See Your Space Before It’s Built

You call it magic. We call it rendering (and a little bit of magic).

If you have a difficult time visualizing the potential of your space, be it a new build or a renovation, you aren’t alone. Most homeowners struggle to see what an interior designer or builder sees when planning a project, especially if we’re building from the ground up, removing walls, creating additions, or gutting the space and starting over.

That’s why we love using renderings. These computer-generated images let you see your actual space fully designed and finished. Let’s dive into how the rendering process works and why you need it as part of your project planning.

1. What is Rendering?

According to Wikipedia, “Rendering or image synthesis is the process of generating a photorealistic or non-photorealistic image from a 2D or 3D model by means of a computer program. The resulting image is referred to as the render.”

Our renders are photorealistic and will give you an accurate feel for your new space.

2. How does it Work?

Once we’ve started working together, you’ll be taken through the design process. The first step is to meet at your project location, where we discuss details, wants, and needs, as well as take photos and measurements. We then go back to the design studio and craft a design plan based on that information.

The design plan includes a rendering, which helps you approve the design plan or confidently request revisions. This means no more guesswork on your end and no more overthinking your next move.

3. Are Renderings Needed?

Not every project will require professional renderings. If we are refreshing the finishes in your kitchen, for example, we’ll provide physical samples of countertops, backsplash tile, and flooring for you to consider. However, if we’re creating custom cabinetry or built-ins, changing the layout, moving walls, etc., a rendering is definitely appropriate.
