept and what will be sold or donated. You may make some friends and family happy on this step. You’re welcome!

4| Give and Take – You will most likely have to do some level of compromising. But is’t this true of  marriage in general? Why should interior design be any different? There are multiple ways to combine design styles into one space. We believe that not everyone fits into one particular box. Our job as designers is to find which box both clients share!! If you take that approach, you will be able to understand each other better and come out with a design you are both proud of!

5| Start All Over – Theres nothing like a blank canvas!! By getting rid of all your pre-existing furnishings, you can build the space with a fresh eye and really get the chance to combine both your styles. Over time, your home will represent your couples signature and personality.

6 | Give and Take – Huh, this one again? Yes. This step will be repeated through out the entire process!

We have only scraped the surface with advise on combining his and her styles. It has become a rare art form that the designers here at A.Clore Interiors seem to have perfected.  Far beyond the “mixture of masculine and feminine”….Here are some inspiration rooms we feel show how a mixture of styles can make a space cohesive:
